Bob Curtis, R.I.P.

There are  a number of comments  below under the Goat F*** posting, as an off topic subject remarking on Bob Curtis’s death. Bob was a heck of a guy and I’m really sorry to learn of his passing.  He ran an excellent real estate agency, Curtis Associates, in Old Greenwich  before selling it to a chain (Prudential? Coldwell Banker? – still great people there, regardless), served as head of the P&Z, was a mentor to me, and was a hell of a sailor and a damn good shot. Good guy.

No action

As of 3:30, we had no reported  contracts. That jibes with my own experience – I’m showing  bank-owned properties and short sales, but no one is interested in conventionally priced homes.  Bad news for sellers.

My internet connection has been acting up all day  so posting  has been light. In fact, I may call it a day and see if tomorrow doesn’t bring better tidings.

Goat F**K at Town Hall next Tuesday, Nov, 23, 7: 00 PM. on P&Z changes

Come along, and learn how you  are being screwed. Will  FAR Master Franklin Bloomer be there? I don’t know – he’s got his house in Riverside for sale, via divorce, and with any luck,, the man is out of here, but he has persisted, like a virus, for 50 years, so I’m guessing he’ll find a way to stick around.
