A Day in the Life of a Realtor (Vol. 4): A Slice of Mid-Century Americana

(Small CBS single-family home built on a large canal-front, rhomboidish-shaped lot in North Westchester circa 1959.)

David Mijares has to physically inspect the structure’s interior.

We gotta complete a BPO. You know, a Broker Price Opinion.

See, the bank owns this property. Yes, the same bank that carelessly lend stitch (i.e. money) to the substitute teacher that doubles as alcoholic beverage promoter at the local sports bar on mid-week evenings cause “baby gotta eat”. The same bank that got in touch with an asset manager that got in touch with us so that we could provide them with an opinion of value on this piece of property before the chosen listing agent puts it on the market for sale.

The Jewban that has Matzo Ball Soup and Brisket for Passover, but’ll tear up that lechon on Noche Buena faster than you can say “Homeboy, we’re celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ tomorrow.” The same one that started a blog on March 19, 2008 and hasn’t put thought to keyboard since.) goes to the property and does his thing.

    What you talking about Willis???

    I have a house with almost that exact same kitchen minus the wallpaper. It is also in Westchester. It might of been the same builder.

    I think the shed in the back is in better shape! Then they point the finger at the Broker! Shame on the lenders.

  3. Hey Adrian!! It was such a pleasure to meet you today and to find your awesome blog! Love to read opinions and people that are not afraid to express them.

    Someone has to be at fault you know, it could be a never ending circle of finger pointing….the reality is sad.

    It was certainly a pleasure meeting you as well.

    It’s nice to see that there are others who choose to use their voice in a meaningful way.

    See you around.
