House of Cards
Realtor solicitation notices are on the rise. A few years back these cards came once every six months -- now they are a weekly occurrence.
Recently I started monitoring them. Sure enough they arrive in patterns, as if the realtors sat down to decide who had the first and third weeks of the month, and who had the second and fourth.
Paul Eviston (above, with the Chauncey Gardiner channel changer) is the reigning king of housing sales in my neighbourhood. Prior to Paul, it was Robin Vrba, who has since taken her magic to New York City and left her trapline to protégé Sayo Nickerson (below, centre).
As much as I appreciate Sayo's emphasis on teamwork ("Team Nickerson"), I would be more convinced of her sincerity if, when composing her team pictures, she had everyone in the same room at once.
