"Bob & Sue Seller??" Better Make That, "Tom & Barb"

Realtor Freudian Slip?

One of the things I do in a Listing Presentation -- basically, a job interview for Realtors -- is give prospective clients a quick overview of the contracts that go into a deal (as a former corporate lawyer, I actually truly enjoy this part!).

Typically, I'll drop in "dummy" names for illustrative purposes, just to flesh out the forms a little bit.

Tired of "John and Jane Doe," without thinking I picked "Bob and Sue Seller."


The listing presentation isn't till Monday night, so fortunately I had plenty of time to pick two other names.

P.S. For the record, after almost nine years doing this, I can tell prospective Sellers that my track record avoiding litigation (and arbitration, for that matter) is a perfect 100%!
