I looked up some on youtube.  "Real estate in real time"  If those were the ones, the spokeswoman was watchable.  The commercials seemed to convey the desired messages.  Just wish they'd promote using agents instead of their website, but hey why would NAR benefit it's agents.

I don't think they are very strong and think the Zillow ads are much better even though they leave the Realtor out of the equation.

They have almost always been lame.  I say "almost always" because I have not seen them all and perhaps one of them isn't horrid.

The ditzy blonde? Silly?  Now why would you say that? 

Embarrassing is the word I use.
