 Well it’s safe to say I am a Mortgage nerd.  I love my job and the industry I am in.  This love also causes me to find mortgage humor hilarious.  So recently I came across the website MortgageHumorShop.com and the hilarious shirts they offer for sale.  Some of the witty comments on their shirts are: DU>LP, TRID Happens  and  FHA killing Trees since 1934.  And the list goes on.  Of course mortgage humor is a not for everyone, but if it is for you then this website is a must.  I would love to stick around and talk more about my appreciation for mortgage jokes, but I have to run and order my two shirts from them.  And let’s be honest, sometimes TRID does happen!

I don't live in Realtor-World, but I do have a passport with a work-permit. I refer to Realtor-World because it is its own "place" with its own language, culture and customs.  I'm used to being a travelor in a foreign land. I grew up overseas... well, actually I was born overseas .. in Tokyo.  Surprising to many because a 6'0" green-eyed blonde does not usually "agree" with their preconception of what someone born in Tokyo is going to look like.  I spent very little time actually inside the United States during my growing-up years, migrating frequently between Germany and Japan,  and finally graduating in Berlin (during the Cold War, when the wall was still up). You pick up things fairly quickly when you live this lifestyle and you quickly find it is to your benefit to be open, flexible...

He was talking so fast I could barely understand what he was saying .. but heard him yell..."I got me a throw-down listing!" and "Judith...how fast can you get over here??!!!"And I'm thinking to myself .. "What the heck is a throw-down listing?"  I finally got him calmed down and this is how the story unfolded ..... Three weeks ago I had created SMARTePLAN marketing materials for a $1.2 M home for him -- and it was already  OPTION PENDING.   What happened is two blocks down and one block over was a man getting ready to sell his home.  Part of this home sellers "getting ready".... means he was up on our MLS sneaky-peeking at all the current homes for sale ... in his neighborhood .. and around "his" price range .. and he saw THAT home in the MLS with the SMARTePLAN. So he called Ben Fisch...
