We Need Some More Schitt’$ Creek, Please!!!

Most fans already knew this and millions witnessed this morning on The Today Show that the awesome show, Schitt$ Creek, will be no longer.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

I stumbled across this show a while ago and feel like a multi-level marketing drumline for this show.

I understand when actors and actresses want to end on a high note, and when Jonathan Michael (Johnny Rose) said that he’d like to play a little more golf. I get that. That said, this cast and crew, in my opinion, have a hit that hasn’t even started yet.

The storyline is endless.

Consider this: Let them be rich, again! Wouldn’t it be fun to see how extravagant the producer’s imaginations would go and how fun it would be to watch these characters in New York highrises drinking zillion-dollar scotch, and hanging out in ultra level suites at sports stadiums, Polo Matches, riding horses on fox hunts, The Masters, or having David be a guest of Jerry’s World in Dallas in his sweaters? Let Moira and Alexis go shopping on Rodeo Drive or Worth Ave. landing their helicopter at Mar-a-Lago or the grounds at The Breakers. Summer at The Hamptons and winter at a Palm Beach or Miami. They could have Prince Henry and Meghan Markle on the show in some way (I heard they are avail).

For me, the show has been a great late-nighter as the 20ish minute time bracket is just right. If I’m not asleep by the time the first one ends, it’s just easy to pop another.

Here’s the thing. I wish they’d let it go mainstream before they hang it up. The story, combined with this cast is so damn funny. Don’t punch me, but I’d rather watch Schitt’s Creek than Friends and Seinfeld back when. Schitt’s Creek is a little like Married with Children, but the Roses were mega-rich first and kept their ultra snob on when they were “broke.”

I can see a movie coming from Schitt’s Creek.

Come on, Schitt’s Creek. Let’s watch the Rose Motel grow into the Five-Star Rose Hotel chain (or AirBandB giant)!

The story is endless, IMO.

Think About This For A Few Moments.

That said, I’m not sellin’ ya, I’m tellin ya, KW’s recent domination is now separation, and you are about to know and love it.

Cadabra/Amazon Birthplace is For Sale – Complete w/ Original Mailbox.

Some of you may have seen that the home where Amazon.com (first called Cadabra) was famously born is now on the market for sale. See the article below as first reported by www.GeekWire.com.

Thank you!

Franklin Jones

Silicon Valley might have the HP Garage, but Seattle has the Amazon Mailbox.

Amazon’s first home, a residential property at 10704 N.E. 28th St. in Bellevue, Wash., was listed for sale Monday at an asking price of $1,488,888, complete with an historic artifact on the curb.

Much of the 3-bedroom, 1.75-bath house has been renovated since Jeff Bezos rented the home in the mid-1990s for a venture then known as Cadabra Inc. However, the property still holds an oversized mailbox, believed to have been used by Bezos and the company’s early employees to accommodate the book catalogs they were receiving for the online bookstore, later renamed Amazon.com.*

The mailbox has no official historical designation, but the buyer, whomever it turns out to be, will be informed of its significance, listing agent Pat Sullivan of John L. Scott Real Estate assured GeekWire when reached via phone this afternoon.

“It is the very first Amazon address, and it always will be,” Sullivan said.

As tech journalists in the Seattle region, we’ve been keeping tabs on this house for years, given the historical significance, and we often cite it as inspiration for startups. After all, from this modest suburban home emerged one of the most valuable and influential companies in the world.

Then again, maybe modest isn’t the right word anymore. The asking price is more than double the $620,000 that the home fetched a decade ago. However, Sullivan said he didn’t put a premium on the price as a result of the history, and the listing price is in line with current market value. The growth of Amazon and the rebound of Microsoft have helped to create a surge in home values over the past several years in many parts of the Seattle region.

The lead photo on the listing does include a note that the home was “The birthplace of Amazon,” and Sullivan of course won’t be disappointed if the home’s history results in a bidding war that escalates the price beyond the listing price.

Here’s the full description from the listing.

Magnificent in West Bellevue! This charming Craftsman was rebuilt in 2001 w/ an enormous great room that’s perfect for entertaining! It boasts 13’ vltd pine ceiling & river rock fplc. Fabulous granite & maple kitchen entices the cook. Master suite w/divine tiled shower. Hardwoods, crown mldg, lots of skylights & natural light. Meticulous setting, big party deck w/ hot tub, fenced yard, 10×20 strg shed. Very well cared for! A slice of history-Jeff Bezos started Amazon in the garage in the 1990’s!

Hey, wait a second, isn’t a certain richest person in the world in need of a new place to live right now? Now that would be going full circle!

Open houses are scheduled from noon to 2 p.m. Wednesday and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, and you never know who might show up. Offers are set to be reviewed a week from today.

*Amazon changed its name from Cadabra, a reference to “abracadabra,” after people on the phone misheard it as “cadaver.”

Proud To Announce Keller Williams Palmetto To Columbia, South Carolina!

Not long ago Amanda Payne, Elizabeth W. Ross, and Amy Ackerman Cartin and I opened our eyes, spread our wings and jumped to what we thought was simply a better model and opportunity for our little team.

Well, that was the first of many dominos to follow, and if you’ve ever read The One Thing, you know what I mean by that.

As you may have seen on social media outlets, I’m ecstatic to announce the Columbia, SC residential real estate brokerage landscape officially changed this week. 

What’s Going On:
Franchise: Keller Williams – Austin, Texas. On December 28, 2018, we received the email from the #1 real estate company in America. We are officially and forever Keller Williams Market Center #1128. 

Location: 1523 Huger Street (The former Cyberwoven location). We are located at the corner of Huger and Taylor Streets, which is one of the busiest corners in-town and one of the main thoroughfares into Columbia. 

I would argue that the office is the best and most beautiful real estate office in the Midlands. Further, it will be THE most recognizable real estate brokerage in the Midlands (the minute we put our signs up) as the traffic count is in the tens of thousands.  


Further, the location is super accessible to anything Downtown/Forest Acres, Lexington via US1/378/I-20, Lake Murray/Irmo/Chapin via I-26, and NE via I-77. 

Franchise Name: KW Palmetto. This part of the process experienced a lot of back and forth. Most of our REALTORS didn’t love a geographical stamp such as “Downtown,” or, “Midtown,” as our agents work the entire Metro area. They also didn’t prefer terms such as KW Legacy and/or KW Professionals. 

That all said, since “KW Columbia, SC” was already taken, respectively, we simply took the broader/statewide route. 

As we traveled around the country we loved, “KW Bluegrass,” and, “KW Keystone,” which are named for their respective state nicknames, and thought the concept was very applicable. After all, we are the KW Market Center that sits in the shadow of the statehouse dome (we can see the dome from our parking lot).

Launch Leadership Team: Operating Partner (OP) – Scott Taylor, Team Leader (TL) – Matt Carroll, Broker In Charge (BIC) – Peggy Fowler, Market Center Administrator (MCA) – Brenda Meyer

Agent Leadership Council (Voting Members) – Eric Simons, Penny Broach, Peggy Fowler, Matt Caroll, and me. (Anyone and everyone is encouraged to attend and participate in ALC meetings and discussion, BTW.)

I’m proud to post on this blog that KW Palmetto will be opening with somewhere between 40 and 55 REALTORS. A lot of the timing will depend on individual agent’s contracts with banks, other lending institutions, property management companies, and foreclosure management relationships, et al. Others REALTORS will be joining soon as they didn’t want to have to transfer their license twice. I don’t blame them.

Check out who is already part of this new Market Center (in no order) – Eric Simons, Peggy Fowler, Penny Broach, Liz Gaymon, Alex Roberts, Dale Roberts, Amanda Q. Payne, Renee Royall, Daniel Furtick, Kendall Walsh, Brad Dampier, Bethany Way, Sarah Penn, Shane McCormack, Katherine Wrisley, Eric Tucker, Paige Haas, Elizabeth Literati, Richard Pollard, Joanie Hart, Elizabeth (Liz) Black, Madison Gantt, Amy Peterkin, Susie Watts, Victoria (Tori) Elmgren, Candy Limehouse, Mike Tredway, Lona Tredway, Laura Hooper, Matt Carroll, Peggy Downie, Sallie Pierce, Anna Smith, Tricia Fowler, Paula Cooper, Kaylyn Fowler, George Wrisley, Craig Augenstein, Brenda Meyer, Amy Ackerman Cartin, Shannon Nilson, Jason Fields, Scott Taylor, Elizabeth Woodring Ross, and me.

Matt Carroll did some math, and to give a big picture of what is happening right now, if the REALTORS in the room for our inaugural meeting on Tuesday were our own brokerage last year (2018), we would have closed $190,000,000ish in sales volume, ranking this office #3 in the Midlands.

I’m going to let that soak in for a minute…

…#3 and we haven’t even installed our signs on the door.

We will be the #2 office in the Downtown area in agent count and sales volume – Day 1. 

This all said, I want to extend a visual/metaphor I got from a panel from a national KW event I attended last year. On the panel were Bob Lucido, Lance Loken, and Ben Kinney…whom all service between 1,500 and 2,500 families per year. As they were leaving the stage, Ben Kinney stood up and shook Gary Keller’s hand and with the microphone still on his lapel, said (paraphrase), “Thank you for providing the highway that we can drive our big trucks on….”

This week, with the opening of MC#1128, the Keller Williams highway has been extended a little more. Whether you want to be a chevy, a tank, a team bus, an 18-wheeler, or a damn kick-n-go, the highway has been extended and the lanes of real estate technology, training, and growth are open to change more lives through real estate.

A THANK YOU to our clients and related service industry partners such as lenders, insurance agents, inspectors, contractors, and closing attorneys for making this all happen!

A gigantic SHOUT OUT to Keller Williams – Columbia, SC (MC #684)…which is the highest producing office in the Midlands, by far, BTW. The awesome leadership and fantastic REALTORS of the Irmo office could not have provided a better professional and real estate selling experience as we fly off from their nest.

Thank you and Grand Opening plans at our new Market Center are underway!!!

It’s amazing what can happen if we will just push the first domino…
