This is a recent set of remarks for a home for sale that was
actually printed in the Multiple Listing Service. Really??
Here's what it really says: Estate home! Kitchen with
42-inch cherry-stained cabinets with satin nickel pulls, granite countertops,
center island in kitchen with bar overhang (for stools), tile backsplash,
stainless steel appliances including a 5 burner gas cooktop! Family room with
coffered ceiling, gas log fireplace with marble surround and custom mantle with
wainscoting and cherry-stained built-ins! Keeping room with stacked stone
fireplace! Exquisite master bedroom with trey ceiling and upgraded carpet!
Master bath with large cherry-stained vanity with granite countertops and tile
floors! Theater room with sconce lighting!
Not only does this "REALTOR Speak" leave a buyer scratching his head, but
it's a disservice to a seller when someone can't understand what's so great
about his home.

"My husband and I first met Michael Johnson, after finding a house we wanted to see in the Raleigh area. We didn't know what to expect or who we were meeting, but I'm glad it was Michael; he was so gentle and patient with me, and I had him going all around the triangle area, I told him what I was looking for and he did his best to take us to the homes that came close to what I wanted, and finally we found the right one. Only about a week later. Thanks Michael, for all the you did and for being there for us, even when you knew we were working with limited funds. Yes! I would recommend him to my family and friends!"
