Zillow & HGTV and how they have effed up real estate




Scott is really HGTV & I am Zillow – alot like Donny & Marie…She’s a little bit country and he is a little bit rock & roll.

Zillow & HGTV

How Joanna Gaines & Al Gore have effected our real estate market.


Joanna & Chip Gaines – Fixer Upper 

My belief is that HGTV is had far more impact on our business than Zillow. Buyers, although there are more of them than there are houses, are very picky about the condition and the look and the quality of the home. Joanna Gaines has single-handedly fudged the system for many sellers. Folks want gray walls.. or greige walls and not blue walls. Period. They want new sinks, faucets, baths, roofs, hvac, ship lap and they want it at a discount. They don’t/cant pay for it themselves. Many new home buyers have great credit and no cash, hence the discount. Scott is our person that tells the seller.. this is what buyers want. This is what you can get for your house if you put a little more $$$ into it and do it fast… If you don’t, you miss the market.


Zillow & Its Zestimate 

Zillow can’t get inside the house.. so there numbers are false. How false is up for debate and the market. Zillow has found a niche that no one has been able to beat. Valuing a home and not calling it an appraisal. An appraisal requires a license and education. Zillow uses an “al gore rhythm” to provide the #zestimate. Buyers like to use the number, or #zestimate, as a tool to negotiate. My personal opinion is that Zillow is for entertainment. All real estate is local.  Zillow only can look at numbers.  It is automated.  Zillow doesn’t know if you have 17000 mountain dew cans inside of your house or not.  Folks have been tried to sue Zillow for messing up values and buying/selling opportunities and Zillow has proven itself to be teflon.  See elow to see a bedroom full of #mountaindew cans.

We talk inflation, mortgage rates, monetary spending… kind of not funny funny… Not as bad as if Angus & I sang the National Anthem… in our sexy lounge singer voice.. You get the picture.  How does monetary policy, “full” employment, higher wages and interest rates effect rentals, investments and buying or selling a home… You ask.. we answer 🙂

Our Garnet & Gold is always fun & sassy.

proof brewing




Our Garnet & Gold segment featured Proof Brewing Creatures in the Dark Stout for     Patty.  I really like this stout.  It was sweet and tangy.  For me, the finish was definitely coconut.  It is a white chocolate, cinnamon, coconut stout.  It was delicious.  It would have been great after a meal or in a flight with other beers.  I didn’t taste the white chocolate and you could smell the cinnamon.  Angus says @proof is a movement!


Angus chose Bimini Twist IPA from Three Daughters Brewing.   If you listen, you know Angust LOVES IPA beers.  Angus told us the hops makes the IPA refreshing like a bimini sea breeze… He sell it, doesn’t he???  The brewery is located in St. Petersburg, FL .  I think the logo and the can are beautiful!!!

Once again!! Thank you for listening!!

Patty & Angus talking feminism

pattys playhouse

We had a short show due to the Florida Gator game pre-show (3 hours of it) on starting at 11:30 a.m.   Those guys can talk 4 EVER!!!

So, Angus & I took a break from the hype and chatted about women and marching and feminism.  All in all, one of our finest… no Garnet and Gold…just chatting about the “why” of the women’s march.  Why did they march? Can anyone tell us????

I am convinced that if you cannot explain ‘WHY’ you are marching or protesting or resisting, you cannot grow the #movement.  As a female, conservative/libertarian, I would not have felt comfortable marching at the women’s march in Tallahassee.  It wasn’t for “women”.  I am presuming (because they didn’t state their why) they are marching for liberal, progressive women and not for women like myself.  Just a thought.  To really grow their movement, they should be more inclusive and they are not inclusive.  I am not sure why they don’t state their why.  I don’t know if they even know what their why is… What i do know is that people will join you and help you if you tell them why you are doing what you are doing.

There is a book by Simon Sinek, “Start with a why”  that gives every group a path to grow.  It gives every entrepeneur the path to grow.  It gives every student and business and political party the path to grow.  You must start with your why or you will fail.  You may not fail right away… It will be a slow and painful deatht that does not have to occur.

We missed our Garnet & Gold spot thanks to the Gators… :/ and had fun anyway!  We thank you for listening!

Happy Birthday Angus!

Ben’s Pick – Deep Brewing Hoptopus

Garnet & Gold

Patty’s Pick – La Terre Chardonnay

The house wine at Bonefish Grill
and Hooked on Harry’s

I had this wine at an event catered by Mad Social held at Hearth & Soul
in Market Square, Tallahassee, FL The event was for the local United Way of the Big Bend

As soon as I saw the wine, I wanted it.. You have to order the wine and have it shipped to you.. not in stores.. However, it is cheap.. It is like $8.50 a bottle… and Bonefish charges $6.50 a glass.. I can do that math!

Patty’s Anniversary on the Playhouse; Seller’s Pricing

pattys playhouse

This episode is celebrating our one-year anniversary in the #playhouse
We have had 51 unique and fun radio shows/podcasts and we hope you have enjoyed.

We talk the David Knox method of pricing a home. David Knox Business
Knowing if you utilize a Realtor®, the Realtor® is not in control over the market, the condition of the home, the location, the buyer’s wants/needs or the terms of the market. The Realtor® is in control of “marketing” the home.

The buyer determines the value when placing the offer. The seller has a choice to accept, reject or counter. The market analysis is the “test” of the market or in some cases an appraisal is utilized to determine list pricing of the home.

Some items we know do not determine value – the sellers wants to net, the seller has invested X dollars into the home, the seller is moving and “needs the money”…all of these are conditions of the negotiation and do not effect the value of the house.

The value of the house is only determined by one’s willingness to pay for a home. Period. The end.

The Realtor® is asked to market a home and sell it on a “contingency” basis. The real estate agent is not paid for their work until the transaction has settled. This ensures the real estate agent is invested financially and personally into the getting the most money for the seller in the easiest and simplest way possible. That is our goal. If the home does not sell, it is not always a reflection of the agent. According to the National Association of Realtors, the price of the home is 80% of the marketing. National Association of Realtors

Angus’ Pick  – Proof Mango Wit

Angus enjoys his in the summer! It is a refreshing beer and its not super expensive for craft beer! It has a 5.2 alcohol content and a great beer out by the pool with my friends!

Patty’s Pick – Jim Beam Twice Barreled Bourbon 


I love this bourbon.  It is smooth and tastes great by itself or with a mix.  I prefer ginger ale with my bourbon or whiskey.  This bourbon is distilled in Clermont, Ky and is aged for 4 years plus secondary aging!  Good Stuff


Thank you for listening!
