There’s always something to howl about

The Carnival of Real Estate . . .

…is up at Sadie’s Take on Delaware Ohio.

Host Toby Boyce does a truly amazingly phenomenal job as judge — and I’m not just saying that because our own Jeff Kempe won with The Imperative of Divorced Commissions, Part 2: The Inherent Value of Free.

Toby used the idea of a golf tournament as his theme, with the chart above illustrating the competition.

And the competition was fierce, with many first-quality contenders. Wheel you golf cart over to Toby’s place to see what I mean.

    Oh, my. Does this mean a raise?

    Greg, you bring out the best of everyone here, and I’m honored to be among so many superb thinkers. It’s tough to keep up with lines like “I’ve never been to a party I didn’t want to leave before I ever got there”, but we try.

    My hat’s off to you, Jeff. This is seven wins for us out of fifty Carnivals of Real Estate. It would be cool if we could knock it up to a solid 20% in the second year, but the competition’s getting much stiffer. That’s a tribute to what the Carnival has achieved, I think.

    Mucho Congrats are in order. You took the top prize in a VERY difficult field. The entry list looks like the All-Star team.

    Toby did a super job judging and his creative use of golf brackets was cool.

    Thanks everyone for the kind words. I enjoyed going outside the box on this one. Now I just need to win a Carnival of my own — I’ve been close – runner-up twice – to winning the CORE and my goal for next week is to win one.
    Have a great week everyone!
