Weekly Blend: December 20, 2013

The Weekly Blend is your ‘weekly’ source covering real estate news and stories you may have missed. Our hard-at-work Weekly Blend crew scours the web, newsgroups and forums looking for obscure, bizarre, interesting and informative real estate (or real estate related) stories. If you have one you’d like to contribute, please post it in our comments section or Tweet about it using the hashtag #WeeklyBlend. So, brew yourself a fresh cup of coffee and enjoy these stories…maybe even share them with friends or colleagues. Happy reading!

Here are my weekly picks:

Top 10 lists are always popular this time of year and here’s The Hollywood Report’s list of Hollywood’s Top 25 Real Estate Agents.

Christmas light displays are a hot feature this time of year. Here are three to choose from. Have yourself a very Metal Christmas (with some NSFW language). Christmas lights display set to ‘What Does The Fox Say?’ And this one is actually set to Christmas music.

Jonathan Baker, our former Speech Writer, contributed to the development of speeches, advertisements, and communications to our membership. Our staff knew him as the go-to guy at 200 Catherine for some comic relief. Prior to joining CREA, Jon worked in the radio industry in Ottawa. If you meet Jon, be sure to ask him to tell you about his encounters with many famous musicians while volunteering at a local music festival for more than 10 years.
