Are they kidding?

The words gall and audacity don’t seem to be appropriate.

Referencing the Kelo case.

From the Fairfield Weekly

With language seemingly lifted straight from The Goonies , NLDC’s lawyers wrote, “We know your clients did not expect to live in city-owned property for free, or rent out that property and pocket the profits, if they ultimately lost the case.” They warned that “this problem will only get worse with the passage of time,” and that the city was prepared to sue for the money if need be.

If you haven’t already, I urge you to sign our petition now to make sure this can’t happen in Virginia. If you have already signed, please tell a friend about it. Freedom is slipping away fast from us, we can’t allow this kind of abuse of power to go unanswered.

    Jim, I don’t work for MicroMLS, but probably could. I do know MicroMLS can work on a Mac OS with a program called, “Pocket Mac.” It allows it to aid in the Pocket PC sync and iCal, etc. If you do it, let us know how it works with the Mac.

    I was looking for a BLOG on MicroMLS or Pocket Real Estate Wireless. Can’t find one, assuming others will be looking for a mobile handheld solution to the MLS. Tired of going to and from computer to find out new MLS info and directions. Has anyone in MRIS used MicroMLS or Pocket Real Estate Wireless? I’ve used Pocket Real Estate (regular) and hate it! The wireless version does not seem too promising. Mobile listings is out of business. I hope MicroMLS is the solution? Anyone using it here?

    Tom –

    Do you work for MicroMLS? I have not found a pocket real estate solution that is compatible with Mac OSX – does MicroMLS fit?

    I use my MicroMLS constantly – even when I’m in front of my computer. It is faster to use MicroMLS than to pull up the MLS page on the computer.

    When I’m on the road or at an open house, it’s indispensable. People at open houses constantly ask for information about other places on the market, and I always have the information at my fingertips with MicroMLS. I also installed the Mapopolis feature, and when I’m on caravan, I can just enter the address into MicroMLS, then tap on Find Map, and I instantly have the location. It’s much faster than using a map (and a lot more fun).

    One day I was driving past a house with a for sale sign out front. I saw someone pull over to look at the place, so I whipped into a parking place and asked him if I could give him some information. I instantly pulled it up on MicroMLS, and voila – a new client!

    MicroMLS is simply the best innovation and addition to my real estate career ever, period. I have more than once been w/ clients and needed to find out info about a new listing and MicroMLS came through. Not only is the product great, the initial set up meeting and follow through w/ questions provided by Jerod is absolutely outstanding. He’s very patient and extremely knowledgeable. Anyone who is serious about real estate should invest in this product.
