I alluded to it last week – Lunch with Lawrence Yun

And now it’s public. Several Virginia bloggers (myself included) will have lunch next week with Lawrence Yun, named today as one of the country’s top 10 economists.

This is an opportunity for many of us to ask (and naturally write about) candid questions of the man who is trying to restore confidence, credibility and relevance to the office of Chief Economist of the National Association of Realtors.

    Quite a coup. I have to say I’m starting to be impressed more and more with Yun.

    I am glad he is meeting with the bloggers. Although, most of these bloggers seem to be members of the Realtors cheerleading sqaud.

    David –

    Thanks for the comment. I have to disagree, strongly, with your assertion that “most of these bloggers seem to be members of the Realtors cheerleading sqaud. (sic)”

    I for one, have a track record, as do most if not all of the other bloggers, of rightfully calling on NAR to dispense with the BS, sunshine-and-roses “analyses” and to start talking candidly about the market. This year, Mr. Yun seems to have started to do just that, but there’s clearly room for improvement, as with anything.

    What would you ask him?

    Thanks again for stopping by and commenting.
