The Kid Won’t Stay Out of the Photos

January 30th, 2009 · No Comments

Cluttered bedroom.  Look in the mirrored headboard and you’ll see the reflection of a young boy wearing a blue shirt.  He was standing right next to the photographer.

Imelda Marcos’ Closet?

January 30th, 2009 · 4 Comments

Imelda Marcos, the wife of the president of The Philippines, had amassed some 2,700 pairs of shoes.  Here’s a Phoenix home seller who has amassed 51 pairs of sneakers.  Now, what people buy is none of our business, but when selling a home, buyers will point to this shoe collection and that’s all they will remember about the house.  It then becomes the “shoe house” and not the “really nice house” or the “incredible kitchen house.”

At least 100 sleeveless t-shirts.  Do you wake up in the morning and think, “I’m gonna wear a white one today.  OK, that one will do.  Wait, no, how about that white one?  Or maybe that white one?”
