Dexter Peacock makes CNN Money!

If you've been reading some of our blogs you probably know I was the 2007 President of the National Association of Exclusive Buyer Agents. (

I spent a lot of time this year dealing with running a national professional association, but, there were some fun parts. One of which is speaking to reporters from around the country about home buying issues.

Well, when I was speaking to George Mannes at CNN Money last month the topic was on strange things that sellers were offering in negotiations. One of the strangest I had heard of locally was a peacock that had decided to live in the back yard of a Dexter home. When some of my clients visited a Sunday open house the listing agent there was quick to offer the wonderful peacock to the buyers as an added bonus. (Note to listing agents everywhere: Most buyers don't want big birds taking over their back yard. Even peacocks.)

In any case, this story made it into CNN Money at the link above.

It is a fun and interesting article for anyone thinking about home buying in this market.
