A Two Week Moratorium for Redfin Critics

[photopress:wedding_1.png,full,alignright] You are cordially invited to a two week Moratorium on “Sticking it to the Man”. I know Greg and others have been having a lot of fun poking at Redfin, but I would like to announce that Glenn Kelman of Redfin is getting married this weekend.

Glenn and I discussed not discussing anything we discussed at our little tete-a-tete. But I would be remiss if I did not publicly congratulate him on his upcoming nuptials. Let’s give him the gift of being able to focus on his Once in a Lifetime Event, by applying the old adage, “If you don’t have something NICE to say, don’t say anything at all”.

I remember the first time I heard about Redfin. I was at a listing appointment and a young couple thinking about selling their condo in Issaquah said, “Did you see this really cool site?” They pulled up Redfin on their computer and showed me how they could “fly around” looking at property. They LOVED it. You can hardly run into a buyer, especially younger ones, here in the Seattle area who have not heard about Redfin. That is a fabulous accomplishment and it is time to give credit where credit is due.

So if you have something really NICE to say about Redfin, say it here! If you don’t have something nice to say, then let’s keep it zipped for a couple of weeks, and cut the guy some slack, so he can enjoy his pre and post wedding time.

Congratulations Glenn!
