Dustin and Anna Luther over at Rain City Guide have listed their cute Ballard Bungalow with L.T.D. Real Estate for $495,000 and has augmented the typical marketing with listings on Googlebase and Craigslist (so far free, but charging NY brokers $10 a listing — still about 10 x less than the local newspaper.)

Rich Barton, the CEO of Zillow has finally put his Madison Park home on the market. He alluded to this earlier in the month, and there was speculation he might list with John L. Scott. I’m happy to report that he listed his home with Gordon Stephenson, Managing Broker with Real Property Associates and on the Board of Directors with Zillow. Well done, and good luck on the sale!
Redfin announced their first entry into their Hall of Shame, CBBA’s own Ron Waxman. I’m sorry to report I did NOT make this list. But I’ll try harder and hope to see my smiling face there sometime soon!
