8/25    My family has been using a particular real estate agent for everything,
        including home purchases, rental home purchases, and rental home
        leasing services. She's a very sweet old lady, a close family friend
        (well, more of my mom's friend) and only takes 1/2 of the commission
        that all the other agents take. She has been trying to help me sell my
        home for a while but with the current down-market I'm thinking of
        turning it into a rental property. My place is at an area that she's
        not familiar with and that she's too far (+50 miles) to show to
        prospective clients. I'm thinking of switch to a more local agent.
        I feel awfully bad for "ditching" her since she's a family friend.
        What can I do to minimize any potential misunderstanding while
        keeping our family relationship good?
        \_ so you're kicking a sweet old lady to the curb?  good job.
           survival of the fittest.  Stop by at the Salvation Army and pick
           up a used copy of Atlas Shrugged for her.
        \_ Ignore troll above and just tell her why.
           \_ #f, above advice promotes free market competition which
              is good for everyone in the long run
           \_ Actually, you might even ask her for a recommendation.
              \_ Not a bad idea, because she can still collect a referral
                 fee from the other broker.
                 free from the other broker.

3/21    Holy crap is Bay Area real estate on fire right now. I keep
        getting outbid by hundreds of thousands of dollars on places.
        \_ does more home-owners mean fewer people will be renting,
           driving the demand for rental down?          -poor renter
           \_ I am kind of doubting that, but it might work.
        \_ what is the zip code that you're bidding on?

12/21   Is it possible to use my Fastrak on a rental car?
        \_ Don't know if you're supposed to, but I think it works under normal
           situation (i.e. you're not speeding, your windshield doesn't block
           the signal, etc.)  The problem is that if the reception is bad and
           the toll tag doesn't beep, the booth will take a picture of your
           rental's license plate and fine the rental company because the

8/21    I'm trying to negotiate rent renewal and my manager came
        back saying she can't do that due to Fair Housing Laws
        that states that if they adjust price for one person
        they need to adjust price for everyone else. Is this
        an actual law or some bullshit she just made up?
        \_ Probably bullshit.

11/23   Is there any photo rental place near the Fremont or Hayward area where
        I can rent backdrops and a stand for shooting family portraits?  I
        see that Looking Glass has such rental, but I now live in Fremont. Thx.
        \_ Can't help you there, but I'm wondering what kind of camera
           equipments you have? Do you already have the strobes?
           \_ I don't have strobes, but I have two electronic flashes and two
