I’m in the process of sending interview requests to some of our area’s prominent industry insiders that we frequently see quoted in the local media proclaiming that “now is a great time to buy” or other such sales pitches. We give these people a hard time on here for their comments in the local press, and I think it would be fair to give them a chance to fully defend their comments and explain their rationale to the Seattle Bubble readership.
So far I have sent requests to:
- Todd Britsch of New Home Trends
- Dick Beeson, Windermere broker and NWMLS director
- Matthew Gardner, local economist
- Dick Conway, local economist
- Dan Klusman, Master Builders Association (RightTimetoBuy.org)
- J. Lennox Scott, CEO of John L. Scott
Unfortunately, Lennox’s Director of PR has already denied my interview request with him.
If you have any additional individuals that you think we should interview, let me know in the comments. Furthermore, if you have specific questions you would like to see asked, leave those in the comments as well. I can’t promise that I’ll ask every question that is posted, but I will do my best to include the most relevant and interesting ones in the interviews.
General questions for any and all of the interviewed industry insiders are acceptable, as are specific questions for one particular person. I’d like to expand the conversation and give the “other side” a fair shake.
