Real Estate Brokers Are Your Friend

It's a humid, comatose Thursday morn in mid-August. They're handing out free Krispy Kremes in the lobby of our midtown office building to try and get us to sign up for some shitty new internet service. What better way to start the day than with a wild rant against realtors?

"The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers," a character in a Shakespeare play famously remarks.

I have a different suggestion: Make it realtors.

Of course, brokers in NYC are different. We love each and every one of them?especially the ones that leave little pies outside our apartments as a ploy to get the listing if we sell. Apple, people: we like apple pies.
