Seven Predictions for 2020: The Rat Pack Edition

Earlier this year, Sunny and I made her third (my second) move across this great country of ours in three years, landing in Las Vegas. I have to say, so far, we’re quite in love with this city. Most of you only know Las Vegas from The Strip… which is unfortunate. It’s quite like judging […]

Quick Followup on Horiike v. Coldwell Banker – CA Dual Agency Case

A while back, I wrote about the dual agency case headed to the California Supreme Court: Horiike v. Coldwell Banker. At the time, I speculated on a bunch of things and then said we need to wait and see what the ruling is. Well, the Court has ruled and issued an opinion. The reaction from […]
