“Hi, I’m a reporter from The Washington Post” was the beginning of the voice mail. My heart rate rose as I thought about all the negative articles that seem to appear week after week in its Real Estate Section. The sky is not falling down and homes are selling. This is a normal market and I thought perhaps I’d have an opportunity to explain that.
I called the reporter, Nancy Trejos, back and we met for coffee recently on a cold windy afternoon. I feel I have an obligation to voice my observations and knew this would be a good opportunity to do so. I enjoyed our conversation and she did quote me.
Hopefully I’ll have more opportunities to voice the sound of reason in what seems like a chorus of pessimistic news.
