    Your open question about rolling back Dodd Frank won’t cause a problem. The NMLS licencing and testing got rid of the “riff raft” since they can’t get a license. We only have longterm experienced people in the biz these days and we will be fine. Over regulation, disclosures BS is a big and expensive issue.

    I would love to hear your prediction for the percentage of Pokemon open house visitors that would qualify for a mortgage. 27 year old millennial, walking around in the middle of the day, playing a real-life video game doesn’t exactly scream of solid employment, stable income and assets in the bank. Just thinking out loud here…

      Hi,

      I am a 24 year old millennial who walks around after work and on the weekends playing Pokemon go because it was my favorite game growing up and I still play on all of my old Pokemon games on their original consoles. Oh and surprise! I have solid employment, stable income and assets in the bank.

      Oh and if they are any millennials walking around during the day than there is a great chance that they are a school teacher and are enjoying their summer off, like my boyfriend.

      This is a great idea and I am not too sure how many agents in my office play Pokemon Go but this is a great open house idea.

        THANK YOU for your reply. LIKE I SAID, I was just thinking out loud. And there was a reason I asked what their “prediction for the percentage” would be. Working in lending for just shy of 20 years, and currently living with how hard it is to get folks qualified, it was just the first thought that came to mind. Obviously, school teachers, fire fighters, bar tenders, etc. have work schedules that are radically different than 9 to 5’ers, so again, it was just a thought, relative to basing a marketing strategy on the concept. Regardless of what chatter comes out of DC, there are lots of folks looking for work, out of work, freshly graduated and “back in their parents’ basement, etc. Not everyone, but they are out there. I certainly wasn’t looking to come across as critical, for lack of a better word, or anything else. As I said, I was just thinking out loud and pondering the concept, especially since I, personally, just don’t have enough hours in the day for that kind of relaxation. Didn’t mean to offend, if I did.

  4. Not sure why your gen keeps getting bum rapped. I am finding them cautious with their money, smart with their career choices and very dedicated to their ideals. Thanks for the post! People need to get over their judgments.

    Hi, I’ve been a realtor for 22 years and just started playing Pokémon Go. It’s great. Both my sons played Pokémon when they were younger. Pokémon Go is a great continuation. It’s good wholesome fun.

    Warning- From Dwight Silverman article in Houston Chronicle yesterday: “if you log in to the game via your google accounts it gives Pokémon Go full access to all your google data and can: read all your email; send email as you; access all your google drive documents(including deleting them); look at your search history and your maps navigation history; access any private photos you may store in google photos; and a whole lot more. If you’ve got any data generated by a google product or service, the pokemon go can see it, change it even send it elsewhere.” Read the full article for all the scary info.

  8. Frank and Brian, I took your advice.

    I saw that someone had set a lure just around the corner from my office at the mall. I went, chatted with the 10-15 people gathered, and handed out cards to all of them. I told them 2 things a) Call me when you want to buy a house and b) Text me if you find any sweet pokemon!

    3 of the people I had mutual friends with, one was a fix and flipper (we also do hard money loans, this was a great lead).

    It was well recieved and now I have an excuse to play Pokemon! I've already gotten a few leads on where some great Pokemon are too!

    Great advice!

  9. I've got open houses this weekend! I'll try it!
    Now, lets learn how to set up these lures……

    Is today’s date April 1? I am guessing a few desperate agents will try this, but the shelf life of Beanie Babies will be longer than this fad.

  11. Sally Tugmon says:

    I'm 37 and feeling too old for this stuff and I wasn't into gaming much anyway. Now I will have to try this freaking game! It's EVERYWHERE!?!? Lol. You did it so I'll try it! Thanks for the ideas!!!

  12. Melissa Case says:

    The Lures are not in Gyms .. there placed PokeStops…and no they dont have Tuna.

    I have been playing for 4 more days than Brian, so I am more of an expert

  13. Wasn't there a show about shinny objects the other day.

  14. I am really stupid abut Pokemon…heard of it way back but don't know how to play. I downloaded the app, but am not sure how to get the lure modules? I can't find them on the app store?
    Thank you for helping an old gal out!
