Oh for the love of all things stupid.
Please drive me through McDonald’s so that I can make a million bucks over hot coffee.
Of course I am not a lawyer, and these are just my opinions, but I am befuddled. Apparently the Lones Group thinks there is a zebra-related Trademark violation causing business to be diverted away from them …
- The Lones Group is located in Washington state and sells marketing stuff to real estate agents.
- The Strong Team Realtors®, AKA Real Estate Zebra, is a real estate team located in VIR-FRICKEN-GINIA (Virginia) that helps consumers buy and sell homes.
First, they are a continent apart and second, they are “technically” NOT in the same industry.
Again … for the love of all things stupid.
There has been a tremendous amount of social reaction in the online communities regarding this case – specifically in support of the Strong Team Realtors®. Heck! There is even a Facebook Fan Page in Support if the Real Estate Zebra!
I am curious to see how this will all play out … and if this lawsuit, in the long run, really WAS in the best interests of those who chose to start it. We shall see.
In the meantime, go over to the Zebra Defense Fund and show your support for Daniel and the Strong Team Realtors®…
Showing homes would be MUCH more fun, if we could do it THIS way:
Thank you GeeksAreSexy for pointing this one out …
Derek and I are heading to Las Vegas to Blog World and REBW (Real Estate Blog World) where I will be speaking about how to convert online leads through blogging. The name of the class that I ma teaching is actually called, “From Click to Close – The Top 10 Point of Client Conversion – Through Blogging.”
We are heading up to Denver tonight and will be staying the night at a local hotel and then flying out to Las Vegas at about roughly the crack of dawn tomorrow morning. (We are supposed to be at the airport by 5am. Ouch.) I will post pictures from my adventures, here, in the next week or so.
We will be in Vegas until Saturday night, when we fly back in just enough time to sleep a wee bit and BE in a wedding on Sunday, back here in Colorado Springs. Oh help me.

What does it take to be the greatest real estate agent in the world? Is it the availablility 24/7 for clients and potential clients? Is it the perfect balance between professional real estate and personal life? Is it the ability to predict the market, list and sell every house and find the perfect home for every buyer? … No, that last one is impossible.
I believe that the greatest real estate agent in the world is a dedicated professional who also has a meaningful personal life. This would give them (the greatest real estate agent in the world) the ability to master the business of real estate, yet still be able to connect with their clients on a personal level.
Keller Williams teaches: God – Family – Business
I could not agree MORE with that philosophy, which is one reason why I chose to be affilliated with Keller Williams.
However, “great” is a term that means different things to different people and we all know that we cannot be all things to all people … so maybe seeking the title of Greatest Real Estate Agent in the World is a fruitless task … at least in reality. (SEO may be a different story though…)
So, although I would love to be the greatest real estate agent in the world, I have a lot to learn. Someday, maybe I will see it in lights: Mariana Wagner is the Greatest Real Estate Agent in the World. 😉
Maybe I should just go for the Greatest Real Estate Agent in Colorado Springs title …
(Idea for this fun post taken from the Greatest real estate agent in the world post by Eric Bramlett.)
