Happy New Year

by Osman Parvez

It's already New Years day in NZ and we're starting off our new year by catching a flight to Australia. But there's still plenty to write about our adventures in NZ. Yesterday we met with the owner of the Re/Max office in New Plymouth. Turns out the real estate business here is quite different than back in the states. For one thing, there's no central MLS. There's also limited cooperation between brokerages. Meanwhile Re/Max managed to snag about 25% market share after only two years in New Plymouth. Not bad. Stay tuned for a more in depth post.

You also may also have noticed our blog is looking a little goofy. Blogger took their new system out of beta and so we upgraded. Despite promises that the template wouldn't change, it did. So bear with us for a few days. I've got a new one in the works.

  1. I was using the Beta blogger. I actually like it. What the heck, when they take it out of beta? I even work there and I don't hear these things. Sheesh. Shows you what I know. I guess my first clue is that I don't have to sign into the beta version every time I leave a comment. That was really annoying.

    Enjoy your skiing lessons. We'll get the dogs together when you get back. Roland already weighs 30 lbs at 4 months old.
