    Q. My real estate broker is asking me to sign an exclusive agreement, do I really need to sign one?

    A. Absolutely not!

    Exclusive agreements only benefit one party, the brokerage firm.  Having worked at large firms for over twenty years, I faced the constant pressure to acquire “exclusives”. Why? Real estate firms like exclusive agreements so that the firm can “lock in” the customer, “book” the assignment as recognizable revenue and include it in annual projections.

    Q. Where is the NYC neighborhood "NoMad" located?

    A.  There’s Soho and Noho, but NoMad?

    It sounds like a joke. Perhaps it doesn’t help NoMad’s cause that it’s home to the Museum of Sex and the New York Comedy Club. But NoMad does reside in New York, the land of, well, many nomads. Our nomads are different, though: they can’t bear the thought of leaving.

    The moniker is short for north of Madison Square Park; no relation to peripatetic gypsies. The name first appeared in a New York Times piece called “The Trendy Discover NoMad Land, and Move In” in 1999.
