Is Greg Swann Charles Ponzi?

Anonymous said...

I am a Realtor here in the Phoenix. I can say I’m looking to enter the blogging world, on my own time, through my own education…I really don’t have anyone’s educational / offerings on my radar right now…

CONCLUSIONS

- I believe that post in-discussion at BHB hit a tipping point, that was disturbing to many, as was myself and obviously to some of BHB’s own….

- BHB is now a Vendor, the moment you ask for my money and to attend a conference (a service) you are a vendor…which brings me to my next point.

- Although I find BHB witty and entertaining, I’m afraid I see them as JV vendor, not a Varsity Vendor.

- Why I see BHB as JV right now…

— Cheap shots. Good Vendors don’t sling mud…they simply perform to silence naysayers.

— Excellence is not achieved by putting down others. Prior to BHB wearing the vendor hat, cheap shots at vendors is toooo easy, anyone can do this. Why, good vendors don’t talk back, especially Varsity ones. Contrary to Greg’s thinking, in my mind, it does not elevate him to rip into companies or individuals, rather it does the reverse.

— Dish but can’t take it. I have to say…BHB can easily & distastefully target vendors and moreso individual people, as easy as breathing. However, the moment they received 1 post, consisting of 1 word, the hound got their panties in a bunch.

— You offended me. Simply stated, I had considered a showface at the BHB conference. Personally, I said to myself “Me too” as feeling offended. Russel Shaw was kind to apologize in some way in comment 71. But then I see Russel Shaw give me the finger in his latest post at BHB (now you want me to pay money to listen to you speak)?

NO FOR ME
I live in PHX, don’t need to fly, no hotel required and I can say I wouldn’t give BHB $25 to attend. I’m intelligent enough to make this decision on my own. It is not Dustin, it’s not those who say “Me too”. I am not easily influenced as such…its what brought BHB here in the first place (their own actions) and moreso how they dealt w/ the situation (giving me the finger).

If BHB is wanting to connect w/ me…to attend their conference, visit their blog, maybe send some buyers to Russel Shaw here in PHX, maybe allow Brian Brady to push his financial reports on my future blog (whatever the goals of those at BHB)…I’m afraid you did not connect w/ me, rather I am pushed away.

This is a very educated decision and feedback I hope those at BHB will digest and take seriously.

Here is a new realtor trick (at least new to me). A male and a female realtor acting as buyers drop by a house for sale while real buyers are taking a tour. The point, I guess, is to create the impression that there is a lot of interest in the house.

In the comments on his blog, he admits to "stupidly" insulting the bubble blog people.

Although he called us wife beaters, he still admitted he was stupid. I think thats the best we are gonna do.

I think I am bored with him now. I really thought he'd blow his brains out before admitting a mistake of any kind...

This very thing happened to me, and I mean EXACTLY like that. About 8 months ago (before I came upon HP), I was looking to buy a house, and found one that I really liked. No, I LOVED THE HOUSE. Keep in mind that the real-estate market in this area was DEAD, and I mean dead.

Well, I was supposed to meet the listing agent at the house that evening. I went to the house expecting to see the listing agent there, but, at the LAST minute, the listing agent called me on my cell phone, and said that she was going to be a little late. So, while I was waiting on her, a brand new, silver Mercedes pulled up, and out pops a male and a female who SAID they were husband and wife. They boldly (almost arrogantly) said that they were DEFINITELY wanting to buy this house. They pranced around the front yard, acting like it was theirs. The woman just sat down on the curb, and said that they would wait for the agent, because this was the house for them, too. She was talking about how she was going to do some different things to the landscaping. Her husband was saying how he was going to be using the full basement for his business. All this time, I was thinking about how DEAD the real-estate market was (and still is). Out of all the THOUSANDS of houses for sale, they chose this one,- the very evening and exactly at the same time that I was getting ready to do a walk-thru with the listing agent.

Well, I didn't know about this type of scam, but I figured that something was up. So, I told them (politely, of course) that they could just buy the house, because there were tons of them available, and that I would just look elsewhere. IMMEDIATELY, the woman actor looked at her husband(?), and said, "What do you think?" The husband(?) said, "Well, let's just go, because he's going to buy the house anyway." They hopped back into their silver Mercedes, and I haven't seen hide nor hair of 'em since that evening. I stood there in total shock as they flew out of the cul-de-sac. Less than FIVE minutes later, the listing agent shows up.

Needless to say, I didn't buy the house. I just walked away. I found out later about this scam, through a friend of mine.

And, what happened to the house? Well, it's still there - still up for sale. Sorry for the long post, but please take note that this scam does exist, and it definitely happened to me. Kudos to "anon" for posting about this scam earlier.

And, as far as Greg Swann, I say throw him to the realtors. It'll be like a bunch of cannibals eating one of their own.

Greg loves to use the "M" word when he attacks the bubble crowd. I find his writing style very self righteous and annoying, reminds me a little bit of Ann Coulter, or even adequacy.org.

http://adequacy.org

The funny thing is - and I'm spoiling the joke here - the entire adequacy website is deliberately filled with outrageous, articulate articles (for example, "From Kids To Commies: The Truth About Daycare"), intended to infuriate people. And the comments are manipulated too. (Note that the site was shutdown, on an anniversary of September 11 of course, and now exists as a live archive).

I wonder if the Bloodhound blog and Greg Swan are modelled on ADEQUACY?

I think it's safe to say that Greg Swan masturbates too (most people do).

Yea, they believe when the market turns, its going to turn at the pumped up inflated price it was in 2005, not from the depths it is at in 2035. Right, 2035 is when the market will turn, conicidentally that is the same year when Illegals will outnumber the legal and native US residents, just like 2005.
Cool.

A buyers' realtor would have to make an appointment with the sellers' realtor to tour a home or pick up a key for the lock box. You can't just walk into a house for sale. You're thinking of open houses where pretty much any crazy individual can tour a house.

The kind of frustration that leads a professional to make a public statement like that on the internet under his own name, must be immense.

That poor bastard, you should stop picking on him, he's likely to start smacking his bloodhound-ugly wife around.

After seeing her picture, I think we can all understand his unusually affectionate attraction to canines. ROTF.

I lifted this sentence right off Greg's site today in his "Investing" advice section on Phoenix RE;

"No one can promise future appreciation, but Phoenix has offered a fairly steady 6+% return since the end of W.W.II. In recent years, appreciation has been much higher. Over the last year, it has eclipsed 65% for the kinds of homes we’re talking about."

You'd think Greg would at least update his site annually to reflect the current market conditions. Its one thing to predict the future wrong but to have the present wrong is laughable. Greg’s excuse of course for his wildly incorrect market predictions are that he’s talking about the long run, the bigger picture, things we sock puppets can’t understand. What Greg doesn’t understand, to the great financial misfortune of his investors, is that money has a time value component. Doe’s anyone know if this clown vomiting investment advice even has a community college degree? I’d venture to guess not or at best a Liberal Art’s dropout. No offence to any creative people with a BA in the Arts.

I don’t believe I’ve come across a blogger with this special combination of arrogance and stupidity since Casey Serin. Like Serin, sometimes I have to check in on poor Greg just to see what new low he’s managed to achieve.

this is not quite true - these days lockboxes also have combinations instead of being keyed. theres even these new electronic kind but i've went in quite a few vacant bank foreclosure homes where the realtor gave me the combination to the lockbox right over the phone. some will some wont
