    There was an inexcusable mistitling of a book on page 182, one that makes me question the authority of the rest of the author's opinions. She refers to the book, Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House erroneously as "Mr. Blandings Buys His Dream House." One wonders if the author is reimagining this classic as a real estate transaction nightmare (Buy) as opposed to the construction nightmare (Builds) that this book is about.

    More of a memoir then anything that would help a budding real estate investor, but still, it was the first book I finished reading of my stack borrowed from the library probably because it was easy to pick up and entertaining. Loved the authors voice.

    Property seems to be the hot topic these days, especially with the endless rise in property prices and the recent regulation changes. That said, the thought of becoming a real estate broker has crossed many a mind on this tiny island with a bulging demand for homes.

    The title drew me in and the writer was funny, but I'm not sure I learned anything that I didn't already know - career changes are hard, flipping is hard, you gotta hustle as a freelancer, things are better when you have a supportive spouse and bosses who want to help you succeed. I wouldn't recommend it.

    a fun read, but not what I expected. I thought she'd talk more about her experience as a real estate flipper, but that was short-lived. most of the book is really rant about selling real estate in Manhattan, and then devolves into very loosely edited version of her columns from other publications. good real estate advice, though! a fun read, but not what I expected.

    I love this book and not just because my best friend wrote and I'm a minor character in it. It's funny and also quite touching in places and also has lots of advice to help you buy or sell real estate. Plus it only costs 10 bucks on Amazon. You should all buy it!

    Not a bad quick read with good tips/thoughts on buying real estate from a blogger who broke into the tough NYC realty business not long ago. It's actually also chock full of various resources (other blogs, websites, books) worth checking out - too bad there is no bibliography.

    This book provides a lot of valuable information whether you're a buyer or seller of real estate. It's a great book to have to refer back to for the author's helpful tips.

    The first half of this book I seriously questioned myself as to why I was reading it. However it did pick up around the middle and I found the last few chapters interesting.

    Based a lot on blog posts, it's somewhat repetitive but a fun read if you're in the industry or always wanted to be a realtor! Based a lot on blog posts, it's somewhat repetitive but a fun read if you're in the industry or always wanted to be a realtor!
