Ian Watt: Hi good morning! It’s Ian Watt. I'm actually in Tuazon Ferry Terminal right now I'm just boarding the ferry in a couple of minutes. Going over to Mayne Island where my cabin is. Going to have a day-off today and I think I deserve it I've worked hard this week. I've worked hard for the last many years so anyways I'm just getting over there right now I think it's perfect thing to do a video blog while I'm waiting i line to get in the ferry. And what I wanted to mention was if your realtor stop watching this videos, if you don't like them stop watching this videos. This videos are meant for people who are interested in them, people who are potentially selling their place and my present clients and my past clients and my future clients. They're not meant for the realtors out there. And this is my opinion, this is not the opinions of the real estate board and definitely not all the opinions have all the realtors out there either. When I'm doing as I'm posting my opinion at least I have to balls to put my opinions out there. A lot of people sugar coating what the market is and if the market is up I'm gonna say it's up and if it's down I'm gonna say it down. But I'm not gonna lie about it and what I think that is really important is that we understand that this is just a video blog. It's a diary, it's my opinion and it's a daily opinion that's put out there okay? Now it is also a piece o your own video blog of my marketing and I think all realtors should go out there and stake what their feeling about it and do your own video blog. One thing that really drives me nut is people especially some realtors out there posting comments on my comments. They're posting little things Oh I agree on this or I don't agree on that and what they're really trying to do in my opinion they're trying to get some free load marketing by putting their realtor name and across and flash in my video blogs. I just think it's really funny it's almost like big shark swimming along trying to get all the marketing left overs that's my opinion. You know I'm not gonna stop people from doing in it if they want to do it but I just think it was so funny that it's like almost going to a real estate magazine and putting your sticker on other realtors advertising in that magazine. That's what I was find but anyways if people gonna do it they're gonna do it and there's nothing I can do about it to stop them. But anyways don't get upset about my video blogs. It's just my opinion and you know what if there a thousand different realtor out there with different opinions and there's probably millions of clients that will work for me or work with you or work with the other realtor. You know what we can't be everything to be everybody I was just trying to say what I am if they will gonna work with me they will. So if your a realtor getting upset that I'm saying my comments. Take it easy relax a little bit go out and make your own marketing. Go out and have some fun and do your own video blog. My name is Ian Watt.
