Answering Reader Mail

You gotta love it … here’s an actual e-mail I received earlier today.

Hey buttmunch, when are you going to fix the pictures so they can be viewed as a slide show? Clicking on each thumbnail separately is ridiculous, and BUYERS will go elsewhere!!!

Do I need to mention no name, phone number or e-mail were given?

I’m thinking this is my response:

Thank you for your e-mail. Clicking on each thumbnail separately is ridiculous, I agree. Fortunately, the individual property pages load as a slide show and if you click on “View Full-Size Photos” on my site, the photos load and then play as a slide show. May take a moment depending on how many photos there are, but it does load.

Personally, I would think that you not having an opposable thumb may limit your functionality with a mouse (the computer mouse, not the one living with you in your mother’s basement) and you’d look at the page for the 12 seconds it takes for other photos to load, but I must be incorrect.

I very much appreciate your concern that buyers will go elsewhere and I happily invite you to do so. I even know another agent with a dog here in town who sounds like the perfect agent for you.

Best of luck in your search!
