It’s my favorite time of year, where I collect awards and accolades every time I turn around! Chicago Agent had the big top producers event at Trump this year, and my pals at the mag tell me they had so many people trying to wrangle an invitation to the soiree that many had to be turned away. Sponsors Trump and PHH Home Loans made sure the place was jumping, and I, of course, had a blast hanging out with agents of the highe$t caliber. C.A.R.’s big party at House of Blues was rockin’, too, and you should really read this whole issue of CA to see which brokerages
love their top-producing agents. Kiss kiss.
I don’t know what the heck Joe Z., Yo Chicago’s resident kvetch, is talking
about when he dissed Dana G. just because he posted his open house time for Sunday morning at 6 to 6:15 am. Nothing sounds better then having Dana make me an omelet after a late night out. Joe: next time, stop in and have a Denver O!
Nicks are in the news…Nicholas Gouletas was hit with another lawsuit he allegedly mismanaged the commercial space and parking area of River City. And you know that suit against Nicholas Kopely, who allegedly offered a buy-back and then allegedly reneged? Well, now MB Financial jumped on the lawsuit boat and is allegedly suing Kopley, too.
BFFs Mary O’Connor and Katherine Chez have moved from Coldwell Banker to Baird & Warner Gold Coast. Are you guys done with Bloomies yet? And just ask Mary about the lawsuit she won over Diane Silverman…stay tuned to see if Mary ever gets paid. Now that Janice Corley is with Diane over at Urban Search, we’ll all be watching to see what happens next…
On a nicer note, congrats to Irma Camacho and Katie Rienbolt, who recently
joined the Prudential Rubloff team. Irma will join Rubloff’s Libertyville office and Katie will fit right in at the Lincoln Park Clark Street office.

Must run – I’ve got to head over to Scottie Pippen’s garage sale and pick up
some beanie babies to complete my collection.
