And way up off Riversville, a sale.

 A $3.5 million home? The market says no.

A $3.5 million home? The market says no.

15 Orchard Hill Lane, listed at $3.5 million in July, 2014, has sold for $2.6 million.

I certainly understand why home owners don't want to hire me, or similarly brutally honest agents to list their property. In fact, they remind me of my own sweet grandmother, who told me that she subscribed to and read exclusively the Christian Science Monitor, because "they only report happy news". Even as a ten-year-old, I thought that was a totally bullshit way to run a newspaper, and I only gained respect for the publication when, years later, at college, Granny sent me my own subscription: reading it, I realized that the paper wasn't at fault, but rather, my grandmother only read its cheerful articles, and averted her eyes from the rest.

I've had "Christian Science Monitor" clients since I started in law, and they continue to exist today, though as I mentioned above, they don't hire me.
