Unleash the Hounds

Updated on October 5th, 2020

Pandemonium here at Redfin as 60 Minutes aired first on the East Coast and now, in a few minutes, out here in the West. When the show aired in the East, our site became very slow. Chris Neitzert scrambled to keep every server online. Michael Arrington blogged about us on TechCrunch. The hate-mail began pouring in. My mother called to ask why I didn’t get a better haircut? Everyone is answering telephones. To help handle the load, we’ve recruited some agents who haven’t quite hit their 20-deal minimum.
Rob McGarty and Cynthia Pang rolled in some burritos y beer for all the families who turned out for the Red Carpet premiere. The stars of the show are meanwhile relaxing in a special green room for screening the action:
