Okay; I'll bite. She's a realtor ?? No capital R for her . . .! I don't even know what city this is---do you ?

What a hoot. No FLW reference---thank heaven. I'm reminded of a friend's suggested slogan for a truly awful innovation: Diet Yoo-Hoo chocolate drink. "Thank god it's not carbonated . . ." was the consensus favorite . . .

Actually, in the description underneath the video is this quote:

"...If Frank Lloyd Wright Built A Condo This Apartment In The Sky Would Be It!"

Ah---thanks. I should have known there was something.

So, any guesses on the city ? Or is it obvious, to some . . . ? I'm at a loss.

Thanks. It's certainly the most bizarre real-estate video I've seen this year. "Downtown Brown ?"

Keep 'em coming . . .!

My god - when I went to zillow, and looked at the price history for this house, I almost vomited from vertigo - on the market for seven years straight with over 30 price changes (up *and* down) and almost 10 different realtors!

It gives me vertigo to think of everything I would want to correct if I were to own this house. Dizzying, indeed.

Wood structure as wallpaper. If the beams were removed from the ceiling, would the floor above come crashing down?
