“Zorba, have you ever been married?”
“Am I not a man?” Zorba says. “Of course I’ve been married. Wife, house, kids, everything — the full catastrophe!”
Zorba wasn’t saying marriage or having children was a nightmare. He was reflecting on life, with its sadness, tragedies, trials and tribulations.
When I read the news about NAR and realtor.com amending their marriage agreement, Zorba came to mind.
From a business angle, the history of realtor.com fits the bill of the “full catastrophe.” It’s a narrative of fear, boldness, criminality, insider dealing, greed, success and secrets — and in this case a troubled marriage.
Lately, revisionist history abounds about this epic real estate insider story.
