I flew home on Horizon Airlines University of Oregon logo-ed plane a couple of days ago. It got me to thinking. How does a Beaver fan like being trapped in a plane with the Oregon logo staring back from the wingtips. In the event of a crash, the last thing they see is the O smiling back at them. Being a Lewis and Clark graduate, the rivalry is mostly a fair weather fan thing for me. If it will help one team advance to the top of the rankings, I’m all for it. When it comes to selling real estate, does an affiliation (sports, political or otherwise) make a difference? Does a Duck think another Duck has built a better nest? Is one Beaver’s dam the best damn house on the market? I once sold a house to a die hard OSU fan where we knew the seller was a Duck (his 2004 Rose Bowl photo as a player was on the wall). We didn’t mention the connection.
Politically we could ask the same question: Obama or McCain? There are lots of yard signs out there.
This thread is mostly for fun but not totally? I’m not aware of any Realtors marketing exclusively to one specific team or political affiliation. Is there an Equal Housing Opportunity thing going on here at all? As a buyer or seller, would you choose or not choose a Realtor based on the knowledge of the agent’s support for one group over another? Would you choose one offer over another?
