Superstar Surfin' Realtor, Rory Siems in Laguna Niguel, wrote a funny post about being five degrees away from Warren Buffett. Rory, as an agent for PruCal, is a sort of employee (he's an independent contractor in a legally supervised environment) of a subsidiary of a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway.
I thought about how I was linked to The Oracle of Omaha:
1- I have worn Tony Lama boots and Fruit of the Loom undergarments
2- I have financed a Clayton home for clients.
3- One of my college buddies learned to fly at Flight Safety.
4- I eat at DQ...burgers, fries, and ice cream....See's Candies, too.
5- Yup...I even wore Garanimals as a kid.
As you can see, I have no direct link to Warren other than as a consumer. But...WAIT!
Lauren Vo Zelakawiewicz thinks that Warren Buffett and I think alike. Thanks Ms. Z!
Well, we differ on our opinion of beachfront real estate in California but I'll take what I can get.
