House TalkN is a fun lookiloo at houses, houses, houses. It will answer pressing questions like, "When folks build a McMansion on a small lot, what are they compensating for?" or "Was the real estate agent drunk when they staged this house?" or "Why don't the Smiths' ever leave their drapes open when I am on a harmless walk-by?"

"Your Picks, Your Place" Sweepstakes!

While I was yukking it up learning tons at Haven Conference, I was hoping to make an "IRL" (that's fancy talk for "In Real Life" of the things I learned at Haven) connection with Apartment Guide's, Allie Burrow. 
We seemed to miss each other at the opening party, at breakfast, and during sessions! It became a joke and we started to play Twitter "Marco...Polo!" As I was leaving a session and typing "Polo" into my phone, I almost stumbled into the woman in front of me.
"Sorry, I wasn't paying attention!" She was very gracious and forgiving...she was typing madly into her phone as well. We laughed and went our different ways.
That night, when introductions were finally made, I couldn't believe it! Allie was actually the woman that I had bumped into while we were playing "Marco Polo" on our phones!
As much fun as we had on Twitter, I was thrilled to find that Allie was as fantastic "IRL"!
So...when I saw that Apartment Guide was partnering with the oh, so talented Kim Myles for "Your Picks. Your Place" sweepstakes, I had to shout about it from the mountaintops! Check out all the details below!
