The face. The hair. The voice. Why does that real estate agent seem so familiar? Because, in that only-in-L.A. kind of way, there's a good chance the agent is also an actor, reality show personality or has had some other brush with fame. The last decade's real estate bubble and bust spawned more than 20 reality cable television shows devoted to home buying, selling and flipping, so the odds are that some of those agents will end up at an open house near you. Broaden the spotlight to music and acting, and the recognition factor climbs even higher.

Regarding "Who Pays for Fixing Defects Discovered Before Closing?" by Dian Hymer [May 15]: The seller can elect to do nothing and let the buyer accept or cancel. In this market, where there are multiple offers and backups sitting, in a good percent of the transactions we are finding this response fairly common. Also, in some transactions a nominal credit is offered, which doesn't come close to the actual cost of repairs requested. Again, the buyer can negotiate, accept or walk.
