One of our team members, Michael, sent us a house listing on Zillow this morning kind-of as a joke. The house was quite odd — there was a pool in the living room, a bathtub next to the bed in the master bedroom, a recording studio with only drums and a re-creation of the Oval Office.
This Zillow posting prompted a 30-minute conversation that focused mainly on one question: "Why do people put things in their houses?"
That then transitioned into how do you, as integrators in the residential space, respond to things like pools in living rooms and recording studios with only drums? Do you "consult" with the client to share the pros and cons of installing random things in houses or do you take their requests and simply implement them?
As an extension, what are some of the most random install requests that you have done? I’m actually really intrigued about this now, so email me
and let me know.
