Am I the only one that finds it funny that in pic 8, in the red shirt next to Matt is David G? and I'm almost sure that the person on the left is Drew? Am I missing something? Do I get some free zillow EZad dollars for getting that one?

(also, #2 on the left is Brian Wilson with Zolve.......great guy, I had a pretty good conversation with him at the NY Times party......speaking of which, where was the Zillow team for that???)

Sara, I don't know most of these people, but I still enjoyed looking at the pictures.  Thanks for sharing.

I agree with Bob, that looks like the back of Drew's head (at least what I would picture the back of Drew's head to look like, I've never met him LOL) 

And #4 on the right seems to be Jeff Belonger.

Oops, yeah probably should have picked up on #8 there.. since I work with them.  Maybe if the two of them ever took the time to read my blog.... :) 

No invite to the NY Times party, if only I would have known someone with an invite to get me in.....

It was great to finally meet you. I think I can help with a couple of pics
With me was Brian Wilson, Zolve.Com on the left and Chris from Zolve .Com

The guy to the immediate right of Dan Green is Scott, he is a broker from NYC and I CAN NOT FIND HIS CARD....Ugh - Scott, if you see this, email me mprice@mlbroadcast.com 

I think the two guys that are talking to Matt Heaton actually slipped into the bar and were trying to get free beer and hit on all of the women, but I'm not real sure :)

The last pic is easy, thats either Joel Burslem, The XBroker, Jeff Turner or ...... Come to think of it, we could have sold helluva lot of Rogaine that evening. 

 Anyhow, thanks for an awesome evening. You proved once again that Zillow hires only the best of the best.

@Mike, I'll send you Scott's stuff offline. 

@Sarah, a pleasure as always.  It's nice when I'm not the only one in the room drinking club soda.  :-)

Sara, it was great meeting you up in NYC.  And by the way, I was lucky to be next to you in that picture, and you sure were lucky to flanked by 3 of the best looking guys on Active Rain!

My thoughts exactly Brian!  Just didn't want to hurt any feelings by putting that in the post.
