mark and linda that is. I was just wondering if anyone had heard the rumor that they're broke. I heard that the whole reason he sold the bowling alley was so they'd have money. I also heard that he used to own some apts down by the baptist church but sold them for the same reason. I know you can't believe everything but I was wondering if there's any truth to any of that?

YOu ever hear of Profit? This is one of the bad things about small towns with small minded people such as yourself commenting on jealousy. They have very successful businesses, and pay the most taxes of any one company in monroe county, be glad theyre here helping you have good quality of life.Think before you type.

I almost laughed out loud on this one...... if I were a betting person I would connect the dots between the person responsible for this post and and certain person in town that has been taking a beating on Topix because of her comments on taxes and the bad P.R. she brings on herself. Trying to shift the focus is too funny!! Also, I have sold property to make money - guess I must be broke too!!!! Get a life and don't start lame posts - just don't give any more quotes to St. Louis Magazines.

Just curious,
You must have selective hearing! Linda's apparently kicking ass in her occupation. Can only imagine how much she's making. It sure would be hard to be broke!! Guess that's just wishful thinking on your part. Misery loves company.

ya, the quote in the magazine sounded like she dislikes the area. Not professional and Linda is always so nice to people. You wouldnt know that unless you actually sit down and talk to her one on one. Why is Tammy Jealous?

I heard the whole Frierdich Dynasty is broke and/or bankrupt. In this economy why the big surprise?

I'm sure if the frierdich were that broke they'd be much more worried about selling off their bigger holding like the Edelweiss apartments or the storage business or the million dollar condo in Florida or the... Point is, selling off a cheap apartment building and a bar that they stopped enjoying does not a pauper make. Sounds like whoever started this post is aiming to run the nasty rumor mill. Good thing you got so much support, there, buck-o!
hmmm

last time i heard the construction company was struggling like every other one in the USA, but they are selling homes and hopefully they will pull through. it's nice to see caring people note this fact on topix, keep up the good work and lets all hope they survive. I'm also glad Mark and Linda are working though thier money problems as well, i had no idea these issues exsisted until i came on topix! stupid me, i thought they had plenty of money.
hmmm

you have the "stupid me" part right. Its a small town, you cant go by rumors. Im sure people who are jealous want Mark and Linda to fall, but theyre opposite of that. She's a great agent and has gotten the best selling award for the past 3 years, and rental units survive in tight economy. um,i wouldnt call that exactly struggling..........Be happy for them , dont be jealous its not polite. They also look awesome, they dont even age?!

They dont age because they can afford surgery. Grant and Mark also tan like crazy so they look like lizards. I have talked to Linda a few times. She seems ok. Her advertising is what does it for her.
hmmm

Dont even compare Mark and Grant in any way shape or form, not even close. When you spend a few days a month in Florida its easy to be tan. Being able to afford surgery is great, however having surgery is not there case. Try working out as much as they do or spend 3 or 4 days a week playing raquetball and you probably wont need surgery.

sorry but the condo is not worth a million anymore, my parents live in Ft. Myers and the values have dropped 50% or more in the last few years. still, i wish i could afford to go once a month to tan!
wondering

Columbia, IL

#19 Apr 13, 2010
how do you know what it is worth if you dont know what it cost example : 2 MILLION @50% = 1 MILLION 3 MILLION @50% = 1.5 MILLION Ft.Myers is not an island and maybe your parents place is not directly on the gulf. Ive heard beachfront property has not taken that kind of hit.
