Selling and buying a house is a turbulent ride right now. And just like everything in the world during a global pandemic, the real estate market is awash with unprecedented behaviors, tactics and crazy tales. 

In this episode – our 10th! – Dandelions co-host Julie Davidson, who is also a licensed real estate agent, dishes with fellow realtor, Julie Olson. Together they talk about the joys and peculiarities of the current market, including unbelievable bids over asking prices and "love letters" from hopeful buyers. Olson also chats about her obsession with Playmobil, penchant for dinosaurs and more.

If you have bought a house, sold a house or thinking about doing either in the future, this p-cast is for you:

Molly Snyder grew up on Milwaukee's East Side and today, she lives in the Walker's Point neighborhood with her partner and two sons.

As a full time senior writer, editorial manager and self-described experience junkie, Molly has written thousands of articles about Milwaukee (and a few about New Orleans, Detroit, Indianapolis, Boston and various vacation spots in Wisconsin) that range in subject from where to get the best cup of coffee to an in-depth profile on the survivors of the iconic Norman apartment building that burned down in the '90s.

She also once got a colonic just to report on it, but that's enough on that. 

Always told she had a "radio voice," Molly found herself as a regular contributor on FM102, 97WMYX and 1130WISN with her childhood radio favorite, Gene Mueller.

Molly's poetry, essays and articles appeared in many publications including USA Today, The Writer, The Sun Magazine and more. She has a collection of poetry, "Topless," and is slowly writing a memoir.

In 2009, Molly won a Milwaukee Press Club Award. She served as the Narrator / writer-in-residence at the Pfister Hotel from 2013-2014. She is also a story slam-winning storyteller who has performed with The Moth, Ex Fabula and Risk!

When she's not writing, interviewing or mom-ing, Molly teaches tarot card classes, gardens, sits in bars drinking Miller products and dreams of being in a punk band again.
