On Twitter, real estate pros celebrate, despair over election results

In the half-day since President Barack Obama clinched his reelection bid, The Real Deal took a look at what the real estate industry was thinking – via Twitter – as the hard-fought and sometimes exasperating presidential race came to an end. As always, the never-speechless Donald Trump delivered some of the evening’s liveliest tweets, while others, such as Miller Samuel’s Jonathan Miller and Nestseekers International’s Katriel Calderon, had  more of a sense of humor. Rubicon Property CEO Jason Haber celebrated, while Halstead Property agent Greg Kochanov became nauseated – but that’s politics.

I had the high honor of pulling the rip chord on our balloon drop tonight at our #UWS election watch party. That was awesome!

 

Donald J. Trump, real estate developer

@realDonaldTrump

House of Representatives shouldn’t give anything to Obama unless he terminates Obamacare.

The electoral college is a disaster for a democracy.

Our nation is a once great nation divided!

Our country is now in serious and unprecedented trouble…like never before.

This election is a total sham and a travesty. We are not a democracy!

Lets fight like hell and stop this great and disgusting injustice! The world is laughing at us.

 

Jonathan Miller, president of Miller Samuel

Thought Elizabeth Warren of Mass had large mole on forehead but closer look – was piece of dried cereal on TV. Don’t ask. #election2012

Phew. Earlier bedtime than expected. And before FL. Hope I don’t wake up to a different result. Again.

 

Michael Joe Armijo, president of Verona Capital Management

@MichaelJArmijo

Go! @BarackObama! Now END ‘fiscal cliff’ & remove the phrase from our vocabulary. Appoint Bill Clinton to a’reduce the deficit’ task force.

Early to draw poli-lessons, but if you’re a GOP candidate &have a theory on rape & abortion, maybe keep it to yourself?”

The line at My Polling Place is so long. How long is it? It is so long, I thought they were selling gasoline.

[email protected]: I wonder if Romney wouldn’t mind creating those 12 million jobs anyway, like as a contractor or something.

 

Charles Shapiro, CoStar Group sales director

@CharlesShapiro

I failed. Step-son called at 10:10 pm and said, “well, Obama, won.” Damn, I really wanted to hold out until morning

OK. No more media, tonight. No election results until 6 am MST, tomorrow. I’m already feeling cranky

@thedailybeast After Obama was reelected I had to turn to Fox News to watch them freak out and boy was it entertaining lol
