On Twitter, real estate pros discuss DOMA, Prop 8 rulings

New York /
Jun.June 26, 2013 04:30 PM

The U.S. Supreme Court delivered historic decisions this morning on marriage equality, ruling that the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional and effectively tossing California’s Proposition 8 ban on same-sex marriage. Real estate insiders took to Twitter — and, uh, frosting — to broadcast their thoughts on the rulings.
