The agents who passed the sniff test

March 27, 2009 | 10:26 am

Candy Spelling's selection of agents to list her $150-million Holmby Hills estate is also mentioned in the Associated Press story:

Spelling_2 Spelling told the Associated Press that she let her dog Madison, a soft-coated Wheaten terrier, help pick out the best real estate agent for the task. She had her security bring the dog into the room every time she met one of the candidate agents and watched how the dog reacted. If Madison didn't like them, Spelling crossed them off the list.

So who passed the sniff test? From the Wall St. Journal:

Sally Forster Jones of Coldwell Banker Previews has the listing together with Jeffrey Hyland and Rick Hilton, both of Hilton & Hyland/Christie's Great Estates.

Hopefully the commissions will make up for knowing they were selected by a terrier.
