Editor’s note: The #madREskillz finalist who receives the most votes in the poll below will be featured in an Inman News story. Click here to learn how to participate in Inman News’ weekly #madREskillz competition. Voting closes 10 a.m. Eastern time Monday, Feb. 10.

1. Jake Palmer, a real estate agent at Re/Max Professionals Saint John located in Saint John, Canada, produced a video profile on a $2,500 listing that he calls an “open-concept living-kitchen-dining room area” with “ready access to seafood on a daily basis.”

Unamused by his ironic portrayal of the for-sale fishing shack, his multiple listing service removed the listing, arguing that it doesn’t count as a “dwelling.”

“How’s a fella supposed to make a living?” retorts Palmer, who has a history of drawing attention to homes using offbeat tactics.

2. The Jensen Team, which specializes in homes in the northwest suburbs of Minneapolis, produced a marketing video that theatrically hails the approach of the spring buying season with a mashup of footage of landscapes, inclement weather and even Colonial-era soldiers all set to a comically dramatic score.
