No. 2496 - Justin Fichelson: “What’s on your mantelpiece?”

The Steeple Times asks realtor and star of ‘Million Dollar Listing San Francisco’ Justin Fichelson: “What’s on your mantelpiece?”

 

The Steeple Times shares “wit and wisdom”. What’s your guiding force?

Carpe Diem.

 

“Don’t get even, get medieval” is, in our humble opinion, a great motto. What’s yours?

Success is the best revenge.

 

Kerry Katona was considered unacceptable in 2007. Who or what is unacceptable in 2015?

Men wearing flip-flop shoes around town when not at the beach.

 

Tony Blair misses being Prime Minister. What do you miss most in your life?

More time in the day.

 

What might you swap all your wealth for?

Immortality.

 

Donald Trump was once a case of: “If you owe the bank a thousand, they close you down; but if you owe the bank a billion, you own the bank”. What’s your view on the banking crisis?

Greed, if left completely unfettered, will run amok.

 

What phrase or word do you most loathe?

No.

 

In the UK, some people consider charity to “begin at home”. What’s your view and what causes do you personally support?

‘Do what you can, with what you have, where you are’ – Theodore Roosevelt.

 

I personally am on the board of the Exploratorium Lab, which raises millions of dollars for the Exploratorium, one of the world’s leading interactive science museums. I am also a supporter of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.

 

The judge in Law Abiding Citizen states: “I can pretty much do whatever I want” before being blown up whilst answering her mobile phone. What’s your view on the appropriate use of such devices?

Never have a mobile phone present at a dining table and never look at the phone while meeting and or talking with someone unless you have excused yourself.

Anytime after noon.

 

A Negroni, a martini or a cup of tea?

A Negroni.

 

Whose parties do you enjoy the most and why?

Any party thrown by the Getty family in San Francisco because they are always unique and done to perfection. I also enjoy house parties thrown by my friends in London, among them those of the artist William Roper-Curzon. Brits just know how to have a smart time.

My grandmother and Gavin Newsom.

What’s currently sitting on your mantelpiece?

My small collection of vintage coronation cups going back to King George, a book on artist Thomas Hart Benton and a gazelle head right above it.
