My Life as a Realtor – Day 20

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 20:

Today, my day started with a painter coming to our house.  He looked over and measured each room since we still have smoke damage.  Then, I was on my way to my 1st appointment – in Danbury near the Danbury Fair Mall.  From there I went to Enterprise Car Rental also in Danbury – had to rent a car for hubby-hub since his car is still in the shop – New Fairfield Auto Body – waiting for our Allstate Insurance adjuster to view.

Flew home to grab a bite to eat, made phone calls to 20 listing agents inquiring on  rentals for 3 college students.  Unfortunately, not many homeowners want to rent to college students… and I can understand.  We have a party going on right now with a few college kids – oh my!

At around 4:30, I had another appointment – 2 homes in New Fairfield.  For the first home, we walked in – and 3 minutes later – we walked out.  There was so much clutter and mess – making it very difficult for any buyer to see a home’s potential.   The second home was very well kept and a pleasure to view.

Next, I was off to pick up Jonathan at a friends house and to pick up Joe at Harley Davidson in Danbury.  He had to drop his motorcyle off to get a new back tire.

For dinner, I ordered from Bruno’s Pizza in New Fairfield – awesome pizza – and with this heat and all the running around I did, it was great to take advange of ordering out – something we don’t do very often.
