Real Estate in New York & Connecticut – Won't you be my neighbor?

My Life as a Realtor – Day 49

Kids back to school after a long weekend…  Boo-Hoo, no more wearing white!   As I am writing this, Joe is in flight – somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean, coming back from Portugal after 2-1/2 weeks.  He’s due to arrive in Newark Airport in New Jersey at around 1:30 this afternoon.  My dilemma will be picking him up from his sister’s house (Joe, his sister Isabel, brother-in-law Frank and youngest nephew, Daniel – are flying in together and our oldest nephew, Michael will be picking them up – Whew, I know!)  OK, so all I have to do is be in Mt. Vernon, NY – which the distance from my home in New Fairfield, CT to there is about 50 minutes – which means I have to leave Connecticut at around 3:30.  No problem, except… I also have an appointment in Southbury, CT – about 35 minutes in the opposite direction – and I have to make a special “Welcome Back” dinner.  OK, time to have faith that all will work out – I get frustrated thinking that I can’t do it all – that I’ll have family and clients disappointed in me.

It’s a good thing I’m busy this morning with work and my household chores – this will help speed the day up.  Starting this morning off – after my youngest 3 were all in school by 7:30 am – I read an article on AOL about a mother, Molly Chen, who was inspired to start a business while feeding her son and watching Oprah.  Her business idea was clip on bibs – instead of tieing them around a babies neck, they snap on to a matching onesie – I thought of how many bibs I went through with my 5 children’s feedings and drooling.  Check out her bibs for babies – Bibs and Match, LLC ~ CLICK ~

Got to workcleaningstarted dinner – and off I was to my appointment – David was picking up hubby hub – Hot Diggity Dog – problem solved!  Melissa watched dinner in the oven while I showed a very nice home and was able to submit an offer – although, after speaking with the listing agent, I found out that there is a full asking price offer on the table – just came in this afternoon – but, I still have hope!  I also spoke with 2 other agents  – one giving me a referral for commercial property – the other to do him a favor and show a listing to clientsof his since he will be out-of-town – also spoke with a client who increased her offer on a multi-family home and gave some information and advice to another client who’s also interested in also submitting an offer.  Busy day – and I Love Busy Days!
