Day 170:

Office Meeting today – the first for 2010 – at Century 21 VJF Realty.  It was nice seeing everyone and enjoyed some breakfast and catching up…

I ended up saving my bagel with cream cheese for lunch

After our meeting, I stayed and did some work – then back home – Faith drove once again – and I am the luckiest gal since I have my mom – a minnie me – at home – cleaning, cooking and caring for the kids and pets.  As I said in yesterday’s post… “It’s a Wonderful Life”

Day 169:

CLOSING DAY for my client!! 

The closing was held in Carmel, NY at Attorney William Shillings office.  Here are a few pics I took as I drove in Carmel

A beautiful sunny day

Just a few minutes away from the attorney’ s office – I can see “The Retreat” on the horizon

Then past Lake Gleneida

and the Historic Putnam Court House

After the closing, my client was extremely excited and it was also exciting for me to be a part of this.  As we said our goodbyes, I noticed a plaque on the wall…

“It’s a Wonderful Life” – One of my favorite movies and sayings!

My Life as a Realtor – Day 168

Day 168:

It is only the beginning of winter and I am already wishing for Spring to come quickly!

Although, there are some benefits to the winter season…. snow!  Today, I had a final walk-thru with my client.  Making sure all was well with the home before taking over ownership.  He is a first time home buyer, purchasing on his own and what a great house he is purchasing with loads of potential.  During the walk-thru, which was in the evening, we noticed some foot – or more like paw prints in the snow.  There were 3 different types and we tried to figure out if one belonged to a cat, maybe another to a deer and a racoon??

My client is a NYC PO – I am sure he will soon figure it out!
