My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 238:

Lot’s of work to do again today  and I’m happy to report that the rain and clouds are gone and it is an absolute gorgeous day!!  Spring isn’t until Saturday, although it has arrived today – Yeah! 

Here is a pic of a beautiful – and thawed – Ball Pond

As I made my way to the office, I realized quickly that I was over dressed.  This happens every Spring –  I’m afraid of being cold, so I still wear turtle necks and coats and sweat my buns off!

After going to the office, I stopped at A&P in Brewster – yes, FOOD SHOPPING AGAIN!

When I arrived home, my mom and David had made a wonderful dinner – our very 1st barbecue of the season – and – we even ate outside…

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 237:

It’s Monday – a day to catch up on work since I was out all weekend showing homes – how wonderful!

Even though I made a quick trip to the A&P in Brewster yesterday in-between appointments, I had to go grocery shopping again today – gosh, if I only had the past 10 years of what I’ve spent on food – I’d be rich! 

So, a quick trip to Shaws – and to buy pellets – gas up David’s car – back home and back to work until it was time to deliver Amanda’s dinner at school while she continues with theatre practice for the big show this coming weekend at New Fairfield High School!

Rain, rain go away…

A very rainy Saturday as I met with new clients in Brewster NY.  We viewed a total of 5 homes and I was soaked as I made my way to the office to wait for appointment #2 – which happen to be with a very good friend of mine.  We viewed 3 homes and had a ball – wet and all!

My Life as a Realtor – Day 199

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 199:

Yeah! Friday!!  Although, my favorite day started out with having to drop off Amanda at school at 6am – way too early and dark for me!

By 7:45, Melissa and I headed into the Bronx so she could have her 4 wisdom teeth extracted – poor Melissa!  I must say, the dentist and her staff took very good care of her and it only took us an hour and 5 minutes to get from New Fairfield, CT to the Bronx – and I was driving!

A quick stop at Rite Aid in Brewster to pick up her meds – antibiotics and pain killers.  Then home to get her settled and to work a bit before heading back out.  Jonathan had 10 friends sleep over so a trip to Shaws for snacks – or I should say, junk food!

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 190:

Wednesday!  Stopped by the office, then a trip to the bank and A&P in Brewster, NY.  I couldn’t believe how many seagulls there was in the parking lot…

 Then Ma and I grabbed some lunch and it was back home to get some work done before my meeting with Network for Free.  This evening, we had a Speed Networking event in Danbury, CT.  We grouped into two’s – had a few minutes to exchange business cards and discuss what we did.  I met a fellow Realtor, some Tech and Marketing people, an Antique Restorations person and many more!  During this time, we were taken aside and given a few minutes to shoot a video with Mike Evans  – Digital Video Productionsand discuss what we do and offer to the public. I can’t wait to see mine to see if what I asked for was done – take 10 pounds and 10 years off my appearance – LOL!

               Leader of our group – Scott Blanchard – Loan Officer – Mortgage Force Newtown, CT 

The event was held at PES – Plaza Executive Suites and what a wonderful evening it was!

Day 182:

CLOSING DAY!  My clients have a big day today – they are closing on their first home in Brewster, NY

But first, I have a lovely Doctors appointment that I must attend also in Brewster.

Here is my view of the ceiling while I was waiting for the Doc to come in…

Then – my fear and worry of being at the doctors office changed to full excitment for my wonderful – and I really mean wonderful – clients.  Here I am at the closing in Mr. Hogan’s office in Brewster…

Day 177:

Today I was able to get some work accomplished before heading out.  Our first stop was A&P in Brewster, NY

                                                           My mom pushing the cart

Then a quick stop at Brewster Liquors for some Portuguese wine

                                    Terra dos Lobo – Red Wine (Translation – Land of the Wolves)

We enjoyed some Chinese Food for lunch – then went to one of our favorite stores – HomeGoods – and a quick stop at Walmart in Danbury, CT.

                                                                                                HomeGoods

A nice day, spent with my mom – then it was back home and back to work.

My Life as a Realtor – Day 175

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 175:

At the top of our list of things to do today is – LAUNDRY!  My mother and I took 8 loads to Laundry Plus in Brewster, NY – about 15 minutes from home

We put everything to wash and took off to A&P for some grocery shopping – a few phone calls and e-mails came in during our adventure at the laundry mat

After shopping, we went back to the laundry mat – threw everything into dryers and then went for a quick lunch – also in the same shopping center.  Came back – folded and left to get gas and a stop at the Brewster Post Office.

My Life as a Realtor – Day 174

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 174:

Monday – and I have a Doctors appointment today in Mt. Kisco with the Mt. Kisco Medical Group.  Usually, I’m seen in the Southeast office which is only about 20 minutes away, but it’s good to know that if someone needs to be seen right away, between both offices, you can get an appointment.

Before leaving, I had to drop off Sara at school and noticed the tree that was full of snow last week is bare now…

I have no idea why I noticed this and why I’m mentioning it – ??

After my doctor’s appointment, my mother and I stopped to do some laundry in Brewster, NY at Laundry Plus.  My washer is only 10 months old and it’s not working – Hmmm… maybe it has something to do with the fact that I wash 4 to 6 loads a day!  Well, we are a family of 7 and with my mom here visiting from Portugal for a few months – that makes 8 – so loads and loads of wash that I do a day is just inevitable.  Having no washer for a few days is just impossible, so I decided to try out a laundry mat

We washed one large load, just to try it out and decided to come back tomorrow with more after seeing that it is a clean, large, bright place with many washers – 4 different sizes – and dryers – as well as a television and sofas to sit and relax.

Day 172:

It’s a sunny – but cold – Saturday morning and I have an appointment in Brewster, NY.

My clients, which are first time home buyers, have a closing scheduled for next week and came over to the home to go over a few things with the current owners.  One item on their list was to go through the plantings around the property. We walked through the snow and I could only imagine how beautiful the landscaping will be in the Spring.  For today, we froze while tracking through the snow

It snowed today – bummer – just when almost all of it was melted!  Although, I must admit, the large-fluffy snowflakes were pretty…

During this time, I received e-mails regarding appointments on 2 of my listings and a call from a client who has finally sold his home in FloridaCongrats Norm and Carol!

Then, off to Danbury, CT for grocery shopping at ShopRiteWahoo… New Years is in the air!

Day 130:

It’s Sunday – I can not believe how quickly this long weekend has gone!

Meeting new potential clients today – showing them 1 house in Brewster, NY and then moving unto New Fairfield, CT for a few homes there.  Stopped at the office before heading out and was able to accomplish a few things…

Meeting new potential clients is always exciting.  These were a young couple with a small child and one on the way and interested in moving further north.  Currently, they have their home on the market and are looking into different areas of New York and Connecticut.

After our last showing – in New Fairfield, CT – we passed the town hall where the Lighting of the Tree ceremony was happening.  Christmas is in the air!

Finally – Closing for my clients is fully confirmed for tomorrow!  They are so relieved and I can’t wait to once again witness and know I was a part of the purchase of another First Time Home Buyer

Since I had David’s car during the morning – it was errands on the top of my list. Bank – and the Office in Brewster, NY – and back to New Fairfield, CT to the Liquor Store for Wine – and Shaw’s for some more groceries and pellets

For dinner, I made homemade Pizza and Soup – Yum!  I worked until a little after midnight – big day tomorrow, so a decent amount of sleep is necessary – I’ll get a whole 6 hours!  Ha!  Then I wonder why I have bags under my eyes…

Then home to make dinner – since it’s Jonathan’s Birthday, he got to choose – it was Meatballs and spaghetti.  Afterwards, we had Ice Cream Cake and wished Jonathan a wonderful year!

Wow! I can’t believe I made it to Day 100!  Writing about my (Yawn!) Life as a Realtor has been fun.  Showing how multi-tasking my Life and Real Estate and how much I enjoy making this work and how I look forward to our market rebounding!! 

Phone Pics 117                                                                Patterson, NY Town Hall

Well, today, Thursday, was a good day.  One of my clients, who is purchasing his first home in Patterson, NY, met with his mortgage broker and contracts are awaiting his signature.  Another couple/clients of mine are in the process of negotiating on a beautiful home in Brewster, NY. And, a lovely couple, also purchasing their first home in Southbury, CT, are anxiously waiting for a commitment from their bank.  I have my fingers crossed!  Also, my clients/sellers and I are going out on Saturday to view a few homes in anticipation that they receive an offer soon – therefore allowing them to purchase soon!  Other clients are staying in touch via e-mail – inquiring on listings and waiting to hear if the tax credit will be extended.  Well, it looks like it will!  And not only for First-Time Home Buyers – more info will be announced and I can’t wait!

Afterwards, picked up my Open House signs and flew to the office to pick up listing sheets and to update my electronic key for appointments tomorrow.

Then, met with a very sweet couple to view a home in Brewster, NY.

After my appointment – made a few phone calls while making my way to A & P  – picked up a few things for a wine & cheese night with my sister Lisa and brother-in-law Richie.  We decided to watch the Yankee game instead of a movie.  The Yankees won after 13 innings – a very exciting game!  Although, the pouring rain and frigid temperatures made me uncomfortable for the fans in the stands.  One other person that was at the game – working as security – was my client from this morning.  He was stationed behind 3rd base – Lucky him, except for the freezing part!
