Day 241:

Friday – Show day for Amanda at the New Fairfield High School!


For me, it was work – work – work!  Much to do to get ready for another busy weekend!

Tonight was also Bunco night for me – it was at my sister’s house, so Ma came along to play and won $10!  She had a blast and didn’t complain she was tired once!  I’m so proud of her 😉

My Life as a Realtor – Day 185

Day 185:

Yahoo!  It’s Friday!!

Started the day with a morning appointment in Danbury CT – a townhouse in the Lakewood complex – a great unit with lots of room right on the Danbury/New Fairfield border.  There are no interior photos of this unit, so I will so my best to give you a tourpicture a walk-up unit – eliminating anyone above you possibly making noise – walk into a spacious Living Room with Fireplace, Balcony and Vaulted Ceilings – Lead into the Kitchen with Breakfast Bar, pantry and Dinning Room with views of the woods – also, one of the 3 bedrooms in on this level – which has been converted into a study with shelving on all four walls – lastly, 1/2 a bath.  Moving on up to the 2nd floor to 2 Bedrooms and a Full Bath.  This unit also includes a garage!

From the Lakewood complex, my client and I headed to view 4 more townhouses in the Shepherd Hill complex – which is a hop and a skip from I-84.  I always enjoy viewing identical models – but all so different with each owners choices in flooring, paint, furniture,…

Afterwards, I had a quick lunch at home and went to the office until my afternoon appointment – a home in Patterson, NY.   After my client left, I went to pre-view a neighborhood in Quail Ridge – also in Patterson

On my way home, I added more listing sheets to the brochure box outside, in front of one of my listings

Before dinner, I decided to try something out.  I had read that to take a great exterior photo of a home, wait 1/2 an hour after sunset,  turn on all the lights of the windows that will be photographed – and snap a picture

Well, I’m going to try this again.  This time I have to turn on the lights in 4 other areas of the house.

After dinner, it was Bunco in New Fairfield!

 Can’t believe that Fall is here!


Before Bunco, Amanda and I took off to Academy Marble & Granite in Bethel, CT to view some granite for our kitchen’s island.

Again, to save on cost, I called a few different place in and around Danbury, to see who would be more negotiable.  Our next stop was to American Flag Granite & Stone in Danbury, CT.

We also stopped at Car City in Danbury to view some cars for Joe.  Then hometo eat dinner – David made pork loin, mashed potatoes and grilled vegetables – Mmmmm!
