My Life as a Realtor – Day 256

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 256:

Saturday….  my first appointment was over in Heritage Hills in Somers NY

 

My 2nd appointment was showing a few homes in Katonah and North Salem NY.

Our 1st home had a striking red door and interesting door knocker…

My final, evening appointment was back with my client from yesterday to the new Rivington complex in Danbury CT

 

My client brought her husband along and they were so sweet together. 

Then, it was back to mommy mode – food shopping and dinner was on my mind.  So, I stopped at Shaw’s at 7:30 at night to find almost nothing!  I had lot’s to pick from at home, but was hoping to pick something up that was quick to make.  Unfortunately, Shaw’s is closing 😦  and Stop & Shop in coming to New Fairfield!   In the end, I made a very difficult decision and bought Chinese Food for dinner… he – he!

Afterwards, we took a quick peek in Annie Sez

My Life as a Realtor – Day 185

My Life as a Realtor ~

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!

                                                 ~~~~ CLICK Here to View Listing ~~~~

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

                                              ~~~~  CLICK Here to View Listing Sheet ~~~~

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!
