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!

Day 134:

Another nice day – not as warm as yesterday, but still nice out.  Although, that will all change since snow is in the forecast for Saturday!  Actually, this will be Remi’s first snow fall – I wonder what he’ll do?

Today, I took this photo of him hanging out with Tisha in the den

and then I noticed what he was chewing on…

his collar!

My Life as a Realtor – Day 114

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 114:

Saturday – a take-it-easy kind of day – and I am so thankful.

I dropped off my commission check and then came back home to clean – cook and I wrote 6 Blog posts! 

Fellow agent and good friend of mine, sent me a joke that I’d like to share with you…


I live in a semi rural area. We recently had a new neighbor call the local township administrative office to request the removal of the DEER CROSSING sign on our road. The reason: ‘Too many deer are being hit by cars out here!  I don’t think this is a good place for  them to be crossing anymore.’
From Kingman , KS . 
 

Hope that made you smile 😉

Had a showing today on one of my listings – Hope it went well and I also hope the agent gets back to me with feedback – better yet, an offer!

My Life as a Realtor – Day 88

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 88:

Saturday – a very busy Saturday!  Met with a client and his family, in Patterson, NY to view a home that he is interested in purchasing.  Then flew home to get my things together for a Public Open House on my listing in Brookfield, CT  ~  CLICK here to view listing sheet.

HPIM2067

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!

Picture 357                                                         Lake Carmel – a picture I took last Fall

Did some work – errands – and home to make dinner and tend to the kids – pets and house – and,  very, very grateful that Jonathan’s soccer practice was canceled!  That’s one less thing on my “To Do” list.

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 76:

I can’t believe I have to go back to Home Depot… again… since the moulding that Joe purchased yesterday was, well – I’ll be nice… or maybe I won’t – it was just darn ugly!!!

Stopped by my clients home first to have him sign a price reduction2A Hudson Drive ~ New Fairfield, CT

HPIM2535                                                                      Water View of Ball Pond

Then off to the office ~ Century 21 VJF Realty ~ Brewster, NY…

Home to pick up Jonathan and drop him off for soccer practice…

SSPX0687

All while talking, texting and e-mailing clientsI love my phone, I love my phone, I love my phone…  To be able to assist all of my clients from anywhere and everywhere is awesome!  How did we ever manage without cell phones

Oh, I remember when I was pregnant with Amanda – who is now 17.   Two weeks before my due date,  my husband was at a soccer game about an hour away – and of course, I go into labor and Joe has no cell phone!  In the end, it all work out – my sister, Lisa, who was also expecting ~ her son Derek ~ came and stayed with Melissa – who was 3 1/2 – and David – who was 1 1/2.  My brother-in-law, Richie,  drove me to the hospital – where all the nurses mistook him for my husband and kept wanting to examine me with him in the room!  Miraculously, my contractions seemed to slow down – I think Amanda decided to wait for her daddy before making her dramatic entrance – so, I was told to go take a walk around the hospital halls.  Poor Richie came with me – wobble, wobble – down the hall I went – and to my surprise, when I reached the end of one of the hallways where the elevators were – the doors opened and there was my Joe – soak and wet due to a terrible rain storm during the game – but he was there and Amanda was born – healthy, happy and  beautiful!
