On Sunday, I showed many homes through-out Danbury, CT with 2 wonderful clients.

My Life as a Realtor – Day 178

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 178:

Looks as though the market is beginning to pick up now after the holidays.  I have a few scheduled appointments with my listings and have noticed more activity in viewings on Listing Book in New York and especially with my listings in Connecticut.  This makes me smile – along with today being Friday!!

Did a few errands – then worked from home.  My poor laptop never gets a break.  While at home, I took a few pics of our pets playing around at home

Moe hiding at the top of the stairs leading to Melissa’s room. As I walked by, he tried swiping at my head.  For some reason Remi is afraid to climb up…

So he hangs out and waits for Moe to come down so he can chase him around the entire house…

Tisha preferred to hang out with me while I made my bed.  She wants nothing to do with Remi and Moe’s cat and dog game.

My Life as a Realtor – Day 78

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 78:

Today is Realtor Open House Day.  Carolyn was so kind to set up all the homes we were going to view – along with a Pre-Revolutionary 1732 Homestead that was not on the Open House list, but we were very anxious to pre-view for potential clients.  But first, before our fun afternoon, I went to the New Fairfield Post Office, then the New Fairfield Hardware store – Joe needed some caulking for repairs he’s doing to our front doors.

My Life as a Realtor – Day 61

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 61:

Worked… cleaned… and rearranged our kitchen now that Joe is finished with painting the cabinets and walls – looks so clean, bright and refreshing!  It’s not totally completed, but will be soon… I hope!

I have a new client that I will be taking out tomorrow – a New York Police Officer and first time home buyer – so I made all the necessary calls and appointments.

Then, Jonathan and I were off to New Milford, CT for his away soccer game

Jonathan and his team won – he scored the last goal – Yeah!  So far, they’ve won their first 2 games and a treat was well deserved – Mc Donald’s – his favorite!

HPIM2620                                                                Mc D’s in New Milford, CT

Since I was just a few miles away, we stopped at Costco in Brookfield, CT for some bulk shopping.

HPIM2622

Grilled Chicken for dinner – taking advantage of being able to barbecue before the cold sets in.  Then, back to work until very, very late…
