My Life as a Realtor – Day 200

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 200!

Met with my client in Danbury, CT to show a few condo rentals.  Our first stop was in New Milford where we viewed 3 units.  We took the newly added exit 13 off Super 7 – which cut our time substantially – to get to New Milford …

            Viewed 2 industrial styled rental units in this renovated Flour, Grain & Feed building

We ended with viewing a condo in Danbury and then I was off on errands.  First, a quick stop at A&P – and then the Car Wash on Padanaram Road…

 

 

Then it was back home to set up my appointments for tomorrows showings.

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!

My Life as a Realtor – Day 24

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 24:

After a good night sleep – all 5 1/2 hours!  I started the day with calls from agents and clients – fed the critters, took care of some house cleaning and started some work on the computer until – no internet connection!  Oh, no – no – no…  that is not good.  My lap top, cell phone and camera are my life, my life as a Realtor.  So, after attempting to repair the service myself, and saying a few nice-so-nice words, I called Charter Cable and within minutes, service was on and I got back to work…  for only 20 minutes!

Charter Cable

David had to be at Putnam Hospital for post-op work for his surgery on Monday.

While we were there, we had a few laughs while filling our necessary paperworkHistory of Diabetes? NO   On Daily Medication? NO    Are You Currently Pregnant?  HUGH??  Well, heck NO!

HPIM2282                                      David reading the Patient Information Packet

Dropped David off at home, picked up my client to view 2 homes in New Milford and Danbury.  2nd appointment was canceled – I was doing another agent a favor. 

Was very happy to see my new listing in New Fairfield come on the market.  While I was out with the homeowner searching for a new home, her listing was e-mailed to me, which I viewed on my phone.

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 15:

One evening appointment today – in New Milford – near Candlewood Lake.  We were followed around by 2 kitties that seem to have the run of the house.  Funny that my daughter Sara, sketched this picture of a kitty just this morning –

My “To Do” list is getting long…er – need to get motivated and start doing things – I do love crossing off  things I’ve done.  It’s great seeing the list get smaller and I enjoy the sense of accomplishment.  It also motivates the kids to help, they too enjoy crossing off the list.  Here’s just a few items for today that I added to my everyday chores

  1. Clean shelf and nic-nacs to make into our new cookbook shelf ~ CHECK
  2. Go through mail – get rid of junk mail – organize bills that will be paid this week ~ CHECK
  3. Clean out my pocketbook ~ CHECK
  4. Wash all fruit trays and rearrange on breakfast bar ~ CHECK

Before my appointment, I went to the officeCentury 21 VJF Realty – had an Open House today in Brewster, NY –  A home with 3.75 acres and zoned for 2 horses ~ CLICK ~  Eva and I also viewed another home in Brewster  –  a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home that’s aggressively priced ~ CLICK ~

After Open Houses, I received a call – a new client looking for a rental – we’ll be going out tomorrow since she has only 2 months left on her current rental.

Stopped at the bank – then off to A & P in Brewster, NY – flew home to drop off the groceries – picked up my clients to view the home in New Milfordhome again to make dinnerchicken cutlets, baked ziti and salad– Sara and Amanda helped alot with dinner, dishes and laundry.  Maybe, just maybe, I’ll be in bed by 2 am… it’s now almost 1:55am and I have just 1 more thing on my list!

RISING HEAT CONTINUES IN CT & NY

The HEAT continues to rise in Connecticut and New York.  Once again, many schools through out have early dismissal. 

In New Fairfield, CT, we received an “Alert Now” message saying that the Senior Rec Center would be open all day for anyone needing shelter from this severe heat and humidity – and that CANDLEWOOD LAKE would be open – a GREAT place to cool off!

                                                                     

CANDLEWOOD LAKE is a man made lake with over 60 miles of shoreline.  In 1928, Connecticut Light & Power began the process of making Connecticut’s largest lake with water from the HOUSATONIC RIVER.

In the 1940’s, summer cottages were being built around the 4 towns and city that surround the lake –  BETHEL,   BROOKFIELD,   NEW FAIRFIELD,   NEW MILFORD   AND   SHERMAN – along with the  CITY OF DANBURY. 

Now, most of the homes on and near the lake, are used all year round.  They also have Lake Associations with clubhouses, beaches and private docks.

Candlewood Lake has been a favorite for residents and visitors to boat, fish, water-ski and jet-ski – or to just sit back, relax and enjoy the view!

                                                                                                                           

WON’T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR?

Thanks for GOOGLE IMAGERY
