My Life as a Realtor – Day 12

Day 12:

 Pancakes 3                                                             

It’s Sunday… pancake Sunday.  No appointmentstoday, things seem to be slowing down.  Notoriously, Real Estate does get a bit slower during the month of August.  I keep busy though – searching both MLS’s in NY & CT, sending any potential listings to clients that are interested in purchasing a home.  I also search for ideas for my blogs on WordPress, Active Rain, Trulia andZillow.  Then there’s networking on Twitter and Facebook, adding photos to Flickr and keeping on top of my leads in my Lead Router and Listing Book – 2 new clients joined for their free accounts on Listing Book and they seem to like it.  So, really there is never a slow day – there is always much to do.

Today, it rained for most of the day.  I don’t recall ever having such a wet summer.  The benefit is not having to water my flowers and our reservoirs are full and flowing.  Negatives is the water that seeped into the basementtoday and that I have steak and hot dogs to barbecue for dinner.  I guess we’ll use our beach umbrella while grilling and Joe will have to find where the water in the basement is getting in from.  Thank goodness he is a “jack of all trades” and enjoys working on the house.  Just last week, he finished refacing around our front doors.  There had been clapboard siding and water had been getting into the basement from the corners of our front steps… not anymore.  Now it came in from the back steps!

Was in contact with a few clients today making 3 appointments for next week.  Sent an e-news letter to all my customers/clients in my Lead Router. After dinner, Melissa made some yummy mini margarita pizza’s.  It was a great lazy Sunday.

My Life as a Realtor – Day 5

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 5:

It’s Sunday and no appointments, not something I’m very used to since Sundays can be busy for me.  Although, I still have lots of work to do – searching listings – sending e-mails – texting clients – and of course… posting on my Blog.

My son David suggested that we get pizza for lunch – we don’t order out much and since I feel like I just left the kitchen after making and cleaning up from our Pancake Sunday,  I caved in.  Bruno’s Pizza in New Fairfield – is delicious!

It’s almost midnight – my work is done early today, including updating all my leads in our Lead Router – Yahoo!
