My Life as a Realtor – Day 42

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 42:

Kids started school today – Yippee!  I was so excited for them, I couldn’t get to sleep last night – you’d think it was my first day back to school!

Phone calls – e-mails and texting through-out the day.  What’s great is I could do all of this anywhere – anytime!  Some of my clients are night owls – just like me – so getting a message from them at midnight, or later, doesn’t faze me a bit.  Other Realtors just don’t understand why I never turn my phone off – NEVER! I say – since it would drive me crazy wondering if I have a message – one that usually only takes a few minutes of my time and makes both me and my client happy.  So, turn OFF my phone – NEVER!!

My Life as a Realtor – Day 36

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 36:

Well, an easy day – work wasn’t very demanding today – only had about 20 phone calls – under 200 e-mails – wrote 2 Blog post – 1 Fax – and of course tending to the house, kids and pets filled in the rest of the day.

Drove Jonathan to Loews Movie Theatre in Danbury.  He watched Shorts and then went to a friends.

David had to go to West Conn – so much involved in registering Melissa and David for college – maybe by our fifth child, I’ll be a pro!

For dinnergrilled chicken – one of my favorite foods to eat.  Since school begins next week, Melissa and David have some friends over.  Thankfully, they are all watching a movie and not making much noise.  Tomorrow is a big day – since July 17th, my clients have been patiently waiting to close on their first home.  Tomorrow is finally their big day!

One very important question that every buyer should ask their Realtor is for a School Report.  Whether you have children or not, buying in an area with a good school system is also important for re-sale purposes.  Since you may want to sell your home in a few years to buyers that are interested in the school’s.
