My Life as a Realtor – Day 176

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 176:

It’s Wednesday – Court day for my oldest – Melissa – in Bridgeport, CT

Melissa had a car accident during a nor’easter – going down a hill, she skidded and her tire came off – !!! – and ended up under her car.  No damage to anything – or anyone Thank God.  She was very shaken up – and to add to her nerves, a police officer gave her a ticket!  He said no matter how slow she was going – it wasn’t slow enough.

We left home at 7:45 for 9am court time – we waited on a very long line until it was time to see a court rep.  We chatted with another mother and daughter and found out that her daughter had been cut off and ended up hitting a guard rail.  A good samaritan called the police – an officer arrived and also gave her a ticket!!  What the heck!  When it was finally Melissa’s turn to be seen, she was told to come back in a months time with proof that she had insurance on the date of the accident!  That was also the reason the mother and daughter were there, she too had been told to came back to show proof of insurance – very frustrating!

We took our time driving home – I made a few phone calls – we stopped at Dunkin Donuts – I had Melissa text a few people since I was driving – and then we had lunch.  Afterwards, I met clients at a home in New Fairfield, CT .  Here I am on my way to the home…

 About 10 minutes after arriving home, the Sears repair man arrived to fix my washer – Yeah!  It took him about 10 minutes – unbelievable!

My Life as a Realtor – Day 30

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 30:

Morning appointment – a CMA(Comparative Marketing Analysis) in Brewster.  A lovely couple with a beautiful house looking to put it on the market – I can’t wait to share this with you!

Then – off to the office – just for a bit until it was time to show a home in New Fairfield – 3rd showing.


By now I was starving, so I treated myself to an iced coffee and an old fashioned donut at Dunkin Donuts in New Fairfield


Then it was time to shop for hubby hub – he’s leaving for Portugal… tomorrow!

So, I ran to Marshalls in Danbury …


and then to Sears at the Danbury Fair Mall.


I was able to buy all that was needed in both stores.  Went home, made dinner – then back out to take photos of a foreclosure and to show a condo in Danbury.
