My Life as a Realtor – Day 122

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 122:

Sunday – and Jonathan had his last soccer game – which ended in a tie – and I was so thankful it was a HOME GAME –  at the New Fairfield High School Rebel Turf Field.  And yes, once again – I sat in my car… actually it’s our rental from Enterprise

… and watched the game – keeping myself warm and multi-tasking at the same time.  I worked a bit, making calls, sending e-mails and I looked over my “To-Do” list for Thanksgiving Day.

My Life as a Realtor – Day 107

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 107:

It’s Thursday – Morning Office Meeting today to go over Listing Book – a great way for buyers to search like an agent!  Information on each listing is updated approximately every 30 minutes.


I have 2 accounts – Connecticut –  DianaSantosCT.ListingBook.com

                           and New YorkDianaSantosNY.ListingBook.com

After the meeting, home – back out for errands – back home for dinner – and back out to pick up Jonathan at soccer practice… that he had in the pouring rain…

When Jonathan got into the car, he said, “This was the best practice ever!”    Oh, I wouldn’t have been so cheery – I hate getting caught in the rain and I hate the cold!  When I retire, it should be somewhere in the South.

My Life as a Realtor – Day 103

Day 103:

I can’t believe it’s November!  Halloween is over, so let’s talk Turkey!  In 26 days, I will be making 2 Turkeys to host the HolidayThanksgiving Day – to 30 somewhat guests. 

For today, it’s catch up with work and housekeeping – since I had an appointment and Halloween party yesterday.  I also squeezed in a trip to Shaw’s – a few other errands and Jonathan’s soccer game.  I am thankful it’s not an away game, saving me about 2 hours in commuting time.  We played at home… and won!

I was very happy for Jonathan and his team – and was very cold – so I admit, I watched the game from my car.

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!

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


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