Day 185:

Yahoo!  It’s Friday!!

Started the day with a morning appointment in Danbury CT – a townhouse in the Lakewood complex – a great unit with lots of room right on the Danbury/New Fairfield border.  There are no interior photos of this unit, so I will so my best to give you a tourpicture a walk-up unit – eliminating anyone above you possibly making noise – walk into a spacious Living Room with Fireplace, Balcony and Vaulted Ceilings – Lead into the Kitchen with Breakfast Bar, pantry and Dinning Room with views of the woods – also, one of the 3 bedrooms in on this level – which has been converted into a study with shelving on all four walls – lastly, 1/2 a bath.  Moving on up to the 2nd floor to 2 Bedrooms and a Full Bath.  This unit also includes a garage!

From the Lakewood complex, my client and I headed to view 4 more townhouses in the Shepherd Hill complex – which is a hop and a skip from I-84.  I always enjoy viewing identical models – but all so different with each owners choices in flooring, paint, furniture,…

Afterwards, I had a quick lunch at home and went to the office until my afternoon appointment – a home in Patterson, NY.   After my client left, I went to pre-view a neighborhood in Quail Ridge – also in Patterson

On my way home, I added more listing sheets to the brochure box outside, in front of one of my listings

Before dinner, I decided to try something out.  I had read that to take a great exterior photo of a home, wait 1/2 an hour after sunset,  turn on all the lights of the windows that will be photographed – and snap a picture

Well, I’m going to try this again.  This time I have to turn on the lights in 4 other areas of the house.

After dinner, it was Bunco in New Fairfield!
