I kind of like the crazy days.
It’s been a busy week for me. I’ve sold 3 houses, have 9 pending sales, and have been out with several new buyers.
This time of year always reminds me of that scene in Bambi where all the animals come out on the first day of spring. I’m meeting new people and seeing old friends. The days are getting longer and I am close to being back in shorts.
Many of my past clients are calling to say they are thinking of moving. Several of my past clients and friends have referred their friends or family to me.
I had one especially busy day this week.
I had to show a new construction home to a friend who has used me 3 times so far. There was not a lockbox on the model home, so I had to find another model home with the same key, then return that key after the showing.
Then I had to rush to Winchester to see a house a friend and past client may sell. It was out in the country in a beautiful setting. I took my little M Roadster. Back roads from Masterson Station to deep in Clark Co. Lots of fun.
The whole time I was at that house, my phone was going crazy with texts and calls. One was an agent telling me she was sending an offer on a listing of mine. I already had an offer so I had to tell the other agent we were getting a new offer.
I check my email before pulling out of their driveway. 17 emails. One was a new client who was referred to me from her daughter, who has used me a couple of times. They were ready to make an offer on a house I had shown them in Clark Co the day before.
It was already well past dinner time and I had to get some work done, so I did the only thing that made sense. I got a pizza and ate it in my car while I returned calls, texts, and emails.
I’ve never eaten pizza in the dark, nor in such a small car. All I can say is that I am glad the interior is black and I was wearing a red shirt.
I got home, wrote the offer for the Clark Co property, worked on the offers for my new listing, and finally got done about 10:PM.
This weekend looks pretty calm since I crammed about 3 days worth of work into that one day. Saturday is Cars and Coffee, then Sunday I am going for a long drive in the country with some other car enthusiast friends.
The busy days make the not so busy days even better.
Glad it is almost spring!
