redondo beach: The House and the Old Lady - 03/27/09 01:59 PM
So I’m holding an open house in a nice part of town. The house is of the Tuscan variety with multiple bedrooms, a pool, a basement with a 1,000-bottle wine cellar and many custom features. Traffic is brisk as the listing just came out. In walks a lady holding on to a slow moving elderly woman with a cane. They tour the first floor and come around to the basement door. Come on mom let’s go down to the basement, she says. I’m thinking, IS SHE NUTS! Oh no thanks honey, I’ll wait for you here, answers mom. Oh come on (0 comments)
redondo beach: Marriage, Houses and True Love - 03/19/09 05:19 PM
So I’m entering a better than average house on a bad street in a nice neighborhood. I’m here on a listing appointment with Gracie, who was referred to me. She’s a very nice lady, short, thin, attractive but I can’t understand half the things she says because she has a very thick accent and she speaks in broken English. But I can tell Gracie is sharp.

redondo beach: Spinning for Clients - 02/18/09 11:48 PM
So I’m running into my spinning class at the gym in order to get a bike next to Betsy, who sources tell me is thinking of putting her house on the market, but I find her surrounded by three other Realtors; so much for my networking prowess. I grab the bike behind her and already I’m hearing these Realtors hitting on my client. OK, she’s not my client…yet…but I was visualizing. Betsy’s real nice, in her mid 50’s and the best spinner in the class cause she spends half her life in the gym and she’s been a gym buddy over (7 comments)
redondo beach: Dogs and Real Estate, Real Estate and Dogs - 02/17/09 01:38 AM
So I’m walking my dogs and I get a call. I’d like to ask you some questions about your Artesia listing, the realtor says. I answer, what would you like to know? She says, well, how many bedrooms does it have? I say, don’t you have the mls listing? I lost it and I’m in a hurry, she answers gruffly. OK…well I hate to say this but one of the dogs just pooped and I have to pick it up…can you hang on? This is ridiculous, she blurts out, I’m in a hurry! Just hang on, I plead. Moments later, I’m (6 comments)
