What's in your car when you are showing property?
Well, I guess this subject depends on where you live and the climate.
If you live in a cold region...I'd have a thermus jug with some hot water and some hot chocolate!
However, here in south east Florida, the weather is hot in the summer. I always have a cooler with Gatorade, water, soda, snacks, and some treats for the little ones.
In my area, I am always aware that many people that desire to retire in Florida may have a variety of health issues, I guess it's my 25 years of working in the health field that makes me worry and to be prepared.
The most serious customers that one may encounter on a showing is a diabetic. Their sugar levels may fluctuate... after many hours of looking at property. I always have candy, a Pepsi/Coke or two - not diet (no sugar) in my cooler in my trunk.
I also keep some pretzels, some energy bars, some peanuts/dried fruits...Everyone is different and sometimes we are looking longer than we might expect.
What do you have in your trunk? AND, I know...a screw driver, a hammer, RE signs, riders with your own name, pool, etc.
So, do you feel you need to be aware of the situations that you might incur while showing multiple properties. Should you expect this? Should you as an agent be prepared? Do you know CPR and should you?
What do you all think? Public and agents here, this is important to me as an agent.
