Each morning I begin my day by reading all the emails I missed being away from my computer, that need responses. (I can do this from my Crackberry, but sometimes you need to write more, or do some research first.) Facebook and Activerain are the next projects, and usually am ready to tackle the day by 8:30 or 9:00. I got my E & O insurance renewed for another year, so I am able to STAY in this business! This morning we are actually having a few snowflakes -- FINALLY! It will only get to 31 degrees, but there is not to be any accumulation, so guess the snow blower will remain in the garage --- DRATS!
Yesterday was a wonderful day --- a past investor/buyer closed on their investment property and was a great walk through, and a smooth closing! It was bank owned, so it was quick! We went for dinner and celebration after wards. We met a contractor at the property to do some minor repairs, and measured windows for window coverings to be done today! We were happy to see the furnace DID work, white dirty, but heat is appreciated this time of year - even though the furnace will be replaced.
I made a few calls while on the road to set up more client "pop-bys" the week after Christmas. I also made a couple phone calls to two men that lost their wives this year. One was my boss, that I just adored while working at Safeway (20 years prior to real estate). He retired in 1986, and I have made efforts to pick him and his wife up for lunch at least once a year since his retirement. Mrs. C died this year in February, and he is not "a spring chicken", as he likes to say.... He told me he goes to Panera Bread each morning at 8:30, so one of these days (within a week), I will surprise him, and have breakfast with him! He will be 88 in January!
For this time of year, having lost your spouse of YEARS has to be traumatic, and having friends around and KNOW you don't have to be alone hopefully has to help a little!
