I pride myself on having all the tools when I am out and about scouting for land, doing rentals, or checking up on my listings etc. One day, I picked up a pair of binoculars that were on sale not because I needed them, but because I thought it was a neat thing to have. But then, I started using them to read addresses
PERFECT REAL ESTATE TOOL
It worked like a charm too. I didn't have to turn around if I missed something or cross over a busy street. I would just pull over and get out the binocs. I even liked doing it.....
Well, imagine what it looks like to the casual observer....
1. Peeping Tom
2. Bird watcher
3. Undercover agent
4. Man spying on his wife
5. Lawsuit discovery
6. Terrorist Activity
ADD FLASHLIGHT TO BINOCS...
Sometimes I find myself either out in the evening or in places that have no lighting and I would use a flashlight and the binocs to find a street to turn on, landmark or an address.The stares I got from people were not those of approval or understanding. It is one thing to do it during the day, but towards the evening..? NO
THE COVER STORY...JUST SAY YOUR A REAL ESTATE AGENT
The story a wrong doer would tell that no one would believe is that they are just an ordinary Real Estate agent. That is where I would be arrested, detained, and checked for wants and warrants...Can you imagine the questioning. What office are you from? What are you doing in this area. Where are your listings. Show me your license and can anyone vouch for you. No one uses bincoulars in Real Estate. Please get out of the car.. NOW
LAYING LOW FOR NOW
Look, I still have the binocs but I am not quick to pull them out like I used to....
