The Love Boat....So Exciting and New......!!!

By
Real Estate Agent with Helping people in transition 210155

I took some buyers out to look at homes here in the

Raleigh/ Cary/ Apex

 area the other day, and one of the homes they liked

has an agent bonus associated with it......

 A seven day cruise to the Caribbean!

Craig Rutman, your Raleigh/ Cary/ Apex area Realtor can help you find your new home...and then enjoy an all expenses paid cruise to the Caribbean!

Now, don't get me wrong here. I would never steer a client towards purchasing a home simply because of the payout or an agent bonus is offered.

Not only would that be illegal, it would also be unethical to put my needs above my clients.

But, I am hoping this is the home they choose!

With the frenzy that's been taking place these past few weeks, I could use a vacation... especially an all expenses paid one!

Needless to say, I'm ready!

Debbie - Thank you for those kind words. Have I told you how much I like you lately?!! Oh, I'll sell them a house. Not sure if it'll be this one. But, whichever one it is, I'll be happy...and so will they!

I think we could all use a vacation after the last couple months. It certainly has been pretty crazy trying to get all these short sales signed off before the tax deadline.

Craig ~ good news, they aren't arresting Heather.  They know her car was the one that hit  the light, but can't prove she was in the car.  But if she can't make the cruise with you, I may be available.  I can try to hide in some luggage!!! LOL

Nick - Just for you Nick I'll try to post more Heather, less Craig!!!

Al & Peggy - With camera in hand, I'm ready!

Bill - Heck no Bill! You're too good a Realtor for me to waste your talents being a gopher! But in our spare time, my car could use a good detailing from time to time!!!

Jim - I hear you! It's been a crazy season.

Todd - I just hope this frenzy continues once the tax credit expires.

Dawn - Well, if Heather can't make it, we'll figure out a way to get you on that cruise!

Toula - Not only would it be something, it would be something else!

Craig, don't forget sunscreen and judging from those white legs, you better make it a SPF 50!

Too funny you silly boy. Don't you just love those incentives? Sometimes a price reduction works just as well lol.

Jenny - I'm won't showing homes based on incentives. But this one would be nice! However, if my buyers were waivering, a price reduction would probably help them make up their minds a whole lot easier. I'm certain they'd rather see $4,000 in their pockets rather than the sight of me lounging in the Caribbean!!!
