Yesterday I received a call from a potential buyer who had seen a new listing of mine on the WEB. I was so excited to have my phone ring!!! Summer time in Florida is usually on the slow side but with a slow Real Estate Market its been slower. They wanted to see the property immediately. Of cause I told them! I'll meet you in an hour. I went to the property which is located in Palm Beach on South Ocean Drive, a beautiful stretch of million dollar condo's. My listing is at $1.395.
The clients turned out to be a delightful couple from Canada. They loved my listing but felt they needed to look around more. I sensed an opportunity since they had come on their own, so I told them that I would be happy to take them around the area. They agreed to meet with me today.
As I made my appointments I knew that each agent I spoke with was excited to be getting a showing. It was great to be working and great to see some agent friends that I havn't seen in a while. Even the Doormen were happy to see us working today!!!!!
Don't get me wrong, business has been busy for me this year. But the action around here in Palm Beach kind of fizzles in May as everyone embarks on The Hamptons, in New York or Newport, Rhode Island.
My clients thanked me at the end of the day and told me I did a great job. They are now interested in not only my listing but another listing that I took them to today. I'm positive that they will be my clients for years to come.
As I drove home, I had a smile on my face and knew that Real Estate Sales is my kind of job. I get to meet beautiful people and show them amazing homes and make a wonderful living.
Here's wishing to all of you that your phone rings..........
