Real Estate is a hard master! It wants you to be there night or day. Now here is the problem, this weekend I am out of here for not a just a weekend but for two entire weeks!
I'm taking my son to college this weekend. Yes I am devastated! He is my youngest and my heart. Now both he and his older brother will be in Texas and . . . I'm in Southern California. What is it with these kids? I would have killed to go to college in Southern Cal! I'm not saying that I didn't love you - UT, but California has beaches, palm trees, and flowers.
We are driving my son's car - two and a half days - to school. By then my clients will be in cardiac arrest! You can imagine them by the end of two weeks. Yes I have someone covering for me, but you know how that works!
The last time I was gone for just a week, I got a call you wouldn't believe --- my seller wouldn't move out of the house! I called immediately and what did she say, "I'm not moving, they can't make me, my house isn't ready yet." The new owners called the police finally and still no luck! She wouldn't come outside so they couldn't do anything. Well, about 50 calls later - I reasoned with her, yelled at her, you name it - finally as I was about a mile from home, she moved out ---only 7 days past her COE + 2!
After that being gone two weeks in Real Estate scares me to death. Things are slow now but that makes it even more important. I don't know about you, but I need to hang on to all the clients possible. I can't put a dollar amount on the time with my son but . . .
Will I have a career when I get back?
