MR. BAUER'S HAMMER

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Ellison Realty, Inc

Years ago before we were in real estate we lived in a rental.  We were care takers for a commercial property in exchange for reduced rent.  Our responsibilities were generally lawn, yard and minor exterior maintenance.

The interior maintenance was performed by the owner.

My oldest daughter was fascinated by Mr. Bauer - one of the owners who did some of the major repairs and upgrades.  She would occupy herself for hours with a few pieces of wood my hammer and some nails.  One day she said "Dad we need to get a good steady hammer like Mr. Bauer's - one that dosen't hit your fingers.

Dan, my husband will "hire" the tenants little kids when he's doing work around their house. They usually follow him around picking up scraps of wood or sweep the floor. He gives the a couple of dollars. They love it!
