My Buyers Loaded Up a 30 Pack of Beer for the Tour!

Back in the early days of my Real Estate career I had connected with a couple via my website from Kentucky, we emailed back and forth with homes to see and ultimately hotel itinerary.   I was geared up and ready for a tour of about 20 homes all in the nearby Sandia Mountains.  These folks were looking for mountain properties and I was going to help them find their dream home.  

I arrive at their hotel at 9:00am and we greet each other as though we were long lost friends.  I had to notice my customer AKA Billy Bob was drinking a beer...recall it’s 9:00am...seemed odd!  We chit chat a bit and they gather their personal affects for the day then Billy Bob grabs a handle on this huge cooler on the floor and asked me to help hime put it in my trunk! Uhh (rookieIce Chest Full of Beer mistake here) sure! Just as we drop this behemoth in my trunk he opens it up & grabs another cold one.  So my buyers loaded up a 30 pack of beer for the tour! We pile in my car and off we go!

About the time we hit highway speed Billy Bob lights up a cigarette then asks if he can smoke IN MY CAR..Uhh (another rookie mistake) sure...grumbling roll down the window please.  At our first stop, BB’s first priority was you guessed it grab another brewsky but this time for him and his wife then lights up another stoggie..OMG!  What have I done?  It’s too late to look back...right?  So we tour homes while drinking beer, smoking ciggies and just having one whale of a good time!  I am having fun I think! Please don’t think they are rude or anything,  I mean they did offer to share their canned delights!  I did put my foot down when they started walking through peoples homes while sucking their ciggies n suds and peeing in their trees.  

Long story with a short ending! I went to pick them up the following day to see some more homes and re-visit a few favorites. I never saw or heard from them again!  Hey I bet I was a good tour guide though!

If your looking for a Realtor to help you find an Albuquerque Home I would be glad to help you but please don't bring your beer, we can celebrate after closing.

Ralph...Your are so right it was crazy! I honestly don't think buying a home was ever in their minds..just a party! Glad it brought a laugh that's what I had to do.

I think we have all had our share of time ill spent with folks that shouldn't be in the car. However, I have never heard  one of these stories as funny as yours! Could be a movie scene!

We learn and grow through our experiences in life!

Deborah~ Oh it was quite the ride, we had fun but what a waste of my time!

Caroline~ Glad it made you smile, I had to smile as I pulled this one out of my memory.

Judi~ You are so right, I have spent too many hours in the car with folks that didn't need to be there.  I guess in the end it all balances out. I'm making a movie next!  LOL  Have a good day.

John, I'm glad you didn't lose your humor over this!  They didn't need a Realtor, they needed a chauffeur.  Next time, someone wants your  help to load their cooler into your car, you better run!  lol

Hi Silvia..No doubt I learned a couple of lessons on this fiasco! Honestly I don't think they thought anything about it.  Thanks for dropping in, your comments are always appreciated.
