How A Cowgirl Saved A Terrible Awful Day

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Century 21 Sherlock Homes


I was having a terrible awful day on Wednesday.  People were going out of their way to torture me.  I think some of them even took a bus to get to me.  Two deals died in a New York minute.  A buyer on a co-op backed out and the seller of the co-op had an accepted on a house and down they came like a house of cards.

Another buyer due to close two weeks ago now wants $20,000 (that's right folks) off the price of the house because she thinks prices have gone down.  I wanted to share with her what I think but no one will let me.  Enough said it was a stinky day.  While I was in the bank my phone rang.  It was a cowgirl.

It was Tammy Pearce and I know she is a cowgirl, she wears spurs.  Well slap my chaps if she doesn't have the most bubbly voice.  She made my day.  We chatted for about twenty minutes and we talked about family and deals and trick or treating and she just made me laugh.  She changed my mood.  You couldn't stay morose and stay on the phone with her.

I am just amazed at how different things are in different parts of the country.  She is horrified that in NY we live one on top of another literally (apartment buildings) and I was flabbergasted that she takes the kids trick or treating in an honest to God hay ride.  We can walk and hit 40 houses in an hour but we were both excited to take the kids trick or treating.  Different but the same.

Thanks Tammy, thanks for taking the time to call, thanks for lifting up my spirits.

Liz, Liz, Liz....................only you can write about a bad day and make me're the one always showing up at the right time, and you don't even know it.  So glad Tammy could boost your mood, she's a pretty cool person from everything I've read on her blog.

So glad that Tammy called you right at that moment..  I'm a country girl... we live on 160 acres.  Idabel with 6500 people in the town is more than I want to live in the middle of.  You would NEVER look at 40 houses in a week here... for one thing there's not that many for sale..  :)

Hey Liz, thanks for the great story!  Your "slap my chaps" line made me laugh too!  I'm glad to put a bright spot in a tough day :)  If it wasn't for laughter we would all be crying.  Have a more-than-awesome week!

Liz:  When we least expect it the universe will show you the way....yours came in the shape of a COWGIRL!  Yeehii....laughter is the best medicine (maybe she was a Shaman as well).  Glad your mood was changed by a few words from another - what one person takes away, another one gives.
