I took a half day off this last weekend to ride my motorcycle one last time before the rainy season arrives. As I usually work most days I thought I could perform an Alamo home search for a client while enjoying my ride. Boy was it hard to stop and view those open Alamo homes! The weather was just perfect, the leaves had turned to their fall colors, green grass sprouting in the orchards, the world was a beautiful place. Everyone was enjoying the last days of fall.
Seeing all those open home signs gave me a feeling of sorrow for those real estate agents working their Alamo open homes. The market has been a little slow here so most would be happy to have any prospective buyer show up, even nosy neighbors. Then I got to thinking, do the sellers know how hard their agents are working for them? How their dedication to getting their client's homes sold means they are giving up this beautiful day, not to mention time away from their families.
This blog post is dedicated to all those agents out there last Sunday, holding open those Alamo homes. I wish you good luck and hope you found a buyer for your listing or a buyer to work with. You hardworking agents are the backbone of the real estate industry, and never let anyone tell you that you make to much money, or that its an easy job. If you are not a real estate agent, spend the next beautiful weekend at any open home, the agent would welcome the company, and you would get to see how hard those agents are working for you.
If I had the right tools to make videos of these rides I would, then post it and share the world's beauty with those dedicated agents working the weekend.
Keep up the good work, there is light at the end of the tunnel, and no, it's not a train.
