Fred and Ethel – the BNI Whales that have been traveling with me since our meeting last week – apologize for being absent yesterday. Monday consumed them as they realized how much time and energy is needed to successfully close a short sale. They were back in full force today though! Spreading the word about the great stuff that can happen with BNI!
The whales started the day posing on the might jeep while it was being loaded with all the necessary items to carry out a full day of real-iting (Fred and Ethel have quite the sense of humor). They are looking forward to get out and away from the desk and the phone after yesterday!
Fred and Ethel stopped by 10 Dighton Street in Worcester which closed last week to pick up the signs and the lockbox. The new owner was home and they wished him well! Fred thought this was a great way to start the day!
Stopping again on the way into the office for a weekly inspection on a foreclosure listing. 18 Burncoat Street in Leicester is a foreclosure that just came out of contract and is back on the market. With a new price of $59,500 and a passing Title V – it’s a great buy!
Into the office for Business Builders. Business Builders is an accountability group that meets bi-weekly and is run by Pam Crawford. It helps keep Realtors ON track by holding them accountable to their goals. What works, what doesn’t and most importantly…what are we actually doing that generates business. Great group! It’s nice to connect with the other agents in the office too.
Fred and Ethel set up in the office for a few hours before the next appointment. Confirming that their recent buyers are good with their pre-qual on a house that needs a new septic, recalling all the banks involved in the short sales, letting the new rental clients that they…above four other applications…got the rental they wanted and then off again!
After a few stops – checking in at a broker’s open to preview a new construction in Leicester…stopping in on the sellers of 10 Dighton in Worcester to wish them well in their trip south for the winter and finally…
Staples. Ugh! Fred and Ethel feel the same love/hate feeling that I do…so many things that could be used…so much money could be spent! Must…keep…to…budget!! This would be a time to consult with Andrea Goodman…Swampdrainer! She keeps business…in business by keeping their PnL’s tight! At any rate…Fred and Ethel learn that jump drives fail and they must be replaced.
Ending the day with Wes Oliver from Prestige Mortgage at Picadilly’s in Westborough for a frosty cold one and nice chat…Fred and Ethel finally get home to spend some quality time with the huskies…
