If You Were My Next Listing, Where Would You Be?

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Mountain Partners

    I am constantly asking my wife, Kathy, " If you were my car keys, where would you be?"

    She usually responds,"If I were your car keys, I would be hanging on the key rack by the door."

    If I were your next listing, I would be on today's list of expired listings

    If I were your next listing, I would be advertising my house For Sale By Owner

    If I were your next listing, I would be asking my friends if they know a good Realtor

    If I were your next listing, I would be looking on my refrigerator for that magnet that that Realtor knocked on my door and gave to me two years ago.

    If I were your next listing, I would be reading that newsletter that comes in the mail even though I threw ten of them away before I became interested in selling my house.

    If I were your next listing, I would be speaking to that lady in the grocery store wearing that name badge from XYZ Realty.

    If I were your next listing, I would be walking into a Open House in my own neighborhood so I could "get a feel for the market"

    If I were your next listing, I would be calling my neighbor that has his house listed and finding out if they are happy with their Realtor.  I know their house is listed because I received a post card informing me of this hot news.

    If I were your next listing, I would respond to that ad offering a free market analysis.

    If I were your next listing, I would be looking at a summons from the clerk of the circuit court informing me that my house is being foreclosed.  I would probably go to my computer and look for some articles and information to help me with this crushing problem.

    If I were your next listing, I would be at the local Rotary club or Kiwanis club or Garden club.  If this weeks' speaker was a local Realtor telling us about the local situation, I would go talk to that guy after the meeting.

    If I were your next listing, I would be at church and I would know that my church friend is in real estate and can help me.

    If I were your next listing, I would probably be out running a 5K race on Saturday morning.  When I saw you wearing your Climer School Of Real Estate T-Shirt, I would probably ask, "Are you in real estate?".  When you told me you just finished Broker school, I would be imprssed.

    If I were your next listing, I would probably be at a real estate investment club meeting learning how to better invest in real estate.

    If I were your next listing, I would certainly be glad when you called me to help me solve the biggest problem in my life right now.

How true it all is.  I'm always asking..." Where are my car keys"  I kind of like your scenerio.

 Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
