Freedom of Expression ~ Observations From a Back Seat Office

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with MoonDancer Realty, Dillsboro,NC NC# 218097



Have you ever shown property from the back seat of a car? If you haven’t, you really need to try it. The buyers and I spent about 7 hours together yesterday looking at houses in Franklin, NC. The buyers drove, sitting up front getting acquainted with the area and I had the rare luxury of the entire back seat in their brand new vehicle with the awesome paint color of “Dark Cherry”. Very cool.

Anyhow, I got to take in our incredible mountain sights from my back window seat and had the rare pleasure of being able to consider the other half of the back seat as my own private office. Finally, a place to lay the folder…spread out the MLS flyers…a cup holder for my coffee and a place for my keys, camera and phone. Now…that’s the life!

It was perfect - delightful conversation - spontaneous chuckles, giggles, guffaws and belly laughs - and since it ALWAYS boils down to all about me - photo ops.

Even if I’m the driver I’m pretty observant about the scenery around me but it doesn’t compare to what gets noticed from my back seat office. I really got a chance to appreciate the unbridled freedom of expression some of the homeowners in Franklin were sharing with passersby.

I'll have to give viewing from the backseat a try. I do most of the driving for the family and rarely get the chance to smell the roses. I bet it was pretty liberating for you.

Good morning Mona. What a pleasure to not drive. It doesn't happen often but it is always a pleasant break from the day to day. Great photos. Have a good day.

Mona ~ It's amazing, the things we notice from the back seat isn't it? When I'm the one doing the driving around, I don't have the luxury of being able to "See" everything there is to see. Having that back seat office is a nice way to concentrate on things that may have been missed otherwise. Have a great day.

Lets shake things up at your home today!

Something tells me that even from the back seat office, you were still in the "drivers seat" Mona.

Jon, today has been a GREAT day.  The buyers are so excited about the house they've put under contract (not the one with the seashell lol).  In fact, it's been a great couple of weekends.

Roger, I think the buyers will think I was a backseat driver.  But that's okay...they got what they wanted too, lol.

While I prefer to be the driver, have to admit you see more as a passenger! Enjoy your day!

Wayne, I do love driving also but it was such a pleasure to watch the buyers enjoy the front window.

Allen, thanks.  I hadn't thought of it that way but you are right.  Sometimes the bigger pictures distracts us from the little stuff.
