My Client Likes "Men" of Color!!!

Real Estate Agent with Realty World - Select

Recently, I had to change out a lockbox on a condo in Tyson Corners, Virginia and it just so "happened" an agent was coming down the hallway to view my listing.  Very attractive agent and her client (who I later found out was her best friend) was also very pretty.  Now, I'm an extremely happy "married" young man of 30+ years and because my wife (Lisa) is gorgeous I can "recognize" and appreciate beauty.  Ok, back to my story.

Tysons Corner


The agent went on to say my listing was very nice, it's a one bedroom (no pun intended...My humor) and it was vacant and really does show very nice.  The realtor went on to say, her client really liked the property and she would get back with me on if the "friend" wanted to place an application.  Now, as we were leaving, the realtor mentioned that her client is a dear/best friend and "likes" men of color!  The realtor was a brunette and her bestfriend client was a "blonde!"  Well, I was a bit surprised and appreciated her comment on how "handsome" I was, but the client said "he's married" and she noticed I had my wedding band on.  The realtor said, she didn't notice and can you imagine a person of "color" blushing as I hightailed back to my car. 

Anyhow, it was surely an "aha" moment for myself and just goes to show you have to be prepared for just about anything in this profession.  I haven't heard back from the agent on my listing yet, so I think I'll give her a call.  Hope her client found "everything" she was looking for!!!!!  LOL!!!  (Note, my wife encouraged me to write this blog!!!)

That is a big part of our fun in this business, the stories we get to tell!  I had a similar one, asking an agent out for coffee to discuss business... and she thought it was a date.  Never a dull moment.

Welcome to Active Rain, Rick! I was wandering too if the lady found what she was looking for. Thanks for sharing your story, and I hope you get your one bedroom condo sold soon.

BTW, Your wife has a very nice sense of humor.
