Is This For The Old People?
I have several homes for sale in over 55 communities and today I got this very interesting call from an agent.
She asked if she could show one of them. It’s lockbox and vacant, I said, so go ahead and show it. Her next question was: Is it for the old people? I said, excuse me what did you ask me? She repeated it. I guess I was insulted because I told her that I was of that age group and I felt insulted by her question.
She got all flustered and apologized for asking it in that way but her customer was 25 so she guessed she wouldn’t be showing it. (She didn’t notice the 55+ notice in MLS?). No, I agreed, she wouldn’t be showing it and next time she should ask the question more diplomatically.
Sometimes, I have a mean streak.
And sometimes someone brings it out.
Or maybe I'm just a grumpy old person.
