A funny thing happend

Mortgage and Lending with Oceanside Mortgage Group Inc

  All I had to share this very funny story.  We hosted my sister in laws 25th wedding anniversary at our house on Saturday!  As some of you know my wife is a C21 agent, with company magnets on her car doors!  We told all who were attending we would park my wifes car at the end out our very long driveway with balloons on it as a land mark for our house!  Thinking the door mags and balloons would draw attention... Well the funny part is that neither of us thought about what we did until we had TOTAL strangers show up to our door asking if they could see the OPEN house!  Like I said its a funny one...

George - That's hilarious! Did you show the house or invite them in for the party? That could have been fun! Maybe they'd pay big for your house? Too funny.

The funny thing is that they walked in with a bunch of guest... I didn't notice until I was welcoming them in the door. The guy asks me right out of the gate, "this isn't an open house is it"?  If he didn't say anything I would thought that they were from my wifes crazy side of the family!  goodness we have been laughing about this since Saturday...

I told my wife last night, we now know the secret to a successfully open house...

no news paper ad, no open house signs, just park the car on the front lawn with balloons and plan a party for 40...  People will show...  this is too funny...
