It will be a roller coaster day and the Fat Lady will sing!

Real Estate Agent with RETIRED 200305001

Today will be a Roller Coaster day for me. I will start by  taking the NAR 3 hour required Quadrennial Ethics class. It always seems long and a lot of it boring, a "downer" if you will. You have all taken it your selves, so you know.

Later I will get a call that I have a recording of escrow and it will time to call the Buyers in and hand over the keys.That is always an "upper" for me!  This one was a real challenge, more of a herding cats and "pushing rope down the hall" type of deal. That is when the fat lady sings. I will end the day exhausted and happy! How about your day?

Well if you have to end a day exhausted at least let it be happy!

Hi Rob, Getting credit hours and handing a buyer keys after a difficult transaction is not a bad way to spend the day. I just had to take the required 3 hour LAARC class for renewal this July. Never fun, but I always learn at least one thing!

What a coincidence! Mine is July 21st so at the tail end of the cancer sign. Seems these two years come around very quickly of late.

Rob, you are right, ethics is just plain boring but required.   Glad you had a closing, and definitely an UPPER!

I will be taking Ethics and Legal this Thursday. I don't like the class however, I have found a great Realtor who is a great teacher of Real Estate and is a great teacher and keeps you interested in what he is saying. It will be great.
