This Agent's Last Real Estate Closing for 2014

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold DRE #00697006

These Vanuatu geckos are getting used to me screaming at them now. I spot their shadows as they cautiously approach the threshold to my villa and immediately clap my hands while warning them in a loud voice to get the hell outta my room. They scamper away. Not messing with this crazy woman, they must think. I have yet to see a really BIG gecko, which has gotta tell ya something about how they are treated by others on the island.

Although, as my husband is fond of telling me, they do eat the bugs, but I doubt they make much of a dent in those hard-shelled giant beetles, one of which I found upside down with its tiny little feet in the air begging for a toothpick with a flag.

I've had the last of my real estate closings this week for 2014. That's almost as sad as an upside-down beetle. You can read more and view the rest of my photographs from the town of Tanoliu in my personal blog today at this link:  Sacramento Realtor Last Sale for 2014 Still Closed From Vanuatu.

On one trip to Puerto Vallarta, there were a lot of geckos that hung out in my room.  I remember taking a nap, while the maid cleaned the kitchen. Esmeralda's voice was so wonderfully sweet.  And, the geckos seemed to rhythmically move to her notes!

Thanks, John. It's been a tremendous year.

Myrl Jeffcoat So the maid was talking to you when you were asleep or she was singing to the geckos or . . . something's missing in this story. I will say that the geckos in Puerto Vallarta are 10 times bigger.

When are you coming back?  We all miss you ranting about the traffic, not finding a parking space and all the other things that are common place in your busy day.....

It is the Iguanas in Puerto Vallarta that are large.  The Geckos are smaller. Everyone sings in Puerto Vallarta.  The maid would sing while she worked, and on that particular afternoon, I was drifting in and out of sleep, while the geckos played and the maid sang.

Hi Elizabeth.  What is your average sales price for 2014?  Talking myna birds at 5AM is very irritating.

My first encounter with Geckos was in the Philippines. THe little guys love the ceiling of most places I visited. I always wondered how they were not falling on  my head. Such interesting creatures. They do eat the mosquitos

Yes, Mryl, I was thinking about the iguanas. But the geckos are bigger too, LOL.

I don't know Conrad, probably around $300K.

Me, too, Conrad.

Hi Chris Ann: I enjoy chatting with you through our blogs as well!

Hi Janis: They do love the ceilings and it is uncomfortable to have them hanging over your head. One fell on my arm and I almost tore the bloody thing off.
