It was St. Patrick's Day weekend after all, and I was asked to show a home. A neighbor told my buyer about the home and that it was BYOB. My buyer was ready for some green beer and shenanigans. Except I knew the home and it is known for the sellers request to take your shoes off at the door.
The problem is the home is very dirty. They have a lot of pets. There is lots of evidence of 'accidents" all over the carpets. My thought is I am not walking around this home in my socks.
The answer was indeed BYOB. That would be Bring Your Own Booties. Although Mrs. Buyer joked about wanting to drink so much to forget the home. Mr. Buyer loved it. He loved the cheap price. He wanted the challenge. He could see the future he said.
Right about then as we walked outside Mrs. Buyer threw her Shoe Covers at Mr. Buyer with a loud NO.
She was quite happy I keep a box of shoe covers in my car. She said she would not have walked in the home without them as no way was she taking off her shoes and walking on dirty carpets. In the end they chose another home, one that did not need any work. Mrs. Buyer won that battle.
Perhaps the MOST IMPORTANT message is to share with every consumer that my philosophy is simple, provide more personal and professional service to guide my clients through each step of the buying or selling process. All Agents are not created equal and every buyer or seller should take the time to hire the BEST not just the biggest. Those that hire me, find a dedication like no other.
