One of those days........

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

I had an appointment today. A man was coming to pick up some lamps I posted online. He contacted me for the last three days to confirm our appointment and make sure the lamps were still here. About an hour and a half before he was to come, he indicated he was called into work because three others called out. Could we do this tomorrow? 

This happens a lot. It is easy to post and sell online, but people are unreliable both in person or those who tell me their checks are in the mail. Life is like this too. The good news is I don't depend upon this income and I am at home enjoying the day.

When you think about real estate, it is time to focus. I have helped people for close to thirty years in all areas, and made the process not only simple but enjoyable. Why should you go it alone or settle for less? Call me and find a partner to help, direct and get you where you want to be.

Sheila - it is rough to make plans when you have to wait for a buyer and then when it doesn't happen that is frustrating.

You're wise to know that these things happen and have learned not to let them ruin your day. Hopefully the man really wants the lamps and will be grateful if they are still available to him.

I can imagine that the holiday weekend has disrupted the working schedule for a number of people.  I have a friend who was also called in because others had decided to skip town.

It's always frustrating when things like this happen, although at least he was in touch and it sounds legit. Hope he shows tomorrow!! Or will the cold weather keep him away!?

Being flexible in life is important, things seem to change throughout the day and we are always having to reschedule things we plan to do.
