Dr. Seuss as your broker and training officer.

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Cornerstone Business Group Inc 0225086119

What would your office be like if Dr Seuss was the broker and primary training officer? A staff first-time home-buyer training session might go something like this:

This real estate business is quite amusing,

sometimes it's challenging, sometimes confusing.

But Realtors know the real estate rules,

and it's up to us to use our tools.

We'll help these buyers on their way, and that is how we earn our pay.

It's step one and two and three and four, and if they qualify there may be more.

They'll need a lender to look at docs, and calculate and concentrate,

And scratch his nose and wiggle his ears until a number finally appears.

And with that number in our minds, we'll start the search and what will we find?

We'll view a blue house, red house -- maybe more,
A tall house, short house, who's keeping score?

Then out of nowhere it will appear, and before you know it they'll shed a tear. 

They found their home to put down roots, to plant a garden; they'll store their boots. They'll be happy for all we did, and with the info they'll make a bid. 

And if accepted they'll go to close, and thank the Realtor they're glad they chose.

Morning Mike.

I'm sure Dr. Seuss would be proud, pity about the news from this wonderful man.  I wonder what else is going to be canceled?

It WAS NOT CANCELED.  The FAMILY of Dr. Seuss decided to STOP PUBLISHING six under-performing, unpopular books with racist imagery.  Nobody told them to, nobody demanded it - they made the decision themselves based on sound business principles. *SMH

I have loved Dr. Seuss since I was first introduced to his books in 3rd grade.  I still remember the teacher reading Bartholomew and the 500 Hats!

Hello Mike - well, real estate is definitely not alone in introducing us to a cast of characters.  And the daily lessons learned can be abundant.

Good morning Mike. Once upon a time, it seems so long ago, we elected qualified minds to go to Washington. By today's standard Dr. Suess does not qualify. And just look at some of those who represent us today! They will go down in history as idiots or are those who elected them the idiots? Enjoy your day.

Hi Mike Cooper, Broker VA,WV, MD - What a fun read!  Thanks for sharing your take.  Before all this cancel-culture hit the news I had just bought a Sr. Seuss book for my grandson.  He is a super huge fan of "The Grinch". He evens sports a Grinch mask.

Very cute post, great job on the rhyme.  Too bad some others had to inject a spirit of negativity into what is a fun and whimsical post.
