Getting ready for the weekend

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

     Well well well.  The week goes by so fast.  Now enter the weekend.  Oh yes, get ready for the Open House this Sunday!  Oops.  It is sooo easy to get caught up during the week calling clients and customers (potential clients), sending and returning e-mails, networking, running errands while out grabbing a bite to eat, researching the local market, playing with son in evening, communicating daily "happenings" with wife, catching some sleep, losing sleep... 

     Wow.  Now it's Friday night, Toastmasters in the morning, getting computer fine-tuned in the afternoon, watching son while wife tries to have a life with friends later on, church Sunday morning....and then....and then....Open House, 2-4, 2-5 if busy.  Please come see this incredible house!

     Oh yes, did you know that I put together all of the material after midnight on Friday?  Ahhh, the life of a Realtor.  Okay, some day soon, I will have assistants helping me.  It's part of my goals and dreams.  However, at least I get to perfect what I think is important in putting on a successful Open House.  That way, I can guide others later on down the road.

I will be living in a parallel universe with you on Sunday, mine is from 2-4.  I did manage to get over there today to put out signs and to put the rider on the house sign!

It does stay busy, and that is good compared to the opposite!  Have a great weekend anyway and good luck with the open house!

I would love to be your Realtor® in Akron Ohio!

And people think we Realtors have an easy life. I worked 14 hours today to get ready for this weekend. Good luck to you and all my AR friends this weekend!

Best of luck with the Open!  I'd use it to meet some of the neighbors even if you have to walk around door to door inviting them to the open house "in case a co-worker is in the market for a home". That way if the turn out is low, the neighbors may think of you anyway if they need to sell sometime in the future.

Cindy, Best of luck to yours.  You're ahead of me.  I'll put signs out in the morning.

Denise,  Yes it does indeed beat the alternative.  Thanks and hope you have a great weekend as well.

David,  Yes, I'm just getting back to the blog now, on Sat. night.  Wow, you're right, but others have rocks I'm just as happy not to have to carry.  Hang in there yourself , and all of my AR Friends as well.

Teresa,  Great idea.  I'm putting the signs out in the morning and will meet them in early afternoon, before the Open.
