Don't you hate it when you can't get it all done? Yesterday was a long day of responding to calls and emails, showing properties and writing an offer on a Kihei REO. Sometimes there's just not enough time to get it all done before midnight. I could sure use a clone, or maybe an assistant, at times. Plenty of buyers have been calling lately and it feels like the real estate tide might be turning.
It seems I spend all my waking hours tethered to the computer, like it's some kind of appendage. What did we ever do BC (before computers)? How do people spend day after day, year after year sitting at a desk and staring at the screen? I can't do it. I need to get up and get moving before my eyes go square and my ass turns to wood.
Yesterday it took over 2 hours to see 2 Haiku listings, and they were very close to each other. At the second one, we had to hike up a rough road to the top of the 4 acre new listing, and the ocean views were fantastic. It was good exercise, just what I needed. I can see that a lot of agents won't bother getting out of the car for this sale. Nice property, nice price - I would buy it if I didn't already have one...haha. The buyers liked it and I have emailed them some sold comps... waiting for a response.
Of course the cell phone was patchy up there, and I had a few messages from neighbor Barb saying she wasn't connecting with the WWOOFer and might have to leave her stranded in Paia! I might have to drive in and find her! I couldn't even call back to see what was up. But by the time we got back to the parking lot at Twin Falls I got through... all is well, they connected and they're on their way home. There was a fatal car accident by Ho'okipa Beach - the traffic was awful and Barb had to reroute through Baldwin Ave. and upcountry. I hope it wasn't anyone we know. They aren't releasing any names yet.
I think I'm caught up now, at least down to the bottom layer... still website updates, and a Pukalani newsletter to do, so just a short break before back at it. Good thing it's a long weekend! Might even get some blogging done.
