Hey! How did your Open House go? It was a beautidul day and I know that sometimes people do other things rather than attend open houses when the weather is nice!

Russell, I hope this open house did well. you seem to have remarkable success meeting people at your open houses and even selling them now and again! See you soon!

Debe glad to hear you have been bust, that is good news no matter where you are!

Mattie it was a beautiful day and though slower in traffic than usual all the people were legitimate buyers and I may have picked up a buyer!

Anne I do enjoy open houses as they are good for exposing the home to potential buyers and i always like sharing information about the area at the same time. I am not one of those who hovers over folks as they walk through and I tend to have more experience than many of the new agents who sit at open houses only to nab buyers!

I hope your Open Hosuewent well on Sunday. I thought it might be a good idea to post about the group of open houses we are having the week after Super Bowl! Just a suggestion. Thanks!

Hi Russell- How DID the open house go?  BTW, do you supply food or snacks...just curious as we don't have very many homes in that price range in Titusville.  Also are you alone or do you bring an assistant?  Hoping it went very well :-)

Betina No problem, I actually don't mind staying late and will visit as long as any lookers are interested. let's have coffee and catch up sometime!

Gail It was slower (probably because the weather was so nice) but the folks who came by were real and not just tire kickers. I usually do the open house myself unless it's an extremely large home and then I have an assistant accompany me. I don't serve anything unless it's a broker open house and then you just about HAVE to put out a nice spreadd to entice them to show up! HAH! All went as well as could be expected and I may have a new person that's interested on the Old Westlake area so that's good.

That is a gorgeous house, Russell.  The kitchen in particular is to die for, and yes, I could make due with that view just fine.  Cognac and Cubans, anyone?
