My New Gig

I'm three weeks into my new "job" and lets just call it less than fabulous. What is this new job of mine?? a secretary at re/max. I sit at a desk with a phone, computer, and fax machine ALL DAY. I'm too hyperactive for this! I have a hard time focusing at times, but the day goes by pretty fast so that helps. But in a few weeks of answering the phones I've learned people are just not that smart.

I have this conversation just about every day:
Caller: I just drove past a house with your sign in the yard and I am interested in it.
Me: Ok, do you know who the listing agent is on the house?
Caller: No
Me: What's the name of the road the house is on?
Caller: I'm not sure

This is where in mind is screaming "Go to the nearest stop sign and look up at the little green sign on top! what does it say?!"

How can you drive down a road and not notice the name of it? Then to get a phone number off a sign that has a person's name RIGHT ABOVE IT! Really, is it that complicated?? My other favorite calls are the "I want to know how much a house on Main Street is" Yeah, I can't pull that information out of thin air when we have hundreds of houses for sale.

So if you're ever in the market for a house, take note of who is selling the house and the address of the house. Simple things in life, make it go a little smoother.

Going going GONE!!

I love craig's list! It's better than Ebay by far. My lovely mother finally learned to use a computer properly (i.e. upload pictures and make an account on a website) so we posted my brother old bed set and sold it with in 30 min! It was crazy how fast! My mom wanted to sell it for a low rate of $150 but I told her to go for $200 so if they haggle, you can settle at $150. To our luck the buyer took the $200 price with out question! Then we sold my old honda that no longer works nor looks too pretty. Price is still pending but we had 7 offers in 2 hrs! Next up on the craig's list line is a gas stove and old text books! Media law any one?? Hmm... I wonder what else I could sell??
