It’s been almost three weeks since my last post, boy time flies. Always rockin and rolling, slinging real estate, taking care of the mansions up on Black Mtn, and performing the occasional handy-man service when needed. Love it, doing what I am meant to do. So what about some extra-curricular activities? As my kids would say, ‘Is there time for non-work fun as well?’
It just so happens this Friday in the 032 there will be a ‘Spooktacular’ hosted by Genesis Church in the parking-lot at the intersection of 32nd Street and Thunderbird on the south east corner. The ‘Spooktacular,’ consists of a trunk-or-treat, where all the dressed up kiddos can trick-or-treat from car to car. Most of the cars are decorated with some sort of Halloween theme, scary or fun. There will also be bouncy houses, games, face painting and pizza available. This is the fourth year Genesis has sponsored the event. They always do a great job and it should be a awesome again this year. Come enjoy. And if you are interested in some ‘work-fun’ there are still opportunities to volunteer. If you are interested in helping out in anyway contact Sarah at: firstname.lastname@example.org There is still room for more trunks too, so if you are feeling particularly spooky, get after it. Festivities run from 6 – 8. See you there. Click link(s) below for more information.
Lastly, had an interesting conversation the other day. I began working with a new client a couple weeks ago. It’s an older couple, real nice people. We just secured a contract on new home for them. In the coming week or so we will be listing their old house for sale. I have known them for a number of years, and I knew they had a relationship with another Realtor. No worries, really appreciate the business now. But I asked, “Why change Realtors? Why use me on these transactions?” The paraphrased response was this, ‘Well, we like our other Realtor fine, she works hard. Even throws parties for all her clients every few months. But we’re not real interested in that, we like that you are a ‘nuts and bolts’ kind of guy. You know houses well, and we like the way you navigate the transaction.” Hey, that’s pretty cool. “Thank you” I said, “of course I’m nuts.”
All kidding aside, it was really good feedback. I am a nuts and bolts guy. I have noticed that’s who I tend to attract as clients. Think it lends itself to good communication; “Speaking the same language” as they say. And really that’s how it should be. If someone likes the Realtor who entertains, that’s who they should work with. But if you want a no-bull approach, come find me. And hey, I entertain, “Budweisers in the garage.”
