Please don't fry an egg on my head!
Here I am in Texas. "Whew". I love showing properties but this is definitely the most trying time of the year.
AND, WHEN YOU'RE TRYING TO SELL A HOUSE IN 100 DEGREES?
It's just plain annoying. The other day I was showing a lovely couple from Houston a few lake houses. Wonderful conversation, strong buyers, lovely people and me. It was going pretty well even though it was a cool 108 degrees in the sun. Not to mention the humidity!
Wow, and they think we have it easy! I drive a lake that is 450 miles around and I try to know and show it all. I had come to the last showing of about 6 houses and we found this quite by accident. I called the number on the sign and it was a FSBO Realtor and she was glad to give me her code.
It was a gorgeous entryway with an enclosed foyer in brick and the lock box was right where she said it was on the doorknob. She mentioned to me when I called that the last folks had a bit of a problem with the key box and there was a trick to the opening of the box. I listened carefully to her instructions and began to manipulate the box. Now, keep in mind, the sun was bearing down on me, a brick wall blocked any hint of a breeze and it was 108 degrees in the sun! I fumbled with the code but I began to GLISTEN.
Yeah, yeah, that's a nice way of saying I began pouring sweat like a piglet. I was sweating so much that my glasses were wet with perspiration and I had to take them off to wipe them to see the numbers. I was feeling faint so I dropped my glasses and my cell with the other Realtor on the line and was suddenly feeling no more discomfort!
"Oh my gosh, Debra are you okay?" she asked?"
Then all I remember is waking up with her wiping my face with a cool washcloth. Am I embarrassed? What do you think? Luckily the other Realtor was still on the line, gave them instructions on how to get the door opened and they saved me with the swab of a cool washcloth. After getting up a bit humbled they offered to drive me back to the office. I took them up on it.
I missed the whole showing although they told me the stairs were a bit too steep for them. I wonder what it really was?
Was it the stairs or the fact you could have fried an egg on their Realtors forehead at the front door?
MAYBE I CAN SELL THEM SOMETHING IN THE FALL?
I DON'T RECOMMEND NAPPING DURING SHOWINGS!
Later in the rain~Deb
