As a new real estate agent in 1989, I was always looking for a house to hold open on weekends and would volunteer to hold any house open. An older & more experienced agent in my office was very (almost overly) anxious for me to hold open her new listing in East Silver Spring.   It was a cute Dutch Colonial Style house.  I was really excited about having it open and wondering why she did'nt want to do it herself.   This agent ALWAYS held her own listings open, especially if it was the first open for a brand new … (10 comments)
