Memories...

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Realty Center

Hi everyone.  It has been a while since my last post and I thought I would borrow the office computer for a while to write a story about a memory. 

First, yes, I did say borrow the office computer.  I am very hard on all of the equipment that I own.  I drop my cell phone several times each week and wonder why people on the other end say that my voice keeps fading.  I just dropped my lap top at a clients home several nights ago, and wouldn't you know it, it didn't like that so it stopped working.   I apologized to it and said that it was an accident, but to no avail.  It wouldn't listen to me.

Now, I am faced with having no method of communication, no way to research properties or to see what the competition is doing.  But, it is what it is and we all move forward.  After all, it will be repaired within one month.  Ouch...

So here I am, writing a blog about memories.   The reason that I am doing so is because I really was feeling quite sorry for myself with the impending delay in communicating with others because of the fall.  But then I began thinking about my grandchild.  About how adorable she is and how happy I am to have her as my screen saver on my cell phone.  I then remembered, while looking at her photo, that I could attach most of the important sites to my phone and be able to be a part of the real world, despite the loss of the lap top.

Then it hit me.  We will get through this life despite ourselves and our opposition to change and to trials.  We are in the biggest trial of our Real Estate Lives right now, and to be quite honest, we are going to experience growing pains because of it.  Growth in our own attitude towards life.  Growth in our ability to cope.  Growth in the method of selling and listing homes.    And on-and-on it goes.  We will grow if we allow our self to.

The choice is ours.

Make it a great day and I'll see you at closing.

Nice post Larry,  When some bit of this fabulous technology goes in the tank we are pretty much dead in the water.
