Our office now has a Kiosk in Cottonwood Mall. Yep 14 of us Realtors pay to sit for a couple of hours 2 or 3 times a week to meet and greet ~ I've always enjoyed people watching...but who has time these days other then at a stoplight?
Well here I sit, nestled between Cobbs Bakery where I get to inhale the sweet aroma of freshly baked bread...
And the Flight Centre - where there's a huge map of the world and I get to fantasize where I would like to put a pushpin next.
And the rest of the time I get to talk about Real Estate - and who doesn't like to talk about Real Estate? The people come, and they pause and watch our Two Big Screen T.V.'s with scrolling images of our office listings.
They pause to talk about prices, market conditions, mortgages, and sometimes about 'their Realtor' who currently has their home for sale. Just to make sure they have their home priced right and doing everything they should :-)
Other then that...there are the babies in buggies, young love strolling hand in hand and oh did I tell you there's a Chatters Hair Salon across the way too? I get to watch the ladies walk in and then see the Big Reveal when they walk out! :-)
There's also the mother and teenage daughter who like to discuss household chores a decibel too loud. The guy that tells his girlfriend its ok to go into another shoe store :-) I watch the tanned and leggy 20 somethings and remember when. The guys with the 'black socks' and sandals......The elderly pushing their walkers in a painfully slow rhythm. The retiree who likes to tell me about his tools (no really) and how many air miles he's collected.
Fat, skinny, young, old, loud, silent....The Rhythm of the Mall.
And maybe...just maybe....one day I'll sell a house :-)
