A day in the life of a full service Realtor!
Yesterday I just had to chuckle, day started with a frantic call from a seller of ours. To back up the story, she insisted when we listed her home for sale, that we use an electronic lock box, the kind that needs the key pad to open. In our area, the old tradional numeric push button lock boxes are more convenient to use. We told her, that it is nice, just in case you need to get in your house, we can give you the code and unlock the door! Well, this morning, she goes to her car, starts it, and forgot her coffee, she hops out of the car with it running, closes the door, and that is when she heard that sound. You know the one, your locks just engaged on the door! So, her car is locked with keys inside, and , yep you guessed it, the house keys are in the car as well, along with her cell phone! She finds a neighbor home, uses their phone to call, guees who! Her Realtor, Cory! So....I scoot over and unlock her home....She gets to work an hour late. She said she will ALWAYS listen to her Realtor now!
10AM Buyers of a home we sold a few months ago, shows up and says that our sellers lied on the disclosure statement. The buyers of this home moved up to a Chisago County acreage property from Minneapolis. Mrs. buyer whips out the disclosure statement and says "Look at line 70 'are you aware of any insect/animal/pest infestation', they checked no!" This home is gorgeous! I am thinking, I don't think there is any pest issues? Mr Buyer goes on too say, "Every evening right at sundown, the mosquitos come out for an hour, and we are forced to go inside!" I had to stifle my laugh when they said that, Living in Minneapolis, they are not used to mosquitos, I explained to them, that out here mosquitos are kind of the way it is for a few months. After more talk about their new home, we got the situation resolved, and they left happy, inviting my wife and I out for a bbq! Told them we would bring the bug spray!
It was a great day, with just a few funny wrinkles!
