A Big Brown Thank you to the buyer’s agent – who showed my Luxury Listing over the weekend. This Half a million dollar vacation homes is beautiful and spotless in every detail…but had a bit of an odor when showing it the other day.
It occurred to me the water was off, and the sink traps and toilet water had evaporated since the main supply had been shut off.
I excused myself to the buyer’s agent telling him discreetly I was going to turn the water on. Apparently this was taken as an all clear to allow a 5 year old boy to use the closest bath room. I emerged from the utility room in time to witness this child (pants around his ankles) step out of the bathroom…with a there’s no paper shrill coming out of his mouth. The mother immediately improvised and handed him a “ROLL” of paper towels.
No apologies were made as the goodbyes and thank you were exchanged, etiquette be dammed it’s not their house or their agents- listing. With my next appointment 10 minutes away… I sprung in to clean up mode. Only to discover the cherub left me a gift…looking back at me from the porcelain thrown was a lovely *finless brown trout – double wrapped in paper towels. The child seeking to be fastidious, had found a brand-new bar of soap under the sink and used the dibbling water to wash up…with the 600 threat count Egyptian towels (nothing but the best for the buyers children).
With three minutes to spare the next showing arrived…the wife said it smells like sewer in here…REALLY –I DIDN’T NOTICE.
Note to buyer’s leave the kids in the car…or risk a trip to camp closet - next time.
* Finless Brown Trout = POOP (in case you didn’t get the picture).
