a wonderful Worthingview neighbor
I had an open house yesterday in Worthingview, on a home that is not my listing.
A nice neighbor chiseled the ice off the "walkway" for the open house.
I usually put out open house signs early Sunday morning for the open house scheduled in the afternoon.
Once last year (early in 2010) I had an open house scheduled (on the Real Living HER Open House List ) and I canceled it Sunday morning because the snow was NOT shoveled. It was not my listing.
I had my listing on Snowmass Road in Worthingview open in January 2011 and shoveled the driveway for the open house. It was my listing... It was Sunday morning... I was happy to see the driveway and walkway on Snowmass cleared Sunday as we had a showing scheduled Saturday.
Anyway I had an open house yesterday in Worthingview, it was not my listing. A neighbor came over and chipped the ice off the front walk. We'd brought a snow shovel over in the morning but it was useless with the thick block of ice that was the front walkway. When I made it back for the Sunday afternoon open house I had "Ice Melt" but even generously pouring "Ice Melt" on the walkway the ice would have been melted by about 4:00 at an open house scheduled for 2:00 to 4:00.
Thank God for the wonderful neighbor of the Worthingview home who used the perfect shovel for chiseling through that ice.
In 2008 my friend Don in CT wrote Sellers: Time to Shovel that Snow
"Sellers, it's time to get out and shovel.
- Clear the steps.
- Clear the walkways.
- Clear a path around the perimeter of your home.
- Make sure the front entry is accessible and safe."
I want to thank the Worthingview resident for his help. Another neighbor on Amol Lane came by during the open house to see the house for a friend. She said the people on Amol Lane are like that.
Revolting Realtors - the Realtors revolting against open houses do not want to hold an open house and do not want other real estate agent to hold open houses...
I want to thank the Worthingview neighbor on Amol Lane. What a great guy!
The houses pictured ARE not for sale... the snow pictured is a snowfall in December 2010 not the icy stuff we had last week. Groundhog says we are going to have an early spring in 2011...
