Pay it Forward...House-sitting While Carpets are Cleaned!!

Pay it Forward...House Sitting While Carpets are Cleaned.

Today I met White Knight Steamer at the townhouse of a soon to be new listing.  The seller has already moved and needed to get carpets cleaned before I list her townhouse.  I met Danny at 1pm and he finished around 4pm.

I took paperwork with me to keep me busy plus it was a great time to make some calls.

With the carpet cleaned I now need to get the cleaning service in and then it should be ready to be placed on the market.

Hi Judith,

I'll be pet sitting for friends of mine and house sitting for clients this holiday so I'll be paying-it-forward too.

I just know you make good use of your time and getting to know vendors is important. Many people depend on us to make referrals for service providers. A good Realtor® like yourself, will not refer someone they don't know. They will refer the very best because of first hand experience. Paying-it-foward has its own rewards.

What a great photo too! That man looks proud to do the job. Anyone who takes pride in their work is worthy of a referral.

Hi Judith, that's the way to do it, no better time for phone calls than when you are house sitting, doing open houses, attending home inspections or otherwise wait on someone else to complete their jobs.  Have a great weekend and all the best with your new listing!

Judith, there are so many little things that we do to help our clients, none of which are part of the licensing requirements

Hi Judith! It sounds like White Knight Steamer does a great job! It was nice of you to be there for the owner to let them in - as Realtors, we have to do many extra things for our clients. Hope you get a quick sale!

Hi Patricia, you will be doing a great pay it forward by pet sitting as well as house sitting.  I hope you have some time for yourself this week-end as well.

I always ask for Danny for he does the best job and it does show.

Thank you for your kind words of support!!

Hi Ed, you are so correct with that feedback.  It is interesting to hear people discuss and describe what we do.  They have no idea.  Happy holiday week-end.

Judith - proof again that you always go the extra mile for your clients!  Taking the paperwork with you helped pass the time as well as getting something done.  Nice job!
