Watch Out for the Cow Patties!

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with Star View Real Estate CO: II100035296

Hi, I see you are staring at my boots.  Yeah…they are kind of worn, but they still look good with a skirt.   Lol.    You Comfy, worn bootssee….I’m a Realtor and these boots have covered a lot of miles helping buyers find their dream property. They’ve dodged a lot of cow patties, they’ve walked through many barns and stables, they’ve helped me jump over cattle guards and creeks.  They’ve been relegated to the front porch while I’ve been inside the homes.  They’ve been covered with dew while I was trying to get the best photographs of properties – which is frequently VERY early in the morning.   

You know, I bought these boots after I sold a house with a few acres within four months that other Realtor’s thought would end up in a foreclosure rather than at a closing.  So, these boots are pretty special.  Granted, it is just more than the boots.   I’ve been fortunate to work with sellers that trusted my advice.  In many ways, sellers and their Realtor are working as partners. 

Cow PattiesWhy do I wear my boots with a skirt?  Well, I always try to dress like the professional that I am.  There have been times in the past that I’ve been teaching real estate classes, doing financial consultingor showing property in town where boots and jeans really aren’t appropriate.  But, I will bend over backwards to help sellers get their homes sold.  If that means meeting a buyer’s Realtor out a property on short notice to point out the property lines, the septic tank, or whatever, I’ll do what I need to.  Stepping in a cow patty in boots is a LOT better than stepping in a cow patty in sandles or dress shoes.  I choose boots.  

I’m Sondra Meyer with Century 21 Curbow Realty.   You know, enthusiasm is contagious.  If you or a friend are planning to sell or buy a country property....I highly recommend you choose someone that knows and loves country properties.     Even if they are wearing a trusty pair of old boots. 


P.S.  I can't remember the last time that I actually, inadvertently stepped in a cow patty.  However, the memory of the mushy stuff going between my toes is enough to remind me to put on my boots every single time I walk out in a pasture...just in case.

Sondra - love your story and I'm sure you look pretty awesome in a dress and your worn boots - it's a look onto it's own and it's practical. Ruining an expensive pair of shoes just to look good is, well, in my opinion, just stupid and you're anything but! Have a great day!
