Chan's Magical Soup (2011 December challenge day 9 )

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with Riverbend Realty, Cape Girardeau, MO

Chilled to the bone five times today, I closed out the day by bringing home some House Special Soup from Chan's Restaurant. After she took my take-out order, Kiki brought me hot tea to drink while I waited. My family and I love Chan's, and it is our Saturday lunch destination every weekend, so Kiki and Niki (wife and husband proprietors) were somewhat taken aback when I showed up on Friday evening.

Not to worry, though, I will be back tomorrow with the family. Tonight, I needed the soup and hot tea when I finally wrapped up the day's business after 8:30 pm. I sometimes refer to it as "Chan's Magical Soup," while invoking its magic to ward off illness or to chase away illness. Tonight is going to be the coldest night of the season, and today was windy with falling temperatures.

My daughter and I are trying to get four new pre-list foreclosures through the cash for keys (in lieu of eviction), rekey, property preservation, valuation and pre-marketing processes. Today, I took inside and outside photos of three cold houses, as well as finalizing a cash for keys transaction, doing an occupancy check, and meeting a vendor who was preparing a trashout bid. Two additional trips outside involved meeting an insurance adjuster and, finally, attending a closing!

A very busy December will mean a comfortable number of January listings to see me through the coldest month of the new year.

Thanks to Chan's Magical Soup and a warm pair of pj's, I'm now toasty!

PS: Chan's is located at 1159 N. Kingshighway in Cape Girardeau. The soup I refer to in this blog is their House Special Soup. I know that I should have taken a photo to post with this blog, but I admit to eating the evidence...

If you are looking for a foreclosure in Cape Girardeau, Perry, N. Scott, or Bollinger counties, I am the region's most experienced REO agent. As the area's ONLY Fannie Mae direct listing agent, I list more foreclosure properties than any other agent in this MLS. I am among the few local agents approved to both list and sell HUD properties. Give me a call if you are looking for help with the purchase of a foreclosure property.

If you want up-to-the-minute real estate information, the only way to get it is to have an agent set you up on auto-notify with immediate delivery. Your listing information will come directly from MLS only when it comes from an MLS member. You willl not have to wait for the information to roll to those other websites, and you will not have to check multiple sources. It's free, so why not give me a chance to help you in your search?


NO OTHER SOURCE is as complete or as fast as your local REALTOR®’s source. This is not just an advertisement for REALTORS®--it is information about how the system really works.

Liz, I am glad Chan's was there for you.  Nothing like hot soup on a cold, windy day!

Liz,

Hot tea, I should have thought of that. I’m headed to make some. Glad to see you are busy and have magical soup to ward off the weather. Enjoy!

Liz good to have a place that can provide comfort food.  Sounds like you had a rather  busy day, and hot tea and soup was a great way to warm up.

Marge~ I know it isn't so in Phoenix, but around here, it isn't Christmas until the cold, windy stuff arrives. Merry Christmas!

David~ I'm glad I gave you a good idea!

Jennifer~ If I were bored, I'd surely be broke! Here's to a busy real estate season for all of us!
