Working on "Christmas Day"

By
Real Estate Agent with Kim Wilbourn Realty

 Tangled Lights 

Was just curious how many people had to work today, and how many people to off from work?How many people took a break to spend the holidays with their family?

How many REALTORS® worked on "Christmas Day"? How many REALTORS® phone rang today? How many REALTORS® showed a house today? How many REALTORS® blogged today?

How many REALTORS® just sat on the couch and didn't do anything all day? How many REALTORS® went out of town to visit family members?

I of course spent time with my family! /image_store/uploads/6/9/8/9/2/ar119862585529896.png

I spent time with my family.

I blogged.

I got e-mail contacts from buyers and sent them to agents to help them.

I got no buyer calls today.

I got an agent call today. 

I got e-mail inquiries.

It was a good day.

Suppose that depends on what you classify as work... I posted, received comments and answered my AR friends but I consider that fun.  I'm sure many agents at larger family gatherings will touch on real estate conversations if the opportunity arises... We typically enjoy the work.... Scheduling showing seems a bit silly but under the right circumstances if someone at the party wanted a peek at an empty house on a lockbox it could happen....

Family is far away (Alabama as it happens!) was with them in spirit!

I also blogged...

Got a call from a long term buyer....way long term, and her name appropriately is Holly!

I cooked (am cooking rib roast)

And it snowed!  :  )

Family was in for the day, so I checked email and blogged a bit early this morning, again now that they've left.  I pulled my Closing for tomorrow together last night so that I COULD take today off to be with my family!  Merry Christmas!

I only wish SOMEONE had called to make me work.  Being a new agent, I would have left my family today just for the chance to work, work, work, show a house, any house.  However, I did spend quite a bit of time on ActiveRain and enjoyed every minute of it.  Spent some great time with my family.  Happy Holidays to All, and Happy New Year too.

No work today. I spent it with my family. I have noticed, though, that only 800 people were on activerain a few minutes ago and now more than 200 more are online. Are we getting bored?

Actually a lot of people worked today.  Health care workers, police and fireman, and don't forget about our military.

What do you consider working? I guess if sending out a Christmas Wishes E-mail to my address book and blogging for a while is work, than yes I worked.  I didn't make any calls and I didn't show any property but somehow, now matter your intentions, this business is always "on"  Still had a nice day, Got Up, Read for a While, took dog for a walk, ate breakfast, read some more, opened presents, cleaned up from breakfast, read some more, watched a movie, ate dinner, slept on sofa.  Typical day in our house, but quieter than usual. Hope you all had a wonderful holiday, I certainly enjoy reading your thoughts.

I spent time with my family.  I cooked breakfast and lunch.  I cleaned up wrapping paper and did laundry.  So I feel that I worked today:)  I also checked my e-mails often during the day.  No showings and no phone calls.  So everyone must have been working the same as I.

Having 2 teenagers and a 21 year old, the day was pretty quiet for mom.  I checked my e-mails - yes, received a few from clients and I responded.  Checked the blogs; spent ALOT of time on Active Rain trying to read things that I missed!  :)   No phone and no showings.  E-mailed Holiday wishes to old clients to remind them that I'm still here and working for them.
