The lights are ON -- but nobody's home!  When the literal occurs in Real Estate!!

The email came from a home owner who lives next to a home that's For Sale.

As an Exclusive Buyers Agent, it's not my listing -- it NEVER is my listing. 

The contact came due to my wonderful on-line presence: The take-away to some of the fun, vast and varied contacts I get in the scope of running my EBA Portland brokerage.

The email stated:

I live on west side, to this house and I cannot find a phone number to call.  Somebody turned the outside light on,(west side of house, garage side) and left it ON.  It shines in my bedroom and makes loud noise…please have somebody come back and turn it off.  Thank you! :)

The homeowner was so determined, they picked up the phone and called me to follow-up.

I explained that I wasn't the listing agent, but knew the property and offered to go out there and turn the light off, which I did.

All's well . . .

Thanks Carla!  I truly appreciate your help with this! :)

All in a day's work. 

If all of life's issues could be resolved so easily.

Carla, I can't believe there wasn't an office number on their sign! You did the right thing, though, as long as it was that close to you.

Carla-That was a neighborly thing to do. It's a good thing he got you as I don't think everyone would have handled it as you did.
