There are no light days in real estate.

Real Estate Agent with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Metro Brokers

A little down time would be nice!Any real estate agent can tell you that the best way to ignite some business is to set aside some down time for watching a game or going to a family event.

I am not certain how the cosmic forces that control the universe know or even care why I elect to wind down for a few hours, I have just come to understand that the odds that my restful bliss will be interrupted are nearly certain.

And even though we are not doing anything as urgent as delivering babies or responding to intrusion alarms, many aspects of the job are time-sensitive and demand our immediate attention.

All of us in the profession understand that it comes with the territory. And we are always glad to be busy.

But I often feel at times that a little peace and quiet would be nice!

Each aspect of this industry is critical in families lives. It doesn't matter where we are and what we are doing, we are always helping others. I've met clients in places that many others wouldn't expect to. It all starts with a conversation in any place we're at.

You hit the nail on the head, Richard. Especially when you plan a vacation. Murphy's Law!

Have a nice day,

Jeff

Richard:

The photo looks like a very serene place to be.  Yes, it never fails.  When we have set aside time to relax or attend a family event someone calls us with an urgent request.  And don't even think about vacation.  Every vacation I have taken has been proceeded by calls from people who finally decided to sell or buy.  Yikes.

Going on vacation soon. Somewhere very peaceful. Yes there are times when you need to recharge.  We ALL need it.

Richard, you're so right about this! If I plan to watch the Lions game, something comes up. Grocery store? Phone starts ringing.
