What could $44.44 possibly be?

By
Real Estate Services

Well, I took it as a sign.  A sign of good luck.  Must make the best of the good luck....

I stopped for gas the other night.  On empty again, but at least the price has dropped below $3.00 a gallon.  I think it was $2.79.... Anyway - An empty tank and the pump  stops at $44.44.Money

A far cry from the high of $68 something to fill up....

SOOOOO - I decide to stop inside the station and drop off some Green Bay Packers game Schedules.  I know the attendant, he even waived hello as I was filling up.

So inside I went, "please get me a $5 Powerball ticket" I say, and oh by the way - "may I leave these schedules here for the customers... and would you like one?"

Do you know where this story is going?

Well, I wish I could say the Powerball ticket was a winner - NOT!  (At least not millions...)

The attendant, Mahendra says "oh, you are a Realtor?"

I proudly answer "why, yes".

Now he knows I live a few blocks away.  He knows my husband, and my golden retriever.... he just didn't know I was a "secret" agent.  LOL

Mahendra says "I am looking for a house",  after a 30 minute discussion.... I have

ONE new customer.  WHoopeee!  We will be looking in January.... when he returns from a month visit back home.

Here's the tip: It pays to NOT be a secret agent.  I try to not be a secret agent, I wear my name tag and a RE/MAX pin, but I still need to say ....

I HELP PEOPLE BUY AND SELL HOMES....

and as I learned from Brian Buffini:  "oh, by the way"... if you were buying or selling a home, or had a friend or family member who was, do you have a Realtor you would refer them to?

Sales 101, I still need a reminder!

JL - Great idea, an announcement at parties.  I'll have to see if I have enough guts to pull that one off!

Lizette - So true, I meet people standing in lines at the stores.  I talk real estate everywhere!
