What I learned in Real Estate this week...........The week after vacation edition!

What I learned in Real Estate this week...........The week after vacation edition!

Las week i was in Puerto Vallarta with my sweetie, loving life, sipping margaritas, enjoying the view & feeling footloose & fancy free.  Here's proof:

I got back to work this week, full speed ahead (is there any other speed in RE?) & this is what I learned this week:

  • ALWAYS have a back-up, you know someone to do your work for you while you are basking in the mexico sun.
  • If you are gonna go on vacation, make sure it is far, far away, you know, somewhere where you have spotty or really expensive internet & phone usage so you can truly forget EVERYTHING & enjoy yourself (see the first bullet).
  • Some agents watch their deals like their children.  Constant texts, emails & phone calls DAILY to make sure we are "still good" like we were an hour ago.
  • If there are sudden fires around your city, make sure the homes you have under contract weren't affected.
  • Short sale departments still have a long way to go as far as the left hand talking to the right, etc.
  • If a deal falls through it MAY suddenly come back to life, thank goodness.
  • Appraisers have a mind of their own, truly, truly, truly. 
  • Sometimes calling someones bluff works better than you think it will.
  • Being a Realtor takes alot out of your car, mine was happy to be on a break last week.

AND, my favorite lesson this week:

  • I LOVE and I mean LOVE, Mexico. 

The END.
