I’m too busy slaying dragons to finish writing my next book, How to Be a Gig Economy Real Estate Agent, but I need to write. I mean, I NEED to. It’s cathartic. So, throughout the months, as time allows, I’ll update you on “As the World Turns” in real estate.
No, selling real estate is not just snagging a listing, putting it on the Multiple Listing Service, and waiting for the escrow company to deliver your commission. For instance, today I went to the mat with a rodent proofer who “with all due respect” argued with me about the sloppy job he did on the front porch of my client’s home. I prevailed.
It took a half-hour of arguing, drawing pictures for him, and sweat because I happened to be wearing black that day and the outside temp was 95 degrees. As he left, he remarked to my client, “Now I see why you kept saying wait till Cathy gets here. You brought in your strong arm.” I wear it proudly.
