We are in Need of Listings

We are in Need of Listings
My main concern this morning was to get the last one of the five closing files to the finish line, and fortunately we made it before there would've been a long delay on it which would've pushed us into next week. While doing our final walk-thru, and as I'd suspected, there were things left behind in the garage which had my buyer a little angered, a … continue reading

Hours of Intermittent Reflecting

Hours of Intermittent Reflecting
If there was ever a recent day at office I was happy to see come to an end, I'd say today was at the top of the list because of the two back-to-back closings I had which both ended up having a soft landing. Fortunately I had the opportunity to visit with the buyer of the first one, and after listening for a few minutes, I could tell he was the perf … continue reading

She Continued to Remain Resolute

She Continued to Remain Resolute
As I expected, today was one of those yo-yo days were I was continually working at something associated with the five files which we've had scheduled to close this week. Fortunately we managed to get two of the five closed today, and there'll be two more tomorrow, and the last one being on Wednesday which got us under the wire of Thanksgiving and t … continue reading

The Cure for a Sore Spirit

The Cure for a Sore Spirit
My goodness! When is this wind going to stop blowing? I can't remember which Western State it is that's considered the windiest, but after these many days of annoying wind, I think the climatologists had better take another look at the number of windy days we experience on a yearly basis. This climate change is likely the culprit which comes as no … continue reading

Our Population has Dropped Again

Our Population has Dropped Again
Thank goodness the wind finally subsided which offered us an absolutely stunning mid-November day. While out this afternoon, I glanced at the outdoor temps and found it near the fifty degree mark. Let's hope this warming trend continues on thru Thanksgiving weekend.Early this morning I dropped off a little gift to one of my dear ones and stayed … continue reading

A Complimenting Culinary Combination

A Complimenting Culinary Combination
When hearing yesterday our northwest wind was going to stop in the night, I was expecting it to be calm today. Well, that didn't happen after finding it only changed directions and blowing that cold air back on us from the south. Yes, this has been one yell-of-a windy November. As much as I was hoping for clear skies last night, just so I could see … continue reading

A Chronic Worry-wart About Pipes

A Chronic Worry-wart About Pipes
You can bet yours truly was up and out early again due my having to make sure everything was readied for today's closings. Before the crack of dawn I was out picking up signs and removing lock boxes, and believe you me, the cold wind that was blowing had my hands nearly frozen each and every time I grabbed those metal signs and lock boxes. I certai … continue reading

A Little Howling at the Beaver

A Little Howling at the Beaver
I was up and out earlier this morning, and the reason being my need to get some sold signs picked up, a vacant home checked on, and another trip to the gas station for a fill-up. I dare say it's been a long while since I've had to pay so much for a tank of gas, but of course what isn't higher in price since this pandemic began?By the time I arr … continue reading

It was Her Tip

It was Her Tip
A whirl-wind day came and went, and by the time I called it quits, it was already dark outside. Oh how I dislike arriving at work in the dark, and then leaving after sundown.  Oh well, we're approaching the winter solstice and much desk work to get completed, so I just put my big boy pants on and continue ploughing thru it. On the positive side, t … continue reading

Going Postal on Her Mortgage Broker

Going Postal on Her Mortgage Broker
It was more than a typical Monday considering I had two closings to attend, as well as all the other first business day of the week phone calls and emails which had me hopping. The phones actually started ringing before the hour of eight which normally doesn't happen except when I'm expecting an early call. There were also a number of follow-ups I … continue reading

Positive Comments about Mr. Sayles’ Post

Positive Comments about Mr. Sayles’ Post
With it being another Sunday morning, my first duty was to get myself washed of all the temporal gunk which had built up in my soul/spirit over this past week, and believe me, I had a great deal to get scrubbed out, which is why I was in my contemplative corner considerably longer than normal. In the very old days, people would have their Saturday … continue reading

Snow’s back on our Menu

Snow’s back on our Menu
Another chilly-gray day arrived again, and it looks like tomorrow's going to be a clone of today. As much as I normally despise the month of November, I'm very thankful we haven't had any snow accumulation thus far, which will help to make this winter seem all the shorter. Not so many months ago, I mentioned how soon the Christmas Season will be up … continue reading
