Ken's Naperville Real Estate Blog : March 2008

Blogging my day away...

Yesterday, I wrote how it was a great day to buy a house here in Naperville, Illinois.  It was cool by late March standards, but sunny with no wind.  I don't think temperature matters too much, but I feel the sun really buts people in a real estate mood.  And I had a good real estate day yesteday but...

Today I really blogged most of the day away.  I look at the clock.  6:00 PM.  The second basketball game is just rapping up.  Romero won the golf tournament.  But where did my day go???

The weather today was grey and wet.  As my wife would say, "Her real estate indicator was very low." 

Sure, not every day will be filled with appointments.  Catching up on emails and blogging with my new friend Active Rain was important. 

But boy, we just went on a walk around our neighborhood.  That was the first time I left the house, unless you count my "trip" to the end of the driveway to get the Sunday paper.

I wrote a couple posts.  Commented a fair amount.  Read some good stories.

But where did my day go?

Tomorrow is another day.

What is your real estate "uniform"?

Just curious. Do you have a "uniform"? Personally, as an agent, I feel most comfortable in khakis/cords and a golf shirt/mock turtleneck. I also have a cool RE/MAX windbreaker type sweatshirt for cooler weather. I never wear a name tag… more

I'VE GOT GREAT FOR SALE SIGNS, BUT THEY ARE ALL IN MY GARAGE.
share
If a tree falls in the woods and no one is there to hear it, does it still make a sound? If a realtor has great signs, and they are all in his garage, does he still have a business? As I sit here at my little home in Naperville, my garage door is… more
