I guess I shouldn't say never...
But they have to ask. They almost always do.
My Mom used to say it was "passive aggressive". I just say it works...
I just met a nice couple outside my home...
Sean and Pam.
I had seen them move in a few days prior.
Their moving van pulled up just after a tornado siren went off here in Naperville, Illinois.
I warned them of the threat, and we both retreated to the relative safety of our homes.
I saw them again today. I was chipping golf balls in my front yard and they pulled up in their car.
Since we are only a few houses apart, I walked over to say "Hi."
They seem like real nice people.
Just moved in from Pennsylvania, they were renting the home.
Interested in the Naperville school system, I think I reassured them they had moved to the right place.
I wanted them to feel welcome. I believe they did.
But I never mentioned what I did. They didn't ask...
Ahhhhhhhhhhhh. A mortal sin for a Realtor. At least the name badge wearing Realtors.
But there is another way...
I think volunteering that "I am a Realtor," is a bit cheesy.
We talked. I found out what Sean did. But I never mentioned my job.
They never asked. I know they were curious...
But I don't volunteer it.
We will see each other again. Soon...
I am very visible.
Today was not the day.
