Where's my PHONE????
Last Thursday I had an appointment with a favorite client of mine.
She is a very busy Mom with a 6 month and a 2 year old. She is very considerate of others and we make house hunting plans a couple of weeks out. This is what happened last Thursday.
The two year old is in pre school and the 6 month looks at $1M homes with us,
she really is good and loves every home we go in, she can't make up her mind. Anyway, we were looking at homes in East Dallas
, the whole area is going through re gentrification and we had 3 homes to look at on the same street, Lake Circle. We were leaving one home and going to another that was French Country and their were 8 workman, painting, sawing, etc. it was a mess and we quickly went through it, the baby did not like the style, so off we go to the Marvelous Mediterranean, when my client in a gasp with the baby in tow, says...
"Terry, I have lost my phone, can you help me find it?"
We had driven a few houses up and had to backtrack to the other two houses,
I was hoping it was not in the house we had just been in with all the workmen. It wasn't, I found it in the grass on the sidewalk that is why we didn't hear it drop. My client was so relieved!
She said, "Thank you, thank you"
and we got back in her car and drove up the block, maybe 1 minute
had passed and she said "My phone is gone again"
we both looked at each and she said "I think I have a hole in my pocket"
and I said "Do you think you can put it in your other pocket and make sure that one doesn't have a hole in it." She said "let me check?" We laughed! We drove back where we put the baby in and sure enough it was on the grass. Thank Goodness! We all need our cell phones!
Now I did say, "Do you think your husband can buy you a new pair of pants for Christmas to go with your $1M home, we both had a good time with that one.
Realtors have many funny stories about house hunting and they are all different, everything about real estate is problem solving, including a lost mobile along the way.
