Ah, it’s “hump day,” and that means we all need a break from our busy week.
I love sharing tips about everything from what to post on Facebook to how to use business cards. But if you knew me, you’d also know I have a great sense of humor.
To put it simply, I love to laugh!
So, why not take a break and see if you recognize yourself in these descriptions? You know you’re a Realtor® when…
…You Don’t Remember the Color of Your Passenger Seat
Let’s just own it – for most of us, the passenger seat is our desk more often than our desk is. So on any given day, we might have papers, solo cups, a package of leftover cookies, and who knows what else.
I mean, we’d clean it off, but it would be piled up again in five minutes, you know?
Honestly, you know it’s time to take action when the airbag detector says there’s a passenger over there. Until then, well… you know.
…You Tie Balloons to Open House Signs Instead of Eating Breakfast
I mean, priorities, right? Certainly there will be something to snack on at the open house.
Oh shoot, snacks. OK, one more stop for this morning.
See, aren’t you glad you skipped breakfast?
…You Know Exactly How Many Listings You Can Get to On ¼ Tank of Gas
Who has time to put gas in the car? Most Realtors® I know have their gas tank management down to a science. ¼ tank is just a reminder.
A reminder that I’ll ignore until the very. last. minute.
Hey, closing that deal for my buyer is worth it. #SorryNotSorry
…You Never Stop Working
Even when your kid is getting stitches at urgent care. I mean, you’re just in the waiting room anyway. Why not get a few more showings scheduled and make sure the escrow officer got your documentation?
When they call you back… in an hour… you’ll be there for the munchkin. No sweat.
…The Weekend is When You’re Busiest
To quote Bill Belichick, “No Days Off!”
Your answer to “What are you doing this weekend” is always the same. And frankly, you love it and wouldn’t have it any other way.
You can take Wednesday off. Friday through Sunday is prime time for real estate.
…You’re Super Grateful No One Counts Phone Minutes Anymore
Oh my goodness, the days when you had to pay a ton for minutes are over! Hallelujah! It’s great news since your minutes are always in the six-figure range.
Now you don’t pay for all those minutes. Instead, you pay for data. Fortunately, unlimited data is almost always an option.
Gotta stay connected!
…Your Keychain Looks Like an Ancient Monster From the Deep
Uh, anyone else have way. too. many. keys?
I mean, you’re not even an agent if you don’t have key rings connected to key rings connected to more key rings. The whole thing is outrageous. It’s a miracle you can even find the one you’re looking for!
Or maybe you don’t link them all together, you just keep the pile in a drawer in your office. It’s like the mythical “junk drawer,” but really it’s just filled to the brim with keys.
…Your Kids All Know Realtor®-Speak
It’s like a second language. If your five-year-old already knows what the MLS is and your kids play at showing houses instead of playing house… well, you’re obviously a pro.
And, you’re raising those kids right!
…Your Marketing Materials Are Always Ready
If you’re always quick on the draw with your business cards and on point with monthly farming postcards, you know you’re a Realtor®.
(And if either of those could use some help, you know who to call!)
