Attending to Listings

There are Realtors who’ll take a listing no matter how far afield is.

I’m not one of them.

Like Woody Allen’s line about 90% of life just being about showing up, a good chunk of doing a good job as a listing agent (representing Sellers) is simply being attentive.

And it’s a lot easier being attentive when your listings are 5 minutes away than 45 (or more).

So, I just spent a few minutes wiping down my one of my For Sale signs after the street sweepers covered it (and the attached “riders”) with “leaf debris” this morning.

Glamorous business, huh?
