Who’s That Woman on the Cell Phone in Front of the Broker Open?

I noticed the woman on the cell phone in front of the broker open as I was looking for a parking space.

Hmm, I thought — must be a hot new listing if the agent is on the phone to a client even before she can get back to her office (if you ever see three agents on their cell phones in front of a broker open, the house is probably going to sell, quickly, in multiple offers).
Why outside?

It’s probably obvious, but it’s not such a great idea to be overheard telling your client, “Cancel your appointments this afternoon! You’ve got to see this place — it’s a steal!”

Unfortunately for the owner in this case, that’s not what was going on.

The person on the cell phone was a loan officer who was co-hosting the broker open, and couldn’t get good cell phone reception inside.
