The Many Guises of Loyalty
Q: How many Jewish grandmothers does it take to change a light bulb?
A: None. They’d rather sit in the dark.
So, I finally found out why I was passed over (thematic pun, anyone?) for a listing recently (doesn’t happen to me that often, but no one bats 1,000%).
Years ago, the homeowner had referred a Buyer to the other agent.
Make that, someone who she thought was a Buyer.
After the agent showed the acquaintance homes for six months, the would-be Buyer . . . didn’t.
Feeling guilty about that, the homeowner hired the agent when it came time to sell her home, years later.
