I’ll Take That as a “No”

“Minnesota Nice” plays out in a lot of funny ways in real estate.

Like at one of my open houses this weekend.

I greeted one woman at the front door, directed her to the literature and disclosures on the dining room table, and invited her to look around.

Ten minutes later, as she was leaving, I asked her what she thought.

“Very nice, lots of space,” she answered. “Let me go get my husband” (he was parked in front with their dog).

As I talked to another open house visitor, I watched out of the corner of my eye as they promptly drove off.
