Quarterbacks, Football and Otherwise



“927-5201 “



Brett Favre at the line of scrimmage?

Try, the listing agent (me) imparting to the Buyer the various house codes and contact information at the closing (my client, the Seller, was out-of-town, and had pre-signed).

Those numbers and codes (not the real numbers) correspond to: the code for the lockbox (left on the front door); the security system code; the Seller’s new home number; their handyman’s number (scheduled to do a repair, post-closing); and the code for the garage pad.

As I always like to say, “the listing agent is the quarterback of the deal.”
