Doing Double Duty


Sunday is a pretty busy day for me...doing a live radio show, answering the phone after the show, scheduled showings and all the wonderful things we, as real estate agents, are involved with.

Took a new listing over the weekend and really wanted to get it into the MLS right away. I choose not to make my properties active until the photography is done.


So late Saturday evening, I sent  a text to my professional photographer checking on his availability.  Thank goodness he responded via text saying he had late Sunday morning free.

Since my show starts at noon, I though that would not work.

Plan B  a key was picked up, the camera man did the shoot and had a few dozen photos  for me by mid afternoon.

I was able to host my live radio show, retrieve the key, measure the rooms, blog about the new property,  post the photos and submit to the MLS.

Double duty is possible if you can accomplish two things at the same time!

It's wonderful you have a great team in place to help you get multiple things done at once! I'm sure this listing will have a "too late" sign before long!

Good gracious Margaret, I got tired just reading what your day was like.  Time to take a nap before the day starts.

We never ever start a listing without photography....and agents who do we think are missing the best part of the property's introduction to the market.

Sounds as though you enjoyed an action-filled day of progress. I really enjoy days like you described. Have a fun Tuesday!
