We Need A Song !

We need a Real Estate song like

“I’m getting married in the morning”!

We have nothing to sing the night before closing.

Are there any creative members out there?

 

 

 Piano towels

 

Watching and helping new buyers through the excitement and the turbulence of finding the perfect home is like finding that perfect partner, planning the big event and then there is the big day before!

 

 

Let's not forget those few minor details that have to be addressed. 

We negotiated a great deal for special first-time buyers and there was a real rush getting to closing in just thirty days. We found the perfect house before it was listed and met the seller's terms for a fast settlement.

 

Here are just a few small “minor” details the night before our real estate consummation :

 

"Where is the invoice showing the radon mediation has been done,

tested and paid for? "

AND

 "What do mean the seller is not coming to closing? "

AND

  " The wired funds have NOT been received!"

 AND

 "We don't have the lender's package yet! "

 

The settlement is at 11 AM!!

 

 

That's just one transaction. 

What song to sing the day before closing?

 

We need a song.

 

By the way, the closing went off at 11 Am!

Congratulations!!

Margaret Rome

Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland This might be a good topic for a monthly challenge.

Joseph Domino 480-390-6011  Good idea. Let's ask the contest goddess  Debe Maxwell, CRS about this!

Great idea, Margaret. I suggest "Wasting Away in Margaritaville." But that's just me...

Posted by Gwen Banta (Sotheby's International Realty) about 1 year ago

I'm lacking that kind of creativity, but I'm sure SOMEONE here in the Rain must have it.

Bring on the song!

Posted by Marte Cliff, Your real estate writer (Marte Cliff Copywriting) about 1 year ago

Hi Margaret - while I am not a "member" there are many creative Rainers.  Maybe a contest/challenge to stir up interest? Where's Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland plus that show and those songs that suddenly come to life?

Good morning Margaret. This is great, funny and probably doable as well.

Posted by Sheila Anderson, The Real Estate Whisperer Who Listens 732-715-1133 (Referral Group Incorporated) about 1 year ago

During the pre-settlement rush, I'm singing "it's all gonna be okay" over and over and over and over ... in my head. The morning of I always wish my clients "a happy closing day". That sounds like a great title for a song.

Gwen Banta Thanks for playing along.

Marte Cliff This could be fun. We must have a few members that would have fun doing this.

Good afternoon Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland - lots of drama here but all has ended well.  Hope someone submits a song.  Maybe there is an Active Rain contest here.

Posted by Grant Schneider, Your Coach Helping You Create Successful Outcomes (Performance Development Strategies) about 1 year ago

Grant Schneider You and several others have suggested this as a contest.

It would be nice to have a real estate anthem.  However, I'm not a song writer.

Sheila Anderson Would love to see the AR members take this on.

Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland This is a very funny idea. Organizers have written up a few, although I'd have to go on quite a hunt to find them. And of course there's "Let It Go. (um, "Let it Snow.")"

Posted by Lauren Williams, CPO, CVO, Professional Organizer: Puget Sound homes (Casual Uncluttering LLC) about 1 year ago

Love this idea Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland ! Note to Debe Maxwell, CRS great idea for contest!

Posted by Anna Banana Kruchten Arizona's Top Banana!, 602-380-4886 (HomeSmart Real Estate BR030809000) about 1 year ago

We definitely do need a song.  Which song however, escapes me!

Posted by Myrl Jeffcoat, Greater Sacramento Real Estate Agent (GreatWest Realty) about 1 year ago

Lauren Williams, CPO Sounds appropriate! Let it GO!

Home on the Range
Oh, give me a home where the buffalo roam
And the deer and the antelope play,
Where seldom is heard, a discouraging word
And the skies are not cloudy all day.

Sung by Roy Rogers on YouTube  Home on the Range

Posted by Jerry Lucas, Mobile Notary Colorado Springs, CO Notary Training (ABC Legal Docs LLC) about 1 year ago

Jerry Lucas  Are you willing to write some new lyrics?

Myrl Jeffcoat This group should be able to put at least one together.

Every morning on my way to the office I play " Allstar " by smashmouth. Every single day. It puts me in a great frame of mind. 

Posted by Rick Gehrke (Re/Max Executives) about 1 year ago

Rick Gehrke every day? Time for a new RE song...any ideas?

Posted by Margaret Rome Baltimore 410-530-2400, Sell Your Home With Margaret Rome ( HomeRome Realty 410-530-2400) about 1 year ago

Cute idea, and should be a contest. Long ago, I did one, although, because it was a Christmas closing, it is too holiday oriented to make it work as an all around closing song. I wonder if I can even find it. Haha. Oh well, better use of time might be to think of a new one. ;)

The following link is my even day wake up song. Simply copy and paste the link in your browser, turn up the sound and get ready for Show Time! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=syIm5MHG4O4&t=16s.

My odd day song link is, http://www.nashcountrydaily.com/2016/09/20/watch-new-forever-country-music-video-with-george-strait-dolly-parton-willie-nelson-carrie-underwood-more/ 

During the day and evening, I'm listening to my Pandora Thumbprint Station with music from all genres but only the best of my favorite artists and songs. Music keeps us young and exciting, so, I agree you've got to have a song or a slew of songs.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD Get it together for a holiday song contest.

Kimo Jarrett Eye of the tiger is a great way to start any day.

Terrific forever video for any and all country fans.
