Philadelphia, Bucks and Montgomery Counties Real Estate. Tips for home buyers, home sellers by Gita Bantwal,Realtor at Re/Max Centre Realtors.: I had to tell all my clients that I was going to the Eagles game

I had to tell all my clients that I was going to the Eagles game

I go to one Football game every year because it is difficult to plan my Sundays in advance. Also I prefer to watch on TV while hosting an open house for my clients or I have the radio on while driving with buyer clients.

I had to tell the following people:

My seller clients  in Warminster requested me to host an open house on sunday. I had to tell them I am going to the game.

Then my buyer clients who work some weekends called me and said they would like to see homes on Sunday . They had lost out on a bid recently so they wanted to see homes. I requested another agent to show them homes and fortunately the agent agreed.

Then another seller client had a showing on sunday and the seller wanted me  to be there to let the agnets in as it is a rented property and the tenants require it. The seller said she cannot be there on sunday and requested me and I had to tell her the same thing.

We have to work 7 days a week and even if we plan on taking a day off, that is the day that everyone needs us.

I am fortunate that all the above clients said they understand and they were not annoyed .

Growing up in Philly, I understand!  I also spent many years in Pittsburgh.  My husband is a Broncos fan.  There's a photo taken from my hot tub on the first day of football season last month.  Check it out.  it's the last photo in the blog.  You'll like it!
