When I see cars I knock even if I'm told there is no one home. No car in the driveway of that house I showed today. Today I was busy chatting with my clients and looking back as I unlocked the door. There were no hand rails on the steps so I was paying attention to her getting up the steps alright when I finally turned around and stepped into the house. I came face to face with a lady with an arm full of laundry. I'm not sure who was the most scared. Perhaps it was her, but at least she didn't hurl the laundry at me. Perhaps it was me and fortunately when I opened my mouth to scream no sound came out.
I had made the appointment two weeks ago. I had confirmed the appointment yesterday. I had even gotten a call from the agent about the location of the lockbox today on my way to the house. The owner however did not call to tell the listing agent, Oh by the way, my relative will be there today until after we had come and gone from the house. Ooops.
So now that I've regained my witts, I'd like to offer this little reminder. If you have relatives, friends, housekeepers that will be popping by let them know if the house will be shown. And if you happen to know that someone will be at your house when you have a showing scheduled please tell the listing agent (or service if you have one) to make sure that gets passed on to the shwoing agent.
