You Might Be A Real Estate Agent...

Jeff Foxworthy's "...you might be a red-neck" routine is hilarious!  Let's have some fun with our profession.

Here's a start:

1)     If you fill up your gas tank in the morning and your gas gauge is tilting towards "E" my noon...you might be a real estate agent.

2)     If you come home from work and your dinner has been sitting on the table cold for 6 hours...you might be a real estate agent.

3)     If you know what CMA, BPO, CRS, GRI, SRES, ERC, NAR, ABR, e-PRO, LA, BA (did I forget any?) stand for...you might be a real estate agent.

4)     If you're driving down the street with your cell phone on your shoulder, your palm pilot in your left hand, your stylus in your right hand, and you're steering with your knees...you might be a real estate agent.

5)     If you're out to eat at a fancy restaurant and your cell phone rings and you answer it...you might be a real estate agent.

6)     If when you're out showing houses, you decide to impress your clients by taking them by your house and when pulling up to it they notice you still have the wheels on it...you might be a red-neck and a real estate agent.

Come on my fellow rainers...you can do better than these. 

Let's have some fun!

Love number 4.  I had a bus driver cracking up at me doing the same, not long ago.  Driving, on the phone, holding a bowl of bow tie pasta from Bahama Breeze take out  in the left hand and chopsticks in the right - they didn't give me silverware.  I had chop sticks in the console.

You missed CNHS (cerifified new home specialist) &

PITA (pain in the ass) Come on, you know realtors with that designation.

You Might be  a Realtor  (in Florida) when....

You realize the manager of McDonalds is making MORE money than you

You take out an equity line of credit on your house to hold you over until the first sale.

You leave dinner on the table to show a house on a call sign response...

You answer your cell phone during a sale meeting

You offer to ride with ANYONE in the office to save on gas for caravans

You see how much allowance your kids have in the piggy bank for postcard farming...

Your "side" business is a lemonade stand!

And lastly...you stand outside of Walmart handing out your business cards during Black Friday! (Because you can't afford to shop!)

If you work for tow months and the day before payday the mortgage broker tells you the deal cant close so you dont get paid you might be a realtor.

PMA...Positive Mental Attitude

You must add CIPS ~ Certified International Property Specialist to your list.

I like Jay's wheels.  Not bad for a redneck!  :)

If the managers of all the car washes in town know you by name, you might be a real estate agent.

and you forgot DREI... Distinguished Real Estate Instructor; and if you teach Real Estate Farms and Acreage you get a DREIEIO...

If you're month has been slow and you're caught eating hot dogs at Costco, you might be a real estate agent...

Scott

Posted by Scott Gormley (Oak Valley Mortgage-California Home Loans and Refinancing) over 13 years ago

If you can't afford the hot dog at Costco and you go on MLS tours for the food (In order of quality), you might be a real estate agent....

And the grand finale....

If you go on MLS tour and pocket food for the family's dinner you might be a real estate agent...

Posted by Scott Gormley (Oak Valley Mortgage-California Home Loans and Refinancing) over 13 years ago

I guess it is really true.......RE agents and free food really do go together.  I am probably more of a Redneck then a RE agent.  :)

You might be a Realtor if your wife has ever said, "Come move these real estate signs so I can take a bath!"

You might be a Realtor if you have every episode of Trading Spaces, Home Improvement, Flip This House, Design on a Dime, etc. on tape.

You might be a Realtor if your kids take a real estate sign to show and tell. (or your business card)

You might be a Realtor if you ever named a child after a repeat client.

Posted by Rob Lang, Local Expert in Lawrence Kansas Real Estate Homes (At Home Kansas) over 13 years ago

Very good, Rob!

I have found that the signs have a tendency to scratch the tub, then I have to refer to "Flip This House" to fix it.

Thanks,

Lucky

If your Bluetooth has been surgically attached to your ear...

If you write up every offer (below list price) to the flower vendor at the local Farmer's Market...

If every conversation starts off with, "You won't believe the day I've had" and it's 10:30AM...

 About 8 months late to this party.....

When your spouse asks you to  "list "our" house so he can see/talk you more often---you might be a real estate agent.

#4 is me except that I don't use the stylus..If you can drive the car with your knee, you might be a real estate agent.

If you never make a dinner appointment, on time, you may be a real estate agent.

If you are never without your camera, to shoot photos for AR, you might be a real estate agent.

If you carry a tablet pc instead of a handbag, you may be a real estate agent.

If your favorite button on the Treo is the "ignore" button, you may be a real estate agent.

If a telemarketer phones and you ask if they want to buy/sell a house, you might be a real estate agent.
