Warren County Ohio Real Estate News and Observations

Sous Chefs and Real Estate Agents

Yesterday was a quiet Thanksgiving for us.  Our relatives are all about 7 hours drive away and it's not practical every year to make the journey, so this year we stayed put with a dinner for two.

Liz is a very good cook, me?  My idea of cooking is "what do you want me to pick up on the way home?"!!

But I can help, so my role yesterday was to be the sous chef.  I sliced and prepped more celery, carrots and potatoes than I think I ever had in one day.  Ground pepper, measured salt, chopped Parsley, Rosemary and Thyme (wasn't that a Simon & Garfunkel song??), and the like.  Liz put it all together and when we were done we had a dinner of ham, stuffing, broccoli, carrot/yam puree, scalloped potatoes and pecan pie and it was all delicious!

Now what I do as a real estate agent is in some ways similar to being a sous chef!  I do a lot of prep work for our clients.   For sellers advice on how to get a home ready to sell, how to price, etc.  For buyers we're discussing what they can get for their dollar, where they want to live, factors both pro and con for what they want and how we're going to go about getting it for them.

Basically I'm gathering the ingredients of the real estate recipe and prepping them for a good experience for my clients.  My clients are the "head chefs", the ones I'm working to satisfy and provide great results for!  And when our sellers have a SOLD sign in their yard or my buyers have moved into a new home, I've done my job as the sous chef/real estate agent!
