Oopsie…

Well I was rockin and rollin putting my signs out this evening and I found the perfect spot to slap one of my signs on and BAM…..I ran out of staples 🙂 So I only got 12 signs out tonite……dummy….I should have more staples in my care…..next time I’ll know better.

As much as I can’t stand putting up bandit signs I must say that it is good to be back! I’ve missed real estate…….I’m ready to make some cash now. Initially I wanted to get my first deal by the end of this month and that still would be awesome and I’m still gonna work hard til the end of this month but I really would feel comfortable if I could get a deal by the end of next month.

Well I’m off to re-fill my stapler and then off to bed. Oh do you guys know about that sign stapler? Brandon and Joe (Kathy’s 17 yr. old and 9 yr. old) bought it for me for either xmas one year or my birthday…and omg I love it. That’s how I’m hanging up my signs until I get more (remember, I only have horizontal fluting type signs left, so no wire stakes for me.) Just banging ’em up on poles with the sign stapler. If ya are still using wooden stakes or using ladders or what have you to put up your signs….well this lil sign stapler will safe you much time and many headaches. I think it’s only like $99 or you could go to Lowe’s or Home Depot and put your own together for way cheaper. But it’s a must have for folks putting out bandit signs, in my opinion.

Okey dokey pokeys I’m out like trout. Nitey nite.

Take me off of your list!

Ahhhh so it’s the day after xmas. I had a great couple of days with family and friends (not to mention I spent all day with Andrew today and most of Christmas Eve too hehehe Have I mentioned I love that kid? lol)

Well I promised myself that for 8 hours tomorrow I would do NOTHING BUT REAL ESTATE since I’ve been slacking so much lately.

I’ll work on some more postcards and signs. Oh and my babydoll did buy me a sign stapler for christmas…well it was signed from Brandon and Joe (her 2 sons) and Riley, Spencer and Blade (my 3 cats) but none of those 5 guys has a job so I’m fairly certain Kathy bought it lmao It still hasn’t arrived yet, it’s in the mail…so can’t put out any kinds of those signs tomorrow.

OH and hey guess what? I got a response from one of my postcards. This was the message I got: “We sold our house already, please take us off of your mailing list. Thanks.” Hey at least SOMEONE is reading my postcards huh? I’m definitely gonna try out Eileen’s letters. Maybe I’ll send them out tomorrow……..(btw, thanks again Eileen for sending them to me!)

Oh and one more person called me today about a house for sale, but he lives in Maryland. I keep a couple of Maryland calls because Oxford, where Kathy lives and where I put a bunch of signs up, is right on the Maryland border………so I’ll give the guy a yell to see what’s up with his place.

Plus, someone wanted to show my Sub2 property today……I’ll give him a call tomorrow to see how that went….I sooo wish someone would buy that thing YESTERDAY. I’m paying a 3% commission with a $1000 selling bonus for a full price offer that settles by 1/31/08.

I don’t drink much at ALL (seriously, I’m not even kidding) but I think I’m going to go get a glass of wine…..all of this holiday stuff and screaming kid stuff…well I need it. lol Don’t get me wrong though, I had an AWESOME past few days…….seriously….but a glass of wine once in a while does me good. And my wine, well if you are a REAL wine drinker you soooo would not like my wine, it tastes almost like grape juice lol It’s by Clover Hill and it’s called Concord. (I think it’s only up this way where I live though….but that’s ok by me…just didn’t want ya’ll going out looking for this grape juice tasting wine lol)

Ok signing off……I’m gonna try to work this Oxford deal this week/next week and to also try to get a new deal signed up for next month! Wooohooo!
