Lake Arrowhead Homes For Sale & So Much More


NEVER know who'll you meet in this business....

Yesterday, I had floor time, but really wasn't expecting much business since this is Memorial Weekend. I was waiting for a client, however, to show up so I could show her a new listing our office has. While comes a nice couple wanting a little local real estate information.   The MR. gave me his name and e-address. He spelled out his last name; D-I-M-A-G-G-I-O.   I said, "Like Joe???"  He said YEP.  I thought he was pulling my leg and said so, since he loves to tease.. I glanced up at his wife and she nodded.  The nephew of Joe Dimaggio. All-be-darn!  Everyday is an experience in this business. 

 Who have you met. Any interesting people?

I have met several of the Miami Heat, Mike Tyson (I am not too proud of that one), Mariah Carey, Chris Evert, Jeff Gordon, Randy Moss, and a few more.  Very interesting people.  I am in Boca Raton where many celebrities live so I come across them quite frequently.

The stories you must have been able to get from him!  I have met several "celebrities" when I lived in Philadelphia, but I was quite honestly not very impressed with them.  Most of them thought they were something special just because they have a public persona.

I have much more respect for the average "Joe" who is in the trenches every day earning a living.

I've had the opportunity to meet one of our more famous restaurant owners here in Denver at one of my open houses. They were very friendly and invited me to the new restaurant. It's amazing who you can meet even at open houses.

I have met many famous people in this business.  But I certainly would tell anyone who that was in a blog article.  I never mention my clients' names without their written consent and I've never asked for their written consent.

I think confidentiality is extremely important in this business and I agree with Ardell about keeping names to ourselves unless they give permission otherwise.

David, Steven and Jennifer.  Thanks for commenting. Fun topic, isn't it?

Ardell and Mary: I totally agree about confidentiality in this, or any, business. BUT I didn't mention my client's name, only his uncle's name--and dead uncle at that.  WE, as a nation, are so afraid anymore to say anything.  We need to relax some... enjoy life a bit more.  My client happens to be very proud of his family name.  AND many members of his family, I bet, there are.

  Thanks for commenting.

I once had a client with a top position and could not even have his address in the application.They were looking for a years rental which I had advertised.. I handled it very well and when they moved , they wrote a very good letter of recommendation and sent to my broker.
