Our first real storm of this year hit hard early Sunday evening and finished up by mid-morning on Monday. It was pretty nasty with high winds, drifting snow, poor visibility, and so on.
I woke up early Monday morning and turned on the radio to listen to the list of closures. Schools, universities, community centres, and some businesses were closed. Our offices were also closed.
Finally, after more than three hours of shoveling sidewalks, driveways and helping our neighbours dig themselves out I was now able to get out and go to the office.
When I pulled into the parking lot there were already six cars at the office. One sales rep was negotiating a deal with his buyers and sellers. Another rep was reviewing listings with their client, and yet another was writing up an offer. After I completed what I had to do I returned home to do some more shoveling.
Later Monday evening I was reviewing all the new listings posted to the MLS® for the day. I came across a listing where the listing sales representative obviously took exterior pictures of the house that very morning as evidence by the tracks in the 3-4 foot snowdrifts.
After thinking about the day’s events, all I could think was, KUDOS to all the hard working REALTORS® out there who don’t let a little Canadian snowstorm get in their way!!
