[photopress:legs.jpg,thumb,alignright]Talking about “covering for another agent” reminded me of my funniest ever sale of a house. I was getting my first ever leg waxing when the phone rang and an agent asked me to show a house to one of his buyer clients. He was “down the shore” (Jersey) with his family. I said no problem.
I rushed to the house to meet his clients straight from my first ever leg waxing appointment. Apparently I rushed the leg waxing lady so much that she didn’t get all of the wax off of my legs.
Jim’s buyer clients wanted to write an offer, so off to the office we went. It is no easy feat to write an offer for people you barely know, by the way. But I had them laughing so hard, that we got through it in great humor.
My legs kept sticking together! I crossed my legs, and when I tried to stand up to go to the copy machine, one of my legs was wax stuck on to my other leg and I couldn’t move. Except to hop on one leg. I had to take my hands and pull one leg off the other which really hurt! Writing the contract took forever, many addendums, etc… and I kept forgetting NOT to cross my legs! So every time I stood up to get something or go to the copy machine…the hilarious ripping my legs apart from one another kept repeating.
Finally I was so sore from ripping my legs apart, I just hopped around till we got finished, which had the buyers rolling on the floor. Honestly, if they were my clients, I probably would have been humiliated. But what the hell…they were Jim’s clients…I wasn’t getting paid a dime and the buyers were happy as pie. So, it’s just a funny memory and not an embarassing one.
Every single time Jim went on vacation and I covered for him, I sold a house for him. He decided to take vacations more often 🙂
