Adventures in Door Knocking - Chapter 17

“I know that technically I am not supposed to spend so much time chatting with one person, especially since he was not moving, but the ten or so minutes was totally worth it.  He needed me and I was glad I was there for him.” Find out why.... Read my blog.  

Adventures in Door Knocking Chapter 17


62 doors knocked 15 people qualified   15 business cards handed out    

51 minutes

I door knocked through a mail slot today and asked all five of my questions and slid a business card over too.  She might not have been ready to open her to me yet, but when she is ready to move, I am sure she will let me in. 

Interestingly enough quite a few people left their doors open this morning.  As if they were just waiting for me to arrive.  Everyone was very friendly.  Although I did run into a handful of people who did not speak English, again.  Attention anyone who speaks Chinese, Korean or Japanese and is a real estate agent or who is interested in pursuing the absolute best career in the world: There is a ton of business out there waiting for you, and I would be happy to train you, whether you have twenty years in the business or you are just starting out.  Call me!

This morning I heard two very sad stories.  The first person that I spoke with just lost his father.  He was not moving but he appreciated me stopping by.  He said ever since his father past away, he has been lonely and it nice to see a pretty, happy face.  He was such a nice man.

The second man let me know that his neighbor, who he referred to as his “dear friend” just past away from Parkinson’s disease.  He shared with me that his lady friend and him were both widows and ever since both their significant others had passed, they developed a very close bond.  He went on tell me about what a wonderful person she was and even brought a picture of her to the door. 


I know that technically I am not supposed to spend so much time chatting with one person, especially since he was not moving, but the ten or so minutes was totally worth it.  He needed me and I was glad I was there for him.  I did give him my card as he said the apartment was vacant but he also let me know that her kids are now fighting over the estate.  Oh how sad! Perhaps, when they iron everything out, I can help them out.  After all I did graduate from PS 169, IS 25 and Bayside High School, thus I am very familiar with the neighborhood and this home is zoned for all of these schools. 

As I’ve said before life changing events, like a person’s death often means someone might need the services of a Realtor.  Helping someone through a difficult situation such as the loss of a loved one and working with them to sell a property requires a special type of person; a person with patience, understanding and dedication who is familiar with the market and can make the transition with as little inconvenience as possible, as quick as possible and for top dollar.  I would be happy to provide you with a list of my past clients who would confirm that I am this person.
