The Sweet Sound of a Ringing Phone

With today being a legal holiday, our office is closed.

Nonetheless, I made the decision to come in and get some work done. I seem to be more productive when I'm at the office versus working at home, and with us being closed, I knew the interruptions would be minimal.

I think I got here around 9:00, and the phones have been going CRAZY!! Four hours of steady calls. Sweet way to start the new year and the sort of interruption I would take any day.

Seems there is a renewed sense of optimism this year -- a feeling that things are going to make a turn for the better.

I'm glad I decided to work from the closed office today.  I was able to finish up my 2012 business plan, make some calls to a few sellers, send market updates to a couple other sellers, and update my 2012 budget. Quite a productive day.

And the sound of a ringing phone can do amazing things for one's attitude and optimism. Here's to an outstanding 2012 -- for all of us!

Mary -- Hope all went well with your showings and buyer!!

Than -- Have been hearing from a lot of agents that their cell phones have been busy. I think we're heading into a great year!

Janis -- As long as your phone keeps ringing -- all is good. The best to you this year!

Peggy, it seems that I'm able to get more work done when the office is quiet.  I'm approaching this year very optimistically...its been busy forever it seems and it's not letting up even now when it should be a little slower.

Hey, I've been through Grafton on one of my lost weekends with my buddies when we headed for Green Bay or Shawano....love Wisconsin...as for the "Pack"...well you know how a Chicago boy feels about that.
