Q: What is the most interesting thing that happened during an open house you hosted?
A:  I had a professional athlete, who I shall not name, come out to one of my open houses about 4 years ago. Sadly, I didn’t recongize him so how I kept my cool worked in my favor. Then, once the open house slowed, I looked up his name and sure enough, he was in the National League!

It was raining so hard that day that water was pooling on the front walkway, but that didn’t stop this motivated buyer. That was the first house I sold off an Open House!

She asked why he did that  and he answered that his brother went swimming, why couldn’t he? I kept towels in the car. They did not buy this house, but did buy another one with me!
