Nice surprise today

I had to go to work and leave Milo for a few hours today. I had an appointment at someone's house in town. As the owner was showing me through the home we happened up on playpen set up in the den with the cutest dog in it. Surprise, surprise! It was a 3 year old havanese. First one I've seen this close by. She was telling me how wonderful the breed is and how sweet her dog, who by the way was pole vaulting in his attempt to get out and play with us. What a jumper! I convinced her to let him out and he followed me around. I told her we'd have to have a play date. And how's this for really weird, she used the same groomer this time for her baby that I did -- small world after all.

How nice to run into someone with a hav. Hopefully you can set a time to let them play together. I have yet to run into anyone with a hav, only people who know someone who has one.

Missy,

I went over to the house to tell them the value of their home in today's market. It is not uncommon when owners have people coming through the house to put their pet somewhere safe and away, just in case the person coming in is afraid of dogs. I immediately told her to let him out, which she did.

It is exciting having another hav in town, and he's a sweetie.

Trish, yes and yes, 21 years for me. As for great business, right now I'd say challenging is a better word with the whole mortgage mess.

Hi Gerri and Trish,
It is always nice to run into another hav. I always get so excited to meet other havs, and most havs love other havs.

There are a lot of us realtors around here I think. For me, it has been 8 years. It seems like all of us are in the same boat right now. I work a new construction site exclusively, but have just given notice and plan to go back to residential resales. Wish me luck. Let's hope all the mortgage stuff gets worked out quickly!

Karen,

I'm a member of a great group of REALTORS all over the country and beyond and more of their markets than not are anywhere from not so hot to dismal right now. The one exception is a guy in Vancouver, who's market is still hot. New construction is tough many places now. Developers are giving away impressive things in addition to the house just to move the inventory. You might be better off in resales.
