Pat Kennedy - Your Washington, DC Real Estate Connection


So, You Want a Little Whine With Your Blog?

 OK, I don't like to whine in a post.  So, this isn't a whine, it's me blogging my way out of a whine!

Evey year of my real estate career, I have had some transaction work over the Thanksgiving holidays - you know!  I give myself something extra to be thankful for.  It's a little tradition of mine.

So, the holiday isn't over just yet, and I do have a contract in counter that I wrote about two weeks ago.  And at least 3 out of the 4 principles are attorneys, and they're all incredibly busy.  

It took over a week to get a counter-offer from the seller, and he wasn't even in Sri-Lanka!

 In a few minutes, I'm leaving to pick up the counter-counter, try to find the listing agent, and take the next step.  And in all likelihood, that next step is going to be over a cliff and this will be a goner of a deal.

So, I need my special pick-me-up for just this type of occasion!  If you just click this little button, I can share it with you (sorry, guys, but I'm too tech-impaired to a U-Tube right on the screen.

Try it instead of whine!  It really, really works!  Instead of worrying about losing one deal, you'll be thinking about the wonderful place you're going to find for your favorite clients and how much better it will work for them!

I agree. Everything happens for a reason. One failed deal is merely the opportunity for another.

Hi Patricia,

That was very cute--it had me dancing in my seat!  My son is in a band and they have just cute a cd (hard rock).  Anyway, I mentioned how many people put them on utube and that he should try it.  If he ever does--I will share it with everyone.

I guess you have to turn a negative into a positive.

Good One! Just helped me stop my whining about my buyers that just lost out on the 4th House they've written an offer on!

How could not be happy after hearing that song! I love Disney, I know it isn't the Disney version, but it is just such a happy song. Put it on your car stereo and blast it all day!
