Please take this stroll with Jill through Forest Hill!
One of my jobs as a Realtor is to visit as many Agent Open Houses as possible. This is the only way a good agent can be educated about the product and available inventory in the city. And believe me when I tell you, this can be a challenging feat to accomplish each day. Why? Because I have clients I serve all over the city and sometimes I have to travel from the Beach to High Park and many spots in between.
I see about 10 properties a day, and the window for these Agent Open Houses is often only 1 and 1/2 hours. So knowing the circuitous routes in the city, as well as, knowing where major construction is NOT a major deterrent to getting there has become an acquired skill. I often tell people when they ask me what I do is that I DRIVE FOR A LIVING!
But here is the wonderful part of my day….no matter what season. I LOVE nature and I always have my iphone with me. I cannot resist screeching to a halt, jumping out of my car and taking shots of Toronto’s “Ordinary Miracles”. There is beauty all around us, all the time. We just have to take the time to listen, observe, smell, taste and touch! Oh, and then we have to jump back in the car and get to our appointed rounds before they close the doors!
In this instance, I took some time out from “building my empire” and took an hour stroll through Forest Hill before getting back to the hot listings I send out to my clients. I wanted to share with you what the world looks like to me on any given day. I hope you enjoy the video as much as I enjoyed my walk.
PS: If you (or someone you know), are looking for a Realtor who cares MORE about focusing on you, your concerns, goals and the successful purchase or sale of YOUR unique home, than they care about their volume of transactions and awards, please let me know the best way for me to connect, as I would love to offer my highly personal service. Contrary to that old expression, not only IS this business, but it IS personal! And, please, I encourage you to ask me any questions you may have about this post. I value your input and appreciate the time you took to read it.
