Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: What Makes You Laugh??

What Makes You Laugh??

I've been told be someone, who will remain nameless, that I'm not "funny" when it comes to ActiveRain and my blog posts and that I don't laugh enough, at myself or at others. 

For you, Mr. Funnyman, here are some things that crack me up...

  • I laughed all the way to the bank when my first buyer here in Austin allotted my largest commission check ever because another agent didn't return his emails.
  • I laughed when I received a referral from an agent who contacted three Austin Realtors, and I was the only one who responded back.
  • I laughed pretty hard when I received a referral a few weeks ago from an agent that told me, "Honestly, you weren't the first call, but the "other person" never returned my calls or emails."
  • I laughed a little harder when I responded to an email that was meant to go to another agent, but the buyer liked that I responded back promptly letting them know I wasn't the "other person" and they're working with me now.
  • I laughed hysterically when I received a voicemail last month from someone that said, "Jason, I've called a couple of times and also emailed you, and you have yet to return my messages.  I just want to sell my house, so please call me!!" I'll be listing that house after the Holidays.

See, I'm a funny funny person and I see humor in lots of things. 

What makes you laugh??

That's the way to laugh --- all the way to the bank!

If laughter is the best medicine, then I suppose laughing all the way to the bank is the best self medicating you can do.

Keep it up!

Loved your post.  Very funny - plus a strong reminder to those out there who think they are too busy to return phone calls - big mistake!!

Donna, I lov the last example! 

I am about to take a listing with a seller who called me third.  The first agent didn't return his call.  The second agent asked if she could call him back because she was eating lunch...

Now those things would definately put a smile on my face! Love it! Thanks for sharing!

Hummmm, my two jack russell terriers make me laugh! They are hilarious! (I think one even smokes cigarettes)!

Hi Donna... You are definitely Austin Real Estate's own version of Tina Fey!

Posted by Steve Shatsky about 10 years ago

Donna - I think you are funny (especially on this post)!! AND you make some GREAT points - don't forget that we are in the people business....not the house business!!  Nice post!

Posted by Jeanna Martinez (RE/MAX Access) about 10 years ago

ROFL!!!  If I didn't know any better, I'd guess it was Greg that said the "not funny" comment!  My personal opinion, this IS funny!  LOL

Sincerely,

Kathleen

that's not funny . . . ;-)

Posted by Peter Nikic (Broad & Bailey Realty LLC) about 10 years ago

Donna, I don't know what that other person is talking about - I think you're pretty funny.  This post made me LOL.

Posted by Susan Brown (Keller Williams NE, Kingwood Texas (Humble & Atascocita too)) about 10 years ago

Peter, You're funny!!

Susan, *smile* thanks!

This made me laugh.  My first thought was Greg Nino and looks like I was right.  Funny and interesting post.  Apparently agents in the laid back city of Austin are an advantage for you!

Shirley, Very much so.  I am fast paced and high energy, and others are going to miss the boat!

Douglas, I'm glad I could make you laugh!  This post makes me laugh every time I even think about reading it!!
