Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: Alyssa's First Real Estate Appt- She Sold Her First House!

Alyssa's First Real Estate Appt- She Sold Her First House!

Yesterday was a HUGE day for 19 day old Alyssa!  She had her very first real estate appointment and turned in her first contract.  It was a HUD home.  She even stayed patient as she went to Bank of America with the buyer to get an updated approval letter to submit with the package.  The loan officer didn't have authority to give us a new approval letter, and Alyssa kept her cool. 

We did get an approval letter, and then off to HUD to turn in the contract so we didn't have to Fed Ex it overnight, since it was just across the street.  Boy was she center of attention in the lobby working so hard!

So, if you're keeping score, Alyssa is now 20 days old and we have two new executed contracts in hand and two new listings.  Hopefully, we'll have two more listings from the appts last week, but won't know until next week.

She's been quite busy in her short life in the real estate world!

     

She's growing so fast!!

Congrats...I'm still unsure if I want my kids in the business!!

Rebecca, Thanks!  I won't work her "too" hard, but she does need to save up for that education as tuition goes up and up!

Mike, I don't really want her in the business either, but when a HUD bid gets accepted and you have to have original signatures in blue ink and turn it in within 2 business days, I didn't have enough notice to secure a babysitter and the buyer gave me permission to bring her.

My kids are older, so I am always impressed with "new" moms who continue to work their business and the baby isn't even a month old.  When my kids were babies, I couldn't even imagine it :).

Good for Alyssa, she is taking after her mother.

Alan, Thank you.

Chelle, I'm a workaholic, and I probably need a 12 step program for it.  I can't sit still for long, and since my Mother has voiced her wanting to be with her, I have the flexibility of taking her there if I need to work... though I tried really hard to take Nov and Dec off...

First contract already? I bet!!! She has a good teacher.

Maybe I can get my son to do her loans. LOL

Wow, Donna!  She's awfully cute.  But this could  be considered to be exploiting child labor!

Jay, She's definitely a joy... especially when she's sleeping!!

Chris, Yes, very busy... too busy... we've very "sore"!
