Quinte, On. real estate agent: Labour Day 2010

Labour Day 2010

Being a top notch, high-flying real estate agent isn't always easy. There are certain sacrifices that have to be made to attain this lofty space that I occupy in the spectrum of human endeavour. 

Today is Labour Day, and when most people are getting a day away from work to celebrate the fruits of their labour, there are certain very important jobs that I must to to ensure that everything will work smoothly. Since it is said that a picure is worth a thousand words, I have decided to represent my tasks in a pictorial form, thus giving this short blog post the gravitas of a 6000+ word post.

I was warned that real estate wasn't going to be easy.

Does not look like much of a fun day to me. My office needs a clean too if you are in the area.

Hi Malcolm,

Well, maybe if you didn't drink so much and take so much time hiding the bottles you could be done quicker ;)

You're so right Malcolm... these photo's sure did say a lot!

It's a career that involves sacifices like missing many holiday activities, multi- duties and tasking, and dedication. It's not like I followed you're example. This year I had the unussual opportunity to avoid my office,home ofiice, and even my breifcase, entirely and without remorse.
