I was sitting at the table right behind yours at the Century 21 Kickoff event at the Congress Centre in Toronto yesterday. You were sitting with a group of agents from your brokerage. I'm not sure what number your table was, but mine was 95. You looked like a prosperous bunch.
That was an excellent meal, the salad was particularly nice, wasn't it? Everthing was so well presented. It must have taken quite a bit of organizing to pull a meal like that off for about (I'm guesstimating now) 1000 agents.
The award ceremony was quite nice too. I was just along for the ride at that poin,t as I wasn't going to win any awards, definitely not for my sales figures anyway. At three weeks in with Century 21, I certainly don't qualify for a lifetime achievement award or anything like that. I enjoyed watching everyone gleefully motoring up to the stage with the music pumping, just like they had won an Oscar.
I noticed that you won a Masters Diamond Award for sales. Very nice. Congratulations. What is that, I think it's like $190,000 to $349,000 in commissions for an agent (Don't quote me on that though). It's a lot of hard work. Very well done. The applause and plaudits were well earned.
You remember who I am? When you looked around to see if anyone noticed that you had slipped your table's centre piece vase into your handy large tote bag I was the guy who's eye you caught. If my facial expression could have been translated into a sound, it would have been something like "eeeeeeeeeeee". I am that guy.
Bad form. I realize that times are tough, but all in all, I think you did quite well last year. With sales figures like yours, I'm sure you did well enough that you don't have to pinch vases from tables. I know you knew you were doing something shady, your sneaky expression spoke volumes.
You should probably update the image you use on your advertising as well sweetheart. I too occasionally mourn the passing of my youthful good looks, but I think I would be taking it a bit far if I still used photos from the 1990's.
Anyhow, now that you know who I am, if you know of anybody who is moving to the Quinte area, I'm never too busy for your referalls.
Note to the staff at the Toronto Congress Centre; If you need any information about a missing vase, I know where it is (unless it's already been given away as a house warming gift).
