I’ve been a realtor since the day I was twenty-one (38 years ago!! Crazy, I know!!) I work with my brother, Dickie, who is my boss. I never understood why my mother, Big Jean, made him the boss. I think she always loved him more than me just because he was the boy. Anyway, it’s not fair. It’s grossly unfair, actually, since I’m the only one who ever visits her and brings her hooch out there at the Final Rest where she’s living now. But never mind. I’m bigger than all of that. I won’t dwell on the negative.
Anyhoo, I decided to start this website because I like to be cutting edge and since this “Internet” thing is so new and hot I thought I’d beat the crowds and start up my own. Actually, I’m not quite sure how it all works but the way I do it is I dictate my thoughts to my daughter Harvest (here she is in a lighter moment)
who types into a computer, and my words bounce into space and back to anyone who wants to buy or sell a house in the Squamskootnocket area. Oh dear, Harvest is laughing at me. But this is nothing new:)
She’s telling me to focus…OK.
I started this website, or blog she tells me it’s called, to talk about what it’s really like to be a realtor, to share some true life stories, and to start my new column: “Ask Ginger!” which has already had a few installments! It’s just like Dear Abby but instead of asking me what you should do about your husband wearing baby clothes, you get to ask me why your house won’t sell, or why you haven’t heard from your realtor in weeks, or why, since your house is a castle, you can’t get $50,000 over asking. The usual questions.
Anyhoo, I’m just thrilled that Madonna took some time out of her busy yoga/reinvention/keeping up with the Brangelinas to create something as fun as this, aren’t you? I can’t wait to hear from all of you and answer any questions you may have, as well as of course continue to fill you in on the story of my life as well as slices-of-realtor-life as things happen.
