Message to my clients...

Friday, July 13, 2012

First off, whoa, two posts in one day? What's gotten into me?
Second, beware, this is a bit of a rant session.

As we've discussed before, I wear many hats. Real Estate agent, wine glass painter, house cleaner (cleaning girl -cleaner - how in the hell do you say this?) I like all of my hats. I like to be my own boss.

Anyway... I have a little tip that I wish I could just pass along to ALL of my sellers & cleaning clients out there. DO THIS!

If you have a million things in your shower, please Do. This. Now. Not only will it make your shower a lot easier to get in & out of without knocking over one of your 9385734 bottles, toys, bars of soap... But your shower will look wayyy less cluttered AND be soo much easier to clean. Just FYI.

Really, I mean, it's pretty easy to hint to sellers what they need to work on to make thier home show better... but try asking your cleaning clients to do something to make it easier for you to clean? Hm. I don't think that would go over so well. Do you really need to hold on to 47 pretty much empty bottles of body wash though? Really? So I'm thinking, maybe I will just print out this picture, then hang it up on the freshly cleaned shower as a hint and then maybe they would just maybe do it?

One other message to my cleaning clients... I would like them to know that 99% of the time, I can tell what they had for dinner the night (or week) before by the various food stains I find on the table, island, counters, etc. This week it was chocolate ice cream & I'm going to guess lasagna. That or spaghetti.

Now I'm on a roll. Also, could you please be sure to give your pets food & water? I go to one house every week, and they have the sweetest dog ever. She's huge, maybe some kind of Mastif, but I swear whenever I get there, she has NO water in her bowl. Did I mention that her water bowl is about the right size for a freaking chiuaua/chiwawa? Rat dog. So when I arrive, I fill it up. While I'm there, I fill it up again. Then when I leave, I play with this sweet dog, give her five treats a treat & fill up her water yet again. Sometimes I even fill up her empty food bowl with water so it will last longer. I'm thinking about leaving a large water bowl as a gift along with my "hint" I leave in the shower.

Shewww... for the most part I swear I love most of my clients. Geez louise. Sometimes a girls just gotta put it out there!

I wish all realtors told their clients this! Quite a few of the houses we looked at had clutter EVERYWHERE! Needless to say, we walked out of those houses unimpressed.

My last roommate was a bit of a hoarder. The bathroom was filled with a million different things. I lived there for 11 months and there was a half empty conditioner that was still in the shower when I left. When in doubt, throw it out!
