    The Greatest Christmas Story Ever Told (Real Estate Version)

    Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house
    Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse

    My signs were all out and brochure boxes loaded
    The ad copy in and the lock boxes coded.

    I just wrote an offer with that 1 perfect buyer
    eeghads its so low…they say they won’t go any higher

    So I call up my seller with the not so good news
    And they agree to meet with me…what have they got to lose

    So we sit at the table & I do what I do best
    Crunch numbers, talk deadlines and give it a rest

    So the sellers agree and get ready to sign
    And then they exclaim… “We’ve got an equity line!”

    More crunching & digging to find extra money
    The sellers are smiling…but this really isn’t funny

    3 months on the market with nary a showing
    Now I have an offer and not sure how its going

    And that’s when they ask what I don’t want to hear
    “Can you cut your commission?” and they crack open a beer

    What I need is a Martini while relaxing by a pool
    I reply that “I can’t…it’s a company rule”

    So I ring up the buyer right there on the spot
    I need to know if they’ll consider a counter or not

    To my surprise they speak up, ‘we’ve got $5000 more’
    If its signed tonight we’ll accept it, but absolutely no more.

    So back to sellers for signatures on the line
    They him & they haw & then finally sign

    I email the buyer and get their reply
    Accepted as countered, Now I’m flying high

    The sellers are happy as I walk out the door
    It’s just 9pm, I can stop at the store

    I pick up some goodies for my own Christmas treat
    Head home to chill out and put up my feet.

    When I drive up to my house it is such a great sight
    All lit up for the holidays with the lights oh so bright

    A smile crosses my face as I thought it just might
    “Merry Christmas to All and to All a Good Night”!
