Today I received a phone call from a guy from ReMax – as a courtesy he said (how thoughtful is that?) – to tell me in a nicely written script what the house next door sold for quite some time ago. Yesterday, another real estate guy came to my door. I asked these guys how they would feel if real estate people kept calling them at home. The guy who just called said, “pestered and disturbed?” Bingo. The guy yesterday rang the bell while I was practicing fiddle. I confess he got me going in a full blown enough is enough already type rant, which must have been pretty loud because one of the neighbours from across the street walked over to check out the action.
I get that Long Branch has been the Klondike Gold Rush over the past couple years, with lots of people chasing after the greasy buck. However the odds we are going to cash out and sell our home to some bottom-feeding, lot-splitting builder are less than zero. So please stop calling. Now. Take me off your list.
