A post by Amy Hahn  yesterday on socializing with fellow real estate professionals hit a chord with me especially as our local board has been doing just that for years.Once a month we have a planned social gathering at a local restaurant, (Lounge actually). There is always a law firm or lender  too anxious to host. It is usually attended by 30-40 strong of the board members and some associates, all enjoying the camaraderie of fellow agents. It makes for a good time and also the familiarity is great for those ties when we have to work together. Greater Waterbury Board of Realtors Network After WorkWednesday, May 25th   5 pm to 8 pm      1700 Watertown AvenueWaterbury Meet up with your business partnersand associates!Free while they last...Appetizers!!   It's always a great few hours and ...

Such was the case for our family this past week, as we celebrated the 70th wedding anniversary of my parents, Joseph and Laura Silva. They were married in Cambridge MA on April 27, 1946.

Whomever Shows Us the House Gets the ListingWhile sitting over a cup of coffee after showing a listing to an out of town, potential buyer, he offered that he had investment properties and had a couple in Waterbury CTthat he was selling. I suppose I got lucky, especially as this was not the person that I had started out with originally. Earlier in the week, a new buyer called me and asked to see this particular house. I set up the showing, and 10 minutes later the agent that had confirmed the showing call me and told me another potential buyer would call me to see that same house. She said the listing was too small for her to come from 20 miles away to show.  I thought why did you take the REO listing then?My original client went through the house, and would not be able to make it work f...
