Just another day at the office

Being an agent can be exciting, adventurous and unpredictable. Wait, maybe I’m thinking of an FBI agent. But sometimes I do get to experience some pretty cool things in my line of work. Yesterday was one of those days.

I could tell it was going to be a great day…winter snowstorm, great clients, easy inspection on a beautiful home in North Bend. When I arrived for the inspection, the snow had taken a little break and it was fairly clear out. The view of the mountains on a non-snow day looks like this:

Even though this was taken on an obviously gorgeous day, this is pretty much what the view from this home looks like. Not surprisingly, its one of the reasons my clients fell in love with the home. During the inspection I went out to my car to return some phone calls and catch up on some emails. During that time it began to snow again and when I went back inside my clients joked that the mountains had disappeared. Nope, they weren’t kidding. No mountains in sight:

Inspections are not what I’d consider high up on the fun list but this day was different. My clients and I were joking with the inspector and for the most part having a good time. The best part was hearing the inspector tell stories about some past inspections, most notably the one where he arrived a little early and caught the homeowner off guard. The homeowner claimed he was there to grab a few things and wanted the inspector to know that the very large gallon barrel was only used to water his plants in the planter boxes outside. The inspector immediately realized it was a grow house for marijuana and the best part of it all: the buyer was a cop. This story was followed up with the one where the inspector went into the crawl space to find a very interesting surprise. No, not rats. Not water damage. Not missing insulation. Nope, just a pile of bright, colorful…speedos?

If you’re looking to buy or sell a house and generally want to have a good time doing so, give me a call!

    I’m dying — speedos! Love it…

    I’ve got to know the reason for the pile of Speedos. Wife confiscating them from clueless husband? Husband sneaking into crawl space to don Speedo before pool rendezvous? A home remedy to repel pests? And not just pests, but sensible people, too…
