THE SECOND STORY | October 29th, 2020

Fall back….and please VOTE (if you haven’t already)!

…this Saturday evening. Gain an hour of extra sleep!

I’m waiting for this weird time-changing thing to stop.

….These wooden leaves hang in my window near my front door.  Kind of makes it feel like fall, autumn, or whatever. 

I had the opportunity to call some of my colleagues yesterday, to be sure that they’ve voted… and specifically for Prop 19 (sponsored by the CA Assoc of Realtors).

This type of calling really rags on me, saying this and saying that…but because I’m involved with the local leadership of BayEast Associaton of Realtors, I made the leap into the vast unknown.

Much to my surprise, I was calling local agents, many of whom I’ve not seen for years. I had this pre-printed list and as I went through it I realized this was kinda made for me.

Yep, I get AI (artificial intelligence)…but this list was a wonderful way to either catch up with other agents and/or leave a message. They definitely were not COLD calls.

The chats were lovely, sometimes tear-jerking, and the conversations were a rich history of what the people are doing now…certainly during COVID. All of it was done electronically. And all of the folks I had spoken with had already voted and that included FOR Prop 19.

Be well, be safe, wear a mask, blah blah blah.

Best, marilyn   (Let me know if you have questions about the market…or if you have answers to my questions – like who’s gonna win our election, by how much, and where are you gonna move if your candidate doesn’t win?)

I wonder if there’s a black market for lots on the moon?
