Savvy Realtor chick Tells it Like it is...

By Erica McClenny | Broker in Raleigh, NC

Do Realtors get sick days?

It’s Monday morning and I feel awful.  I hate to admit it but I wish I had a 9-5 job today.  I’ve been battling the flu for 4 days now and I think the flu is winning!  I’m the worst at allowing myself a day off just to rest.  I feel guilty when I know home buyers have questions, my listings and sellers want answers and feedback on showings.  Ughh…I just want to hide and climb into bed.  Someone bring me some tea, my laptop, a few movies and maybe a popsicle or two.  I just want to take a nap and veg.


Anyone else know what this is like? 


Should Realtors have the option of telling clients this?  Sorry, I’m not coming into work today.  I’m sick, call me tomorrow!  Now don’t misunderstand me.  The Raleigh market is buzzing and homes are for sale everywhere, but I don’t want to be that person who passes the flu along to a first time home buyer or someone’s children.


I hope everyone else is enjoying this cool breezy Monday.  I’m going to suffer through, serve my buyers needs and find them some great deals, online!  I’ll email and answer calls but don’t expect to see me on the streets quite yet.  I’m going to make sure I’m feeling better before I jump into the car and show a house or two.
