    I remember when listings were 1 page and offers were 2 pages.  I am so glad that we are now in paperless offices - as offers are now around 15 pages and listing contracts have so many addendums that it takes an hour to fill everything out - and files, at close of escrow are 1"-2" thick and are given to clients on a CD at close.  Let's hear it for all the attorneys out there who need to make a living!  Agents now a days are forced to spend so much time on paperwork that we sometimes forget to deal directly with our clients and their fear and apprehensions during the process.  Sometimes you really need to stand back and look at the whole picture and not the daily minutia of papers.  Dealing directly with clients and helping them get what they want is why most of us got into this business in the first place and is the fun part of same.  It's a people business first and that is where the joy is!  Don't postpone joy everybody.  And, if you are a client, don't hesitate to ask all those questions that are bothering you at the front, and back, of your mind.  That's what we really are there for - not pencil pushing, though that is necessary in todays litigious society!
