I recently had a vacation of over 3 weeks in Portugal. When I returned I was so busy I didn't have time for jet lag. I got in at 11:00 p.m. with 24 hours of travel. The next day I had to book appointments to view house for a referral from Edmonton. I spent the day viewing houses up island as far as Duncan. That night I had to present 6 offers on a property my associate listed will I was away. After that I had to book appointments for the next day. By the end of the day I couldn't even remember my name. It went like that for the next 10 days. I finally got some time to write this blog. I need a holiday to recover from my holiday. As you can surmise real estate is still very active in Victoria. This is my 42nd year of selling real estate in Victoria. Yes I have seen it this busy before. This too will change and eventually we will get back to a normal market. Until then it is very frustrating to submit 3 offers for 3 different clients and have to compete. I lost all three opportunities. I hate losing.
