The Day and life of a Peterborough Realtor and Selwyn family man. Journal 1

It was kickstart morning for Royal Lepage Frank in Peterborough. Breakfast started at 8:15am. Meeting was at 9:00am with three speakers.  I decided that I would still get up at my regular time of 6am but I would bounce out of bed at that time not lay there in denial for 20 mins like I usually do. Susan got out of bed at 6:45am and woke me up. I did not set the fricken alarm right the night before. Shit. I started my day late.

I did get my daily Walk and Talk out for the morning. Here is the chat!

I have my set of rituals I do every single morning. I rushed my tasks and was in the shower by 7:45am. I asked the kids to get their butts in gear as Susan wanted to come to the meeting as well. That was a mistake. Immediately my oldest went into slow motion mode. I left the house at 8:15am and arrived at Peterborough Golf and Country Club about 20 mins later. Susan, after dealing with the kids did not arrive until shortly after 9am. Keith had us all beat and was at the meeting upon my arrival.

Our Kickstart meeting had three speakers and the one I wanted to hear the most from is a Lawyer named Mark Weisleder. Mark was presenting for an hour about the Cannabis ACT how it affects sales and leases. We also heard from TD’s Albert Breckenridge on market conditions. I find that topic dry but it is useful information. Our last speaker was Phil Hollander from Morris Real Estate Marketing. He spoke about, you guessed it, Real Estate Marketing.

From this meeting I went to the Northcrest to tape tomorrows Walk and Talk. It will be a hot topic that is for sure. I took a look at the outside of the arena. I know what it looks like in the inside but I never paid much attention to the outside. It just looks neglected right from the sign on.

Take a look at this crack on the side of the building. They tried to patch it but the whole wall is pulling apart.

Late the prior night we worked on putting together a deal on my lot that I had listed on Surgarbush Cres. We where able to satisfy both the buyer and seller. I drove out to Lakehurst and flipped my first signs to SOLD for 2019. Nice to get that done. 

After our kick start meeting Susan went back to the office for some more training offered by the Brokerage and to button up paperwork. I came home to work at the home office and wait to get the kids off the bus. I know why I love my office in Peterborough so much, it is hard to get on a roll of anything as the kids ask hundreds of questions every few minutes.

I then made dinner. lol Susan picked up the dinner and we quickly ate. We needed to be out of the house by 5:30pm to do a pickup and play a hockey game.

I got a few shirts made with the Royal Lepage logo. I purchased this in Lindsay at Kawartha Custom Vinyl. I had a RLP pin that I really liked but I lost the darn thing in the washing machine. My hope is to identify my profession when I am out and about.

My daughter played in the Ops arena in City of Kawartha Lakes for a night game. It is an old barn and the ice is awful. The puck literally does not slide on the ice. It sticks like carpet. The Ennismore Eagles and the Lindsay Linx played through the difficulty of the ice to have a wonderful game. Ennismore came out on top 3-2.
