business

This year, business has been going slower than a herd of turtles until about 10 days ago and now the phone is on fire. It's about danged time. I must confess I'd forgotten what it felt like to be putting a little money in the savings account.

Conversely, I inspected a $1.85mil condo in the residential portion of the Ritz-Carlton this morning. A former player for the Red Sox sold it to an unnamed overseas buyer. Mr. Unnamed Buyer's attorney set it up and told me that the buyer's name was confidential.

Boy, the other half really does live differently than the rest of us, huh?

Callers have been smoking the batteries on my company's cell phone lately. Only did a few inspections in January.

Jan was good. Feb was a stinker. Mar is coming alive. I had 6 jobs this week and have 3 booked for next. I could be busier, but I could slower too.

For me it's been consistently steady through most of the recession.

That's not saying much, 'cuz I won't do more than one a day. So, I get booked out days in advance and easily keep plugging in the blanks at the end of the queue. The only occasional ripple has been the friggin bank-owned properties. Every once in a while I'll get a flurry of them and they almost always cancel and reschedule at least once because some lazy bastard at a bank somewhere can't get off his or her ass and finish the paperwork by the date they promised they'd finish.

ONE TEAM - ONE FIGHT!!!

2010 was the best year on record since 1999. It has continued through 2011 so far. I think I had 15 condominium units this week. March is typically heavy on the condominium units. The folks from cold weather country want to get away to sunny Florida.

Neal;

Then do me a favor and stay in Bergen and refer your Morris inspections to me and Steve (see, I'm not greedy) ;)

I would be busy too if I was doing $99 full service inspections!! (Only kidding-glad someone is busy doing inspections, I am jealous).

Darren-thanks for not asking for the Essex County Inspections!

We're full price at $575 HTR. Steve, we're in Montclair 3 times a week. The 12,000 sq ft house i mentioned in the other thread is there. Great town, especially the Wellmont Theatre.

For me, Jan '11 was the best month ever. Feb leveled off a bit but March is kickin' pretty good so far. It's early to make a judgment but I'm on target for the best year since being in business.

John,

I am an AF reservist and got activation orders about a month or so ago. 1 May through February 2012. I will be visiting the lovely and scenic area of Afghanistan.

Thanks for serving Robert. The same as for all our brave service people, I wish you a safe return.
