Keys To Another Successful Settlement!

 

A  big Thank you to Margaret Rome for sharing this BRILLIANT idea about creating a master key template for your assorted keys! This principle can work for ALL keys keyand in any circumstance where you have different keys to keep track of!

Margaret is a top producer in the Baltimore, Maryland area and the author of the book "Real Estate The Right Rome Way."

She is showing us the way by connecting the dots in the Cosmic Cow Pie of real estate and doing it the Rome Way!

Thank you Margaret and this will be a great  Cosmic COW TIP to share world wide with your permission and credit :)  showing how to connect the dots the Rome Way!

 

At today's settlement, I found the "keys" to another successful settlement.

 

By now you know I have some creative sellers. Remember my seller with this   New Invention?

At today's  settlement I found the "keys" to another successful settlement. After the papers were signed, the checks cut and the funds wired, it was time for the exchange of the keys. The seller had a plastic bag filled with a bunch of keys... the main door key, garage key, mail key, the elevator key plus a few duplicates. We all have seen that familiar bag of keys and the "oh my how will I figure them out" look.

Here is the solution! My brilliant seller, I might add that most of my sellers are brilliant, made a drawing!  A simple drawing, tracing each key and then describing which key opens the front door, the lobby, the garage, the storage room and the mail box.

Had I seen the brilliance of my seller's "artwork" earlier,  I could have laminated this chart for the buyer's safe keeping. The more I think about it...we should all do this with our various assortment of keys. How simple would that be for our relatives, guests, children, housekeepers, babysitters and college kids coming home for break?

As a listing agent, this would be a good idea  if there are multiple keys to a property (front door, rear door, garage, furnace room, guest apartment) This could simplify the showings for us and for other agents.

At today's  settlement I found the "keys" to another successful settlement.

This brilliant, yet simple idea, came from my seller.

Here we were sitting in a settlement with  9 people and I had to take out my camera to photograph  this piece of notebook paper.

Thanks for the reblog and  all your special words.

Good Morning Carra, and Happy New Year. Clients are so strange with their keys. I just had a client come to finally get the mail box key for their condo purchase, and this client was an agent. Again Happy New Year

Terrific idea.  Now if I could just figure out what some of the extra keys' I seem to have in my possession belong to.
