Real Estate Conversations with Brenda: When Your Clients Move, Suggest an OPEN ME FIRST Box

When Your Clients Move, Suggest an OPEN ME FIRST Box

I have got to say that this is an excellent idea.  I am surprised that this beauty of a blog hasn't quite been featured as yet, but I just had to reblog it.  

As agents, anything we can tell our clients that will help them in their move is usually really appreciated.  When Ron says that we like the being there and getting there and not so much the middle part, he wasn't kidding.  I cannot stand the moving part lol!

An OPEN ME FIRST Box is a great idea that will help many clients out!  

Enjoy and thank you Ron for the terrific idea!

When Your Clients Move, Suggest an OPEN ME FIRST Box

Everyone HATES moving.  They like getting there and being there.  They rarely like the in between.  However, it can be less stressful if they take a few moments to think about what they will need between leaving here and living there! 

If you suggest that they pack an OPEN ME FIRST box, you could be the hero in their eyes.  This box needs to go either in the vehicle with them or last on the moving van.  




This box should have anything that makes life comfortable from the moment they arrive….sheets, bedding, the utensils to make a first meal, dishes and silver, and salt and pepper.  Also, towels and washcloths, shower curtains and soap.  Think picnic for food, and think camping for showers and bedding.



Make sure it has a hammer, screwdrivers (phillips and slot and maybe some vodka and orange juice, too!  LOL!)  If the electronics haven’t or won’t be available right away, perhaps a radio will fill in for a day, too.  Make sure all the charging stations are either in your luggage or this box, too. 


This is just some advice from someone who has been there, done that a couple dozen times.  And, I thank him for the great advice. 


Best, Ron

Hi Brenda Mullen.    Love this.  For me it would include a coffee pot!   Nothing like searching for that the next morning!
