Exercising My Right to Talk About Real Estate

alavie-ladder.jpg       Because most people know that I’m a Realtor, I am always asked about the real estate market.  Some people are shy about asking because they think I might be tired of talking about the subject.  But I love to talk about real estate and can expound monotonously on the topic when given the opportunity!  No topic fascinates me more than the many facets of Gilroy and Morgan Hill real estate – just get me going and you’ll be looking for the “off switch”!

One place where I have a captured audience is my morning exercise boot camp class.  Real estate topics often come up there and I’ve been able to educate my fellow boot campers on short sales, foreclosures, loan modifications, as well as some of the screaming good deals that are on the market right now.  I try not to bore them too much or make any of them run the other way when they see me coming.  As a matter of fact, much of the time I’m gulping for air and can’t speak because I need that oxygen to just keep my lungs from exploding!

We’re a small group of women and have gotten to know each other in the wee hours of the morning as we do our push-ups, squats and lunges.  I really can’t think of a better way to start the day than boot camp.  Our boot camp is put on by a small company, AlaVie, that hosts boot camps in several Bay Area locations.  For me, exercising outside in the fresh air is the way to go.  I find going to the gym claustrophobic after becoming a boot camp regular.

So don’t be afraid to ask me about the real estate market – and if I gasp for air, I’m either doing crunches or it may be because I find the topic so exciting!
