Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse

My signs were all out and brochure boxes loaded
The ad copy in and the lock boxes coded.

I just wrote an offer with that 1 perfect buyer
eeghads its so low…they say they won’t go any higher

So I call up my seller with the not so good news
And they agree to meet with me…what have they got to lose

So we sit at the table & I do what I do best
Crunch numbers, talk deadlines and give it a rest

So the sellers agree and get ready to sign
And then they exclaim… “We’ve got an equity line!”

More crunching & digging to find extra money
The sellers are smiling…but this really isn’t funny

3 months on the market with nary a showing
Now I have an offer and not sure how its going

And that’s when they ask what I don’t want to hear
“Can you cut your commission?” and they crack open a beer

What I need is a Martini while relaxing by a pool
I reply that “I can’t…it’s a company rule”

So I ring up the buyer right there on the spot
I need to know if they’ll consider a counter or not

To my surprise they speak up, ‘we’ve got $5000 more’
If its signed tonight we’ll accept it, but absolutely no more.

So back to sellers for signatures on the line
They him & they haw & then finally sign

I email the buyer and get their reply
Accepted as countered, Now I’m flying high

The sellers are happy as I walk out the door
It’s just 9pm, I can stop at the store

I pick up some goodies for my own Christmas treat
Head home to chill out and put up my feet.

When I drive up to my house it is such a great sight
All lit up for the holidays with the lights oh so bright

A smile crosses my face as I thought it just might
“Merry Christmas to All and to All a Good Night”!
