For those people selling a house, it can be hard to do sometimes. This is true for both the house owners and the real estate agents who are showing the house to prospective buyers. Real estate agents are faced with the unexpected at times: unexpectedly discovering a corpse in a home, getting locked out on a balcony while doing a walkthrough, learning that the pets who were supposed to be out of the
home for the showing are still in the house, and angry at strangers coming inside, or finding wildlife inside the house such as a raccoon or skunk. But despite these negative things, selling a home can be a rewarding and happy experience for the men and women who work hard to sell the homes they have been entrusted with.

All in a Day’s Work for Real Estate agents collects true stories that have been submitted by real estate agents from across the USA into a compelling and funny read. I am not involved with real estate,and I found myself drawn in and laughing along with many of these stories. There were a few of the sections that dealt with terms that were very specific to the trade, but I found there were good introductions that explained those terms to the non real estate savvy. For those readers who do sell homes, they may find that they are not alone, or get to see what other sellers have encountered on the
job. Editor TC McClenning has put together a solid collection of stories that show the hard work, and the above and beyond steps many realtors do to sell their buyers the home of their dreams. This book seems to be a good look into a job that is often overlooked.
