BLINDS WIDE OPEN -day 54 Amateur vs. Pro

My sister Kelly comes running down the office hall and yells at me to come quick, there is a big Rattlesnake outside the office window. As I run out, I grab an open house flag so I would be able to corral the snake. It is a beauty, fat and nearly 4 feet and a dark greenish/brown color. I am outside the window where 10 or so agents (mostly ladies) are looking out in awe, as I attempt to lift the snake with the flag back up into the bushes. As I look up the hill I see this man bounding down the hill towards me and I immediately recognize him from watching Animal Planet with the kids. It is none other than South African Jules Sylvester, and as he approaches I can feel my insecurities rise. He calmly says "I'll take it from here" but what I heard was "Sonny boy, you are out of your league and would you get out of my way and let the pro handle this?" With one swift move Jules has the snake in his hand, liftes it up in front of the window and kisses the back of its head. Humiliated, I slither back to my office. I quickly soothe my ego and think to myself that I could probably throw a ball farther than Jules. Oh well, it really was fun watching the Pro.

This is Dave, from The McLaughlin Group, keeping it real in real estate!
