Adonis Diaries

I made dreams Real for others. Mine has to wait

Note: Re-edit of “A Dream Real (written in 1999 and posted on October 25, 2008)

1.   My fellow Realtors make fun of me, of my choice of name.

Advertising Dr. Adonis is intimidating, it scares people off.

A few, maybe.  Many call on me.

They keep me busy, friendly, alert and happy.

 

2.   Dr. Adonis has no business selling homes.

Dr. Adonis was meant to teach, to be employed.

Dr. Adonis joined the rank of the selfish, the greedy.

Dr. Adonis is banished from the elite gangs.

 

3.   I got to know the mind of the Realtor.

You see one, you see all.

Like you, I don’t like him.

He sells your houses for fees.

 

4.   Long hours, long days and nights.

I sell a friend what he will call “My Home”.

I make his cherished dream come true.

I am associated with a few dreams, long lasting dreams.

Kids have their own rooms; I never had mine.

Kids play in the basement; I sleep in part of one.

 

5.   I call, I mail, I follow up and I serve.

I serve and call no more:  I just drop by.

Big hearts, big smiles open the door for me.

I have no home of mine:  Home is where that heart is.

 

I am a Realtor.  I don’t like him.

I sell dreams, Real ones, at last.

Note: I had a PhD in industrial engineering and thus I opted for Dr. Adonis. Many used to call me for physical checks on account that they thought that I was a physician

Plain Talk; (1999)

 

1.   You are fired.  Brokers don’t like your poem

About Realtors whom you don’t like much.

Your poem is totally negative:  Not a player.

You need to cooperate to stay in the game.

 

2.   You are fired.  You were never a problem.

Hard working, mindlessly hard working.

You need to work smart:  Don’t work.

You are just too much headaches for us all.

 

3.   You are fired.  I like you.  You might succeed.

You are short, short sighted, not elegant, the wrong image for success.

You are yet stubborn:  I want your own good.

Too independent even for a Realtor.

 

4.   You are fired.  Your freedom of speech is dangerous.

You are confirming peoples’ perception about us.

Fat commissions to sustain expensive images.

Luxury cars, on lease.  Too busy, appointment next week.

 

5.   You are fired.  You should not host open houses 5 days a week.

Open houses don’t sell homes.  Ads and accessible information don’t either.

Listen to me:  Plant the sign.  What sell are price and time.

Price, low prices, time, long time.
