Lisa and Jim's Northern Nevada Real Estate Blog: I'm Not Lisa ... ERR ! UMMMM ! ... At Least Not Lisa Valentine !

I'm Not Lisa ... ERR ! UMMMM ! ... At Least Not Lisa Valentine !

I'm Not Lisa ... ERR UMMMM ! ... At Least Not Lisa Valentine !

In the Carson Valley / Carson City market that we work in Northern Nevada there are a few hundred real estate agents.  We all belong to the Sierra Nevada Association of Realtors - SNAR for short.

I'm Lisa Wetzel, married to my partner and husband Jim Valentine for over 25 years.  We work at Lisa Wetzel - by Lisa Wetzel RE/MAX Realty AffilaitesRE/MAX Realty Affiliates.  We have sold real estate together in Carson Valley and Carson since we first met over 29 years ago. 

Lisa Valentine is a wonderful real estate agent who lives and works in Lake Tahoe Nevada, 20 minutes to the west in the Sierra Nevada Mountains!  Lisa V. works for Coldwell Banker.

Carson Valley is a very small community, everyone knows everyone, so I'm surprised that there seems to be so much confusion.  At first I kept having strange things happen, like agents leaving me a message that they were still waiting for their counter offer, did I receive the offer they faxed me, or what's the price on my new listing at XYZ ?

Now ... I'm getting used to the mix ups and have my regular pat answer, "I'm Lisa Wetzel ... Lisa Valentine works at Coldwell Banker!

Lisa - I have the same problem and have received similar calls intended for the "other" Judy Jennings. The funniest call was when an agent from her own office called my cell phone to ask a question about one of her listings. I feel your pain.

Lisa - I'm learning you aren't the only one with this problem.

Lisa - Can you imagine how much more complicated it would be if you were Lisa Valentine? And what about your brokerage before you were with RE/MAX? Now that's enough to make me need an aspirin :-)

Good thing you kept your "stage name", dear.  Jim

You will always be Lisa to me. When I first saw Lisa Valentine's name  I raised an eyebrow because I know your husband and his last name is the same as hers. I thought for a second it was you but then realized it was another agent. I am sure lots of folks will continue to need an education. I don't know who's on first but I know who Lisa is.
