Southern Maryland Best Buys


A new country song for Realtors and the fun of Active Rain

This is an important topic in our profession. It is important that  the box works, can be found , has the correct code....the list goes on. Some agents do not have keys or codes for other areas. Some keys are brand new so they do not work in the doors. Check first!

Lockbox BluesI recently wrote a post lamenting the inconsiderate spots where "some" listing agents place lockboxes. I called it The Lockbox Blues. While a number of comments suggested it might make a good country tune - Bruce Walter went the extra step. Doesn't this perfectly sum up the fun and friendship we enjoy in the Rain?  Thanks Bruce, I'm still chuckling.


Debb,  Hopefully listing agents have heard your voice,  and that they will change their inconsiderate ways (can you tell I work with buyers!!!)

If they do, perhaps you will be singing a new tune instead of THE LOCK BOX BLUES:




 (to the tune of Willie Nelson's TO ALL THE GIRLS I'VE LOVED BEFORE)


To all the lockboxes I've opened before,

Enabling me to unlock the front door.

Supra on the door is where you belong,

To you respectful agents I dedicate this song.

To all the lockboxes I've opened before.



To all the combos I once caressed,

the factory code "SPI" is the very best!

Helping my business to grow,

Lockbox not too high or too low

To all the lockboxes I've opened before.



The winds of Washington are fiercely blowing,

Knocking me down; delaying my showing.

Skirt flying high; mud covered shoes

Why I still have the lockbox blues!


So, the next time you're slogging through mud and muck, standing on your tip-toes, fearful of reaching into a dark spot (snakes and spiders), getting scratched by thorny shrubs, or bending over (in a skirt) to open up a lockbox - hum this little tune and keep on smiling.

Thanks Cheryl. I appreciate the reblog and it appears as if there are many of us in the Rain who sing "The Lockbox Blues" on occasion.

By the way, love the little animated clip art with the Golden. So cute.

Have a great week.
