A Home-Selling Woman – JLPT N2

It’s been four months since I started working in the sales department. I no longer have to put brochures in the mailboxes, the right of passage for new members of the team. However, my boss still makes some pretty ridiculous demands. Just the other day, he gave me an expensive property to sell. But then he asks me to make copies, serve tea, and other mundane tasks. One day, he called me over with a serious look on his face. “Here comes another silly demand,” I thought. Then, he opened his mouth. “So, look here.” As he silently left me hanging, I felt uneasy, figuring I had made some mistake. After a moment, he said “Well done!” Well, that was unexpected! The boss actually encouraged me!

It was about the expensive property that I had been put in charge of. Apparently, the purchaser called him to thank us and said, “It’s exactly what I was looking for!” What’s more, the client said, “My friend has also been looking for house, so I would like to introduce you.” “I’m very proud of you,” my boss said with a big smile. The family had asked about barrier-free specifications, such as the number of stairs and if there were handrails in the bathroom, because the grandmother who lives with them has a bad leg. Although the family was happy with location and the interior, the problem was that the older home had stairs at the entrance. “If only there were no stairs…” they said, disappointed.

So I introduced them to a good contractor, and I gave them my ideas about how to make life more comfortable for their grandmother. I only tried to do my best in my role as agent. That they seemed so thrilled, well… I was happy, too. My boss patted me on the back and said, “Tonight, we’re going to get a drink.” as he returned to his work. I’m not sure if I’ll go with him or not, but I definitely will have a drink tonight. Champagne. This sales job, even though it’s been a struggle, has its moments. I can’t help smiling with pleasure.
