Ok Masterson, you got this. I took a deep breath and walked into the impressive office space. I was pretty new in real estate but even I was aware this building would not be on the market long. Twenty stories, overlooking Lake Michigan, yeah bring on the buyers. It was 1:15; my showing wasn’t until 1:30. Breathe Elyse, itâ€™s just another property. Mr. James seemed excited about the building during our last conversation, just show it off and wait for his reaction. I took a deep breath, pushed my dark hair behind my ear, and nervously ran my hands down my thighs to smooth the black pencil skirt.
“Ms. Masterson?” I heard a high pitched voice call from the door.
“Yes, please call me Elyse.” I answered with a smile, “You are with Mr. James, I presume?”
“Yes I’m his assistant Roslyn; he should be here in just a few minutes.” She replied, trying to take in the visually impressive space.
The door opened and a tall man in strode a tall man in a smart black suit.
“Good afternoon ladies, sorry to keep you waiting.” he announced smoothly. He looked at me a moment and offered his hand, “Grayson James, you must be Ms. Masterson.”
“Yes, please call me Elyse. It’s nice to meet you Mr. James.” I replied shaking his hand. A charge immediately shot through my body. His hands were soft, yet his grip was firm. That says a lot about a man.
The elevator took several minutes to reach the twentieth floor. The doors opened to a large reception area with beige walls and plush dark blue carpet. There were several smaller offices located on the twentieth floor and a large executive office. The executive office boasted a long wall of windows facing the Lake. He stood there taking in the view for several minutes.
â€śIs the view to your liking?â€ť I asked, motioning to the lake.
He looked at me and subtly licked his lips, â€śI am very much enjoying the view from here.â€ť
My heart rate spiked and my legs got weak, â€śIâ€™m glad you approve, Mr. James.â€ť I replied breathily, I immediately pulled myself back together â€śIâ€™m going to check on Roslyn and see if she has any questions for me. Take your time.â€ť
