Mari Looks for a Flat (21)
Shirley: Good afternoon, may I help you?
Mari: Hi, I just saw the sign outside. You said you have some apartments?
Shirley: Oh, umm...oh flats, right. Yes! We have some flats available. Are you looking for some accommodation?
Mari: I am.
Shirley: Okay, well we’ve got one three bedroom flat up on the 10th floor and we’ve got two one bedroom flats available as well.
Mari: I’m looking for a one bedroom.
Shirley: Okay. Well, let me tell you a little bit about them. We’ve got a smaller one which has a dining kitchen area, and a bathroom with a toilet in the bathroom in sort of the ante room area. Both flats are actually partly-furnished so there is a lounge and a refrigerator, a stove, a washing machine in them. The smaller apartment actually has a really beautiful view looking over the bay and the other apartment which is a little bit bigger has a dining lounge area as well as the kitchen so it’s a little bit more spacious.
Mari: Can you tell me the prices?
Shirley: Yeah, well the one that is looking out over the bay it’s a gorgeous view...
Mari: This is the smaller one?
Shirley: It’s a little little bit smaller, yes, yes. That’s actually $900 a month and the other one is $800 a month. It’s got a view out over the city skyline.
Mari: Okay. I’m going to need some time to think about it.
Shirley: Okay, of course. Would you like to leave me your contact details or would you like to get back to me?
Mari: I’ll leave you my contact details but when do you want to know by?
Shirley: Okay, well we’ve had several offers for the one bedroom apartments. They are very sort of popular in this area being so close to the city so probably the sooner you get back to me, the better. You can actually contact me by phone from 9 to 5. I’ll give you the number. And after 5 o’clock you can contact me on my mobile.
Mari: Okay, can I have your contact information?
Shirley: Sure, okay. The landline is 02-5789-6122 and my mobile is 090-7861-5551.
Mari: Okay, thank you.
Shirley: Okay, I hope to hear from you. Bye.
