Our Buyer Brought Tears To My Eyes today when my husband, Bob called to confirm their final walk through before the closing of the home they had purchased. We were the Buyer's agents on this transaction. We were contacted by these Buyers back in the beginning of the year through our website www.HammersTeam.com.
The husband is a United States Marine and the wife is a part time school teacher. Normally when people with small children bring their child or children to look at homes it can be difficult. But this couple has the cutest most well behaved little boy we ever met. We looked forward to having him along because he kept us so entertained.
The first time we met these Buyers they wanted us to just take them to drive around our area of expertise which is the Pascack Valley area. We spent a couple of hours driving them around and they asked some questions but for the most part were very quiet. Sometimes we get a sense for a Buyer the first time we meet but they were so quiet that it was difficult to read them. As time passed we took them out to look at homes as they used what they learned from us to help them to make a decision on which town they felt suited them the best.
They chose the quaint Pascack Valley town of Westwood so we concentrated on scouring the town to find the perfect home. The first home they saw during one of our trips that caught their eye was sadly out of their price range. But we told them we would keep an eye on it to see if the price would adjust to their range.
Time passed and the couple found a home that was more moderately priced and they made an offer which was accepted. During the Attorney Review process, the Seller decided to change her mind and withdrew the house from the market. We were all shocked and saddened by this turn of events because the home seemed to be a perfect fit for them. More time passed and we thought that the couple had given up hopes of finding anything that fit their needs and their budget.
Then one day we got a call from them and happily we began the search once more. Suddenly that first home they had set their hopes on reduced their price so we visited the home. This was a modest Cape Cod style home set on a beautiful street in the popular Goodwin Park area of the town of Westwood. It was an estate with no bells or whistles but the location was a dream for this young couple. The bidding process began and to make this long story short, the couple were able to get the house of their dreams in Westwood NJ.
The main reason we love being real estate agents is that we get to make the American dream a reality for people. This story was a case in point. Once we got close to the day of closing, Bob made the call to confirm that final walk through and while on speaker phone spoke to the wife. Sitting across the room from him I could hear the excitement in her voice as Bob told her that we were so happy that they were able to get the house of their dreams. I didn't expect it but without warning, tears of joy just began to stream down my face as I listened and remembered all we had gone through with them to get to this point. So that's the story of how Our Buyer Brought Tears To My Eyes!
