Did You Ever NOT Want to Sell Your Clients’ Home? (Because you DIDN’T want them to leave?)
In my community at Fishhawk Lake, I live here and have the time of my life selling real estate in this great vacation destination. HOWEVER, every now and then I meet up with sellers that I fall in love with and I really don’t want to sell their home!
Mr. and Mrs. M bought one of the very first lots here waaaay back in 1967, before the lake even had water.They camped for years, sharing stories of sleeping at the very small clubhouse, (one of the first buildings here) then built their home themselves after hiring an actual “barn builder” to do the exterior structure, taking their time, finishing the interior in 1982. The rich history of memories of Fishhawk Lakeare a firm part of their family lore and the first time I sat down with them, I stayed for three hours.
Winter 1967 Newspaper, Map of Lots 1972
Mrs. M., a statuesque woman, with sky-blue eyes that glisten spoke rather wistfully of being part of the first marketing team here at Fishhawk Lake. She was a fountain of knowledge and had old maps, and other delightful memorabilia along with a few stories, like how the first developer ran off with $100,000 and Fishhawk Lake could have become just a distant memory!
Mr. M., a very tall man with one of the deepest and kindest voices I have ever heard had “fish stories” to share. One of his sons caught a 28” trout in Fishhawk Lake, winning first place at the 1st Fish Derby in 1984 in the Junior Division, he told me proudly then grabbed a collage of pictures to point out the fish lying on the dock beside his smiling son. They still have trophies displayed on the cabin shelves behind the couch.
Here they were hiring me to sell their beloved hand-hewn cabin and I didn’t want them to go!! I also knew in my heart that it would sell fast.
Five days after listing this property at Fishhawk Lake (in November!), a young family with sons became new buyers of mine and after one day of showing them several cabins, they decided on Mr. and Mrs. M’s lakefront cabin. In two weeks, it went into Sale Pending. “Things are moving kind of fast,” Mr. M said. Well, YEAH...for me, too. Their 40+ years of lake-living history needs to be captured and shared before they leave our lovely community forever!
A drawing from days gone by, found in a drawer at the M’s Fishhawk Lake cabin…some young artist in the making.
To Mr and Mrs. M—
I will miss you and can only hope that every newcomer here is as wonderful as you both are.
