Being fluent in Spanish should be such an asset in our business. If I could speak Spanish I'm sure I could gain the confidence of our wonderful Hispanic families in Searcy Arkansas and White County Arkansas.
Recently I had this little country foreclosure to sell. It needed to be finished. A young Hispanic man came in to see me about it and upon inspecting it he said that he or his family wanted to buy it. He went to the bank and didn't have the strength to buy it but his brother in another state did have the assets to purchase.
Visiting with the man seated in front of me was difficult but then visiting on the phone with the brother was even harder. Both men spoke some English but were far from fluent in English.
I called in an interpreter. This lovely lady grew up in California with Hispanic parents who very wisely spoke only Spanish at home to her with the theory that she'd be learning English in school but she needed the Spanish language also. It has worked. She speaks fluent Spanish and has the most trusting personality. She was able to help me with the clients by explaining the contract, making phone calls to the brother, and she came to the close of the house today. Her name is Denise Flores and I have her permission to brag on her and put her picture in my blog.
If you find yourself in need of help with a contract she'd be a great helper.
