My Favorite Listing Photo

This is my favorite Listing photo and you can see from the date stamp that it's a listing I had some time ago. This photo and the memories it brings to mind fills me with "warm fuzzies".

It's easy to see this is not the fanciest, most expensive, or grandious listing I've ever had. It's a modest home with no garage, well kept, and at the time home to a 80 something year old couple. Gus was a retired Sargent with no other income than his military retirement. His Bride Jane had always been Gus's wife and never held a job outside of the home. They were just very kind people, thankful for what they had, and generous as they could be.

Gus and Jane were ready to move on, I don't remember why/where they were moving to but they were so kind to me and grateful that I would help them sell their home. Gus and Jane are the kind of clients that make our work a beautiful thing.

Gus and Jane lived here

Good Morning Bob - that is a great photo and a great story.  People don't remember what you do as much as they remember how you make them feel.
