(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - I Found Your Dream Home and I'm Not Letting It Go!

Real Estate Agent with Helping people in transition 210155

Mr. & Mrs. Buyer, I want you to know that I was up all night searching for that just right home for you. I looked through hundreds of listings on the MLS. My desk was a disaster as I was working on your file.

My desk is a mess as I work on your file!

I was about to give up all hope….And then I saw it! The home that meets all your criteria! Your dream home!

It’s the one we’ve been looking for but thought we’d never find!

It’s in the perfect location!

It’s even priced right!

I raced right on over to take a look at it. The interior is immaculate, the grounds are well kept, and the sellers are very motivated!

I can’t wait for you to see it. I got a little messy in the process, but I’m holding onto your dream home and I'm not letting it go until you arrive….

I found your dream home and I'm not letting it go!

You're a hard-workin' buyer's agent, that's for sure! I hope your buyers show up before dark. You probably skipped lunch--I wouldn't want you to miss your dinner, too.

Craig, you are certainly Super-Realtor I have to say. And Mr. Photoshop, unless of course those photos are not retouched.

Mr. & Mrs. Buyer are very lucky to have you for their real estate agent!

Li - You're very welcome! And thank you for stopping on by!

Brenda - Thank you Brenda! I hope so too!

Wanda - Oh Wanda, I've read your blogs, and you do have a quick wit and creative skills. But thank you for the kind words! It's things like that, that make this all worthwhile.

Cindy - I have the key and I'm not putting it back in the lockbox until my buyers arrive!

Leesa - OK, here's your reminder......You keep coming back to my posts because you're a glutton of punishment! By the way folks, Leesa is the girl to call for homes in the Wake Forest area! And if you're waivering between Cary or Wake Forest, Leesa and I will engage in a no holds barred wrestling match as we compete for your loyalty!

Matt - Hmmm.....According to the scale, it looks like I'm getting the better end of that deal! Have your people draw up the contract and I'll review it!!!

Sounds like a good deal to me!

Dear Craig,

Two things: 1. Who knew your desk looks just like mine??

2. I knew you were big in North Carolina real estate, but I had no idea you were soooooo very tall!?!

From NC to TX in just a few short minutes!
