A good day!

Real Estate Agent with Zest Realty

Well today was a good day. We had a closing and the buyers were first time home buyers. The excitement you get when working with first time buyers I feel is the best part of the real estate profession. I wish all our client's could be like the one's today, it didn't matter to them that the home didn't have all the fancy upgrades or wasn't  the tajma hal all that matter to them was they had a home and were homeowners. For all the tough dealings you come across in real estate and sometimes frustrating buyer's and seller's it's days like this make you proud to be a Realtor. I must say tomorrow we will have a little more spring in our step and hope to work with more people who appreciate your time, energy, and dedication to our profession.

I LOVE first time homebuyers!  They are AMAZING!  The commission paid is normally not as much as on another deal because of the price range they are in...but this business is NOT all about the $$$$!

Positive comments in today's market are so welcomed, so many can't see past the negative.  This is a great market with some fantastic clients and it looks like you had one of the fantastic ones.  And better yet you placed them in their first home, that is an awesome feeling!

You are right.  It always feels so much better helping the FTHB get their first home.

Hi, Dan! What a great post! I love working with first-time homebuyers and that makes up a big part of my clientele. They can be a little more challenging and need a little more education, but the pay-off in the end is definitely worth it!
