Last Train To Niceville

Real Estate Agent with Prudential California Realty

I was busy doing the mom/realtor thing the other day when I stopped to check one of my social media sites. To my horror, a couple who I had been helping search for homes on an informal basis had posted the following update: "We are excited to put our house up for sale as we have put a bid in on another!".

WHAM! Right between the eyes! I couldn't believe it. I was in denial. The last time I had talked with them they were going to stay put for a while, then possibly start looking again in the Fall. But this is Summer. Hello! Why was I left out of the picture?

Then my husband comes home after a day of trying to sell his company's products. He's not a happy camper because one of his accounts asked him to specifically write an order, then changed their mind after he left, letting somone else know that my husband had "written an incorrect order", so he's now behind the 8 ball with his sales numbers.

Why are people not loyal? Why do they say one thing and do another? Why can't we all be transparent and up-front? We could research this for the rest of our lives and never get a concrete answer. I don't operate that way. I'm for truth and no hidden agenda. Surely there is some small town in this vast country of ours where the residents are nice to each other.

Dream on Heather!

So sorry you and your husband experienced such sad sales reversals in one day. Keep looking forward something better will happen for both of you.

Out of sight out of mind, people nowdays have no loyality, so we need to learn that what they say isn't necessarily what they mean.

Sometimes its not that people are mean, but that they don't know any better. Education is the key!

Hi Heather, I agree with Doris, that sometimes it is simply "out of sight, out of mind" and it isn't always meant to be personal.  I also am a firm believer in looking ahead to positive opportunities and not dwelling on the past.  We are pulling for both of you!  ~ Susan

Sorry this happened to you and your hubby --- people are not very loyal in the world these days.

Doing what you say and saying what you mean are things everyone has to do in order to be seen as a person of integrity, sister.

YOU ARE a person of integrity and it shows in your posts and in your comments.

May the Lord our Creator bless you and give you favor for being like our Messiah Jesus in your life!!
