Pay it forward

By
Services for Real Estate Pros

 

Pay it forward - each day I try to do something "nice" for someone. Sometimes it's someone I know, sometimes it's someone in my office. Sometimes it's at a grocery store, you just never know when a smile or a little help to someone can change their day.

Earlier this week I was driving by a competitors' listing on Hampton Ave, in Menomonee Falls. This condo has been on the market for some time. The condo was sold to the current owners at the height of the market, they just can't sell at a top price now, so it sits on the market. I see the sign every day. This is the second real estate company to take on the listing.

I noticed the sign was just a post for a little while. We recently had a rather bad wind storm, and the face of the sign was blown off. The holes that the hardware was put on ripped right through. So no fixin' that face!

I contacted the agent to let her know her sign had been down, she obviously doesn't live in the area and hasn't driven by it. The owners are out of state, so they wouldn't notice it.

The day after the storm I had checked on all my listings to ensure that the signage was all a ok. I know not everyone thought of it, or spent the extra time to take care of their listing. She thanked me for letting me know, I am she was a bit surprised that I would contact her. I told her I hoped someone would do me the favor if the situation was reversed.

Hi April~  How nice of you!  Don't you just love paying it forward?  Too bad everyone doesn't do it every single day!
