We All Need A Feel Good Story Now And Then

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty 0575737

Helpful Little GirlSimilar to the evening prime time TV news where they have an ending story that takes you away from the world and national BAD news, in blog topics there is a pause in the writing to vary from market conditions, the latest technology trends, rants about clients or other agents or bank's bad behavior. It is when

    We All Need A Feel Good Story Now And Then.

Today's episode involves a little five year old girl, her Daddy who is apparently having some medical issues, and the 9-1-1 Dispatch Operator. Well I don't need to tell you any more other than two things

  1. Little girls are cute and don't understimate how intelligent they are for such a young age and
  2. Life will constantly surprise you the way it goes. Listen to what ELSE the little girl is concerned about.

ENJOY. And lighten up throughout your day. USUALLY nothing is that serious!!!

Gary - "So far so good" - is something we should say too, when dealing with short sales.  I am glad that everything turned out okay.  Thanks for sharing :)

I want to hire this young lady as my real estate assistant.  It's amazing what kids learn when you don't think they are paying attention.

I knew that women were able to "prioritize" concerns.  I hadn't remembered that we acquired that skill so young. . .LOL

Children are often underestimated, but they know more, and can do more, than we give them credit for.

Gary, this was great. We had 2 nine year olds who called 911 and saved their parents lives on our news tonight. Children are incredible and the 911 dispatchers are so good with them. Savannah's story made me smile, thanks Gary.
