It's UNBELIEVABLE What My Client Did!

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Rox Realty

How could they?  We've worked together for over a year!  I sold them an awesome house for 20% under appraisal.  I found their parents perfect houses.  They've either bought or are under contract for several investment properties.  I even put one house under a sale contract in less than a month for full price. Do you know what they did??? 

They went to bat for ME with an online auction company!!  I found a perfect investment property for them.  The surprisedownside was I found it with three hours left to the auction.  Instructions required me to register as the buyers agent no less than 24 hours before the auction ending.  I missed the registration cutoff. 

I could have kept quiet.  No one knew about the auction except me.  But the house was perfect for what the client wanted:  price, condition, location.  But if I told my client...no commission for me. 

I immediately emailed him the information, then called him.  "Here is how you register.  I'm sorry, I can't do it for you but you can do it.  Let me know if you need help."   Low and behold, he was the high bidder!  I am genuinely happy for them.  It is a good investment opportunity as a rental, a good addition to the other properties. 

When the auction company contacted him, he told them to contact me - that I told him about the sale but couldn't register because of the cutoff.  He only knew about the property because of my efforts and to assign me to the file.  And to all of our surprise - they did!  The auction contacted me for my information and will include me on the transaction.

Now don't get all excited - this is one of those 1% commission companies.  But still...my client remembered he has an agent that takes care of him.  And he took care of me!

Thank you Mr Client.  I appreciate it.

It is sad that a man of integrity is looked upon as an anomaly in this day and age . . . cud's to your client for doing the right thing!

Bea-good for your client and even better for the auction company for agreeing to pay you even if it is a paltry amount.

They are GREAT clients!  I was shocked the online auction company agreed.  I have registered this and other clients in the past (and I think that is part of the reason they did agree because of the past history).  I checked the website a week ago and that house wasn't listed. When I checked Thursday, there it was and it was ending in three hours!  I'm just glad it worked out for everyone :)

It's the things other that a great big fat commission that bring real satisfaction at the end of the day, a lesson we should all learn.  This story shows you cared Bea, it shows you cared. Thanks for sharing.

Bea, It is great to know that you are appreciated. If you hadn't done such a fine job for them this may have turned out differently.

I was ready to say, "I have had clients like that."  I was sure it was going to be a sob story.  It's good to hear that there are still morals out there.  Lucky you to have such a great client.
