Over the years I've placed more than a handful of tenants in rentals all over town. It's usually a thankless job that takes up way too much time for the amount of income it provides.
A couple weeks ago I helped a man apply for and rent a house listed by a company and agent I'd never heard of. I sent the application over with an e-mail, the application was approved, and the man moved in over the weekend.
The co-broke check was in my mailbox this morning when I arrived at the office. Enclosed with it was a thank you card from the listing agent. WOW! What a wonderful surprise and a great way to start my Tuesday!
Until now, I've always saved my thank you cards and personal notes for people I know well. But why? This small act of kindness from a perfect stranger has taught me to let go of that idea. What power! What a concept: Spread kindness without restriction!
What would happen if we all did that?
