Can buying a home in Desert Ridge and Aviano be like shopping for a baby gift? Yesterday I had to visit a store I have happily avoided since giving a baby shower for my sister Ona over 10 years ago. Normally I would order the gift from a registry online and have it shipped to save time and money and preventing impulse purchases. But I was invited to a client’s baby shower at the last minute, and had to actually go into Babies “R” Us.
Although I was a little scared at the prospect of finding a gift for Jennifer’s new baby, I didn’t think too much about it until I walked in the store. Oh. My. Goodness! I thought my head was going to explode! This store at Scottsdale Rd. and Mayo Blvd. in North Scottsdale was almost the size of a Wal-Mart. I didn’t know where to look or what direction to find the items on the registry! The signs didn't make sense! The sea of baby girl pink and little boy blue floating in a world of cuteness had me wanting to stop and examine everything! Could I possibly afford to buy more? I seriously didn’t know how I was going to make it out of there. Luckily, I had a savior in the form of Robin, a wonderful employee who walked with me to find the items and knew exactly where the Posie pack n’ play sheet was. Although that item was not in stock, she directed me to the gift registry kiosk to print out the list and find a replacement.
I would have spent at least 30 more precious minutes there without Robin’s help. That may not seem like a lot of time especially when compared to buying a home in Aviano and Desert Ridge, but who wants to be late to a baby shower and miss the yummy snacks and the chance to win cool prizes? My mission was accomplished, but not without the help of someone knowledgeable who had the information to assist me.
That helped ME have more fun at the baby shower, and I was so proud to be there with my clients introducing me as their “family Realtor.” There were six family members there who have resulted in 12 extremely enjoyable transactions in the past 18 months in, all buying a home in Desert Ridge and Aviano neighborhoods in North Phoenix. I kind of like to think that this special family thinks of me as that “go to” person for all their real estate needs. With the right Realtor, buying a home in Desert Ridge and Aviano CAN be as easy as shopping for a baby gift.
