They were the couple every REALTOR loves to work with. When the front door opened , you clicked right away. Greeted with a smile, little kids running around happy, wife and husband jabbing each other throughout our meeting. Beautiful House, manicured lawn.The kind of people you knew you would stay in touch with on a friendly basis long after the transaction closed. Brad and Renee, two little girls 2 & 4 and three teenage daughters from his first marriage. Selling this home to move into their dream home ,built together and waiting to be filled with love.
Sitting at the settlement table, laughing and complimenting each other on how great it was to work with one another. Off to the moving trucks to begin the next phase in this family journey.
Brad Died Suddenly the other day. A car accident after a relaxing day on the golf course, on the way home to a beautiful family in their new home. Wait, that can't be...We just had settlement...He just emailed me a testimonial. His wife has two little girls in this big new house. They haven't even unpacked yet. I sit stunned. Visions of our first meeting, his wife juggling two little kids while we talked. Fast forward to laughing at settlement and shaking hands....Visions now of his wife, juggling two little girls, no one laughing, just them in their new home....someone missing.
This journey, called Life....can take a sudden Detour in the blink of an eye. In an instant, your life can change or be taken from you. Make those phone calls to Family you have been meaning to get too. Tell the ones you love, Just That, You LOVE them. Hug your kids on the way out the door. Take that trip you have been thinking about. Sometimes Life doesn't seem fair, but none of us are promised tomorrow, only today.
Rest in Peace Brad. God Bless Your Family.
