Thankful Thursdays…and then 'HARD' happened!

Thankful Thursdays…and then 'HARD' happened!

Thankful Thursdays…and then 'HARD' happened!

My client said. “I bet this is the easiest deal you’ve ever done!” At the time, I felt he may have been right! In the same day, I:

  • Obtained the listing
  • Took some photos of the property
  • Had all paperwork signed and dated
  • Uploaded the information to the MLS
  • Had the sign strategically placed in the yard

And then it went under contract in less than a week. It seemed like a dream transactionand then 'HARD' happened!

  • The buyer's agent left on vacation
  • Communication lines broke down
  • The buyer began to feel remorse

Throughout the process after acceptance, ‘EASY’ was no part of this transaction.

It became 'HARD' to keep the momentum going…'HARD' to put creeping doubts to rest…'HARD' to accept that it may fail…'HARD' to keep positive. This transaction stretched me farther than any previous one had, ever in my career!

EASY is good but when 'HARD' happens, it is definitely earned! I am thankful for the sellers trust in my abilities to get their home SOLD and CLOSED!

I think everyone has had a similiar experience.  It is in those transaction that you really need to be on top of your game.

I always say we earn our money holding the transaction together and that's because that is the hard part.

Wanda, way to go. I do not believe that any deal is actually easy these days. No matter what you kept it together and you earned your commission. Indeed, give thanks.

Well done Wanda. The problem came when the seller uttered those words. Nothing is over until everybody is shaking hands and smiling as they walk away from the closing

Nothing more frustrating than when a easy transaction decides to take a turn on you especially when there really is nothing you can do.

Wanda,
Disappointments are all to common in our line of work.  And to soften the feeling we should look at disappointments as a necessary experience along the way to ultimate success.  You can also do the thing you like to do to take the edge off—fishing!  It is time.
