On a good day in Real Estate...Clients become Friends- Coeur d'alene, Idaho

Real Estate Agent

I received this picture last evening from a wonderful friend of mine!  She was the sister of friends and clients.   I did not realize how blessed my family and I would be.  After spending 3 days in a car with people you get to know them very quickly.  You learn about their lives, their family, their children, where they came from where they are going.  Probably one of the best things about this job.   When I find them a home that they have fallen in love with I get to sit back and smile.  And once in awhile I get to call those clients friends and share the home and the happiness they have found there if only for an occasional BBQ with the families, camping trips, a glass of wine or two, a lot of laughter and a few tears.

Real Estate brings us in contact with all types of people and we get to become friends with a few of them!  The variety, the lessons learned, the tears that are shed, and the laughter that is shared all comes back in a simple picture.  So when you get frustrated that that deal is not coming together, or those clients are driving you nuts, or the lender is not performing the way or in the time that they said they would....sit back take a breath and pull out a photo or two of your successes now friends and smile.  

Remember they all don't go our way and not every deal is perfect..but once in awhile we get to take strangers into our cars, show them an area that we hopefully love, find them a home that they will love..and when they leave we might just have been blessed with a new Friend!  I think that is sometimes the most lasting payday of all!!

I was reminded of that today!!

Some clients are just that - and the other ones that you become friends with, are very special indeed.  I have met some great people selling real estate and I am so lucky for that.

Oooooooooh Karen!  That is such a marvelous story, real too!  I'm so blessed to have you and your family as my/our friend(s).  Those words above are sooo moving......and that beautiful picture was on the same property you sold to us.........we are blessed to live in such a fabulous area and be reminded daily with God's creations.
