Rewards Come in Several Shapes & Sizes

I received a message from a client the other day. "Would you like to see what we have done to our house?" It was a young couple, first time home buyers. I spent several months out looking at Short Sales, Home Path, HUD homes and everything in between.  I think you probably know the drill.

We found several homes they liked, wrote several offers and finally HUD sent me an email saying that they were the top bidders on a home. Probably their favorite. Someone else had a higher bid but didn't go through with the sale and we were the 2nd highest bidder so it was offered to my clients. I could go on about some of the hurdles we had to overcome finalizing the deal but this is not about the deal. 

I made an appointment to go and see what they had done to the house. On the appointed day I arrived and they welcomed me into their home. They had painted the entire main floor and had new carpet installed. The house looked great. But the smiles and the pride of ownership I saw in their faces was the greatest reward I could receive. Their 3 year old son took me to his room to show me how awesome it was. He loved their new house. They loved their new house. As I left I realized even though I received a commission for helping them find and purchase a home this experience was way more rewarding.

I love a good story with a happy ending :-) The saying seems to ring true for you- Do what you love and success will follow.
