Philadelphia, PA: Contractor Saves A Young Man's Day

Real Estate Agent with Palmer House Properties 292385

avm logo It's crazy how everything happens for a reason and how the hearts of people work are even crazier and a blessing too. I was happy to be a part of the blessing I am about to share.

A couple of Sunday's ago, I had to head to go to the store. The normal corner store I go to didn't have what I needed so I went to another one that I had never been to. While at the counter waiting to pay for my things, I couldn't help but overhear a young man speaking with another man about his troubles with finding a job. He sounded a little down because his first born daughter was on the way due to be delivered in February. As I am typing this, the sound of his voice saying, "Something has to give. I have to find something because she's coming" comes to my mind. I normally mind my business and I tried hard to this time as well. I looked at him, smiled, and walked to my car. As I was turning the key to start my engine, the man that he was speaking to walks out of the store. I had to say something to him. This young man's trouble was weighing heavy on my heart. I asked how well he knew the young man and he said he knew him very well and that he was nice and played with his children often. I gave him my card and told him to tell the young man to call me. I had to cut the conversation short because my phone rang. I answered and just as I was done having my conversation, the young man knocked on my car window wanting to thank me. I decided to speak with him right then and there. I told him that I wanted to help him because I didn't want him to turn to drastic measures to take care of his child. He was so nervous, it took me a minute to get out of him what he was actually good at. Finally I was able to find that he had experience with clean outs and home improvement. Well wasn't that an 'Ah Ha' moment. It was perfect. I am a Realtor and of course I know contractors. I told him that I knew some contractors and for him to call me. We exchanged numbers and before leaving, I let him know that I would help if I could and not to worry because we were gonna find him a way to take care of his baby.

Now, a while back I wrote a blog about my wonderful contractor and I felt to give him a call to see if he needed any extra help. I called his wife to see if this was a good idea and she must've agreed because my contractor gave me a call the next day and asked to have the young man contact him. To make a long story short, the young man called back with a happiness I can't put into words thanking me for helping him out. My contractor gave him a job just on a word of this man needing help without knowing anything else besides that. When I thanked him for helping this man out which in turns helps our community, he replied "Truth is if we don't give support for our youth, who will? That's one of my goals, to get large enough that I can start programs to teach them trades like this." Well aside from doing my best to make AVM Solutions grow because I am a huge fan of their work, I will do my best to make them grow because their growth means a better community. So I say to Monica and Antonio Adams, the owners of AVM Solutions, thank you from the bottom of my heart. You made not minding my business prove to be a good choice....

Dee, it's wonderful that you decided to help out a young man who seemed to be at a loss as to what he would do with a new baby on the way and no job. I hope everything works out and  he succeeds with the  new job and fatherhood, Thanks for sharing.
