My Clients really love me…
I was a party to a very heart warming “first”- last night…A party thrown by buyers for our company to show their appreciation for all our hard work.
Recognition is a wonderful thing – most of us (if we’re good or lucky) get it in the form of folding money. Our reward is the fee we earn for a job well done.
Last night – we were treated to much more than an Atta-boy and a commission check. Our clients threw a catered dinner for the broker who sold them their home site and secured all the required permits prior to closing (me) Their Architect, General Contractor, Interior designer and project supervisor at their new home.
I have had many dinners with clients over the years, and many a deal has been struck over a glass of wine and a cold appetizer…but a catered affair to show their heart felt appreciation for the team that designed and built their home was a glowing review of the hard work involved in custom home building work these days.
A testimonial or a letter of recommendation are always nice things to file away for future references…but this was a really special thing for my buyers to do for our in-house marketing-design – build team. The home came out absolutely spectacular and it took over a year to complete. The buyers were from out of state and had a limited amount of time to convey their dreams of a perfect home. I kept telling them –“We do this all the time”…in the end they showed us they believed we do.
Thanks Janice and Steve for the wonderful night – I hope you enjoy your new home for many – many years to come.
