From Client to Neighbor

Real Estate Agent with CATARRA CA BRE# 01871201

I think even if you do not make official New Year Resolutions many of us reflect on the what happened in the past year and what we want to happen in the year that is about to unfold.  One of the things I enjoyed most last year was when clients turned into neighbors.

Last year I decided that I was going to really concentrate selling homes in my own neighborhood.  In fact my first blog post as part of the ActiveRain community was about my neighborhood, the Shoreline West neighborhood in Mountain View, CA

One of the greatest things that happened in concentrating on my own neighborhood is that I have clients that have turned into neighbors.  I tell everyone that one of the greatest perks of my job is picking out new neighbors.  After I say that almost always they lean in and ask me; “What do you do if you have a client you don't like?”  Lucky for me I have not had that problem.  I have however had wonderful clients that I would have loved to have as neighbors and we were not able to find them the right place in Mountain View.  Some other community has gotten lucky and has them as new residents.

So as 2012 starts to unfold I am happy for my new neighbors that moved into the neighborhood in 2011 and I am excited to meet new clients that will be new neighbors in 2012!
