I realized I tend to write too much about the negatives I see in our business. I thought I would change the tone and write about something positive that happened to me this month.
The reality is we have an industry made up of some really great people and a few who should be in another line of work. I love this business and couldn't imagine doing anything else until I retire.
I hadn't shared with the group about my last month. I have been in and out of the hospital this month. The first week of the month I had surgery and last week I wound up back in the hospital with severe internal bleeding. As such I have had a lot of free time to rest and play on my laptop and on AR. Unfortunately I have been limited to what I could do with my clients.
The day I of me getting out of the hospital for the first time a client called. I was still in the hospital waiting for the wheel chair to take me to the car. I have been communicating to them on the east coast for about a year and they now arrived in Hawaii and wanted to look at a couple of the properties I had e-mailed them. I let them know my situation and said I would call another top agent in my office who they would really like to help us out.
So I called trusted friend and partner in crime Karen. She jumped to the rescue and followed up with them. She worked with them last week while I was back in the hospital for the second time and on Christmas Eve got them in contract. The amazing part is she continued to refuse any part of the commission. Christmas Day Karen and her husband got on a plane to go spend the rest of the holidays on the mainland with family. I am taking over today to get the escrow opened and see it the end.
We are doing a 50/50 split over her objections. What a class act!
