The best listing. It was the William Black Homestead. This property was the most northern captured property by the Confederate Army General R.T. Ewing. He held it for one night and kept the owners locked in the basement. The next day he was called to The Battle of Gettysburg. It property is also written about in the book Historic Homes of 1776. Not only was it a Historic in the sense of Gettysburg it also had markings of the underground railroad on the floors rafters discovered during restoration.
So a husband and wife get a divorce. The wife executes a listing agreement and the husband said he'll probably sign it after the meeting with the judge. Did he say Judge? I completed a listing agreement and asked him to present his listing to the judge as well. I made sure everything was accurate and suggested that he ask the judge to look over both agreement for any mistakes. I had the feeling the other listing agreement might have mistakes in a particular section the was new on our listing agreements. It allowed for additional fees over and above the listing commission. I was right. The broker had charged 6% plus and additional six percent. when it should have been a small dollar amount. It was a confusing practice in the beginning for many agents and for me it was the attention to detail that came through.
As professionals in any discipline we owe our best to the client.
I double bagged the deal. Best of all I signed as a witness on the deed. I wrote my signature perfect at closing that day.
