Stalker Client RETURNS!

Impeccable timing! Client from post from years ago (below), referral from him, calls again! Laughing... if you only knew, as Paul Harvey said, the rest of the story...

This week I laughed as my client sent me an email about his pool equipment. I couldn't help myself. It reminded me of me... suspicious little thing... and clever... and WOW! Love my clients!

He contracted on a bank owned property a few weeks ago. He revisited it multiple times before closing. He was excited and anxious and basically wanted to see it daily and into every little detail. He would text me at all hours of the day with questions and seeking advice. It was apparent he was in love. A love sick, obsessed house stalker! On the one hand, it's completely endearing. On the other hand, I am hearing creepy Alfred Hitchcock bells... oh, to discern...

He gets to the house a day after closing, meeting the locksmith because that's what FNMA requires, the buyer, at the buyer's expense, shall change the lockset... so he is meeting there for that, as planned, the following day, and he notes there is this one pool part missing from the pool equipment section. Hmmmm.....

Because he is so in love, and so obsessed, he took pictures the day before. He knew every detail of that house INCLUDING THE POOL EQUIPMENT! Who photos that?! He did! He took the pic the day before closing and the day of closing went by and text me saying, "Hey, weird thing, it appears the lawn's been upkept today and the pool worked on today... and there is something missing..."

The next day as he was there with the locksmith he texts me and said he is missing this particular pool part. He has the before pic and the after pic (?!?) and is well aware the property has been serviced and that part is MIA and he wants it back! NOW!

And that is when I realized you can call him a house stalker or pool part stalker if you want, but I just call it a client in love. Love that!

Note: YES! He got the part back! Let me elaborate how that went... He had the before pic. He had the after pic. He went to buy the part, was going to "let it go" and correct it himself. But he finds out it's discontinued! Gonna be a nightmare to replace/repair quickly so he can get into the quickly greening pool since it's inoperable without the part and weather turning fast -- he wants to use the pool YESTERDAY! So he sends me a subsequent photo of a diagram of the pool equipment with the pool part missing noted. So I now have a before pic, after pic, and diagram?!? All went to listing agent who called service man who took care of it right away. Wonderful listing agent. Wonderful serviceman. Couldn't have gone any better.

What a way to stay on the ball. Yes, it could be argueable that he was quite intense, but at least he caught a mistake. How funny. :)
