MY MOST ROMANTIC REAL ESTATE STORY

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Champlain Valley Properties

EVERY DAY AS A REALTOR IS BOTH A NEW ADVENTURE AND A LEARNING EXPERIENCE.

EVERYDAY IN LIVE IS ALSO AN ADVENTURE AND AS MY DADDY ALWAYS SAYS IF YOUR NOT LEARNING YOUR NOT LIVING (I LOVE YOU DAD).

BEFORE I WAS A REALTOR AND FAST APPROACHING MY 30TH BIRTHDAY. MY BIOLOGICAL CLOCK WAS TICKING AND I HAD AN ON AND OFF AGAIN BOYFRIEND WHO HAD TOLD ME HE DID NOT WANT TO GET MARRIED.

I DID WHAT ANY SENSIBLE SINGLE WOMAN WOULD DO. I CONTINUED TO DATE HIM AND PRETENED HE HAD NEVER SAID THAT.

A FEW MONTHS LATER HE BROKE UP WITH ME AND AGAIN LIKE ANY SENSIBLE SINGLE WOMAN WOULD DO. I CONTINUED TO CALL HIM AND YOU KNOW JUST HAPPEN TO BE WHERE HE WAS.

WHEN THE BIG DAY CAME AND I TURNED THE BIG 3-0. I HAD AN EPITHANY. IT WAS TIME FOR ME TO TAKE CONTROL OF MY OWN LIFE. I MADE A LIST OF WHAT I WANTED TO ACCOMPLISH. THE FIRST THING ON MY LIST WAS TO STOP RENTING AND TO PURCHASE A HOME OF MY OWN.

I HAD A DOWN PAYMENT AND I GOT PREQUALIFIED. THEN I DROVE AROUND LOOKING AT HOMES IN MY BUDGET. I FOUND ONE THAT WAS GOING TO BE GOING UP FOR AUCTION.

I NEEDED SOMEONE WHO KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT HOUSES TO TAKE A LOOK AT IT. SO WHO DID I CALL....ONE GUESS. MR NONCOMMITMENT !

IT WAS EARLY SPRING AND AS WE WALKING AROUND THE PROPERTY HE SAID TO ME "I THINK WE SHOULD TAKE THIS THING WE HAVE TO THE NEXT LEVEL" MY RESPONSE WAS "YOU MEAN START DATEING" BUT NO HE ASKED ME TO MARRY HIM!!!!!

NINE MONTHS LATER (I DIDN'T WANT TO GIVE HIM TOO MUCH TIME TO CHANGE HIS MIND) WE BECAME HUSBAND AND WIFE.

HAPPY VALENTINESDAY TO MY BELOVED HUSBAND,FATHER OF OUR TWO BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN, PARTNER IN LIFE AND BEST FRIEND. TIL DEATH DO US PART. XOXOXOX
