Helping the Little Guy pays off...AGAIN!

By
Real Estate Agent with ADT Security Services

A client I helped about 4 years ago bought a very affordable townhouse for this market at the time.  As I remember this buyer had worked with another agent before me, and even wrote two offers that were rejected.  They came to me after this agent apparently kicked them to the curb for a easier or maybe a bigger sale.  I will reiterate that it was a very affordable home at the time when the average client was looking for homes for 3 to 4 times as much.

As I began working with them it appeared to me that they were great people, qualified buyers, easy to work with, and took the advice I provided. I showed them a handful of properties that met their criteria.  I wrote ONLY one offer and was able to negotiate easily.  Everything went smoothly and we closed quickly. 

The property that we settled on happened to be one of the ones that the other agent wrote a offer for, but couldn't make happen.  All I could think was, "His loss was my gain."

Today, I received a call from this client asking me if I could help his brother-in-law!  You guessed it!  I have another interested, qualified, and cooperative buyer.  Looks like taking the time to help the little guy pays off AGAIN.

Rebecca,

Thumbs up is right.  I showed the referred client several properties yesterday and it looks like we may be making an offer soon.  Thanks for the comment.
