Spring in Crosby, TX

Real Estate Agent with Houston Realty

What a beautiful day it is in Crosby, TX today!! I love this time of year...the birds are chirping, flowers beginning to bloom, spring sports are already in full force all around town...what a wonderful way to start spring break! It is this time of year that I look forward to the most as a Realtor! I almost feel like a child on Christmas morning...waiting with anticipation for the exciting faces to just pop out at the prospect of finding a new home...you know that giddy feeling, kind of like the feeling we would get as children when would go over a hill too fast and the butterflies would begin to flutter in our stomachs...yep, that's the feeling. As a Realtor that is one of the best feelings in the world. Experiencing that excitement on a daily basis with clients.

I was showing a home in Newport a couple of days ago...it was our third home for the day to see together. Newlyweds, just starting out. I think they were so excited at the prospect of having a home that was all their own that I could have shown them a cardboard box and they would have been excited. We had five homes on our list to tour that day but that quickly changed when the door opened to home number three. That was it. They knew it and I knew it...without even saying a word. Situated in the middle of a cul-de-sac, fresh flowers planted, freshly painted shutters on the windows, mahogany door...but there was something else...something else that told us that this one was "the one". We couldn't quite place it but we all knew the moment we walked in that this would be where they would start their new life together...as we were leaving, the young lady turned and looked at me and smiled...she said, "All I know is it feels like home".

 Home...the word home just feels good doesn't it??!!
