Another Successful Closing with a Testimonial, Orange County, NY

Real Estate Agent with Shahar Management

Last month I closed a sale that had been one of the more difficult transactions I had this year.  From the moment we placed our offer on the home they had decided on, it was constant issues virtually every other day at some points.  I did the best I could (as we always do) in a tough situation and was so pleased when all was finally aligned so that we could close. 

My clients were truly not to blame for any of the toughness, sometimes you just luck out.  You work with people who truly work with you and understand how hard you work at your job.  After the closing I received this note and know too that I have found friends that I will treasure always.  Patty and Corey thank you for being so cooperative and for the lovely note.  I love you both!

Debbie, buying a new home after having a custom built dream home is never easy. You were so kind, considerate and professional with our constant barrage of listings from one side of the county to the other. You are undoubtedly one of the hardest working Realtors I have ever met, no matter the task you greeted us with a smile and understanding that we knew what we really wanted it was just a matter of finding it. Other professionals in your field should aspire to be like you and we are more then thrilled that our paths crossed and we truly feel that we not only have a Realtor for life but a friend. Thank you seems so little to say for all your hard work...but thank you again!!  

Pat & Corey

Sometimes a little thank you goes a long way; other times it's the hand written note with a personal message that provides testimony for the recognition of hard work with sincere appreciation goes a lot further.

Pat & Corey look sincere too. I would say, you have a friend for life!

Hi Debbie: What a lovely and appreciative note you got from your clients. It is a rewarding feeling, isn't it. I never doubt your compassion for your clients.

Commendable job. Good to see you again.

This act of reciprocation you experienced is what makes being a realtor worthwhile. Years ago, I was taught that to be successful, follow these words of wisdom "to become interesting, become interested" . 

Today, too many people/realtors have their own agenda. A realtor who demonstrates a true interest in the wants/needs of their customers will continue to be the beneficiary of kinds words, complements.....not to mention referrals. Thanks for sharing your wonderful experience.
