Every transaction is unique, every client special and every closing memorable. Sometimes our transactions are so unique that they turn into a career highlight and one for the story books!
2014 marked my 10th anniversary as a REALTOR® in the Silver Spring, MD area. How very fitting that I ended the year with one of these very unique transactions. It's quickly becoming one of my favorite Real Estate stories to share and will, no doubt, always stay with me as a highlight of my career.
Early November I made plans to travel to Germany to visit and attend to family matters. Shortly after I received a contact request from customers who were in the process of planning their move back to the US from Germany.
I immediately thought about how awesome it would be if we could meet up while I was in Germany. Little did I know at this point that we wouldn't only meet up but I would also be delivering the keys to their new home!
When buyers have planned their purchase for some time, prepared financially and know exactly what they want, then things can happen very fast. My relocation clients were prepared, had done their research and had already identified the area they wanted to purchase in as well as a couple of homes. One of those turned out to be the one!
We successfully competed against another offer, negotiated terms they were happy with, completed all inspections, negotiated repairs and moved along smoothly all the way to the settlement table at the end of December.
A couple of days ago my clients and I met for the first time, in Berlin, Germany and I personally delivered the key to their new home in Maryland!
It really didn't feel like our first time meeting, more like getting together with old friends. We enjoyed a lovely dinner and a glass of wine and chatted for a few hours.
My clients were such a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. I feel honored that they chose me to help them purchase a home from half-way around the world.
This transaction is one for the story books and one of the highlights of my career.
Thank you Kyle and Audrey and Welcome Home (soon). I'm looking forward to another meet-up in Maryland!
