The Text Message that Made My Day

 

I have lovely clients whose home in the Timberline community of Mission Viejo I sold two years ago.  I'd met the wife at an open house seven years before they listed their home with me.  

 

Here's the text message I received from the wife today:

 

"Two years ago this Memorial weekend, you did the unthinkable and sold our house.  So grateful and happy!!  I use your vases a lot and send you a hug every time.  Have a great day."

 

These clients ended up as friends, of course.  How could they not?!  

 

Whenever I'm in the state where they now live, they invite me to visit.  I've only been able to get there once, but it's so nice that such a warm relationship developed with what started as an open house visit and a real estate transaction.

 

These folks are quality people through and through.  I'm happy to count them as friends.

Fortunately there are many great stories and great relationships that have come about in real estate practice...it's the best payoff.

Two years later that's impressive. And for a sale no less. Usually you expect it on a house they are currently living in.

 

Great job!
