I helped a woman find a rental in a day.

This post for the active rain challenge this month about transactions that we loved.

I received a call from a woman many years ago. She had three kids and lived in a nice single house with her husband.  Unfortunately they decided to separate and the girls would be living with her. She wanted to be close enough to her husband so that the kids could visit her ot her husband depending on the schedules.

The woman wanted to find a rental in the same school district.It was not easy to find rentals. There was a condo community close by but there were no rentals in the mls. I knew of an investor who owned a few units there and he never listed them. He used to rent them out him self. I looked up his number and called him. 

He said he does not give commission but a unit had just become available. I called the woman and told her about it. She went there and looked at it and rented it .

I did not expect any commission . It was just a good feeling that I could help someone in need.

Gita, That was good thinking on your part.  Some of the most rewarding transactions I have done were rentals.

Great job in finding a rental for this woman, Gita.  Especially since this was done with no compensation.

Good for you Gita. We don't have to be paid for everything we do. Sometimes the good feeling is enough.
