Love is in the Air Part (3)

Industry Observer

I met this lovely young couple in the middle of the month, last month. They were so sweet and would fit perfectly in this neighborhood of really nice people. We met a couple of times and then they went and came back and decided that they wanted to buy a Sitterle Home. I stayed late on evening with them and went over various options. They told me that they would do something before the end of February. We had found them the lot, the plan. We were set or were we? The sweet young couple came in this past Saturday to tell me that his job was on the line and that they really wanted the home but with his job in jeopardy they could just not move forward, but they felt that they owed me this explanation in person as I had been so good to them.

I was astonished this so rarely happens people just fall of the face of the earth, or if you call them they are not nice or just do not answer. I thought I really want these two in the neighborhood because that is the kind of people that we have here nice, sweet and honest.

I came to find out that one of the people here is in the business that the young man is in, so I told him to send me his resume. I finally received it today and I will pass it on and hopefully they can find him a stable job. So, this story is not over yet, but whether they buy from me or not if I can help someone get on their feet financially then good Karma will come!

Hello Yolanda - I'll hope that this couple get good news, news that allows them to take that step into home ownership. You've made a raving fan of them, I'm sure. Good job!

Job stability, and jobs that pay living wage have been an issue for quite some time.  I wish they the very best of luck in the future.

Hmm, at first I was thinking that you got the chance to help Mickey and Minnie Mouse buy a home, that would have been cool.  Very nice story my friend and I hope all works out well for them.

I appreciate when a client/prospect tells me why they cannot or choose not to move forward with a property. Recently a young lady called to tell me she had to put her home purchase on hold and why. It makes you want to do more for them, just like you did with the resume'.
