This is the story of another home I sold twice and got paid once. But I always do what it takes to close. Some agents get upset, throw in the towel and walk away, and I've never understood that attitude. My promise to my sellers is I will do whatever it takes and for however long it takes to sell their home. Sometimes buyers cancel and we have to sell again. It is not our fault. It is the buyer's fault.
But after closing this sale with the second set of buyers, I can't say it all went smoothly. We had glitches with the lender and the buyers messed up signing. After it closed, I texted the agent on the other side to see if everything was OK because I was genuinely concerned. Her response, well, let's just say it made me regret even asking. When will people learn they should not cut off their nose to spit their face because that attitude gets them further from where they hope to be?
Ha, ha, probably never. A hospital restaurant worker told me yesterday I was the epitome of happiness. She said I exuded happiness and she could tell I was very happy person. Don't know why she said that because I had to wait 3 hours for Mercy Hospital to admit my husband for a routine procedure. For which he had an appointment. 3 hours in that waiting room! Slightly irritated that my husband had not the good sense to pick UC Davis for a provider, I imagine that was what was going through my head.
