A Heartfelt Thank You From an Out-Of-State Seller

Real Estate Agent with Front Gate Real Estate Broker 11085

"Thanks for a job well-done."

"Thanks for all your hard work"

"You were such fun to work with. Thank you!"


Everyone appreciates a pat on the back, or an "atta-boy" for their job performance. It's no different for real estate professionals. It gives us a warm fuzzy feeling when clients take the time to compliment us or write a review on our behalf.


I received a heartfelt thank you from an out-of-state seller who found me online and needed to settle his sisters estate.


This is what he wrote: 


Pat, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all you did for me in selling my sister's house. You were a God send. I never thought I would find an agent like you.

This was a new experience for me but you lead me through it. It even became fun after a while!Thank you card

I wish you all the best and maybe our paths will cross again. I hope so.

It does make me feel great, Grant Schneider, we all love to be appreciated for our efforts.

My clients have a good time while house shopping and home selling, Carol Williams, that's what they get with me. We take care of business, but have fun while doing so.

Thanks Debe Maxwell, CRS. The transaction wasn't very stressful, just a few last minute repairs that had to be taken care of before closing. But it sure is nice to be appreciated for your efforts.
