Today I spoke with a client that is preparing her home for listing. The home was custom built and each detail was carefully selected with the utmost care. This is more than just a compilation of stone and wood, this is a special place that she has called home for a very long time.
As I have walked beside her during this pre-listing stage, I have been honored to be invited into the memories that shall forever be held in her heart.
We have discussed the depersonalization phase with gentleness and the utmost tenderness. I have encouraged her to take the needful time to lovingly remove the family photos and awards from the walls. I have recommended that she embrace the process of reminiscing about the wonderful events and celebrations that are beautifully displayed in each precious photo.
She was expecting this to be a "hard season" - yet she just called to tell me that she has been pleasantly surprised at how much she has actually enjoyed this process. She said that she had become so accustomed to seeing the photos on the wall that she rarely paused to really look at them.
Now that the very personal items have been boxed, she is feeling a sense of excitement about transferring these special treasured photos to her new home. She is also wondering what new photo memories may be added to these walls by the new buyers.
She is welcoming this next chapter with expectancy.
Home lives within our heart - and is carried with us wherever we are!
