There was a for sale sign in the front yard. NOT mine!

Okay, sooooo....
 
I was out delivering gifts one day.  Drove up to my Clients home that I'd sold them, and I almost knew it was going to happen as I got close...I turned the corner and there was a for sale sign in the front yard.  NOT mine!
 
I was so surprised it took a few moments for me to collect myself...I had the perfect present picked out to deliver to her.  So, I went ahead and walked up to the door, checking myself....and getting ready to face her despite her listing with another Realtor.
 
I knocked.  She answered.  She invited me in...Her Realtor was actually there!  Her Realtor was someone that She'd met (a very kind woman) at their Church and we all talked.  I talked privately also when the Realtor was doing something in the home and my Client (Her Client) told me that She wanted to help her out. 
 
I was very understanding and was at peace with it.  I still couldn't believe that I was sitting there!
 
A month later She called me.  The listing had expired.  She listed with me and gave me a price reduction.  It was my lucky day.  Sold the home..happy ending for everyone.  I hope that She is enjoying her new life in LA.  ❤

It happens... at the end of day, all's well that ends well, as the old saying goes.

Good morning,  Todd - stuff happens.  Sometimes we know the reasons, sometimes we don't.  Acting/being polite is always possible and the results are often positive.

Boy, that could've gone two ways but you took the high road and was rewarded in the end Todd. It's always best to be nice even when you don't necessarily  want to be. It actually paid to be in this instance. Great story

What was the gift giving occasion? I'm glad this worked out in the end. I think I would have been so shocked I would have driven by the house without stopping.

I believe it was just that time of year where I was delivering presents to have my Clients remember me kind-of-thing... showing them that I remember them.
