Inspirational Post for 2/3/19

Objective: To serve as a good member of ActiveRain and participate in an AR Contest for Lisa Von Domek and provide a second entry in February's challenge  Love Is In The Air contest.

 

Love & Marriage

This is the story of a couple who fell in love. I knew the bride for several years beforehand. Love radiated when she fell in love. You could see ♥. You could feel . You could be happy to hear about her romantic proposal. They got married and lived in a small apartment making many sacrifices, knowing that when that second lease was up, their goal was to buy a house. It didn't have to be big and extravagant, it just had to be adequate enough to fill all the spaces in their home with!

 

Building a Life

 

The first thing the couple did is consulted with me about purchasing a home. I gave them three Lenders to speak to who were credible and had years of experience in the Mortage business. They invested their time in getting educated in the process. Once they were pre-approved, we looked at houses. It isn't that they shunned all possibilities in their price range, they just weren't ready to settle for what was available on the market at that time and they did not want to waste their money on rent. They decided to build and make the sacrifice of staying in their apartment for a little bit longer.  requires patience and so they were ready to wait patiently for construction, to begin with, the builder. 

 

Patience is a Virtue

Building a home takes time, patience, understanding, listening, and learning. Much time is required to stay focused on the goal. They learned that building isn't as easy as 1-2-3. There are many moving parts to building construction. Unfortunately, the weather, zoning, planning, city ordinances, permits, building materials, excavation, utilities, and every aspect of the building process doesn't happen on schedule or when the weather is perfect.  requires patience. Their dream was put off many times before they were ready to move into their new home. During the duration of waiting, like any moving parts are tested. 

 

Results 

and patience conquers all fears. Although sacrifices are many, I am proud to say they had a baby who is now eight years old. Their daughter was born two years after they moved into their new home. The guest room decorated like ♥ in Paris was transformed into a nursery and  continues to grow. Although challenges are many, they are happy in  and ♥ how everything turned out.

The real estate industry plays a significant role in shaping lives, neighborhood communities, schools, places where people can worship, and places where families can live together hopefully, happily ever after. Life really is a walk in the park when is in the air!

Nina Hollander - I think success will depend on how well we respect each other during the process without exerting power and control over another. It truly is an intimate thing between the buyers and that's why so many agents are confused by what they say and what they actually do! I never believed that line, buyers are liars. As a matter of fact, I detest when I hear other agents make that statement. 

I am blessed to be on the journey from beginning to end.

Hi Patricia... I so agree that it's a privilege to let people share their lives with us in this intimate way. I've never used that expression that buyers are liars... mostly because I believe that buyers often just don't know what they want until they see it.

Kristin Johnston - REALTOR® - There sure is a lot of time that goes by when working with buyers who are just getting started thinking they are going to buy a home and decide to build. Time can feel like eternal! And yes! Patience is truly tested!!! But I love the fact the in my case, the reward was worth it and we are still friends. I just got an invitation to visit a couple of weeks ago and it was so wonderful to see the improvements they made to the home and how much their daughter grew! Life is good when you build friends for life!

Patricia, lots of love in this story and not just between your clients but, from you as well. Patience and love can conquer all. We become very immersed in most of our client's lives. It's a big responsibility that has to be handled with endless care but, it's also one of the things I love most about our job.

Patricia even though it was a challenge they knew what they wanted and willing to make the scarifies to achieve their dream.  That is a winning combination, and always a pleasure to be a part of those transactions.

They were so lucky to have you by their side. I am sure you encouraged them when their love and patience was tested. Sometimes part of our job is helping them understand the process and each other during the house purchase life. I know you did a good job with this lovely couple who became a loving family.

I'm sure you helped guide them through the process. Like you said, it takes time, patience, understanding and more when buying or building a home. Such a sweet story and I'm glad you played a large role in assisting your clients with their new home.
