Valentines contest. I helped a woman in need find a condo without expecting a fee.

This is post  3f or the active rain challenge this month about transactions that we loved.

I received a call from a woman many years ago. She had three kids and lived in a nice single house with her husband.  Unfortunately they decided to separate and the girls would be living with her. She wanted to be close enough to her husband so that the kids could visit her ot her husband depending on the schedules.

The woman wanted to find a rental in the same school district.It was not easy to find rentals. There was a condo community close by but there were no rentals in the mls. I knew of an investor who owned a few units there and he never listed them. He used to rent them out him self. I looked up his number and called him. 

He said he does not give commission but a unit had just become available. I called the woman and told her about it. She went there and looked at it and rented it .

I did not expect any commission . It was just a good feeling that I could help someone in need.

Gita and I was hoping that the person you helped would turn around and either pay your commission or give you some wonderful gifts or referrals... but I can dream right?:))Endre
