The phone rings, and I see the number is from Connecticut. I answered the phone...
The man on the other end identifies himself.
He says he had been recommended to me.
"First off I want to make a few things very clear...
I'm going to be a big pain in the "you know what!
I'm going to need somebody to help my wife and I relocate and we are going to be "really needy".
We've never done this before!
We need someone who has patience and understanding.
We are putting our house on the market up here in Connecticut very soon.
We don't know anything about selling...
We don't know anything about buying...
We are going to need alot of hand holding if you know what I mean.
Are you up for the challenge?
Can you help us?"
Now I know for a fact that many Realtors would run for the hills after hearing all of that, but no not me! I have been known to have the patience of a Saint... and love working with Seniors.
These buyers were able to successfully sell their home in Connecticut in a very short time, and were able to purchase a brand new home which exceeded their expectations and totally within their budget.
They listened to me very carefully and when I suggested that they hurry and fly down to find a home before the spring selling season was in full swing, they listened.
We were able to beat the rush and find them a brand new home in a brand new community.
This home is the home of their dreams. Their forever home here in Florida.
We still keep in touch. They say that they wished they had moved sooner...
Everyone is happy.
It's February and Love Is in the Air...
