Mothers Know Best...Sometimes...

Real Estate Agent with EXP Realty 414-525-0563 57026-90 Broker

. We recently sold a home that we have loved for years...We had sold it to the Seller who had done great things with the house. The once tiny kitchen grew into a kitchen/dinette with new cabinetry, seating area and plenty of counter space. The hardwood floors restored to their original shining luster...the upstairs finished with built in desks in the bedrooms warnimont and an updated bath...everyone who saw it fell in love with it.  It did look like Hansel & Gretel could have lived there...such storybook detail with arched doorways...and picture perfect "curbalicious" appeal.

   Multiple offers and clamors for more showings ...was the offer solid...would we please call kthe lengthy list of anxious would be buyers if the transaction fell apart, etc., etc.

    The lucky buyer happened to be our Buyer...a first timer who was a recent Veterinarian grad and working third shift taking care of all the dearly beloved four footeds who sometimes choose "after business hours" to need attention to their health. She LOVED the house...and having looked for a while...she had her heart set on making this her Fur-Ever home with her feline companion. 

   The Buyer's family lived in another state a later time zone away. They had a Realtor friend there who was "watching" the house on the internet and called the Buyer's Mom to report that the house had an offer.  Mom did what Mother's do...and made copious notes to comfort her daughter for what she knew would be a tearful disappointing phone call.  The evr fanous "everything happens for a reason"..."a better house will come along"...the list continued as she waited for the dreaded call.

   Meanwhile, back in Wisconsin...we sent the former "shopper" now lucky Buyer a text to give us a call when she woke up later that day. Call she did...and the excitiement was contagious !  She had to call her Mom the good news,,,she was the Buyer for her dream house.

   Mom saw her daughter's number on caller ID and the lump in her throat grew larger as she cleared her throat and prepared to comfort her duaghter.  Comfort was not the order of the was CONGRATULATIONS ! 

     Mom's DO know best...they are always prepared...for the best or the worst,...and in this case...for the Happily Ever After.

     This has been personal experience post brought to you by Sally K. & David L. Hanson, Broker Associates with EXP Realty honored to be of service for all things real estate in southeastern Wisconsin.

Happy endings are the best endings!  Receiving multiple offers is always great, but as you note, it is sometimes difficult to be certain the right offer is being accepted and will perform as promised.

Good morning Sally. I saw this home on Facebook and was charmed. There was a very similar one in my area of New Jersey that I always admired. As for the Mom.......that's another story but glad she wound up happy too.
