Heartbroken..................

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

Yesterday my trip to Alaska for June was suspended. They call it suspended rather than canceled to try and keep hope alive, and in my view, retain the monies already paid. I reached out to my contact to try and get the monies paid refunded now. I have dealt with this person, a Vice President, for about twenty years. Earlier I got a call from someone else saying my contact, my friend was no longer with the company. I am simply heartbroken. I don't know what his status is but I am simply heartbroken.

When you think about real estate, it is time to focus. I have helped people for close to thirty years in all areas, and made the process not only simple but enjoyable. Why should you go it alone or settle for less? Call me and find a partner to help, direct and get you where you want to be.

Here is hoping you are able to establish another contact who understands the importance of fostering great customer service. I can understand the disappointment in losing a virtual friend. D

Hello Debb. It was more about my friend being gone than the group with whom I travel. The man I spoke to was very nice. TY and stay well.     Sheila

Hope you can find out how your friend is doing to put your mind at rest, maybe you can track him down with LinkedIn.

That is good to hear that all is well with him and the story probably doesn't matter.  Hopefully, things will get better sooner rather than later and you will still get to make your trip as planned.

You have had more than your fair share of disappointment. The universe owes you something.

You are very kind Joe. I am OK, but sad for those whose situation is dire. I only want this to peak and be done with already. TY and stay well.

Sheila- it's always hard when someone you've been dealing with for years is no longer there. I too had that happen recently.

I'm not planning any travel for the time being.  We simply don't know when this pandemic will loosen its control of our lives.  I do hope you get your refund, Sheila.

Morning Sheila.

I'm sure he is doing well.  I do hope you will get to take the trip, as I suspect this will be over by mid May, or early June
