It is such a great treat to get a review like this!
It is always a joy to work with clients whom you like - to be a part of their life changes! I've seen this client through dating, marriage, the birth of children and three houses! I've kept in touch with him through Facebook and Linked In and with in person coffees and occasional pop-bys.
The privilege of being part of a client's life as they navigate major changes, to being able to contribute to smooth transitions, to helping them make good financial decisions are some of the best things about our careers in real estate.
I always enjoy the search for the perfect next home. It is fun to help clients refine what they are looking for in their next home and then mirroring those criteria as they look at properties. I honestly don't think that we looked at 60 homes each of the last two times - although there were days when it seemed like it - but those excursions were made fun by meeting his two new dogs and introducing him to my new pup, Captain.
While we looked at properties together, we saw some great homes which we lost out on in multiple bids - and we saw some real dogs, which unfortunately were not of the four legged kind! We saw some beautifully staged properties and we saw some decorating choices that gave us great chuckles. Again - it is one of the fun things about being a residential Realtor. It is a new day every morning with new places to visit and new people to meet!
The opportunity to help people like Oliver - multiple times - is particularly enjoyable when you know that you really are a part of their life's journey!
