A Hand-Delivered Thank You

Hand-delivered, it doesn't get any better!

 

It's been a couple of years since I sold a home for Myra; I affectionately call her my "Admyra." She makes me feel so special, like when she hand-delivered this beautiful poem along with flowers. Myra did not want to disturb me, so she left them on my front porch and texted me. 

I have been trying to think of a way to show my appreciation for this work of art which is so much more than a thank you note. It had folds upon folds and so many verses. 

If you read it, you will understand the amount of time, kindness, thoughtfulness, love, and appreciation that went into the hand-making and hand printing of what I will call my most excellent paycheck ever.

Yep, my Lee used to say I worked for thank you notes. 

And here is one that proves it.

Can you see why I love doing what I do?

Thank you, my 'Admyra!'

Endre Barath, Jr. My advice to young agents, work for thank you notes. Once they start coming in, so will the income.

Margaret- this is the cherry on top of the ice cream sundae in my books. How very thoughtful of your client to write this and deliver it as she did.  This is something so rare today!!!

Margaret Rome Baltimore 410-530-2400 - I am a believer in notecards. I see you are too. I call them magic cards because they put smiles on people's faces and so much better than text, email, or whatever else seems to be popular outside the good old fashioned notecards.

Kathy Streib  This is so rare and so appreciated, better than any cherry on top of the sundae.  I am so lucky to have ‘AdMyra’ in my life. A client, a confidant, and a friend.

Margaret Rome Baltimore 410-530-2400 That is outstanding, truly special and well deserved.  I got goose bumps reading. it.  I always remember what you told me so very long ago:  We work for thank yous.  That, my friend, was more than a thank you.  It should be framed.
