Yesterday I was in the office when my cell phone rang. I didn’t recognize the number, but it showed a name I thought I recognized.
Just like Hannah Williams, I had a real estate instructor, when I first started, tell us: “always answer your phone and smile, as it can be heard on the other end.” When I answered the caller stuttered and said “you answered your phone! You sound just like the enthusiast agent I remember. This is Amanda Lee, a blast from the past! You sold our home in Canyon Creek 14 years ago, and we moved to Fairfax Virginia.”
As it turns out her mom still lives in Austin, in another community, in a single-story home. She is almost 85 and needs to move in with them as soon as they can arrange it. I met with them before they headed back to Virginia so I could see the house and give them some advice on what needs to be done.
It was so good to see them again! They lived on my street in Canyon Creek and took my advice to update the appliances etc. to ready their home for sale. It sold in 3 days for top dollar and their two little girls took my flier and wrote on it “Miss Dorie sold our home in 3 days” and passed it out to neighbors!
The best advertisement ever!!!
