Grateful for My Loyal Clients They Bring me Joy

Real Estate Agent with HomeStarr Realty RS143922A

I am incredibly grateful for my loyal clients who have supported me. Many of them have become my dear friends, and it warms my heart when they tell me that I'm like family to them, as they are to me. This year, the turmoil worldwide has left me feeling saddened. When I hear from my loyal clients, it brings me joy. More joy than cooking and watching season two of How  Julia Child Started Her Cooking show years ago is on HBO Max, which I enjoyed made me think.

I am fortunate to work in a profession that allows me to connect with people on a personal level and form lasting friendships. People trust me with their homes, and it is a purchase they do not make often in their lifetime. It's where they eat, sleep, and live their lives. We share information, laughter, disagreements, jokes, disappointments, and dreams through interactions. It's no wonder that we often become friends in the process.

People who know me know I love to cook. It is one of my hobbies, and you will see my recipes for Hannah Banana Bread. I change it around as I am always experimenting. I could have posted my homemade cranberry sauce this year, but I will post it as I purchased a turkey to cook later. My friend Endre Barath, Jr.will post his recipes also.  




I want to express my genuine appreciation to all my clients and fellow real estate associates. Your unwavering support throughout my career has been invaluable to me, and I am deeply grateful for every phone call, text message, and email I receive from you. Your gestures of kindness and consideration, even when it's just a simple "hello," indeed mean a lot to me.

This is my 4th entry to Debe Maxwell, CRS gratitude challenge.  I am grateful to her for inspiring me.

Believe it or not Hannah I am also grateful to my unloyal clients. I have learned so much from them they will never understand 🙂

Good morning Hannah. Loyal clients are a dream come true but like Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS I got something out of those who were not loyal that improved my performance when active. Those lessons carried on into retirement. Can't wait for one of your banana bread recipes. Enjoy your day.

Wayne Martin,  I am a straight shooter. I remember one client screaming at me because a seller took a key out of the lockbox. They were screaming so loud that the neighbors came outside to see what was going on. I tried to explain that it was not my fault, but they would have none. 

They did not understand why I did not want to work with them anymore when they called me to show them houses again.
