Why am I doing this? This was a question my buyer client asked me as we were leaving the lawyers office after a smooth closing. She noted that yes, she assumed I made some money, but she said it appeared that it was a lot more than that. I thought about it and I had to agree, it is a lot more than the money.
I know we often say that, but today it really hit me. This was a couple in their first home, expecting babies (triplets), and the smile on their face as they got the keys to the house was so strong it could light up any room. The parents were there also and it was just a very happy time. I am already invited to the house warming, and to be notified when the babies come so I can again visit.
Maybe I have been lucky, but all my past clients have been just great to work with and I am having fun. I spent most of my life in the corporate world, consulting, and it was good, it was also fun, but if I knew then what I know now, I believe I would have gone into real estate and would have had even more fun (and money), and a great expanded family of friends. Too often we get too smart too late.
Anyone else really just get up and look forward to working with their clients?? Or am I just crazy??
