Please join me in welcoming Don & Trish Schmitt to Michigan.
In early September of 2008 I received a phone call from Don Schmitt and we had the first
of many nice long chats. He and his wife Trish were ready to relocate from their home of
many years in Buffalo NY and come to Michigan to be close to their daughter in their retirement
years. (Their daughter is also expecting their first grandchild!) Who said that those of us not
under 50 don't read blogs or use the Internet? Shh! Don't tell me that, or Don & Trish!
During our first phone chat Don told me that he found my website via a web search, and
consequently found the link to my blog. He and Trish read articles that I had written
and in Dons words said "We should give her a call."
I wish I could put into words how much that first phone call meant to me. Meeting Don & Trish
and being a part of their dream to be close to their daughter has been exciting and fulfilling.
From the first time we met we enjoyed each others company immensely. Finding their new home,
helping them find a wonderful mortgage representative here in Michigan, being there for their home inspection and finally the celebration of closing on their new home was one of the most enjoyable
processes that I've been a part of.
Not only was I able to make sure that they were taken care of here and ensure that their home
buying process was as stress free and smooth as possible, but my husband and I now have new
Don & Trish moved in to their Chesterfield Township home in time for a Christmas celebration with
their daughter and son-in-law and have settled in nicely. I know we are going to enjoy the coming
years with them and treasure the new friendship that we have made - all due to the power of the
Internet and blogging. Without this we wouldn't have found each other.
