I sold a semi neglected home in June of 2008 to a family from the Netherlands who had a vision of what they could transform the home into. It was a short sale and I put the deal together in less than a month. I visited the property as they were tearing up the old nasty carpet, fixing the leaky pool (which they also had to turn from green to clear), painting, putting up fans and chandeliers where the others had been yanked out, furnishing and adding personal touches and what a gorgeous transformation the end result is. My buyers sent me their website and they have booked over 18 weeks at this point.
This is why I really love my job!
