How real estate has changed my life, forever!!

By
Real Estate Agent with Carpenter Realtors

I had my house on the market with a local real estate agent before I had even considered it as a career. This was my first home and was very proud it. One day, my agent told me that we had a showing scheduled for 4pm, but I told her that I would be getting home about that time to let my puppy out after a long day inside while I was at work. Well, I got home at regular time and rushed trying to let the puppy out, and trying to staighten things up before my agent and the young lady arrived. Sure enough, no sooner did I take the puppy outside here comes my agent with the young lady and her family. I said hello to everyone and stayed outside to let everyone feel comfortable about looking around. As the showing concluded, my agent said to come on in even though the young lady and her family was still inside. I walked inside with the puppy by my side and right away the puppy started to jump on everyone as any excited puppy would do, so I leaned down to pick the little puppy up, and just then looked up to actually see the young lady for the first time close up. WOW, this was the most beautiful woman that I had ever set my eyes on before. It was just like one of those fairy tale stories that you hear about as a kid, only better, it was happening to me. Once the young lady and her family left, it was just my agentand I, I asked her what her name was and if she could tell me anything more about her. She told me that she was a couple years older than me, was a firefighter, and was looking for her first home. A day went by before I heard anything about the showing and the amazing woman that came to see it. I recieved the call from my agent saying that we had an offer, and the beautiful woman wanted to know if I would be able to come with the house! Needless to say, I did sale the house to that amazingly, beautiful woman that eventually became my wife and we are still in that house in Greenfield still today. We have 3 kids and have tripled the size of the home we met in to be able to fit everyone including the pets. It was because of that little house in Greenfield Indiana that everything that I have ever wanted in life came true, and I am so furtunate that God has truly blessed my, I meant our house!
