Better Than A Paycheck!

I just got a nice paycheck. I mean, thank you note. More than a year ago I started working with these wonderful sellers, and we went through some challenging times together. But letters like this are what keep me going. And isn't that what real estate is all about?

Josef, These sellers made a very difficult situation, a joy. Everyone should have an opprotunity to work with the likes of April and Marianna.

There is nothing better than a letter like that from a client.  It makes the check seem like gravy - the comments are what keeps us going!

I commented once to a client that I saved her letter to read on days when things were difficult - she said that I should also read it on days that were great - so that they would be even greater.

Congratulations, Margaret.  I keep notes like this on hand for those days that leave me feeling "not so fresh".  They truly are better than a paycheck.

Congrats on the thank you note!  I LOVE getting thank you notes!  Getting thank you notes, buying settlement gifts and seeing the expression on a buyer's face when they find "their" home are the highlights for me.

Margaret, though many of us are "Thanked" by our clients, so few bother to put it in writing. If they only knew how much it meant to us! Congratulations, you deserve all that you get!!!

Margaret - Hasty notes, nice thank you notes and cards, long letters of appreciation ... these are a few of the real rewards of a lifetime in real estate. It's amazing how a few moments of time from a thankful client reminds us what we love best about this business ...  "Those we help"

Hi Margaret, Well from reading your lovely thank you note, you sure had a great connection w/ your clients... medicine, Type E personalities, & chocolate!

I enjoy getting thank you notes from clients. It means so much when they email or take pen to paper and snail mail it off to me.

I sometimes kid people that I would do this for free for all the other benefits we receive. Your testimonial prooves it.

Ty, This paycheck thank you note was written a year ago. Thanks for bringing it back to life. Just called these wonderful people to say how fortunate not to sell this house in this blizzard!
