I felt the need to share this all with you. In these times when our business is slow we are all a little down. It doesn't help when you have ten listings , no one looking at them and your seller calling you everyday upset with you. Those type of clients are common, but every once and awhile we get someone who truly appreciates our efforts. I am working with a man who recently lost his parents. We have just put his parents home on the market. The home was in need of updating. I took it upon myself to start get prices for all the updates and just suggested that we make at least a few of them. This gentleman is a true pleasure to deal with. He understands the market we are in and so appreciates all my hard work. His attorney passed a comment, that all us realtors are the same that we are paid way too much for the work we do. My client told me that he replied, not my realtor. she has gone way beyond the call of duty. She is always keeping me abreast of what is going on and if she wanted more of a commision I would pay her extra. The reason I am sharing this is that when we are positive... things do happen. I am in the process of removing all the wallpaper & having the rooms painted. Next is the carpeting. With some extra effort, I am confident this home will sell. It felt so wonderful to remember how it truly feels to be appreciated, I now remember the reason why I am in this business.
Let's all try to think positive, keep our heads up and help each other through this rough period. Together we will all get through this.
