I had a tremendous experience in December that really helped me realize why I do what I do – that is, why I am a Realtor. I helped my daughter and her boyfriend purchase their first home. There were a few ups and downs during the search, like the time we pulled up to a home to view and there were shingles all over the ground! Yikes! And there were a few things that had to get cleared for the lender, like them thinking my credit card was a second credit card of my daughter’s. We made it through and sat at the closing table at 5:30 PM on a Wednesday (with a great and accommodating attorney, I might add), so that she and her boyfriend could become the owners of their first home. Since then there has been painting, new appliances, painting, new flooring, painting, new garage door opener – oh, and did I mention painting?
They are happy to be in a place they can call their own and in a property where they can build equity rather than paying rent. More importantly, they are in a home where they can make memories and build a life. That is why I do what I do – to help people achieve their dreams and goals, whatever those may be. Yes, I also do it because my husband suggested it all those years ago, but I do it because I like to help. I like being a help to those that want to buy a new home or second home/condo for new memories with the people important to them, or help those selling their home where they have made lots of memories to move on to the next stage of their lives. I like helping by explaining the process, by showing properties, by showing people around this great area, by helping people determine their options, by just being there to help.
