Tears of joy
One of the most satisfying parts of my job is helping people find and purchase a home they love.
Some clients don't find them right away. I have 2 clients with whom I've been working off and on for over a year who are finally under contract on homes they love.
Other clients find them right away, like Gail & George. They called about a listing my team had so I showed the home (and 3 others in the neighborhood) to them. They called me a week or 2 later about another community they drove through and liked so I showed them several homes there, and that's where they found "the one". Just 2 times out with them and we found the right home for them.
We wrote an offer, negotiated a bit with the sellers, and the deal was done. When I called Gail to congratulate them on their new home, I could hear the crack in her voice as she said "Thank you". She became overcome with emotion and began to softly cry tears of joy.
