When I first meet a client I always remind them what I am not…financial adviser, real estate atty, home inspector, architect, lender, professional photographer and the list could go on. I know my limitations and I surround myself with ethical, talented, experienced professionals for those roles. There is no training for the some of the situations I experience when I am working for my clients.
EXAMPLES: Downsizing, Divorce, Relocation, Family Illness, Helping children make an easy transition to a new school, Helping following spouse with ideas for career change, coming to a new country…..and the list continues with each client …
I have helped this 95 year old downsize so many times. My brother and I have learned so much about downsizing and getting rid of stuff. Experience is such a good teacher.
Of course this Brutus is my mother and I just delivered her Halloween costume.
Our youngest daughter, Emily was just home for her Birthday. This plate hangs on the wall in our pantry and has been used for many celebrations. As I was putting it back on the wall, I was thinking, will this end up at Goodwill Store or treasured by a family member. These experiences help me have a HEART for my clients. Just recently I have been helping a retired couple returning to OHIO. They have made several trips back and we have looked at many properties. They apologize for taking so much of my time…the truth is I enjoy my time with them and they are teaching me what is involved in selecting your truly, forever home!
I LOVE my helping my Clients, Learning, and Being the BEST Realtor I can be!
