Can you believe that we are near the end of 2016? This year is really over in a less than 48 hours. I am one who is excited about 2017. 2016 was a great year, ready to rock 2017! Thanks to all who were apart of 2016!
This weekend has been an adventurous one. It started with a closing for my client at 2pm. Now when I met Billy last year, at our consultation he mentioned that when he purchased this house he would propose to his girlfriend. I was like “Oh my gosh. That would be amazing!”. Then the woman in me came out and was like, “are you strictly choosing the house or will she be with us?” He informed me she’d be along the journey. Woman we are very particular and our happily ever after home has to be perfect for us. Yes, the notion of gifting a house as part of the proposal is sweet but it can’t be any house.
So I was determined to help find the happily ever after home. Mind you Chelsie did not know about this part. She just knew they were going to buy a house and she wanted a yard big enough for a pool. I was able to say let’s do a master-planned community that has a pool to keep costs low for you guys.
It was then that we found a community outside of Lancaster, Texas that fit their needs. Building a new home takes so time so I completely forgot about Billy’s gesture. It wasn’t until Friday came and he was like today is my birthday. What a sweet birthday present as you close on your new home! He looks at me again and was like today is the big day. Suddenly I remembered and was equally excited.
He had the place and time down to the science. The place: their new home. The time: Around 6:30 to 7 when all their family members would be present to come view the home.
I rushed back down to be apart of this experience because it feels good when your clients welcome you into their world outside of buying their home. I always say real estate is so much more than opening doors and collecting a check. There is a bond that is built and my clients really become my extended family after the transaction.
Here are some snippets from that day which included a brand new home, marriage proposal, and a birthday celebration! What a Happy Day!!!
That’s 1 down and 35 to crown in 2016. Congratulation Billy and Chelsie! Wishing you guys the best to come with your future marriage, family, and now home.
In this addition of “Crowned” I wanted to showcase a recent home I sold for a lovely couple who I adored. The name of this home is “The Clack Manor”. The Georges’ name everything and each name showcased their loved for their homes and other things that made a home a home for them.
What I loved the most about working on the sale of this home is the relationship that I built with the clients. They invited us to spend Memorial Day weekend with their family and of course food is my yes to just about anything. It was a splendid weekend being with their family as we prepped for the sale of The Clack Manor.
The best thing about real estate is the relationships that you form from the process. It can be stressful in so many ways but the relationship and factors that help ease it are the bonus for me.
Congratulations to The Georges on the sale of The Clack Manor and I wish them bliss on their new home (I forgot the name of it but believe when I say it has a title as well).
