I hear so many REALTORS® use the slogan, "Your REALTOR® for Life". Do they mean it when they say it? I don't use the slogan, but that is my hope and my intention when I sell a home. I want to become an important part of my clients' lives. Someone they think of right off the bat when homes or real estate is the subject.

I have only been selling homes about eleven years, but some of my clients are on their third house. I helped the Smiths buy that three bedroom starter home. Four years later when they were expecting their first child, I helped them sell that starter home and buy something a little larger. A few years later, with baby number two already here, they needed four bedrooms and a finished basement. Now with family in place, they are looking for a small vacation cabin, maybe a place in Brown County, Indiana where the leaves turn beautiful golds and oranges in the fall. A place to take the family on weekends. Technically, that makes house number four.
I am now selling to some of the grown children of families I have served in the past. How can this be in such a short time span? The children I once helped choose which bedroom would be theirs are now coming to me for help with their starter home!
It doesn’t stop at two generations. Grandparents are heading this way to be closer to children and grandchildren. I am helping them buy what we all know will be their final resting place. Three generations of the same family. Amazing…….
I had not given this much thought until thinking about writing this post. What an honor and a privilege to play such an important role in the lives of those I have served.
I am sure it is happening to many of you reading this. Have you ever thought about your legacy? Some of you have been selling for 40+ years. One can only imagine what kind of history you have established with your clients.
