Did You Ever Have a Seller that was hard to Say Good-Bye to?

 

I recently sold a house and the seller has moved out of state to be with her family.

It was a perfect transaction; house sold within 7 days and we got better than asking price. We closed on the 30th day. This was almost a perfect textbook transaction. Everyone was happy when it closed; agents, seller and buyer. What could be better?

 

But….I miss my seller. She was one of the loveliest clients I have ever had. Right from day 1, she asked me what she needed to do to sell her home fast. She followed all my suggestions I gave her about packing stuff away, purging unneeded items, and making the home look less cluttered and even more beautiful. We worked together so smoothly and we had mutual trust and respect for each other.

 

She had many friends in her neighborhood and I found myself wishing I had a neighbor like her even though I do have lovely neighbors too. She has moved on, and will be very happy with her new life and I am so glad for her. I am guessing her neighbors miss her too.

 

In the last couple of days before closing, she gave me a few items from her backyard that were designated to go to the dump or thrift shop.

 

When I am in my backyard filling the bird feeders and see the beautiful geraniums and marigolds growing in the ceramic pots, I think of what a sweet lady she is and wish her and her family the best of luck for a long and happy life together©.

I haven't had quite your experience yet, but I did have a short sale seller I'm still good friends with. I even helped her find a place to open up her new business. At least you have some nice reminders of a wonderful person.

Kristin yes I've had many sellers over the years that  I still keep in touch with.  And I do miss the ones that became friends.  This lady sounds like a real sweetheart.  What a gift!

Kristin, great job and yes I know we go through a lot with our clients which make it hard not to see them regularly after the transaction. Best of luck for the rest of the year.

Hi Debbie

Yes, I have some short sale people who were my very first buyers when I started real estate. Unfortunately I had to list their home for short sale and we did complete it with B of A. We have stayed in touch and they are so nice. I just wish all my buyers and sellers were as nice as these.

I am so glad you have had the same experience will clients.

Hi Cal,

Yes it does make it hard but we find new clients who we like too. This particular seller was one in a million.

Happy Tuesday.

Hi David,

You are so right. It is the ones that make this job worth while. My former career was mostly negative so I finally decided it was time to move on and deal with nice people for a change. Once in a while I have nasty clients but most of the time nice.

Working with Kelly is a good move!

Such a nice story.  I find that the majority of my buyers/sellers stay in touch and I can truly say they are friends.  Just another reason I so love my job!
