The Journey to Your New Front Door

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Charlemagne International Properties BRE# 01147470

The journey from prospective buyer to inserting the key in your new front door can be short and sweet (somewhat rare) or rather long with many twists and turns (more common since The Great Financial Fiasco of 2008). There are always a few war stories, and they often get better with each retelling, created along the path to homeownership. Great friendships are also one of the many side benefits.

 

A two and one half-year search culminated yesterday when I passed the key to two people my son and I met as strangers (Josh met them at an open house in 2009) and became quite fond of with the passage of time. Their visits to this country were infrequent but it was clear their intentions were to purchase a home in Palos Verdes. Our goal was to help them make an informed and wise choice.

 

Yesterday they achieved their goal, and so did we.

Norma, congratulations on achieving your goal. Two years ago I had phone communication with a family from another country for a year before they arrived and bought a house.
