Two Years Later.....Right Place at the Right Time

By
Real Estate Agent with Long & Foster REALTORS®, Manassas, VA VA License # 0225089470

I never work in my office.  I usually work from home.  Today was an exception.  I had some volunteer help to get a large mailing out, and met my volunteer at the office.  I went about my phone calls and daily grind.

Had I not been there, I would have missed this.  A lady I met two years ago at an open house came by today looking for me.   She remembered enough about me to have the receptionist come back and find me.  But had I not been there, she would not have been the kind of person to leave her name and number.  Not a trusting sole.

She's ready to buy her first home!  And she liked me enough to come looking for me.  That made my day.

Chris isn't that wonderful when you find yourself at the Right Place at just the Right Time!  That's wonderful that this individual was guided to come to the office just when you were around.  Best Wishes for continued success in serving her as well.

Well, I just have to put my 2cents in...............do you suppose Chris; that "something" WAY bigger than us had anything to do with that "CO-INK-E-DINK"?

When events like this occur? I have to STOP, LOOK, LISTEN and GIVE THANKS!

Its great that you had the ability to open your heart, and follow the direction THAT DAY that YOU were supposed to and find yourself at the "right place at the right time"

THANK YOU FOR SHARING and CONGRATULATIONS

Keep us posted on your journey to first time home ownership with your new client

Hugs!

I agree with the above comment.  It just can't be coincidence. Good luck.

Patti & Gita:  I totally believe in the fact that everything in our lives happens for a reason.  Call it whatever you want, but there is always something larger at work.

What a great story!  Good thing you were in the office when she stopped by.

Now that's what I call proof that sometimes all things in the universe align to make the unexpected happen!  Conratulations on being the type of agent that clients seek out when they are looking to buy their first home... this story speaks volumes about you!

Glad this happened to you.  Good things still happen at the office from time to time. I had a smiling face walk in the office last week unannounced. A client from 20 years ago. She was moving back after working for a congressman in another city and I was the lucky one and happened to be at the office.

Jeannie, Steve & Trey:  It's always great to get a nice surprise.  Best part was we went out looking at houses two days later.  She's moving right along and I'm so proud to be the one to help her.
