What Was YOUR Best Hero Moment?

What Was YOUR Best "Hero" Moment? Hero

 I was a new agent at the time and just didn't realize how hard some things were. I was working with a young couple, two kids, a cat, 2 dogs. No one wanted to work with them. Were they rude? Uncooperative? Disloyal? No they just wanted to buy using their Cal Vet Loan.

Funding was tough, hard to get. The Cal Vet fund ran out of money many times. Estimated waiting time was 6 months to a year to fund.

Our office had an older property in the country. The owner needed to move. I got him to agree to do a lease while waiting for funding.

Disaster struck. There was a problem with the septic tank/leach fields. The owner helped. We got extensive work done adding more leach lines.

gift wrapped houseWe CLOSED ESCROW!! I went to their open house party. I walked in the door, introduced myself to several people - "Oh, YOU ARE THEIR REAL ESTATE AGENT!! Awe was written on several faces. The new owners were beaming and introduced me to EVERYONE.

I felt 10 feet tall. I was a hero and have never forgotten that moment. I am working with first time buyers again and looking forward to more great moments!

What was YOUR best Hero moment?

Eileen, what a story!  It just shows "hanging on" pays off big in the end in so many different ways.  I know you are their "Realtor for Life". Congratulations.

Those dreaded septic system problems! I just hate it when we have a problem with one. Up here is Mass if you fail the septic inspection you will be looking a tens of thousands of dollars to replace it.

Hi Bill; Yes, I cringe if I find out a home is on septic as it's not that common in this area now. Just getting an inspection report is expensive!

Hi Eileen...

I popped in to make sure you've had a feature and sure enough you have. That's good to see. I wouldn't want to be forced to put a gun to someones head to insure something you wrote got featured :) I've noted You do a mean Tutorial :)

I wish I could link you to my moment but I can't. Way back when we had tag clouds. In an effort to prove how useful tag clouds were, I changed a whole bunch of my tags. Unfortunately, I really messed up when I did that. My biggest mistake was removing pertinent tags so I could make a tag cloud that read: "There's a Booger hanging from your nose. Ha! Ha! Made you look :)

Appropriately enough my human test is: Hackberry :)

TLW...ROAR!
