A recommendation to End All Recommendations
When I met Karen and Lee it was in their usual venue - helping somebody. The house I had sold next door to them was a big house and the neighbors needed help, so Karen and Lee were there to do whatever needed to be done. In this neighborhood of custom homes, they had lived next door to each other for nearly 30 years. Karen told me that her dream was to sell her Bellflower home and buy a home in Grass Valley, so I was thrilled when she called and asked me to list her beautiful home. It was so well maintained and so unusual that I knew selling this home would be a joy.
As with selling any home, I had the opportunity to spend lots of time with Karen and Lee and get to know them. Karen does amazing needlework and her home was a showplace. I experienced the joy and anxiety as they shopped for just the right house. When they finally found it, there was no doubt in my mind Karen's Bellflower home would soon be replaced in her heart.
Karen found her dream home on a huge lot, on a golf course, lots of trees, deer - even a stream and a gazebo. Like other clients who pursued their dreams, for me it was bitter sweet. I love to see the realization of the dream and I know that our friendship will change as we become friends and pen pals. When I asked Karen if I could use her as a reference she said "that would be wonderful, you must tell them we would recommend you to sell God's property...we love you".
Now there's a recommendation! Thank you so much Karen and Lee, for letting me share your dream. We miss you guys.
