When the phone rang early this morning, the plaintive voice on the other end said, “I miss you so much!”
“I miss you, too,” I said, gently sympathizing with my Buyer who had purchased a home last month.
“No, you don’t understand. I REALLY MISS YOU! You and I had this intense relationship. Dan and I didn’t think we’d ever be able to buy a house, and you made it happen. We spoke to each other every day, sometimes several times a day. You needed something, I got to bring it to you and see you. For over a month, I depended on you for so many things. I don’t want to sound weird or anything, but I’m having serious withdrawal pangs.”
We met an hour later, and she hugged me for well over a minute. We talked for about 45 minutes, and as I laughed with her and heard all of her funny stories about their new neighbors and how much happier she and her husband were now that they had their own house and how happy the dog was in their new yard and how she was taking dinners to the invalid next door, I realized that this is a big part of the reason that we do what we do.
It’s the lives we touch, the impact we have to shape lives for the better that keeps us motivated, even in these changing real estate times. This young lady will be a special part of my heart for a very long time, and I know that I have made a serious impact on their life.
