Following up on my vow in yesterday's "Happy Birthday, Long Hollow" post, I'm going to try to share more "short and sweet"s here rather than dumping it all at once on you. We'll see how that goes...
I can't describe how it feels to help someone move closer to their dreams...especially someone you've known for almost twenty years...
... someone who helped you get a job when you needed to pay for kids' braces and drivers education...
...someone who is just one of the sweetest people you've ever met.
When I got the phone call this evening letting me know my friend Kim's offer on an adorable home was the one accepted out of a four-offer situation, I really couldn't believe it. In fact, my phone rang three times before I answered it, because I expected to hear "I'm so sorry, but..."
Instead, I heard, "Congratulations..."
Pinch me. I must be dreaming!
This was actually the second house we'd tried for. The first went into multiple offers right away, as well. Would you believe this latest house had only been on the market 1 day?
It's crazy around here, folks, I'm telling you.
Before getting into real estate, I asked all of my Realtor friends to share their input. One friend had loved it, but had eventually gotten a job with a steady paycheck and set hours. "You work 24/7", she told me.
But I was already working 24/7, and not making any money. It was worth a try, especially in a job where I could help people.
Some days are tough, I'll admit. But days like today make it all worthwhile.
