Yesterday just made my day! What was it you might ask? It was all about client relationships. And that tells you that you must be doing something very right.
I was told when I started this business, just build good client relationships. That not only sounded like sage advice but it also fit Who I am. When I entered into this field, I never entered into for sales, it was always about helping folks. It is my passion. Don't get me wrong...of course I need to make a living. But high sales are not my priority.
I live on a quiet cul-de-sac. So really the only folks we see live in the neighborhood for the most part. It was a hot summer evening so I had my windows and curtains wide open. I was sitting in front of my computer madly trying to find a home for some folks relocating to Pullman when I looked up to see a young couple walking. They were clients of mine who just bought their first house back in June. I was so happy to see them, I ran outside to say hello! They are two very special clients. I count myself fortunate to have clients like that.
Next day, I go to work to find a note on my desk. It is from the parents of some other special clients of mine who are here to visit from California. They took time to stop in and say Hi...I loved that. Again I am in such full swing to find these folks a house, I have to put that note aside till the end of the day. I head up to help out at the family business still waiting to make that call, when I get a call from my son. They had stopped in to meet my family at our shop! He had called me to tell me he had sent them my way! Again, I ran out to greet these wonderful folks! We catch up to find that the young couple is now engaged...CONGRATS...and the parents are now proud Grandparents ...more CONGRATS! I was so touched they came to see me to share their great news!
After that I head out to preview a few homes for my client. I am driving down the road to pass another really great client waving at me from their sunroof after pulling out from their new home that we closed this year. Another first time home buyer that has settled into their home with the most adorable little girl with another baby on the way so soon! I had recently been invited to their house warming and it gave me the greatest joy for their little girl to show me her new room!
This may sound corny, but it wonderful feeling that makes me love what I do.....gosh am I fortunate!
