They Came, They Saw, They Conquered

By Living Room Realty, May 20, 2019

I love my job! Have I said that before? Alright, I know you’ve probably heard enough of it but REALLY! SOMEONE PINCH ME!!!

This time I had the sweet treat of helping Clayton & Nicole buy their first home. I’ve known Clayton since we were itty bitty knuckleheads in school. If you would have asked either of us then we would have said we were grown up, responsible, civilized humans…but really we were in high school so you can catch my drift. Even the best and most well behaved of us were full of it.

He and his wonderful, motivated, ultra organized, floor plan drawing, home buying master of a wife trusted me to reconnect for some business years later and let me tell you, the pleasure was mine. They were full of energy, the process was exciting, and we got the job done all while having some real fun. Many laughs were had and when things needed to be serious, we focused and found a way to get from point a to point b.

Education in real estate is something I’m super passionate about. How can you buy or sell a multi hundred thousand dollar asset without knowing what you’re doing? Without really understanding what was happening along the way? Without knowing the why’s and when’s, the how to’s and what not to do’s? We talked through the details and these two nailed it all- they listened, they learned, they acted and jumped when it was right, they bent when bending was worthy, and they stood strong on the items they needed to. They ended up scoring a beautiful, recently remodeled bungalow in a fun location for a below market price and even got some concessions from the seller. Happy buyers, happy sellers, and happy REALTORS®.

To Nicole (queen of the castle), Clayton (who has agreed to mow the lawn for life), Reggie girl (dogter), Cleo, and Seagar (kitty babes), WELCOME HOME! My friends, my clients, my people! This is a good life.

Big reveal below! I know this place will be the best decorated and most loved.
