When your clients become your neighbors

By Living Room Realty, May 29, 2018

I love when your clients become your neighbors!

Wade & Laura called me on a condo listing I have in the Pearl. I met them to show them my listing and a couple others in the building. From first meeting them we totally hit it off! We had similar personalities and sense of humors- a couple key components to working together during a real estate transaction 😉

Ultimately, they decided the building was not for them, but they were interested in the building across the street. A unit in the Pinnacle came on the market the weekend after I met them and they called me to take a look. All I can say about it is… STUNNING! From the moment we walked into this unit, I knew it was for them. It was similar to the layout they had been living in for the past 10 years. They were no newbies to the Pearl, they had been renting in the McKenzie, but were ready to find a place they could invest in on their own. We were one of the first parties to see the unit and quickly made an offer. Our offer was accepted and the clock started ticking! There were a couple speed bumps throughout the transaction, but with perseverance and persistence from all parties, we were able to pull through!

Wade & Laura were able to move in a few days prior to closing. Now, they are not only my clients, but my neighbors! Unfortunately, they live on the opposite side of the building from me, otherwise we’d be able to wave to each other from our patios. Nonetheless, I am so happy they found a place they love and can call home. Congrats!
