Not Every Realtor ® Is Only Looking For The Commission Check

I enjoy working with many types of clients each day, and guiding them through the process of purchasing a home.  There are some clients however that are just so rewarding to work with, I almost wish I could clone them!  A bit unorthodox to say maybe, but in the Central Florida market, homes are selling faster then they are listed, so it's a pleasure to have an offer accepted with buyers whom have been looking for a while.

Working in this market everyday, and knowing what my clients' needs are, significantly help us expedite the home search with them and get to closing quicker. 
There is one couple that I have in mind in which I recently represented.  They are a younger couple in their late 20's, and just had their first baby boy.  We looked at many different properties over the course of 4 months, and even canceled one contract due to the inspection results.  We got a late start to viewing homes on a Wednesday, and finally came to the last home of the evening.  An updated single family home in Altamonte Springs, on a dead end street with a pool, only listed 4 hours by the time we opened the front door.  This was the one!   I knew from the moment we walked in that they would love this home.   We wrote the contract at 9:30PM in the kitchen of this vacant home, and it was submitted by 11:00PM that night. 
After receiving nearly a dozen offers, the sellers knew that this family truly appreciated their home, and they wanted to see a yooung family live there, just as they did.  Their offer was accepted 48 hours later.
My love for this story comes to fruition at closing, when the couple was brought to tears in joy, thanking me for helping them find a home where they can start their family....priceless!  The sellers were also there to share pictures of when they were younger, and to show the new buyers what the home looked like 20 years earlier.
A lot of Realtors choose not to attend closings for various reasons, however I will go every time, and ensure that the buyers are completely satisfied.  In exchange, my satisfaction comes from handing over the new keys to their home.
