A Moment That Makes It All Worthwhile

It doesn’t happen every day but every now and then someone will do, say, or write something that makes working Short Sales worth all the headache and extra work.

This morning a little package and note card were delivered to my office. When I picked it up I had no idea what it was, who delivered it, or the impact it would have on my day.

I opened the card and read the kind words.  The card was attached to a small box with a necktie in it.

Thank You Card - Closed Short Sale

While I’ve saved 20 or more families from foreclosure this year alone, I’ve only received a thank-you card twice.

It’s the simple handwritten acknowledgement that the work I do is appreciated that renews my faith in working Short Sales. I saved another family from foreclosure and they realized the extra work that goes into it without any additional compensation.

Tomorrow is a fresh day and I have more families to help!
