She was single when she bought her first home.
I was so excited to be able to help her with that. Things have sure had changed since I’d been on my own, wanting to buy a house. Back then, it was nearly impossible. It’s thrilling to see that women have the ability to purchase a home for themselves. It’s more freedom than we had even a few decades ago. Amazing.
Then, years later, the phone rang. It was her.
Time had passed, things had changed, and she was ready to sell the house now.
I was honored that she thought of me after all that time.
Life was completely different for her than when we’d first met.
She now lived in that same house, but with her partner. She ran her hands across her swollen belly. They were expecting a child. They loved the property and had even considered staying there and building on to accommodate their growing family, but had decided to move to a larger place instead.
As I mounted the SOLD sign a few weeks later, I felt tremendously blessed.
I was honored to be remembered after five years. I was thankful for the opportunity to serve her again. And I was especially delighted to meet the man who put a ring on her finger.
To watch families grow and change through all of life’s stages is one of the beautiful joys of my work. It’s personal, heartwarming, even heart-wrenching at times, and completely meaningful and satisfying.
What’s the satisfying part of your work?
