The REAL in Real Estate

The REAL in Real Estate

I’ve always found it ironic that the word REAL is in Real Estate yet there are so many outlets that deliver fake ideas as to what it is we really do and who agents really are. From the HGTV’s to the Bravo’s to just stereotypes in general there’s a lot that is put out there that just simply isn’t real. What is very REAL is getting the news that a client has passed away. It will hit you like a ton of bricks.

 

The REAL in Real Estate

 

I learned Saturday morning that a client of mine had lost his life after going into cardiac arrest. While I don’t know all the details I do know that he was far too young to leave us. He was an adoring husband and father and someone who I called a friend. He was honest, genuine, and the type of person you feel blessed to know. I sold him and his wife a home in 2009 and while it was the internet that initially connected us it turned into so much more. We house hunted for some time to find the perfect home. One that they could make into their own over the years and they did just that. A friendship evolved and I have many fond memories of us getting together for dinner in their home and mine.

 

It doesn’t get much more REAL than Real Estate. Whether we’re in our clients lives for a few months or a lifetime the majority of the time we get to know them very well and if we’re lucky a friendship evolves. We are there to encourage them, ease their fears, and be the constant in what’s often an overwhelming storm of foreign terms and processes. We get to know their family, their pets, their likes and dislikes, and we have the honor of handling a transaction that is tied to making or packing up life’s most important memories. It just doesn’t get more REAL than that.

 

Rest easy Scott, you were and always will be someone who reminds me why I love the REAL in Real Estate.
