You do not know what will be around the next corner. It is a challenge, and it is one that many generations before us have met. They met it without the services that we have come to expect.
Still getting settled in our complex modern society can be an exercise in frustration especially if you don't where to turn.
Since I spent over ten years farming, I am used to taking two steps forward and three backward at times. I can appreciate challenges.
I know the best plans and intentions sometimes fall by the wayside, that is just the way it is
You have to persevere. Just because you do not know what comes next, you do not give up,. You prepare yourself, and after surviving a number of challenges, you end up with a lot of confidence in your own abilities. Sometimes you lean on those around you.
I have done that before and am happy to return the favor.
I like to see people get to the point of enjoying a new area and discovering things that I don't even know.
These days there are few spots which are actually far off the beaten path, so often civilization is just around the corner.
Still it requires a lot of effort to re-establish your life in a place where you might only know a handful of people.
I read somewhere that 91% of real estate agents never call their clients after a transaction. I find that hard to believe.
I know my clients have heard from me after the sale. I think that is part of my job as their Realtor.
Recently we were having dinner with a couple that had just moved into a home that I sold them. One of the owners said it was real pleasure working with someone who also ended up being a good friend.
It was nice to know that I helped someone make those first few steps towards a successful new life in a great spot.
