Being a buyer’s agent is fun no matter if the client is a first-time buyer, an experienced investor, or somewhere in the middle. Beyond the nuts and bolts of practical agent work, it’s exciting to assist the first timer on an emotional level by reassuring, guiding, managing expectations, and best of all, celebrating the joy of their first home purchase. How sweet that is!
When a seller puts their house on the market, they are extending a great deal of trust in their agent and all the agents that will be showing their home. I have always done my very best to show due respect when viewing homes, but in over 20 years in business, I’ve made my share of mistakes and apologized for my share of errors.
As much as it is a place, home is also a feeling. Growing up, “home” was a place, a house, a tangible structure, a concrete construct. It was something I considered steadfast and consistent. My definition of home has evolved over time and through different experiences.
