This Buyer Loves The House

 

There are times you find the absolute perfect home.

This is one! And below is what the buyer had to say.

 

Home Sweet Home

 

''My wife and I were looking for a home for over two years and we couldn’t find one. We wanted four things that the house should have.

1. A rancher

2. A dead end street

3. Closer to a school where the kids go 

4. The right price.

 

When I spoke to Mrs. Rome about this, she simply used to tell me, wait, the house will one day come to you. Don’t rush! I use to think it was just a business idea, this way we don’t rush into a home we don’t want to, but that we would not find all four things in the house we were looking for.

Time has past and the day has come.

Mrs. Rome called me up and said, there’s a home you might like but I’m not sure it is for you because the house needs to some TLC.

I went quickly with my wife to see the home and fell in love. 

Mrs. Rome, the realtor, was right, and she was up front, honest, and gracious enough to explain what and how we should do some things in the house, and we today LOVE the house so much!

The prior owners were wonderful and told us, as well, what the home needed.

All and all, we are truly thankful to the sellers and to Mrs. Rome, who was a true guide of what we would need to do and for that we are extremely thankful for all the positive advice. "

 

This was such a delightful and appreciative family to work with and they really really love the house!  The note above just made my day!
