A Nice Memory

 

 Remembering Jerry Herling

 

Jerry Herling Obituary

 

 I remember when My Lee  and I  flew from Baltimore to Atlantic City to get a contract signed. It was a delightful experience and a real WOW for my favorite  sellers, Lois and Jerry Herling.

 

                                               

They were at their vacation home and I wanted to expedite the sale. I made a call requesting they meet us at the Atlantic City Airport.  We were able to make this trip in 40 minutes, instead of the normal 3 hour drive.  We also had time to enjoy lunch with Lois and Jerry.

  The Herlings were at their summer home in Atlantic City, NJ and I had an offer on their unique contemporary home in Baltimore. I wasn't their first agent, so when we got the contract I was determined to get it to them right away. After calling and telling them to meet me at the Atlantic City airport, Lee and I flew to the shore.

I'd expected them to be excited and waiting out front for us. We walked into the airport office and found them just sitting there; they didn't think I would actually be there.

After that, where else, but the wing of our plane, could we sign that contract?"

Good memories!

Rest in Peace.

Hi Margaret, It's been a while and nice to see you and read your story about Jerry. Probably like you I've connected with so many wonderful clients over the decades it's like family when you lose one.
