Love His Integrity

 

This is one of my favorite contests hosted by Lisa Von Domek each year. The hard part is narrowing it down to just three.

Lisa has asked us to write about special transactions and why we feel good about the sale.

 

With this client, Bob,  it was his integrity and kindness.

Bob enjoyed investing, rehabbing and selling.

He was not very talkative but what he had to say was important. Even after the home was under contract, he still continued working on his own punch list. He would only sell a property that he personally would live in! 

 

 

He was concerned that the house be right for the new buyer.

Even after the contract was ratified, even after the home inspection was done...Bob continued fixing things on his list.

These were not things the buyer requested.

 

And a few months after the sale, the buyer's agent questioned a repair.  Bob, without being asked, sent his contractor to check out the situation. And he also paid.

 

Note:

 I have never been a fan of 'quick' updated homes.

Speaking to other rehabbers, I have heard this comment:

"Of course I would not let my family live in one my flips."

 

It was an honor working with Bob

and I did appreciate his 5-star review

Good morning Margaret. Bob stood by his work and made sure it was done properly. A rarity these days. Enjoy your day as much as you enjoyed working with Bob.

Good morning, Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland Bob is one of a kind.... imagine how nice it would be if every seller had that degree of integrity and "self respect".... just the opposite are those who leave a home in a mess... not even broom clean... that house should sparkle and Bob is a prime example of having self worth and integrity....

Being able to say a transaction with a 'flipper' is a rarity and should be remembered for the good that was done
