On June 4th I will celebrate my 30th anniversary as a licensed REALTOR. I was affiliated with two other Brokers (one a franchise¸ the other a small local company) before joining the Long and Foster Ellicott City office in 1996.
Today I had yet another great Long & Foster experience that some might think trivial, but to me it is “huge.”
I have been working with the heirs of the house of a past client of mine who passed away a couple of months ago. Her six children are “named” on the house and, therefore, all of the decisions surrounding the possible listing and sale of the house can not be made by the Executor of the Estate.
Since they all have to “agree,” it soon became apparent that there needed to be a “meeting.” It has been quite an experience trying to coordinate everyone’s schedules to “talk” about it, but we are finally coming together this Saturday.
For many reasons, the family wanted to meet at a “neutral” location and so I suggested that we meet at the Perry Hall office (the most convenient location for all of them). It is truly “huge” that the meeting is going to occur. I am convinced that without the ability for this family to meet in a neutral, professional atmosphere, they would not be able to move forward with what they need or want to do.
Today, I called the Perry Hall office to reserve a conference room for the much anticipated meeting. My request was confirmed with courtesy and a resounding, “Of course, no problem!”
I have utilized many Long & Foster office locations over the years from Queen Anne’s County to Montgomery, Harford, Baltimore, Anne Arundel Counties and more. At every one of them I have been made to feel quite “welcome.” It is so comforting to know that no matter where my business takes me or wherever I am in my travels, I have “a home” at a nearby Long & Foster office to meet with clients or customers, fax or email “documents” or just work on real estate matters.
I am proud to be a part of the large Long & Foster “family” and am grateful for all you do to make my job easier.
