One of the best parts or our career is meeting people at open houses. Some are there to look, some to buy, some just to spend time together, and some are neighbors wanting to keep their finger on the pulse of their home value and their community in regards to real estate.
We meet all kinds of people and we love it. We are curious about them, we chat, we inform, we laugh, and we listen.
Recently we were holding an open house at 3218 Novara Way in Ruby Hill. A couple came in and as we talked, we discovered that my daughter knew one of their sons. This couple ended up spending around an hour and a half with us talking about the house, their lives, their three kids. They did not come in with the intention to buy-they were just looking. They saw our marketing and thought the home with a master bedroom on the main floor might be interesting to take a look at.
Shortly after that open house, this family decided to hire us to list their home at 4563 Gatetree Circle- a beautiful, updated home close to Amador High School. They also asked us to represent them on the purchase of the Ruby Hill home. Some days, this is how real estate happens-our marketing enticed the buyers to come into Novara Way, hosting an open house allowed us to meet the buyers and sell the listing. In the end, with a different agent on our team representing each party, we were able to manage all aspects of both sales and bring both to a successful closing. (And the home on Gatetree sold for a neighborhood high sales price!)
Both families are happy and it was a win-win for everyone. On this real estate journey, it’s all about the people we meet on the way, connecting them to each other and the places they call HOME.
