The closing gift that I couldn’t top

Oneyear ago today, one of my clientsgot a closing giftthat I couldn’t top, and I know I never will. You see, alittle over ayearago, I met a young couple that wanted to find a home were they couldstart afamily. She was about to finish school and he was a chef. I helped themfind agreat home where they could raise a family. It had a large yard, 4bedrooms, and2.5 baths, it was perfect. They wouldn’t have to sell until they wereready toretire and downsize.

Thehouse closed without any seriousissues and I gave themone of my personally picked out closing gifts. Each gift Igive isbased onsomething I learned about my client during the home buying and sellingprocess.I make each gift personal to them, even the foot and a half long bonefor thedog.

But, the dayafter they moved in, mygifts for them wereover shadowed! The next morning, the buyer thought she washavingbuyer’sremorse. Maybe they bought to early, maybe they wouldn’t be able tokeep up onthe payments, what happened if she couldn’t find a job aftergraduation? Youknow, all the thoughts that go with buying a first home.

Well, I’m happy to saythere was no buyer’s remorse and later that dayshefound out that they were having someone move in with them.It waslittle Audreywho is now three months old and I have to say as cute as a button. Idon’t knowwho was smiling more yesterday, me or her, when I stopped off to justsay hi!
