I recently had a client refer to me as her “genie,” because I helped to make her dream of owning a home come true. I’d never really thought of myself that way…as a genie! I’ve thought of myself as a gypsy on occasion…but never a genie!
I grew up watching I Dream of Jeannie, and remember two things about the show…well, three:
- How well intentioned she always was
- How much trouble she always managed to get herself into
- How beautiful she was (I was a very young girl at the time!)
In retrospect, I did learn a thing or two from her:
- She didn’t ask enough questions
- She didn’t gather enough information
- She was very impulsive.
Part of my job as a real estate professional is to listen to my clients’ “wish lists,” but an equally important part of my job is to put them in contact with the “right people” and protect them from making impulsive decisions which they may later regret. I am not a lender, nor am I an escrow officer, a contractor, an inspector, an insurance professional, or a myriad of other things, but I am privileged to work with some of the best in the business…and my clients benefit greatly from their contributions to the process. Just another way I grant wishes I suppose!
Buying a home is a process. It takes patience and persistence. It takes an open mind and a flexible spirit. With each new client comes a whole new set of “wishes.” Some want homes on large lots in El Dorado Hills with five bedrooms and family rooms big enough to play volleyball in, while others want townhomes in Folsom with good freeway access, two bathrooms and a formal dining room. Regardless of what type of property you are looking for, you’ll find it on my website. You can even customize your own “dream home” and let the computer search for properties and notify you as they become available – all without leaving the comfort of your home.
If you’d like to talk to me personally, however, I’ve learned to ask a lot of questions and to listen…and then to work hard to find a home that meets your needs; to grant your wishes! Call me anytime, I’d love to help! After all, “Your wish is my command!”
