“Vicky is very good. She was very, very helpful. She found something for my mother very quickly during what was a very difficult circumstance. She just did an outstanding job.”
A difficult circumstance? Wow, is that an understatement. I don’t think I was ever so nervous as during this transaction. Out of respect for the family, I will not share the full story. My role, however, was to find a home Marty’s mother could move into in about a month. I had never met her, nor anyone in the family. I had no idea what their tastes were, but she was moving from New Mexico where the architecture is quite different. As all buyers do, she had a budget. She also had some special needs in a home, such as requiring one level living, AND needing a music room that would fit a piano and a harp (harps are HUGE by the way). It was no easy task….and I admit to being terrified that she would hate it.
That was 2006… last week (August of 2013), Marty’s mom called me to say hi. She is still enjoying her home. She says she can’t play the harp anymore, but she still enjoys the piano. She loves her community, and has friends that visit often. She’s still not adjusted to the humidity, but is very grateful to be close to her son, who lives about 30 minutes away. I was SO pleased to hear from her.
