Paying It Forward: Move 'Em Out!
Sometimes our personal and business lives intertwine. Now sometimes people don't like to mix the two worlds, and we totally understand that! But given the opportunity, we're willing to help our friends list or buy a home. Just THAT much more reason to bring our "A" game to work! :)
Recently our best friends recently had an opportunity that they couldn't pass up that involved them moving to Denver. And fortunately they were comfortable with us helping them as their listing agents, and we got the job done quickly and worked through several offers until getting an acceptable offer.
Our friends have been moving themselves a big U-Haul load at a time, and this week was time to get that last big truck filled! Monday evening we took them out to dinner, and went by their home after. They'd been busy packing, most of the remaining items were in boxes, but due to a problem with the earlier rental truck, the Mr. had to swap trucks. So in the driveway is a big empty truck! And of course it was hot and humid like it seems to be EVERY day and night lately!
So for starters, (and it took all four of us), we got their upright piano out of the house and into the truck! Now we'd never moved a piano before, and it was even heavier than expected! After that we got some more boxes loaded and made a decent dent in getting the garage staging area emptied out before calling it a night.
The next afternoon Liz joined them after a closing and I got there after my usual end of day for my engineering job. Other than clearing out for the buyers' walkthrough, we went steady until about 11 that evening. The truck was filled to the gills, but the house was empty!
We were all dragging a bit the next morning at closing, but our friends were able to head to Denver on time and with a full truck as soon as the closing was over. We're looking forward to our visits there!
Some appropriate words from our friend in North Carolina:
"I do not share my stories of paying it forward for recognition. I share them so that others might be inspired to do what they can, when they can, where they can. No more, no less." Tish Lloyd, North Carolina REALTOR®
