Kids learn from parents...and parents learn from kids.
When we moved to Lake Anna my real estate license was inactive. I was busy playing golf and working with an architect designing a home for my husband and myself. Life was good.
A short time later one of my sons and his wife decided they were ready to buy their first home. Marc asked me to reactivate my license in order to represent the two of them. At first I said no because they were planning to buy a place in Richmond, VA, not that far from us but a whole different market.
MARC and KIRSTEN
Not to be deterred, Marc explained to me that they knew what area of the city they were interested in and the fact that they wanted to purchase a brand new house. That meant they would be working with a builder.
I did re-activate my license and when my son and his wife found the small subdivision where they wanted to have a home built I helped them with the purchase. My initial thought was that I would be able to gift them with my commission. That was not what they had in mind.
Helping Marc and his wife opened my eyes to how much I enjoyed helping buyers. Yes, golf cart driving gave way to roaming around Lake Anna with folks interested in finding a home so they too could enjoy lake living. Twenty years later I am still doing the same thing and still having a great time doing it.
Sometimes children know best.
