Your First Listing or Sale

Do You Remember Your First?

Many years ago when I started selling real estate, I knocked on a door that had a FBSO sign on the front porch. During my 2 week training, the company had suggested door knocking but I had dismissed this idea since I hate people knocking on my door.

Well, to make a long story short, the very nice couple called me 1 day later and said "Please bring the contracts over as we are ready to have you list our home". This of course was music to my ears! I sold it within 25 days which seemed like an eternity back then. I closed it within 30 days and of course was very excited.

The sellers were such nice people and this photo reminds me of them and their lovely home in South Redlands, CA. 

One of my lender friends, Kerry Mutter, brought me over this gift. This gift meant so much to me and it still is displayed in my office. Giving a framed photo is such a great way to memorialize an agent's hard work and in this case "my first listing". 

I will always remember my first listing and first closing. Do you remember yours?
