Barb Szabo, Realtor® from Cleveland Ohio, has put up this great holiday blog post for real estate folks everywhere.
Here’s the full link. A shorter version is below.
Happy Holidays to the real estate pros in the MRIS market; we look forward to being of service in the coming year!
‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, Not a Realtor® was stirring, not even a mouse.
Papers were signed, escrow was done and Realtors® everywhere were on their happy way home.
I too could go home to my house full of love take off my coat, my hat, and my gloves.
When what to my wondering ears did I hear? A text message on my phone did appear!
My eyes saw the message and I almost fell. My deal and my closing, they were not well.
The title rep called “The money’s not been wired, this deal’s been tough and I ‘m really tired.”
I thought of the buyers who thought all was o.k., who thought they had closed on a new home that day.
I cannot call them I thought with a tear, this is surely not what they want to hear.
The van was packed they were on their way, to start making memories in their new home today.
So I started to call all the people I knew to see if they could help still make this dream come true.
The co-broke, the lender,the title rep and I, put our heads together and gave it a try.
We found it they said, it was just a computer glitch! Our closing just then went off without a hitch.
The buyer and seller were unaware that there had ever been a problem there.
So I got in my car and I drove out of sight, Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
