Speechless Sundays: Pete Finds His Florida Dream Home

Pete found me on the internet 2 1/2 years ago and said he was ready to retire but just not yet. He was looking for the right place that fit his budget, his daughter and their very much loved dog. We made it all happen in August, 2014 with the help of some extremely talented and hard working people in my network who faced delays and road blocks at every turn in the road to closing. This is what a Realtor is all about. Overcoming all of the obsticles, finding a way to get it done and most importanly, seeing that smile when you know you did everything possible and went the extra mile to make sure your buyer was happy with his / her purchase and will refer all of their friends and family to you. Pete has bought 2 kayaks, a mustang convertible and a jet ski for his daughter after settling in. We will be going out for a few Amberbochs when he comes back from Chicago to take care of business. Enjoy yourself buddy!

Hi John, You found Pete a great place.  I used to exhibit in the Space Coast Art Festival for many years and enjoyed the Merrit Island area. Great food too!

Larry - I never miss going to the art festival....it's a tradition! The live music is outstanding in this area as well and I have played almost every venue here as a solo / duo. I regularly get on stage with the best bands here and just wail on my my blues harp...it's FUN! What art are you into?

It is always wonderful when you see folks who have worked all their lives reach a specific goal.  That is one of the rewards of being a Realtor.  And, somehow, even though the transaction getting them into dream homes may be difficult at times, there can be a sweetness when the job is finally accomplished.

Chris - He had to pay for some renovations but in the end he will be on top and could sell it it for more than he paid but he is happy in his little piece of paradice.

Myrl - The listing Realtor said that this was by far the most difficult closing he has seen in a very long time. The banks are crazy these days. It's like they don't want or care about anyone even if they have a triple A credit rating and tons of equity. Plus, they take their sweet time gietting back to you....it's maddening!

Sharon - I can say without question that Pete, his daughter and their beloved dog are truly enjoying themselves in Florida.

Hi John,

So glad you took care of this buyer and found him the perfect retirement home. Thanks for sharing your experience.

Kristin - It wasn't easy but we got it done. At one point both partys threatened to cancel the deal. Now I can concentrate on finding a beachside home for a referal client from Canada.
