Who loves money? Everyone! Who gets money at a real estate closing? Maybe everyone!
My clients Sarah and Terri were buying a home together. Mom Sarah was putting in the most money, and Terri would also live there and help with bills. Here we were at the closing table. The sellers of the home got the most money; they sold their house. The attorney and realtors got paid, as did the lender. Sarah and Terri wired too much for the down payment and closing costs. They got a little bit of money, as well as a new home. There is nothing better than leaving a closing with everyone happy and wishing each other well.
I’m a good referral for your coworker Ed who wants to sell but doesn’t know where to start. Let him know you know a great agent to guide him smoothly through the sale.
