My Clients Called .........You want me to do WHAT?

Last fall I had a couple from California that built a new home with me as their buying agent. It would be December when the home was complete and they would make their move to Albuquerque.   We playfully bantered back and forth via emails and phone calls that my wife and I would help them move in when the time came.

Albuquerque Moving TruckThe long distance home construction and closing went smoothly.  At 10:00 on a Friday night I get a call from my happy home-buyers they were about 30 minutes away from their new home.  I’m thinking they want me to meet them at their dream home and give them the keys.  Well I had it partly right.

It turns out Mr. Buyer had the flu complete Client with Feverwith temperature and chills, Mrs. Buyer had driven the large moving truck the entire way and was exhausted.  Yes they wanted the keys but they also wanted help moving in THAT NIGHT.  At first I laughed then realized they were serious, You want me to do what?  They actually wanted the truck completely unloaded so they could return it to the rental company at first light the next day.

Now keep in mind it’s December.  Of course on this particular Albuquerque night it was really cold, gusty winds and even sleet now and then.  After some muttering my wife and I got our coats, gloves and ear warmers and jumped in taking off the Realtor cap and putting on the movers’ toboggan so to speak.

Man Moving BoxesAfter a quick exchange of greetings all four of us kicked into full moving mode.  Thankfully they had marked everything well so we hustled each box and heavy piece of furniture to Moving Boxesthe proper room.  We didn’t slow down; there were no breaks, it was cold, they were sick and tired and we all wanted to just get finished!  After a while it all became a blur but we got it all done in the wee hours of the morning and survived to tell the tale.  

If there ever was a time when we have gone above and beyond the call of duty I must say this story has to be at the top of the list.  Paying it forward has paid off in more ways than one and we’re actually good friends with our referral happy clients.

We would love to earn your business at Albuquerque Homes Realty but we won't be able to personally help you move.  I bet we can help you find some good professionals.
