When Heart Meets Home

In the world of real estate, there's a suggestion against sharing buyer letters

(affectionately known as "love" letters), due to potential discrimination concerns. However, there are moments when a letter comes along that touches the soul and reminds us why homes hold such a special place in our hearts.

Let me share a recent experience.

The letter comes from two sisters, who are not only searching for a new place to

call home but also a place to create cherished memories with their beloved family.

Having spent the past few years in Florida during the pandemic and previously

residing in the southwest, their dream has always been to make their way to our

beautiful town. These difficult years emphasized the importance of family and

friends, prompting them to seek a place to truly embrace life's precious moments.

Upon touring the home, they were struck by a wave of nostalgia and comfort. The deck sparked memories of summer BBQs and ice cream food fights, wooden beamed ceilings transported them back to their childhood home in Massachusetts,

and the retro kitchen brought a smile to their faces, as they admitted a love for all things 80's.

In their hearts, they could envision holidays filled with family and pets, a brightly

lit Christmas tree, music filling the air from the piano, and an office corner

dedicated to their full-time jobs.

But there’s a deeper reason behind their desire to call this house home - their

father. He's been their unwavering support, always giving without hesitation, and

has dreamed of exploring the American Southwest. With this house as a home

base, they plan to fulfill his dream of watching the sunset at the Grand Canyon, driving through Utah's Big 5, celebrating holidays with lights, and sharing

campfires in the backyard, complete with his favorite (slightly burnt)


This heartfelt letter concludes as these sisters express their gratitude for the

opportunity to tour the home and their commitment to making it a cherished place

filled with love and family memories.

Ultimately, this story reminds us that homes are not just structures; they are vessels

for the moments that shape our lives and bonds that hold us together. It's a

testament to the profound connection between the place we call home and the

people we hold dear.

And, in a nutshell, that’s why I love my job!
