You see, this home is right down the street from where I grew up.
Rewind a few years ago . . . ok so like 20 some. The Johnson’s have lived at 4 Southwind Court for 22 years and raised their two children in the gated community of Southwind subdivision, much like my parents did.
"Everything coming full circle."
Working with the Johnson's on the listing of their home on 4 Southwind Court brought back all the wonderful memories of growing up. For example racing my brother home from the bus stop after school and running the streets in the cul-de-sac while our imaginations ran wild. I began to reminisce of those warm summer nights catching lightning bugs and playing outside until dark or when mom would call us in for dinner.
After spending time with the Johnson’s they shared similar stories of their children as they also enjoy homecoming, prom, summers, and boating! Christmas traditions that brought about forever memories, family game nights (that Dad never let anyone else win), laughter that ended in happy tears while baking the best chocolate chips cookies from scratch (and sometimes adding a not-so-secret ingredient -- sprinkles). Ah, what sweet memories associated with "home."
Being a military brat we moved two years later off to the next Air Force duty station. We did move back to that house one more time before my parents sold it. Actually, the Realtor who sold was the one who started me on my real estate career. Another story for another time 😊
The Johnson’s loved their home and the community, but when that first adorable granddaughter was born they knew it was time to be closer to family. I mean can you blame them!
Now, the Johnson's didn't choose me as their real estate professional because I had once lived down the road as a little girl. They had been receiving my mailers, saw my online presence, and after intensive agent interviews, I won the listing due to my knowledge of the market and expert marketing.
We staged and decluttered the home with their existing home items, had professional pictures taken and hosted a Mega Open House, a Realtor tour . . . and SOLD for FULL PRICE!
