I was inspired recently by the actions of a friend, Jake Palmer. Jake is a real estate agent I’ve known for many years. He’s well-known in our area, affable, well respected and genuine.
He’s also known for doing things you’d least expect, or would have never thought of.
A fellow real estate agent was earnestly trying to do what might be impossible in today’s housing market: find a buyer for a duplex on the condition that the current owner and her tenant did not have to move – and that they could stay on at below-market rates.
Jake met the owner and understood right away why his colleague, Judy Mitchell, was trying so very hard to sell: aging with health issues, a move would be heart-breaking. More than that, the owner was so endearing.
