Earlier this month, I represented buyer clients from out of state, in their search for a historic waterfront home that met their needs as a private home they could eventually retire to, while using it as a Vacation Rental By Owner in the meantime. It was my pleasure and honor to assist them in listening to their needs, wants and previewing properties on their behalf. The opportunity to not only meet the needs of my clients but also make new friends is one of the very best parts of my profession. The listing agent also was a joy to work with and offered great cooperation. I am hoping we will have another one coming down the road in the near future.
