Share Your Success Story, posted by Pat

One thing that I encounter so often when I am on the road representing NAR is the overwhelming gratitude that folks have when they work with “their ” REALTOR®.

Just recently at our Annual Conference & Expo in Las Vegas, we scheduled a dinner for NAR’s Leadership Team in one of the well known restaurants. Little did we know that when we scheduled this dinner that a waiter named Georgio saw that REALTORS® were coming and specifically asked to serve our group. During our dinner the waiter asked if he could say something to us.

Georgio explained that he never would have achieved his dream of homeownership without his REALTOR®. His agent didn’t just show him homes, he treated him like family. They often met in the wee hours of the morning. And when Georgio and his wife finally found the home of their dreams, their REALTOR® was there to help them understand their financing options. Now, he can’t wait to go home every day and his son tells everyone about their new house.

As Georgio put it, “Nothing compares to that feeling, the look on your face, when you buy your first home.”

Wow! I know we have a lot of those warm success stories that we should be shouting across the mountaintops. We want to hear from you about some of those successes and how wonderful our REALTOR® members are! — Pat V. Combs, 2008 NAR Immediate Past President

    I had the privilege to be in attendence at the dinner where Georgio toasted our association for making such a difference in his life. I have never in all the years that I have been in real estate (35) heard such heart felt comments about how important owning a home is to his family. I have never felt more proud to be a REALTOR®.

  2. It’s absolutely wonderful to hear stories like this. I love being part of making Homeownership Dreams come true! I hope Georgio gives his Realtor lots of referrals!

  3. This is a great story. This is also why I’m a Realtor. Keep these stories coming.
