Pay attention, life is making appointments for you.

I’m a firm believer that life is full of providential moments.  Unfortunately, we miss many of them because we’re so busy making a living that those providential moments slip right by.  I’m definitely guilty of that one at times.  Today, I was off to Harrisonburg, VA to teach about the importance of working with a Realtor at the VHDA seminar for first-time home-buyers.  My good friend and local lender, Mark Lynch, went with me to teach the lender and closing portions.

While Mark was sharing his portion, I received the following email from a recent buyer:

                          Hi Mike,

 I have a friend who is looking for a rental that would overlook a pond or lake.  Any ideas?

 

I put it in the back of mind for later when I was home and on my computer.  On the trip back, Mark and I talked about a lot of things, but one thing that popped up was a rental that Mark owns that needs to have some repairs done in order to get it back on the market.

 

Ironically, one of the most immediate repairs needed is electrical.  That’s right up my ally since I own an electrical contracting company.  So, we stopped by the property on the way home.  I looked over the needs, we made a basic plan of action and I snapped a picture with my phone and emailed it to my previous buyer with the message, “Like this?”  The property overlooks a large lake.  I held my phone up to so Mark could read the email.  It was providence.  Pay attention, life is making appointments for you if you’re paying attention.
