I love to build business relationship with people.  Ken Smith of Golden’s Realty is one of those wonderful people.  We began seeing each ofter at various networking groups.  We sat down one day after a meeting and had a business one on one.  I like his work philosophy of 1.  personalized, loyal attention, 2. honest approach, and 3. he donates a portion of his proceeds to the Neuse River Golden Retriever Rescue.  If a person is able to love and care for animals, they are OK in my book.  Even his profile picture, dog-gone-it is with his doggie.  It’s a trade mark.

OK, so Ken had this property in Cary he was representing…long story short, a large family grew up there.  the Mom and Dad are gone and the children were left the estate.  Needing to sell, they contacted Ken.  The closing date has been postponed for various and sundry reasons for months.  Finally a date to close.  The attorney comes back and said no, as the contracts have been faxed back and forth so much, they are unintelligible!

This group has gone through lots.  Ken commissioned me to illustrate the house.  Upon the real closing, there are tears and hugs.  Ken presents the sketch and there is not a dry eye in the room.  Needless to say, they have requested 7 additional reprints, so each family member has their own.

Focusing on relationships is important, to me.  Love the connection I have with Ken and the new home sellers have with their drawing.
