The X-Rays of Selling a Home in Sacramento
In between 3 real estate closings last week involving selling a home in Sacramento, I paid a visit to my dentist in Midtown, plus my specialist dentist who does implants in Elk Grove. The main problem I see with going to the dentist is their assistants tend to mess up my lip color, forcing me to carefully reapply, and sometimes they splash water on my face, resulting in splotchy blush patches. I would beg: the make-up, guys, be careful of the make-up, but in the overall scheme of things, the condition they leave my face is not as important as the stone carvings that inhabit the cavern beyond my lips.
My dentist in Midtown, I have discovered, is the same age as me. That news was a bit shocking because I’ve always figured he was much older; it’s in his demeanor, his walk, his way of clasping hands and communicating. It actually makes me feel better knowing how old he is because he probably won’t retire before me, so he’ll be around for a while. He’s the guy mentioned by the kid who wrote the book about lessons she learned (at the ripe old age of 8 or something) when she penned don’t bite the dentist.
I brought him my X-rays from the specialist dentist in Elk Grove. Explained how proud of his work that guy appeared. He told me so, said he had done a beautiful job. He also smiled when his assistant came into the room, saying: “Look at that sinus lift, who did that?” I respect and like veteran professionals who take pride in their work. It means the work still matters to them. It’s not just become routine. My Midtown dentist says I probably have a famous mouth, and that my Elk Grove dentist most likely takes those X-rays on the road to conventions and stuff.
Whenever a transaction closes, I often stop to contemplate and commiserate about the pros and cons, mostly elated that my clients are thrilled. No real estate transaction in Sacramento is routine. Each is special, unique and present their own particular set of circumstances. I feel a strong sense of duty to my clients, apart from the legal obligation, to do the best job and to exceed expectations.
I just wish I could take their X-rays of selling a home in Sacramento on the road. To show how my expertise and experience results in happier sellers who end up with more money and less stress than others, simply because they were smart enough to hire this Sacramento REALTOR.
