Every home sold has a special human story behind it, which is why I love being a realtor. This beautiful human story is about a seller that wanted to get back home to his wife, in his home country, Hungary (his wife had moved to Hungary from Edmonton some time ago).
When I met him he had already had his condo on the market with another realtor for one year and 4 months (524 days). During those long 524 days he had never seen an offer. I suggested a minor price reduction, some painting and most importantly: a radically different marketing strategy. After having been on the market for 524 days without an offer, I sold his condo in 15 days! He insisted that someday I have to visit him and his wife in Hungary!
The seller has given me written permission to publicize his story, together with the photograph.
