I received a call from a past client today – let’s call him Jack.
“Renata, I’ll be moving back to the area this spring. I’m recently single. Want to stay inside the Beltway, something not too expensive.”
“Jack, so what kind of life do you want to have when you get back? What do you want to do?”
“I want to run. Have fun. I have some stuff I don’t want to get rid off – would really like at least 2 bedrooms. I’m thinking maybe Falls Church by Old Dominion running trail. Maybe a small house. I saw some condos down there that looked nice online. Would be nice to walk to the running trail.”
“Jack, where will your job be located?”
“Near Ballston, Arlington”
“Jack, have you ever thought about Shirlington? Tons of fun, minutes to DC, reasonably priced good size condos, walk to the running trail”.
“Renata, No – I never considered Shirlington…”
I don’t know where Jack is going to end up – maybe Shirlington, maybe Falls Church – we will explore all options, talk more, dig deeper. But just like that – I introduced him to an opportunity he is excited about.
If you know of someone who is confused by all the options, who might not know about available options, who needs some guidance in this very important process – I would love to help. I might not be the right Realtor, but I can listen, I can help someone clarify their needs and preferences, I can point them in the right direction at no cost. Just happy to help.
