Celebrating With My Buyers and Sellers in Their New Home

Selling real estate is more than just a transaction. Buying or Selling a home is a major decision and as a REALTOR, you become intertwined with the buyers and sellers for at least 30 days.  Meet my friends Todd & Michelle Lejune.

The Lejunes

Todd and Michelle were our neighbors on the same street in Lake Charles and my husband Craig graduated from high school with Todd.   When they decided to sell their South Lake Charles  home they called me and told me they wanted to move to the garden district in Lake Charles. They had a very focused plan for their family future.  We prayed together and I embraced their dream and we started the plan in motion. They found a home they fell in love with and we wrote a contingency contract that went into place until their home sold.

Let me share with you why this was such a special experience.

  • These loving parents adopted a beautiful baby boy 3 years ago. Brice If you know anything about adoptions, you know that the family is interviewed and deemed suitable.  There is legal paperwork that must be completed and it is an expensive process.

  • Todd and Michelle (Dave Ramsey fans) wanted to consolidate debt and simplify their lives, they were moving from a larger home to smaller home in the garden district. Most everyone called them crazy and didn’t understand why in the world they would choose to move out of their South Lake Charles neighborhood.

The reward of it all comes when you see the smiles and the joys of those buyers/sellers as they step inside their new homes.  You realize that you played a part in that life chapter and its an honor and blessing that I enjoy the most!  It is a great feeling to be a trusted friend and a wonderful experience to see those happy endings.

Todd and Michelle, were able to pay off adoption expenses in full with proceeds  from the sale of their home. Now they are beginning a new season of their debt free lives in a charming historical home they love.  This was not just a REALTOR-Client  30 day relationship, the Lejunes  are my friends for life and we will continue to celebrate together!

Congratulations on your new home Todd & Michelle and Happy 3rd Birthday Brice!
