The Magic in Always Adding Value
I had to update everyone on how the San Diego Paid-cation went. I was able to meet with the wonderful Mary, however when I got there her granddaughter told me that she didn’t want to do the deal or to see me. I was a little thrown off by this as I had talked with her earlier and she said to come by, so I went ahead and knocked on the door- and there was my dear lady welcoming me in with open arms. She said that her granddaughter was a little upset with her as grandma wasn’t going to give her any more money from the proceeds of selling me the property so she was just acting out for the most part. Mary told me that she was having a hard time trying to get around to her doctors appointments , to the grocery stores, etc, as no one is helping her out with getting around – she’s 90 years old. So before I came down I went online and found a designated private driver service for the San Diego area and negotiated a flat fee service account for her so she will have the freedom to call the service that I set up for her to get around on her own time without having to depend on those around her. She was so happy that I set that up for her as she is a sharp, independent women and this option just empowered to come and go as she pleased. The neighbor in Phoenix that lives next to the subject property that I was trying to buy from Mary offered her 7k more then what I was offering, but thanks to the Human Capital that I established by adding value to Mary’s life by setting up her own driver secured the deal for me. She told them no and went ahead and signed off on my contract. Plus she told me in a couple of months that she will be open to selling her house in San Diego to me once I perform on the house out here in Phoenix. With all my relationships and clients, I always look for ways for me to add value – I was a lot more valuable to her outside of just buying her house as I found a way to positively impact her life when I’m no longer around.
