It will be a good Good Friday!
In the February 28 News from the Street newsletter, I confessed my love for Camano Island. Today, a month later, I can disclose to have not only listed but sold another home there. This time on the eastside in a neighborhood called Camano Country Club.
It came and went quickly. Listed on Thursday, March 4 at 5 pm, the first agent came to show the home on Friday at 8:30 am. The same agent submitted an offer six percent over list price that afternoon and we had a mutual agreement on Saturday, March 6 at 3 pm. In her text message, alerting me to the offer, she said “the early bird gets the worm.” She added “nice marketing remarks.” She was correct on both counts.
Instead of mere prose, I had decided to write the marketing remarks in the form of a poem.
🏡 This Camano Island home on the eastern side
Shows throughout the owner’s pride.
He built it in 1994,
The square footage being
forty-four hundred and twenty-four.
But wait…there is more!
🏡 There is more on each floor this home has in store,
such as the newly refinished hardwood floor.
There are rooms to sleep, exercise, work, and play.
And so much storage, what can I say?
🏡 I should say, and you should come and see,
the possibility for an Air B and B.
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention this:
each and every day and night,
the mountains and the bay are quite the sight.
I must remember
that as a member
of the beach and club down the street
you can boat and fish, meet and greet.
🏡 So get up from your slumber
and text your agent’s number.
No need to rhyme,
Just be on time!
The home is scheduled to close this Friday – Good Friday. In a text message exchange with the buyer’s agent, I pointed out the significance.
That is Good Friday. It is the day I celebrate the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. I celebrate in the knowledge that he died for me and rose again three days later.
In my line of work, I serve many different people. Some share my belief in Christ, others do not. I try to serve them all as I attempt to serve Christ, who is the Lord of my life. That is a tall order and none of my clients seems to mind.
Whether you share my belief or not, I offer this blessing from the Old Testament, Numbers 6:24-26
“The Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.”
Happy Easter, Blessed Resurrection Day!
