Real estate agents earn a fair amount when they get a sale. Often they’ll give a gift of some kind when the sale is complete. When I picked up the keys on Thursday, they gave me a gift, just a token of their appreciation, they said.
I wasn’t expecting anything. What was it? Not a hamper of goodies, like Justine & Marita got. Not a big bunch of flowers. Not Gold Class tickets. (I already have some of those I need to use by December.)
No, unwittingly, they gave me something I quite definitely appreciate, and will get plenty of use out of. They probably couldn’t have done better if they knew me well.
A brand spanking new Melway.
At least now I’ll have no problems finding my way to the new house.
