Congratulations to the Garcia Family. I'd like to share a short story with you. I sold Gabriel’s home last year. In the mist of selling Gabriel's home he needed a replacement home. Gabriel purchased a For Sale by Owner home without using a realtor. The previous owner wanted to save as much as he could on the commission being paid out. I can’t blame him, but let me tell you what happens when you don’t use a professional. Gabriel decided to move forward so he up fronted a cash deal to purchase his new home. He calls me a year later, "Pablo, I want to sell my house, I am excited and pumped, let’s do this!!!" I come over, Gabriel tells me his name never appeared on title or on the grant deed, it was never recorded or done correctly. So he’s worried not sure what to do, and technically at this point it’s clear Gabriel doesn’t’ own the home. Omg, what to do. It’s Saturday morning Gabriel and I begin brainstorming, we have no option but to visit the previous owner. Out comes this voice of desperateness, Gabriel says, "I know where he lives” I’m thinking to myself this is going to be a long day LoL. We show up to the house, it appears there was a party the previous day, from a distance we see tables and chairs and canopies set up in the back yard. Gabriel being the nice guy that he is say’s "Let’s just come back, it looks like everyone is hung over from the night before." Ok no problem let’s try again at 5pm. So here we come again, it apears the tables and chairs were for that day's party. Lots of people everywhere, we are looking for the previous owner, so we ask a stranger "Excuse me, we are looking for Mr. R" he tells me that he is in the back, "Come right in." We replied, "We are not guest of the party" "Nonsense" says the Stranger. "Come right in, friends of Mr. R, are my friends to." At this point I’m hungry, the food smells terrific!! I can smell the carne asada, I have to make a judgement call, ok let’s walk in and out, I said. Mr. R is nowhere to be found. Gabriel run’s into Mr. R's Father and says "My son is out getting a haircut, he will be back shortly, You guys are welcome to have something to eat." Food has always been my weakness, I can’t resist. I was the first one to grab a plate, its almost 8pm the Mariachi, is playing the music is off, Gabriel is having a beer, my wife is blowing up my phone, if I tell her that I’m still working she is going to hear the music in the background or if I answer she is going to want an explanation. No time for that, so I don’t answer, I’ll deal with that problem when I get home. Finally Mr. R shows up, Gabriel and I approach him, we have a long conversation with him. Mr. R was very cooperative, I get the signatures I need to move forward, and the rest is history. This Home is SOLD !!!!!
