FRESH START AFTER DIVORCE!
Starting a new life after divorce is always difficult. Discovering your independence, making decisions without a partner to run things by, standing on your own while only having your own income to depend on. Sounds exciting and frightening all at the same time.
My client was breaking out and the next step was to find a home….her home. Determined to do this one her own, without relying on the help of family or friends, she started this quest of independence. After spending time driving by home after home and checking out every safe and established neighourhood, her eyes beheld the dream!
Quaint in size, a Craftsman style 1940’s, lovingly updated while maintaining the integrity of this vintage period, she fell in love. Tons of charm and character, a park-like backyard with lilacs, forsythias and a prize-winning magnolia tree.
Her eyes lit up at the front door, growing bigger and bigger as we walked around the rooms. A detailed woman, she scratched down notes (some mentally) of all the practical things she needed to factor. As we exited through the front door, she knew this would be the beginning of her fresh start.
When I called her with the news that she got the house, and she thanked me a dozen times. Her voice was shaky and emotional. “Living here will change your life” was in the real estate ad, and she knew that it would. Congrats on your fresh start!
