"How soon can we come on the market? We were thinking next Thursday."

We bought our dream house with Anne two years earlier, and had been making plans for renovating ever since. But when life’s trajectory changes, we have to change with it, and suddenly we had an amazing house that we didn’t need. Two weeks after my first call to Anne, we had grown grass (Anne bought, planted, and continually watered the seeds herself), planted flowers and sod, painted, replaced carpet, staged, photographed, videoed, and came to market with a gorgeous website and a neighbor’s debut party. It was the hardest two weeks of my life, and also probably of Anne’s, but the payoff was breathtaking. Two weeks of work over two years of ownership isn’t bad, and we secured the perfect offer from the perfect buyer for our perfect house.
