Being in real estate sales you often never know who your next buyer is going to be or where they are going to come from. As fate would have it, a Chapel Hill Realtor who sold one of my listings in Mebane last year referred a buyer to me looking to buy a home in Burlington. Not knowing the particulars of the buyer, other than they were a cash buyer, I referred him to Mary Staton since I was busy working another deal.
After accepting the referral, we discovered that our buyer came into a large source of cash by winning the North Carolina lottery. After showing him several homes, we finally found the perfect one which he bought for his parents. Using the left-over money, he bought a new car for himself and put the rest into savings. When the sale closed, we paid a referral fee to the referring agent and couldn’t help thinking how mysterious this business can sometimes be.
