I hear the buyer reads the blog so I want to be the first to say "Congratulations!". I am really looking forward to meeting to you. I know, by tradition and convention, we're not supposed to talk until the closing except through our agents or attorneys, but nothing about this experience has been conventional or traditional! So, I offer my sincerest best wishes to you as we embark on this little (but life changing) journey together.
We just bought a house in NH, so I know what you're in for with paperwork and banks and all the red tape. I hope that it goes smoothly for you and that before you know it, you're sipping a cold drink on a hot night on the front porch of 2 Locust. It will all be worth it in the end!
All the best 'til we meet in person. (And....don't mind my sobs at the closing table, I am truly happy for you. I will just miss this place like crazy.) On to our next chapters!
