A few days ago Ron and I received a phone call from someone in the Ron and Don Nation. His name is Anthony. He explained that he and his wife Monica were moving their beautiful family to a community near Austin, Texas. They had found a home they were going to buy, but there was one problem: they already owned an incredible modern farmhouse in Port Orchard, Washington.
When we asked Anthony when they needed to sell, he said, “Well since we are putting an offer in Texas, we need to sell the family home NOW!”
So last Wednesday Ron and I drove out to Port Orchard to meet the entire crew. The only thing cooler then this house is the family currently living in it.
Anthony explained that he had listened to us for years on the radio and that he was a “fanboy.” Monica, on the other hand, wanted to know what two radio guys knew about buying and selling real estate. That’s a great point Monica! Since she works for Homeland Security we knew she was on to us!
After spending some time with them, their kids, their dogs, their cats, and their home right out of a modern day episode of Walton’s Mountain, we headed back to Seattle. There we created a plan to inspect, list and sell this Northwest treasure so they can pursue their new life in Texas.
From the time they hired us to sell it, to the time the for sale sign went up this morning, it’s been just five days!
We turned to our tried and true team of pros to help us get this listing together. One of them is a retired Pierce County Detective named Ben Benson. Ben put down the handcuffs and picked up his camera.
I have to admit, as I watched the video that Ben put together, I got a bit misty eyed. I thought about all the people we have spoken to over the years on the radio, but never got to meet. Then, when we finally get to meet them…
THEY MOVE AWAY FROM US!!!!!!
I DON’T LIKE THAT, HA!
There has been a lot of laughter, and some tears on this farmhouse porch over the years. It’s an honor to share it with you this morning as we GO LIVE with this listing right now!
Just an hour from Seattle, right near the ferry terminal, and don’t forget the GO FAST FERRY is coming soon! This 3,200 plus square foot home, on over an acre of fully fenced yard may be waiting for you.
And if you buy it, I will see if Anthony will throw in his SEATTLE SEAHAWK hat collection (He must have over 100 of them.)
We LOVE meeting all of you in the Ron and Don Nation.
In reality, we are FANBOYS of all of you!
Have a great week you guys and we will see you on the podcast at Ronanddonradio.com.
And if you need to speak with us, sign up on our calendar at Ronanddonsitdown.com.
GOOD NIGHT JOHN-BOY
Love and respect,
