Type(s) of Victory: Helped someone else achieve a goal, Helped someone in Mastery, Closed on another deal

I have been posting on Facebook Mastery various tips, advice, suggestions, as well as offering help to the Facebook Fortune Builders Community, since I joined Mastery in July of 2012. I received a private message the other day from Kim Finch, who lives in Jacksonville Florida. She asked if I would help her sell her grandparents house in Pasadena Maryland. The original offer the seller received for their property would have netted them $1,000 once the mortgages on the property were paid. Their goal was to receive at least $10,000. In Early September, I put the property under an option contract for $63,000 - that will be their NET. I began marketing the property on, which automatically uploads your online ad to 20+ real estate websites. Within a few days, I had 5 potential buyers. I went back to the sellers and signed a purchase and sale agreement with the seller for that same $63K. I assigned the purchase and sale agreement to the end-buyer for $69,500. We settled in 10 days from the signing of the assignment contract. In 9+ years in real estate, IT WAS THE SMOOTHEST Transaction I have ever done. Kim Finch received a $1,000 finder's fee, the seller netted $11,000, we received $5,500 and the buyer purchased the property, so he can teardown the little, old house on the lot and build his daughter a brand new home! He had been looking for a property just like the one he bought from us for 6 months. Win-Win-Win-Win!
