Two phone interviews and two job offers later, I landed a teaching job with one of the top school districts in the area. Now that we knew where I’d be working, we knew where to look for a property. We flew out for a “buying trip”. Our Realtor, Keli Barton, was phenomenal in every way!
We knew what we wanted: A condo near a greenbelt to exercise on and ability to walk to many places (we wanted to be out exploring, not pinned down to a yard and house like we had been). We found what we were looking for, wrote an offer and hopped on a plane back home. I still recall a week of negotiating while working…the pins and needles excitement of it.
Even writing this segment, I can feel the exhilaration of our plan coming to fruition. It was an exciting time- we were building our life and we could literally see it happening!
