31 years ago I took a call from a gentleman looking to sell his 1907 built home in Glendora, California. The luster of listing an historic home quickly wore off upon the initial walk through. If the lean-to attached to the house, and disrepair of the gardens didn’t stave off buyers, the 10% plus interest rates at the time, did. Though it proved to be a difficult sale at our $276,000 list price, Mr. Manfredi saw the potential, purchased the home, and returned the home to its former glory, to the point of receiving an award from the City and listed as an “Historic Home.” A few months ago I received a call from Mr. Manfredi’s daughter informing me of his passing and asking if I would be interested in representing the Estate in selling the home. In Real Estate, repeat clients are the litmus test that we are doing our job well. To be contacted by the family three decades after the original purchase of this unique property, a transaction that was still clear in my mind all these years later, was a true “once in a career” type moment. What made this transaction more special was that my daughter, who was just five years old at the time of the initial sale, was my co- listing agent. Once again, this time with my daughter, we completed the transaction and the baton of this historic gem was passed on to another owner who truly loves and understands the implications of owning a piece of history.
