Hugh Merkle Video Transcript

“One of my most wonderful experiences selling a Stone Harbor vacation home to a family was in 1991 we received a call in the Hugh Merkle Team office that this young lady wanted her parents to see a condominium on the beach in Stone Harbor. And I was kind of curious because she sounded so young and I wasn’t even sure that they were going to show up. Well, she set the appointment up for three o’clock in the afternoon, and they showed up to see this condominium. And she and her mother were trying for a number of years to get her father to buy a Stone Harbor vacation home, and they kinda fooled him into coming to seeing this condominium.

“Well, they didn’t buy this condominium, but six months later, they bought a wonderful house in Stone Harbor. And that was almost twenty years ago, and now this young lady is a mother and has two children, and the parents come down, and she comes down with her husband, and this is really what Stone Harbor and Avalon is all about: building family experiences that they’re going to remember for years and years. And it’s just so wonderful to see them be so excited still, and it makes me want to come to work every day to continue to help people to find that special Stone Harbor vacation home for their families.”
