What's in a Name?

My reflections on how my last name led to developing a new client relationship.

Hope is a last name that comes with pressure. Weird, right?

I have had people put this expectation on me that I am to give them hope, all because of my name. It was an odd thing to get accustomed to, but as an eternally optimistic person, I would like to think that I have risen to the occasion.

An out-of-state client has chosen to trust me with selling their property. When he first called me, I asked a standard question “Who do I have the privilege of thanking for your referral?” His answer was short – my last name. He was at a point in life where he needed hope, and he chose me as his answer.

It is a privilege to be the helping hands in Colorado Springs when travel here simply isn’t possible. I work very hard to bring integrity to a business that is known for less than savory salesmanship.

That said, his compliment this morning meant the world to me.
