Sometimes real estate agents make life-lasting impressions on their clients and for Crye-Leike, Realtors Vice-President Affiliate Broker Kay Paul, this was recently the case.
“A former client of mine, Nelson Crook, recently contacted me after 12 years, needing my services again but in a very different way this time,” said Paul.
“He needed help shipping Christmas stockings to 1,500 Marines serving their country during the holidays, which included his son, Kevin. Nelson knew he could count on Crye-Leike once again.”
Once Paul received the request, she turned to friend and co-agent Joyce McKenzie. The two worked together to help bring holiday cheer to Lance Corporal Kevin Crook and his fellow Battalion Landing Team BLT 2/6 like they do every day getting homes sold.
Soon, the agents had boxes of Christmas goodies on the way to Camp Lejeune, N.C., to be stuffed into stockings, made by the Marines’ mothers, for shipment to the combat zone.
“Our clients know that they can count on us, and it’s our goal to be an extended part of their families,” said Paul and McKenzie. “While working with them to find their perfect home, we form a close relationship and share dreams of their future. It is such a compliment to be thought of in their time of need and it makes us proud to be realtors with Crye-Leike.”
Paul and McKenzie are located at Crye-Leike’s Collierville branch at 435 New Byhalia Road.
