Trustworthiness is Comforting
As far as the “positive reinforcement” goes, we love your mom both personally and professionally. We had had extensive experience with REALTORS before we met her, and it was quickly apparent that she was a cut or two above the “norm”. Of course, it is no surprise that you follow in those footsteps, having benefited by both her upbringing and professional mentoring. I am thankful on a personal level that we have gotten to know you both; we left many friends behind in Alberta, and thus it is nice to establish new friendships here.
Buying a home is stressful, as you know, so it is very comforting to me that mom trusts you both implicitly.
