” Have you ever sat in your world, you know the one you’ve created for yourself and like a movie montage, everything around you slows down and you get to see what is really happening around you? Only then to realize, what is perfect for practically everyone you know around you, no longer is where your heart lies? That was us. There was a strong sense of, “we aren’t supposed to be here. That our true path was yet to be discovered…” -Sam Griffin
Chen and I met Sam and Brandon over 4 years ago. We held a lot of similar beliefs about health and wellness. Sam and Brandon introduced us to their health and wellness company, Thrive by Le-Vel. The health and wellness journey they have been on is one of the major contributors to their ability to travel full time and live their dream..But How did they get there? and what was the process like? In today’s feature of Live Your Dreams, we show you how it all came to be.
Find out in their story below, how they overcame fear, and other challenges during the process of selling their home and transforming their lifestyle into a full time traveling family.
“Its been almost 2 months since my worldly dreams of traveling North America fulltime with my family have come to fruition and I wanted to give some props to the man that made it happen.
Have you ever sat in your world, you know the one you’ve created for yourself and like a movie montage, everything around you slows down and you get to see what is really happening around you? Only then to realize, what is perfect for practically everyone you know around you, no longer is where your heart lies? That was us. There was a strong sense of, we aren’t supposed to be here. That our true path is yet to be discovered. A random google search later and we figured out exactly where that next phase of life was supposed to be. That meant, our home needed to be blessed and released.
When it came to selling our home we had 2 obstacles. The first, and by the far hardest hurdle to cross was FEAR. We were selling our home to then move into a 5th wheel to travel North America with our 4 children. The thought of “what if” this doesn’t work out, we have NO where to come home to scared us. Not to mention societal pressures and judgements.
The second challenge, the easy one. Was getting our home photo ready to put on the market. That meant getting our small home projects done. Not an easy task. We hired a local business to overhaul our construction projects in 2 days and my husband and I went to crazy town cleaning and decluttering our home. I remember Chen questioning if we could really pull it off in 5 days. I mean, he had years of experience with clients taking their time to stage their homes, but April, his wife, knew our hearts and If we said we are gonna do something, it will be done. NO sleep was to be had but in 5 days, our house transformed.
Why did we choose Chen? Chen was an easy choice. Like most people, we had done some research for several months. We had visited with a few different agents who came highly recommended but after visiting with Chen, and growing a relationship with their family it became a no brainer. First and foremost, he was knowledgeable about the industry. He understood how the markets worked. He gave great advice, and had a clear strategy and plan in place. He didn’t baulk at our own ideas and stood behind our decisions as if they were his own. He educated on things so we could make final decisions that made sense for us! We were confident in his team and he explained EVERY step and gave us confidence stepping out into the market. His photographer did such an amazing job showing off our home we almost got cold feet! Haha. We had a full offer in 11 hours. We accepted in less then 27hrs. Within a month, we closed.
The entire process with Chen was seamless. We watched the buyers agent do things that made us all the more thankful for Chen and his transparency, education, and forethought through the process of selling our home. It kept our mind at ease and he was always 1 text message away. He helped us get all of our goals MET!
As we look back on this experience we just can’t stop thinking about how LUCKY we were and how greatful we are to have hired Chen and his team to help us. Our dreams of travel would have NEVER had happened, had we not hired his expertise. So many times, I could have seen missteps happen but Chen handled the field so effectively and efficiently, with such grace, that now, as we look back, we can only smile and appreciate his hard work and dedication to our family’s needs and goals. He was a huge part in getting us ready for full time and we are extremely grateful. Getting a card with our old home on the front to commemorate our time in the house was like the cherry on top. If you’re looking for excellent customer service, making a new friend, and getting the most from your realtor, look no further than Chen Liang and his amazing team. They help you with your dreams.”
