I have to admit that situations like this one are the ones that I embrace the most. There's nothing to take away from perfect situations. Like I always say, you will never know if things will work if you don't give them a try. And that's what I did.

When Fredrik got the exclusive to sell 50 Lispenard, I genuinely wanted to learn what he did that I didn't. That's why I invited him out for drinks. I was never expecting for him to give me a second chance to sell a unit in the building I so passionately went after. He didn't have to do that, but he did and I thank him for it. However, after all I went through, I felt that by doing exactly what Fredrik did I was not giving myself the chance to learn if my original idea to sell this building was going to work. To me that was a chance I wasn't going to lose. I didn't want to ask myself in the future "what if?" In the end, as much as my open house wasn't what Fredrik wanted me to do, I did bring in an offer on the spot. Regardless of whether or not it was entertained.
