We are the exception, and we any realtors nightmare: the husband did not want to leave our home of 40 years while the wife had been ready to move for the past 30 years. Todd Kimball's grace in this dilemma was critical to bringing about a purchase. I should add that he regularly opened many, many homes for us with no sense of rush--took more than a year's worth of looking. He is more a friend with expertise than a realtor, and he remains that today. By the way, my husband loves our new home; anyone would think it had been his idea all along.
