Today I bought a building | Marketing Eye

The most incredible thing happened today. Exactly 3 years since I bought my house, I bought my dream office. 

I coincidently was driving past the building when I noticed a real estate agent closing the gate. I was being a sticky beak so I drove up to the real estate and asked how much they wanted. He said he wasn't sure. I then asked what was the gauge. It was less than I imagined, so my head went into overdrive.

I didn't really think I would buy it because it wasn't good timing, but when is it ever good timing? I have spent my life waiting for good timing and it certainly has never done me favours. What I have realised is that you need to trust your gut instinct. 

So, I rang my bank this morning and asked them what they thought. They asked me to tell them what my gut instinct was. I realised in that moment that it was wise to buy the property.

I am not a good negotiating so I brought along my internal accountants to do so on my behalf. It was amazing to watch them in action. They were phenomenal! 

An hour later I walked away, the owner of my dream property. A place that my office would call home for the rest of time. It was such an exciting moment for everything because it means no more moving offices when a building owner decides to develop. 

No more upheaval. I am relieved.

But best of all it means that I can invest in the space in which we work and make it beautiful. I am over the moon happy. Thank you universe for making this possible. This is the start of an amazing journey!

    Congratulations Mellissah and to all the team at Marketing Eye. This is no doubt the beginning of an exciting chapter in the illustrious Marketing Eye novel. How fantastic that you have a place to create new memories and an even more personalised, creative work environment.
    It just goes to show, going with your guy instinct isn't a bad option at all!
