Most people use the word DEAR as a salutation for general headings, but as I write this note the word means much more than that. The selling of my house gives you a really dear five star rating. It was so dear of you to fight your way through the multitude of transactions with the town and the permits.
It was dear of you to correct the plumbing inspector as to why he was there at all. You had very difficult clients but never said, “oh dear!”
And you certainly were a dear to stand in for me at the closing when I was unable to attend. All’s well that ends well and it surely did end well because you are a dear real estate agent so well respected by your clients and your peers.
And finally, thank you, dear lady.”
