I met Phyllis through her relationship with Bill Campbell.I had known Bill for several years prior to that as I was, at the time, Bill's Realtor to sell the house in Juno Isles for him. We had a smooth transaction together to get that big house out of Bill's daily jobs to take care of and found his a perfect condo at Ocean Parks. Bill recommended Phyllis call me when she wanted to sell her Oceanside Terrace villa. She, at the time also, just wanted a simple non-complicated "get it out of my life transaction" on that property. She and I met at Crystal Tree Plaza in the office of a business associate of Phyllis. I honestly can't remember if he was a relative, accountant, another Realtor or her attorney. But I do remember in coming down in the elevator that day, Phyllis, after listening to so many other points of view and what everyone thought that Phyllis should do, Phyllis said to me in my green state of being a newbie in real estate (less than 5 years is a newbie) that she trusted me to do the job and she wanted very little more stress in her life and she wanted me to take the baton and get this villa sold without a lot of to-do for her and at the highest possible price for her and she trusted me explicitly to get that any number I would bring to her was a good number. Until we were to meet at the closing table..her attitude t me was .." u handle it."..was the mantra. By this stage of the game, I had fallen head over heels in love with the little Southern Belle. She was one of the very first "real-honest to God-real" people that I had met since moving to South Florida :) I did my job very well on that transaction actually, she loved me for it. and I loved her for seeing in me something that made her trust me and to and leave me alone to do my job and to back off and watch if I could do the job well or not . She brought out in my the self assurance that "selling with soul" is the one and only way I ever wanted this job and with people like her who know down in her cute little soul that I only had her best interest at the upper most numbero uno thing to be accomplished!
Many times down through the years, she and Bill would come to have dinner at The Bistro. It was a blessing in my day when I saw them going all dressed up to the nines like they were on their first date and just so adorable...go out to the courtyard and either just talk or have a drink with them and toast them with before dinner drinks. Such sweet moments and memories I have of Bill and Phyllis going on their date night to the Bristro and having me there as a third wheel for the appertifs :)
I love them both for that and I will miss those special moments forever but I will treasure them forever as well as the stars, moon, timing and my office locaiton right on the courtyard to their favorite dinner spot gave us special moments in time to share when they were so happy and just so damned cute....Phyllis Arnett was the ultimate Southern Charming Lady who loved unconditionally and deep..this world is missing someone like Phyllis who oozed love to all of those she came around.........Leshia Johnson
