Happy New Year!

Here are some fun January events around the area. You probably won't be too disappointed if you missed the Polar Bear Plunge...Brrrrrrrrr. Definitely not for me! But restaurant week coming up...that's a different story. Hope to see you around town!

Looking Back...and Forward...

How often do you take a look back and reflect on the blessings in your life? 2015 was a personal sales record for me and a wonderful year in many ways. It will also be remembered as the hardest year of my life because we lost our youngest son to cancer. I’ve been reflecting all the more on what I do and why, and it has reinforced all the reasons that I work by referral.

Whenever a house is sold, it’s just a house—the walls that surround us for protection and keep a cover over our heads. However, it’s the memories that we create there that make a house a home. It’s the love and laughter of family and friends…the meals shared together around the table…the pictures of our kids…the welcoming wag of a tail that greets us at the front door…the cozy fire on a cold, rainy day…the solitude of a quiet morning with a cup of coffee...that splash of paint that’s your favorite color! These are the things that make a house a home and stay with us wherever we go and long after our loved ones are gone.

To me, HOME is a big deal. You take those memories with you wherever you go and continue to create new ones. It’s also very likely to be one of the biggest transactions we ever make—regardless of how many times we sell or buy as we move through the stages of life. I take very seriously your trust in me to guide you through that transaction with the end goal in mind—a house for you that you can create into a home. And because you have the nicest friends and desire the same for them, it’s my pleasure to serve them, too.

Whether you welcomed in the New Year alone in the coziness of your home, or surrounded by others who you enjoy, I wish you the very best in the upcoming year! As I’m setting my business goals for 2016, will you keep me in mind when you hear of family or friends considering that next important move? And don’t forget that I can be a resource to you for all kinds of referrals and market updates!

Thank you & Happy New Year from my home to yours!
