Happy Valentine's Day
To You and Yours!


I was cruelly led to believe when I was young that Valentine’s Day was reserved ONLY for those closest to us—that it was weird to wish strangers or acquaintances a Happy Valentine’s Day. That would be equal to telling them I love them. But aren’t we suppose to love others?

Of course, I’m bringing up Valentine’s Day because it’s February, the month for Valentines, and it’s a BIG deal… bigger than just flowers or dinner with that special someone. I may have shared this story with you before, but when my wife and I were planning our wedding back in 1979, she suggested we reveal to all in attendance words that would convey our LOVE for each other.  Some of those words included: Love is patient, love is kind, it does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud, it is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily&n ...

And the New Year’s Resolution is...

Round about this time of year most begin to make resolutions.  I think the idea is to resolve to be better, do better or accomplish something grander in the NEW year than in the previous year.  However, for whatever reason most fall short of keeping a resolution let alone achieving it! I for one have been guilty of it. How about you?
There’s a great book that helped me and my team dramatically improve our follow through on achieving important goals and I want to share it with you – as sort of a Happy New Year After Christmas Gift.
Before I share the book details, here is my TWO PART resolution to you and anyone you know considering selling the place they call home!


If you or a friend are thinking about selling, make sure to choose a real estate company you can trust!
A real estate company with experience,  proven results and a give-back p ...

THE GIVING SEASON - One of the Core Philosophies at our company is this: The size of the hole you give through is directly proportionate to the size of the hole you receive through. You could even say that ‘giving starts the receiving process’. The point though is NOT to give in order to receive, just go give!  After all, this is the Giving Season.
 
With the current year coming to a close, celebration of Christmas and other Faith Driven Holiday Celebrations all mean different things to different people, but most always represent joy, peace, gratitude, and hopefulness.
 
A GIVING SPIRIT - If you look around, you will notice a giving spirit exists unlike any other times of the year. Why can’t it be that way every day of  every year? It can! It just takes effort. Here is what we are doing and how you can help (see inside for details).

The month of November brings about an extra opportunity to say Thank You for being a valued client. As most begin to prepare for the Holiday season, planning get-togethers and the like, it’s easy to become wrapped up in all that we have to do to ensure fun, joyful time for all we are responsible for and overlook all that we have to be thankful for.

Unfortunately, many home owners are desperate to exit their current home. Actually loathing this time of year as it adds to the frustration of not being settled for the Holidays. You may know someone or a family that fits this description.

Moms and Halloween!


It's creepy and it's kooky -- and it's Mom's favorite low-stress holiday! According to mom after mom, those infamous "big name" holidays—you know which ones we mean—are sometimes more headache than highlight. The pressure! The presents! The out-of-town guests or out-of-town travel, the cooking and cleaning, the expenses! But Halloween—that's a different story. More than two-thirds of Moms are involved in celebrating with their families.  
 
What I love best about Halloween is all the little things that I see families doing every year, stuff that's unique to their family, not part of some big commercial idea about what the holiday should be like.  Whether it’s just the basics—costume, trick-or-treating, candy eating— now we've got a whole series of activities and special events that many kids totally look forward to—from roasting pumpkin ...
