IS IT REALLY THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR?
You know the song, the one that begins “It’s the most wonderful time of the year”? Well, there is something to that. Our current year is coming to a close and as Christmas and other faith-driven holidays approach, we’re given a very special time to give thanks, be joyful, pray for peace and feel hopeful.
If you look around, you’ll notice this Spirit of Giving exceeds any other time of the year. But why can’t it be this way everyday, every year? I think it can. It just takes intention and a little effort. Here’s what we’re doing and how you can help. As we look forward to the holidays with anticipation, some homeowners are less than enthusiastic because they feel trapped. They desperately need to exit their current place and give themselves a big Christmas Gift - a NEW place to call home.

Thank You, and...
November brings with it an extraordinary opportunity to say ‘Thank You’ for being a valuable part of our business. As we begin to prepare for the holiday season, plan Thanksgiving get-togethers and reflect on the year, it’s so easy to become wrapped up in the busyness of planning fun, joyful events for all, that we can become overwhelmed and lose sight of our gratitude. Remember, Gratitude is an Attitude. The magic of Thanksgiving comes from holding that in our hearts and minds. Unfortunately, there are many homeowners who are desperate to exit their current home and actually loathe 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.

InHouse Fall - 2022
Go Serve Big: The Lifetime Customer System.
What is it that separates us from others, whether in athletics or education, in business or the arts, or any other endeavor for that matter?
Is it one’s drive to do more than what is expected or required? One of our team’s core values is Second Mile Service. When focusing on the second mile, we can’t forget there are two miles in play here.
So, before I show you what’s in it for you, in the second mile, let’s document the first mile.
The first mile is simply what is required of us. Yes, we are here to help people buy and sell the place they call home, but there is much more going on than just a real estate transaction. There is A LIFESTYLE CHANGE being pursued..
Our Lifetime Customer System starts the minute we enter into a client relationship and seek to understand what the FIRST MILE is. For example, within the first page of our Exclusive VIP Seller Agreement, we ask the Seller 3 que ...

In case you are not sure of the title… It’s Labor Day. The Backwards Holiday. Every year when it rolls around, I wonder why it is named Labor Day? Since it’s a Holiday intended to be just that, a Holiday – I would think a better name might be Relax Day or Lazy Day or Sleep in Day, maybe even Do-Nothing Day, something other than Labor Day. After all, we know what Labor means. And many will likely be laboring on Labor Day like any other work day. Labor Day came about because workers felt they were spending too many hours and days on the job.
In the 1830s, manufacturing workers were putting in 70-hour weeks on average. Sixty years later, in 1890, hours of work had dropped, although the average manufacturing worker still toiled in a factory 60 hours a week. These long working hours caused many union organizers to focus on winning a shorter eight-hour workday. They also focused on getting workers more days off, s; ...

Happy Freedom Month
We assume the rights of freedom and debate its boundaries in politics, yet how often do we take time to reflect on what freedom means to us personally? Freedom is not a concept carved from stone; it is malleable and personal, always
shifting shape depending on where you find yourself standing and the angle of the slanting light. My personal definition of freedom is the ability to act based on my convictions without external restriction or retribution. It is the ability to represent myself as I see myself to be, not having to hide or disguise who I am in order to pursue happiness, fulfillment, and growth. It is the power of free self-expression. Personal freedom is one of my top three values. Of course, there are boundaries to freedom. My actions should not hurt others or restrict their personal freedoms, and so this is the dance of conscience. Will what I want conflict with what others want or need? If so, how can I have the personal autonomy I need whil; ...
