It’s Hot, and Not Just Outside - August 2020 Newsletter

Boy… It’s hot, and not just outside
You do not have to be a weather person to predict the weather this time of year.  We all know… it is the hottest time of the year.  But that is not all that’s hot.  The economy is red hot too.  By all measures the best economy in 20 years or so.
This is GOOD for most reading this, but there will be some exceptions.  There always are.  An example could be someone will sell a house and make out great, meaning a buyer pays a bit more than they would have not too long ago.  And in some areas, the opposite happens.  Seller does not make out that great, but the buyer does.
Most homeowners who do NOT have to sell of course know this and will hold back on buying or selling.  That will of course impact supply and demand.  Results right now? RED HOT opportunities!
VIP CLIENT PROGRAM
How does this impact you?  Well, it is a HOT time to invest in real estate. Single-family, mul ...

Happy Freedom Month -July 2020 Newsletter

Happy FREEDOM Month!
 
As you know July is the month to celebrate FREEDOM.
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? ...

Advance and Conquer - Spring Newsletter 2020

InHouse Spring 2020
 
"Your Success is not limited by the economy; it’s only limited by the people you know and the amount of interest you can generate in your products and services."
Grant Cardone is a well-known business speaker and sales guru.  Not too long ago I was meeting with some of my business colleagues and we were discussing how easy it has become for people to just give up.   It reminded me of one of his books, “If You’re Not First, Your Last”.   In his book, Grant shares the specific thought processes and actions necessary to move from where you are right now to the front of your field.  Regardless of the product or service you sell. Grant draws on his experiences of getting through three recessions, emerging stronger, more capable, and more profitable after each one.
Each chapter builds on the next, encouraging the reader to follow this step-by-step approach of thinking and acting to help the reader achieve th ...

Pesky Ground Hog! - March 2020 Newsletter

Who Cares if the Ground Hog got it right, Spring is STILL Coming. I promise.
Spring is Springing and Ground Hog did not see his shadows! Yay!  I just came inside from shooting a video outside and WOW!  It’s nice out!  Yes, I realize that when you get this and read it that it could be cold and rainy, but those cold days are just about over.  Everyone loves Spring, primarily because it means… summer is near!
For many across this great country though, it’s still COLD, grey, and snowy! One thing is for sure, this winter season is coming to an end.  It does every year without fail.
Just like the weather seasons come and go, so do the seasons of life. I just turned 61, my husband is retired and my dog naps all day. Are you with me when I say that these seasons seem to come and go faster and faster as well as the time? My husband reminded me last night we have shared 19 of our birthdays together.
Some of life’s seasons will be HOT and othe ...
