The Love Doctor is in... | February 2024 Newsletter

The Love Doctor is in...

Yes, the Doctor of Love is in... in all of us. Our lived experience teaches us that Love truly is a Many Splendored Thing. Each love has its unique aspects. When my husband and I were planning our Wedding, our event planner suggested we reveal to all in attendance the words that best convey our LOVE for each other.
My favorite Love Description is from 1 Corinthians 13: 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 angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres.
Regardless of your ‘religious persuasion’, you may agree that the above IS a great description of Love. I am talking Love because February is widely celebrated as the Month of Love, centered on Valentine’s Day. I could go on, with all kinds of examples like “L; ...

Direction and Intention Determines your Destination | InHouse Winter Newsletter 2023-24

InHouse Winter - 2023-24

Not too long ago I heard one of my favorite leaders say these words: “Direction and intention determines your destination”. That really struck me. I don’t know about you, but it seems daily I battle to keep my mind and feet on a path toward productivity vs just activity. You may have heard me say in past newsletters: Your Routine = Your Results. For me to ensure the right direction of being both productive and valuing others each day, I need to examine my habits. As you know, we can create and establish effective and productive habits but also develop bad habits.
So, as I began working on HOW to better help myself, my team and you as we head into a new year, I started by looking at MY habits. It is amazing how you can start out with a great routine of good habits but drift over time. To hedge against that, I looked back at the habits of the most effective people.

Thank you, and... | November 2023 Newsletter

Thank you, and... 
November brings with it a heartfelt 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 planning fun, joyful events for all, that we can become overwhelmed and lose sight of 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.

OUR GUARANTEE to you, your friends, and family—
For the month of November, anyone you refer to me who is considering making a move, I will guarantee in writing that their home will sell or we will buy it at a price acce; ...

Go Ahead... Give Yourself a Real Treat This Month | October 2023 Newsletter

Go Ahead... Give Yourself a Real Treat This Month

The month of October can be a spooky month, maybe even a scary month with “monstrous” problems. Yikes!!Well maybe not, but words like that seem to be popping up everywhere as kids and adults alike look forward to Halloween. In fact, according to USA Today, adults spend more on themselves to celebrate Halloween than any other day during the year. I get that. Especially if they want to hang out with the kids ‘trick or treating’ or attend a Halloween party For many homeowners and homebuyers though, they are truly scared. Scared to death of how in the world they are going to get outv of their house and into their next one (the trick).
