"Received the most beautiful hand written, from the heart letter from this beautiful person...our Realtor and most importantly our friend.

We will never forget the way you helped us through one of the scariest, most stressful and yet exciting times of our lives. Those days were very fragile and you handled them with the utmost care....it still touches our hearts when we think of what we got through together.
 
The beautiful shadow box you made us hangs in … (7 comments)

maria sapio: Have you paused to consider the 'What?' behind your business? - 03/12/19 10:07 AM
Have you paused to consider the 'What?' behind your business?
 
When I made the decision to join the gym, I walked in on day one wearing my new sneakers, new t-shirt, and absolutely no clue what to do next. 
 
I quickly realized that I first had to clearly identify my 'what?' 

 
 
Step One - The What?
 
Gym-goers are motivated to go to the gym for a multitude of reasons (physical fitness, building muscle, toning, strengthening, diversion from sedentary routine, weight loss, combating fatigue, overall health, etc.)  What is my specific goal?
Once the specific  'What?' behind the decision to go to the gym has … (7 comments)

maria sapio: Pause, Reflect, and Giving Thanks for 2018. By: Maria Sapio - 12/14/18 09:35 AM
As I approach the turning of the last page on the 2018 calendar, I pause to reflect upon this past year.
 
 
My mind recalls special memories of meeting new clients for the very first time and even the death of a dear client. 
 
 
Life is a tapestry of smiles and tears that add profound dimension to the multitude of threads of many colors that weave through our moments.

 
 
Some of the memories that drift across my heart are:

 
 
 
- A particular settlement where a tear or two were shed as keys were exchanged and I was the only person in the room that understood the depth … (30 comments)

maria sapio: Dreams Do Come True. By: Maria Sapio, Realtor® Carlisle, PA. - 12/11/18 04:27 PM
Once Upon A Time two buyers and a Realtor® scheduled a marathon
of one day showing appointments.  They navigated through traffic and
even one home with a swamp in the yard - and finally, they found the
house that was the 'right one.'
After a full day, and a few cups of coffee, the Realtor® wrote the offer that
night on behalf of the buyers and it was accepted by the sellers the next
day!!  
A few weeks later was settlement day.  The mood was lighthearted and
you could feel the exuberance in the air as papers were signed and then
the magical moment … (6 comments)

"Attitude is a choice

maria sapio: "Ideas Worth Spreading" - Thank you TED Conferences LLC - 12/01/18 10:24 AM

“Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen.” 
― Brené Brown
We have all heard the phrase "you are what you eat" -
However, have you considered: "you are what you watch, listen to, and invite into your space."
The other night I was sitting beside a crackling fire, I was sipping raspberry tea and enjoying some background holiday tunes, covered by an extra soft blanket. 
It was a fairly perfect moment and suddenly a family member walked in and asked if they could put on the TV.  "Sure, I responded."  Suddenly before my eyes I was immersed into a prison scene.  The music was … (36 comments)

- Do they have a well orchestrated marketing plan? 
The Not-So-Small Details:

maria sapio: Marketing Mindfulness By: Maria Sapio - 07/13/18 09:49 AM
I recently received an email from a distant acquaintance.  I had not heard from this person in many years and as I opened the email, my thoughts wandered back to some long-ago-memories that brought a smile to my face.  My smile and my sweet thoughts were abruptly interrupted when the email lacked any personal care and was simply a cold solicitation for my business.  
Have you ever encountered a similar experience?
I felt like this person had put together a list of people that they had ever known and blasted out a marketing email with the hopes of gaining some customers.  
 
I understand that … (39 comments)

maria sapio: Abundance - By: Maria Sapio Realtor® Carlisle, PA. - 05/25/18 09:42 AM

As I walk the trails of life, I continue to meet many co-travelers on this journey.  Some prefer to walk alone and some are always aware of who's around them, ready to extend a warm handshake, offer a word of encouragement when weariness sets in, and be ready to offer guidance and direction when needed.
"Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed.If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble." Ecclesiastes 4:9-10
Today, I extend my wholehearted thankfulness to my co-travelers that live from a … (24 comments)

maria sapio: From Realtor® to 'Sweet Daughter' in Carlisle, PA. - Maria Sapio - 04/28/18 07:04 AM


 
One year ago today was the sale of this family's home. The sweet couple in the middle of this photo had made the decision to move from the home they had lived in for many years and had raised their family.
It was a difficult and emotional decision for them and I was honored to be hired as their listing agent. I had no way of knowing that I would grow to love this couple like they are my own parents.
I now call her 'mom' and she calls me her 'sweet daughter'...
I love the way life blooms and I shall … (35 comments)

maria sapio: Confetti Marketing - Maria Sapio, Realtor® Carlisle, PA. - 04/27/18 05:20 AM

A few years ago I was sitting in a real estate marketing training session that had promised to share some 'new and exciting' ways to start a real estate conversation.  I sat in the front row with my pad and pen in hand, anxious to gather each and every word of wisdom. 
Well, I confess that my expectations were met with some disappointment when one of the suggestions was to go to a local festival or summer music in the park event and "toss a handful of business cards into the air." 
What??? 
Did I hear that correctly??? 
Is this a … (27 comments)

maria sapio: A Little Encouragement Goes A Long Way - Maria Sapio, Realtor® - 04/26/18 05:02 AM

Around this time, almost two years ago, I was contacted by a sweet young couple that wanted to purchase their first home.  As soon as we met, I felt like I had known them for years as we embarked upon the journey together to find a home.  Due to the lack of inventory and specific price parameter that has been set, the search is still underway and the journey continues.
As their Realtor® I have specifically marketed the area of interest to them and even walked door-to-door to introduce myself and ask homeowners if they are considering selling.  I search for newly listed … (30 comments)

maria sapio: If I don't know, I'll do my best to find out! Maria Sapio, Realtor® - 04/25/18 05:51 AM

I was recently the guest at a hotel and during my stay, I stopped by the front desk to ask a a specific question regarding the rewards program.  Apparently my question wasn't a common one and the welcoming confidence that greeted me on the other side of the desk quickly morphed into a frantic, unknowing look.  The gentleman then scrambled around opening drawers and flipping through papers trying to locate an answer to my question.  It was certainly not my intention to frazzle this kind man, so I looked him in the eye and with a comforting smile, I said, "Relax, … (26 comments)
