 'Thursday Thought' today comes from someone who I believe is being seen more and more as an extremely motivated, motivational, very intelligent and driven person, not just a gym junkie.  Kudos to you Arnie.

sandpoint homes: 'Friday Flag' Sandpoint Realty LLC - October 8, 2021 - 10/08/21 07:10 AM

 
While traveling last week I was hampered with computer and connection obstacles.  So with having missed last week's 'Friday Flag' I am throwing in a bonus shot.  They fit together, for me, in that I sincerely doubt I will be seeing either again anytime soon, if ever.
 
 
Flag is framed by palm/date trees and of course the restaurant certainly an American Icon we are all familiar with at least by name if not having been at least once.
 
Thank you Yuma Arizona for proudly flying our colors.

This weeks 'Friday Flag' pushed a couple others a week back.  While driving to a Closing in Coeur D'Alene I saw this construction worker with our USA Flag.  I had to turn around.  Told her I liked her flying Ole Glory and asked if I could take a picture.  Thank you North Idaho construction worker (ironically a flagger) for proudly flying our colors.  
In turning around the 2nd time I got the upper photo showing what a lonely job a flagger can have sometimes.  Pretty cool that she brings some personality to the job.  The photo directly above was me asking permission.

I am sure we have all stepped inside a building, outside to a garden, met someone, or listened to someone and knew it was different.  Something special yet we could not quite put our finger on what was making it special.  It was speaking volumes without a word.

I personally found that as soon as I started concentrating on my own growth rather than everything around me, my successes grew, even with their importance diminishing to me.

sandpoint homes: North Idaho's Natural Beauty - 09/19/21 10:58 AM
I am constantly reminded how fortunate I am to not only live in North Idaho but to have a career that takes me out to this type of beauty on a daily basis. 
Fields in Clark Fork as looking North towards Bonners Ferry
Clark Fork River looking East from Clark Fork towards Montana
Clark Fork River looking West to Lake Pend Oreille.
 
Keep in mind this was not a special outing.  A simple visit to one of our listings.  Are you interested in living in an area that displays this type of beauty on a daily basis?  Contact me for more specific information.

sandpoint homes: Idaho Number 1 in Equity Gain Past Year - 09/08/21 06:06 AM

Core Logic shows Idaho as having the largest equity gain across the United States over the past year.  And it is at no small amount either, $71,000.  Just as encouraging is no state was found with zero equity gain, or loss.  
 
Contact me to see why I see this trend continuing and how I can help you to take personal advantage of this growth.

'Friday Flag' this week has a few extra items this week.  I wish the photo could better show just how vibrant these flowers are in person.  Incredible.  Also this Hayden Idaho resident now has an accepted offer and scheduled to close next month.
 
Finally this is the final 'flag' for the month of August.  Thank you Hayden resident for proudly flying 'ole glory' and congratulations on your accepted offer!

Even the largest and deepest of lakes need be replenished regularly or they grow stagnant, and eventually dry up.

'Friday Flag' this week is again a double bubble for me.  A resident proudly flying their USA Flag off the rear deck.  And you may recognize this as a recent listing that has now gone under contract.  Thank you Bonners Ferry Idaho resident for proudly flying 'Ole Glory'.

The only good comparison is that which we make with ourselves.  How have we improved over the last year, week, yesterday?  That is productive.

It is so easy to sit back and be comfortable.  The longer we do so, the more difficult it becomes to move from the harbor to the open ocean.

sandpoint homes: Fire Danger Extreme in North Idaho - 08/13/21 01:26 PM
     The extreme Fire danger in North Idaho continues, much due to the unprecedented long stretches of 90 degree plus heat we experienced early summer.
     Pictured above is an Idaho fire map depicting Trestle Creek fire that is threatening evacuation to some north Sandpoint residents.  The smoke is thick and there is tension amoung most everyone as to how far beyond the 3,500 acres, as of yesterday, this fire will stretch.
    The couple rainy days we recently had helped fire fighters a bit, but certainly was not enough to completely dismiss the dangers.

'Friday Flag' this week is in one of my favorite categories.  A resident who is tucked away from the road and the general public.  The flag proudly fly's for the benefit of the owners only for the most part.  And a little icing on the cake is this flag is flying at a New Listing (Rancher, 10 acres, 36X40 Shop) in Athol Idaho.
Thank you Idaho resident for proudly flying 'Ole Glory'.

Top of the morning ! This week's 'Friday Flag' is actually one of my favorite Flag locations.  It is located at the Bonners Ferry Veterans Memorial Park.  Proudly flown and easily seen by both those entering and exiting the town as they cross the Kootenai River at Towns edge. 
 
Thank you Bonners Ferry for proudly flying 'Ole Glory' and honoring those who sacrificed all for our country and freedom.

sandpoint homes: Coming Soon - Not the Ad-Pic I Planned On - 08/05/21 05:50 PM

Wanting to get an ad in for this new listing I was rushed I could not come up with an outside shot, without trash cans, smoke, cars etc. Time was running out on the deadline.
Sometimes a little creativity goes much further than what had been originally planned.  Whether the pic or 'duplex' is drawing the attention I do not care.  I do know I am much happier with this ad than any picture of the house on short notice.

I feel fortunate in having appreciated this long before seeing the quote.  I have done my best to give as much time, focused, as possible to my buddies, not just the gratuitous scratch on the head.  It has been returned to me 100 fold.
