judy carr: How Much Do You Know About Juneteenth June 19? - 06/19/19 12:36 PM
Juneteenth, also known as Emancipation Day, is an American holiday celebrating the elimination of slavery. It is always held on June 19th.
Back on this date in 1862,  U.S. Congress prohibited slavery in the United States and territories, nullifying Dred Scott v. Sandford.
Due to the isolation of Texas from many of the other states (and the lack of the Internet!) it wasn't until 1865 that slaves in Galveston, Texas were finally informed of their freedom.
Since then, the anniversary of this formal announcement of freedom is officially celebrated in Texas and 41 other contiguous states on June 19 annually as Juneteenth.

Happy Birthday Judy Carr, I Miss You June 7th
by Silicon Valley REALTOR Michelle Carr Crowe
If my late mommy Judy Carr was still here on earth June 7th for her birthday, I'd sing "Happy Birthday".
I still miss her.
Not only was she a high-energy Silicon Valley super agent, she was a dynamic personality.
"If you ever met her, you could never forget her."
Judy was such a force of nature, it's still hard to believe she's no longer with us. At least I know she is free and happy up in heaven with lots of beloved relatives like her sister, brother and parents.
Thanks for … (8 comments)

Judy Carr's 8 Halloween Safety Tips 4 Treats (Not Tricks)! by Silicon Valley REALTOR Michelle Carr Crowe
My mother, the late Silicon Valley real estate legend Judy Carr, loved Halloween. Most parents like me endure it. Combining an abundance of sugar-rush-inducing candy, the exuberant freedom from inhibitions due to make-believe and costumes and often opposing ideas of "Halloween fun" between younger and older children can result in a disappointing feeling of being tricked when you expected treats. As a way to share my mother's Halloween advice, I have continued the tradition of posting an eight-part series called "Judy Carr's 8 Halloween Safety Tips for Treats" from … (2 comments)

National Salesperson Day Was March 3-There's Still Time to Celebrate
by real estate salesperson Michelle Carr Crowe
Did you know the first Friday of March is National Salesperson Day? 
The day was developed back in 2000 by...wait for it...a sales trainer, Maura Schreier-Fleming, President of Best@Selling.
While not a national of official holiday, it's good to celebrate the great people in the sales profession including REALTORs, insurance agents, sales clerks at favorite retailers and more.
Pictured here is the best real estate salesperson I've ever known, my late Mommy, the legendary Silicon Valley super-agent Judy Carr. Consider tagging a great salesperson on ActiveRain.

Did You Know Cleaning Toilets Could Be Part of Glamorous Agent's Job?

Clients often have the misperception that real estate is a glamorous job. Here's a tale showing how glamorous real estate really is.
I'll never forget the walk-through with the 90-year-old legally blind Seller who was not going to do even one more thing for the Buyers-only to discover the toilet was dirty-really dirty. She probably in honesty could not even "see" it.
