Today I begin my efforts to help the citizens of Fayette County Kentucky understand I am a Realtor Consultant that is on a mission to help anyone who works with me as a buyer or seller to become a gardener. I have experienced the value that a small garden can bring when selling a home. I have experienced the joy of seeing first time home buyers reap the harvest from their first garden.
I was raised on a small organic farm in North Idaho. I owned my own very small organic farm in Woodinville, Washington for 25 years.
When my two oldest children Andrew and Marnie ended up in Lexington and when our first grandchild Samuel was born Kathy and I began the process of moving to be near our family. I had begun helping people buy farm land while in Seattle and knew that I would want to continue in real estate in Kentucky.
Last month while harvesting tomatoes in my garden I was overcome with deep joy and gratitude.. Immediately I was reminded that a great passion of mine is to grow healthy food. The previous four months I had worked with several sellers and buyers. I had shared my joy of gardening through giving my clients a plant I had grown or sharing some produce from my garden. It just hadn't quite become clear until that morning experience last month that to be the realtor I really want to be I needed to somehow connect my two passions.
So with the help of Hugh Sims of Integrity Premier Advertising I am beginning the process of informing Lexington on my passion to help home owners and home buyers become home gardeners.
The first part of my plan is to visit local businesses that have a connection with healthy food. That includes local garden centers, local restaurants and local markets that buy and/or sell healthy grown local produce or products used to grow healthy produce. My goal is to share with these businesses my passion and desire to support their efforts to connect people with healthy food production practices. I will give each business a tote bag with my logo and 30 pens to use with their patrons.
The second step is to publish a high quality pamplet that focuses on building value into our lives and our homes through healthy gardening practices. I am considering doing a high quality quarterly pamplet that is magnetized. I want something easy to read that will inform people on gardening and remind them I am ready to help them market their home..
