Thanksgiving and What I am Thankful for this Year.

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker



I am thankful for so many things this year. As the holidays are fast approaching, I take a moment to reflect on a few of things from this year.

I am thankful for the first time homebuyers that closed on their first home last week. They are so excited to be able to move in before the holidays. It is amazing how appreciative the first time homebuyers can be. They were able to walk away with a check from settlement and also an appraisal that came in way above list price. I am sure they will count this as a couple of their blessings as they sit down to feast on Thanksgiving Day. I am truly blessed to have been able to help them achieve this.

I am thankful for the homebuyers that went through a foreclosure several years ago due to unforeseen circumstances. They were able to buy another beautiful home this year. Their family will be able to sit down on thanksgiving day and be ever so thankful to own their own home again. I am blessed to be a part of helping them.

I am thankful for the ability to get up every day and drive 40 minutes to work. I have a salaried position at my company as well as still being able to sell for my company. Not every day is a picnic, in fact most days are challenging.....however, I am blessed to have a regular paycheck in addition to commmissions now and again.

I am thankful for my wonderful boyfriend of 10 years, who cooked dinner this evening and even baked cookies after. Hmmm, maybe he wants a bigger gift this year, I will keep my eye on this situation. :)

I am thankful for my two beautiful daughters who have grown up so wonderfully despite my hectic single mom life.

And last but not least, I am thankful for my many friends, new and old.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!!

Thats something great to be thankful for.

I am sure they are thankful for your work and that they were able to get a home.
