As the holidays approach and we finalize the end of the year books, send out holiday cards, attend holiday parties and prepare for next year. We can't help but remember all who were a part of our year 2011.
Again, this year has brought amazing people into our lives. This business is so rewarding in many ways and often we forget to be thankful for the many yearly blessings.
This year started out with Christina, joining our team and bringing with her a tremendous amount of knowledge in the technology world. Her talents in Real Estate are natural and her clients gratitude for her hard work has reminded me of her value at New Solutions. I look forward to her achievements and contributions in 2012.
The beginning of the year brought Jill, a new client buying a beautiful piece of Chesapeake Bay waterfront land. As well as The Leslie's, dear friends and clients of many years, settling into a new place in New Market. As well as another friend Larry, selling his home of a long time to start his retirement adventures.
Short Sales, Foreclosures and listing's sitting for a very long time have added to the frustrations of this year. However, the amount of time needed for each of these processes and the anxiety created with each one has had an upside. I speak of the depth of relationships formed and the relief felt by all when completed. Working together to manage to the best of our abilities all we do helps us all be better people.
Of those who could not sell, we have managed to rent 5 of our clients homes in order for them to have less of a burden, hold for a better market and/or purchase their new dream home while renting the old.
First time home buyer's continue to be a personal favorite. There is just nothing more rewarding than helping in this huge life changing event. Emily and Jerry, Griffin and Michelle and Brooke I look forward to our continued friendship through this upcoming year.
Their were also 8 clients we have been able to assist in obtaining a rental lease for this year and we certainly hope we are able to further assist you in any housing needs when the lease is up.
Also Joe and Vicky / Mac, I feel each of your homes couldn't be more perfect a fit, thank goodness considering the amount of time and effort you each put forth to acquire such perfect homes. It has been such a pleasure to work with each of you.
This year also brought our newest member of New Solutions, Matt Fischer. Matt brought with him a large knowledge base of the mortgage and real estate industry. He has gotten us approved with HUD for Real Estate held under this program and is currently feverishly bidding, buying, renting and selling these types of properties. We look forward to watching his continued success in 2012.
Also this year, looking back are all the people behind the scenes who make New Solutions what it is. Boni, Mary Ann, Theresa, Mr. Dunn, Ginny, Cheryl and Brian. Stacey, Shelly and Ed. Without each of your contributions and care we would just be another Remax (just kidding, kind of. LOL!). Also a shout out to all those who referred us business this year, we take great pride in providing above and beyond service and reduced expense and we thank each and every one of you for your trust in us.
As New Solutions, we remain committed to the people, the relationships, your needs and wants and we are committed to bring results that are personalized for each client's Mortgage or Real Estate needs.
Happy Holidays to one and all!
