Happy IN your home

Real Estate Agent with A Buyer's Best Choice Realty

I help people buy new homes for their families here in Johnson City, TN. I saw a quotation that reminded me of why I do what I do. The quote by G.K. Chesterton was posted on Gretchen Rubin’s blog, The Happiness Project. Here’s the quote.

    “There are no chairomantic cottagens of houses; there are no crowds of men. The colossal diagram of streets and houses is an illusion, the opium dream of a speculative builder. Each of these men is supremely solitary and supremely important to himself. Each of these houses stands in the centre of the world. There is no single house of all those millions which has not seemed to someone at some time the heart of all things and the end of travel.” –G. K. Chesterton

Of course I want you to be happy with your home. But I want more for you. I want you to be happy in your home.

Stay in touch. Ask me questions. Request information. Tell me about big, transitional events or small but meaningful occasions in your life—your son’s graduation, your daughter’s big victory, your once-in-a-lifetime vacation, your pet-child's funny picture. Email me, Twitter me @georgeblack, or post to my wall in Facebook or hook up with me on Google+.

Your home is important--it's often the physical and emotional center of life for us. I think this song by Cathy Fink captures it.

"HOME" by Cathy Fink


    Everyone needs a place that they like to call home

    There’s a sweet melody that embraces your heart

    And waltzes you back to your home

    A long day at work

    A long day at play

    A place you feel safe at the end of the day


    There are places to go and people to see

    Adventures to travel we know

    A world full of wonder awaits you and me

    But nothing quite calls me like home

    A bird in its nest

    A whale out at sea

    There’s a place in this world that’s just right for me


    There’s a home that I live in where soup’s on the stove

    And my key’s the right fit for the door

    But wherever I travel, wherever I roam

    My heart keeps the beat of my home

    A long day at work

    A long day at play

    A place you feel safe at the end of the day

I got to know you pretty well when we bought your home together. I’m still interested. Let me know how you are doing.

Great quote. I hadn't heard that one before, but it is very appropriate as many people have spent a few days in their homes sheltering themselves with loved ones, protected from the coming storms.
