We have so much to be Thankful for!

Real Estate Appraiser with Appraisal Pros in Texas

Here I sit at my desk in Hutnsville, Texas with appraisal reports to finish before I start my Thanksgiving cooking and baking and concentrating on report typing is a little difficult as thoughts of all I have to be thankful for keep entering my mind.


It occurred to me that I have so much to be thankful for this holiday season....first, my health.  For a 62 year old real estate appraiser I am in relatively good health, I have a wonderful family, a nice home, wonderful friends and plenty of work.  I feel very blessed and wish the same of all of the Active Rain community.

I have lived in Europe and visited some other foreign countries and I realize that we live in the best country in the world! And for that I am also thankful.  I'd like to take this time to thank our troops who are working so hard to keep our country the best in the world.  I know they are far from home and family and I appreciate their sacrifice.


Happy Thanksgiving to all!

I am thankful you are doing your job of getting those appraisals out!  I just had an appraiser who put off his appraisal report for one week because of his Thanksgiving plans!  We close on December 2nd!!  Thanks for being conscientious about doing your work!  Wish you were up here in Kansas!

Awww, thanks!  But I have to admit I am going to inspect a property late this afternoon as a result of a last minute call from our local bank here and she won't get that report until early next week.  And honestly, I really wish I would have said I would inspect next week too...LOL...but well, I didn't so that's that.  I'm thankful for this local bank (they pay full fee and don't push me)  and I try to help her out in an emergency which this is.   


Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope you are enjoying the cooler weather as we come to a close for 2012. This coming year should really be wonderful for real estate.

You must be the youngest looking 62 year old I have seen in a long time.  We are very fortunate to live in this wonderful (and beautiful) country. 

Thanks, Alisa!

I hope you are having a most productive month as home buyers continue to take advantage of the very low mortgage interest rates.
