Prickly Pear Jelly, ActiveRain, and The Value of Connections

Had the pleasure of sharing lunch with Mike Jones with Sunstreet Mortgage on Tuesday this week.  I have enjoyed working transactions with him in the past, and look forward to future endeavors.  When I got the message through LinkedIn about meeting, I said, "I'm in!"

First off, I was gifted with the fruits of the desert, Prickly Pear Jelly AND Prickly Pear Syrup.  Mike says it's great on ice cream AND steak.  I'll try both!

Secondly, I was told about Kent's Heart & Hope Foundation, and invited to an Inaugural Brunch this month.

You may know Gabrielle Kamahele Rhind , the founder, through Active Rain. She's been prolific on here for years.    

Last but not least, Mike talked about his construction background and we began problem-solving in regards to a new-construction site I represent here in the the North Foothills in Tucson called Villa Milano Homes

I love Mike's mantra, and if you know him personally, you know he follows through:  

"I show up ON TIME. I do WHAT I SAY I'm going to do. I FINISH what I start. If I mess up, I 'FESS UP & I fix it. In the mortgage business, these 4 things are why you'll want to do business with me."  Mike Jones

You might want to look him up on Facebook too.  Don't know too many that take better photos of majestic Tucson.  

People are such gifts.  We all have so many layers, so many stories, and through each other, so many connections to make.  It's humbling.
