The Joy in a Home Pending on Thanksgiving

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold DRE #00697006

By the time you read this, I shall be 30,000 feet in the air without WiFi. Yup, on this day of November, I am moving my real estate business from my summer home in Sacramento to my winter home in Hawaii. It doesn't mean I sell real estate in Hawaii. It means I still sell real estate in Sacramento, I just run my base of operations from our winter home. Nothing much changes for me except a few more geckos enter my world.

Above is a photograph from our Thanksgiving at the Weintraub household in Sacramento. Seated are my brother-in-laws from Chicago. My husband bought what I call a tiny turkey. It was only 18 pounds. I'm used to at least 24-pounders and up for Thanksgiving, but he kept saying it's only us four. Well, he left out the cats.

You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: Pending Sale on Thanksgiving Day is Not Unusual. Not for me, anyway. I sell real estate on all days.

Aloha Elizabeth - those warm and fuzzy feelings can/do happen many days in real estate but I agree they can be especially nice around or on a holiday.

Elizabeth, looks like you had plenty of food, and remember your dining room.   Have a safe trip, and nice to be in Hawaii.

Hi Elizabeth: See you soon on Oahu for New Year's.  Can't wait to catch up and try some new restaurants. Right after having a closing at Christmas in California.

Hi Elizabeth- any time is a good time to buy a home. When we were looking in Leesburg, VA we had our agent write a contract on Easter Sunday!!!  And to echo Barbara Todaro is that you in the mirror???

Lottie Kendall Pretty uneventful flight on Hawaiian. Although I think I shall be flying Alaska from now on as they have a much later morning flight to Kona (and it is direct from SMF). I hate this getting up at 5:30 stuff.

Hella M. Rothwell, Broker/Realtor® I have a closing just before Christmas and another right after on the 26th. It would close on Christmas Day but our danged county offices are closed on Christmas!!

Looking forward to seeing you at the end of December, too. I can't believe how it's almost here. Doesn't quite seem like 11 months ago we planned that trip, does it?

Kathy Streib Easter Day? Good for you! That day is the second best day to buy a home, IMHO. It's often quite busy for me.

I'm smiling at the bowl of green beans, Elizabeth.  That seems like a lot for four people; but I did something really similar.  We ate green beans at my house for three days!
