The Little Things.......

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

Little things can make me really happy. Two days ago a neighbor who had worked for a contractor I knew came by. He helps me do things I am unable to tackle myself: roof raking the snow, fixing doors etc. I have a number of trees in my yard and I love hanging things from them. Some of the branches are too high for me to reach even with a ladder. So my neighbor who is significantly taller than I am, came by and moved a bamboo wind hanger and a put up a bird whose wings more in the wind. It was a little thing but it made me really happy. He's on vacation now in South Carolina. I hope he enjoys the check I gave him for a special dinner out with his wife.

When you think about real estate, it is time to focus. I have helped people for close to thirty years in all areas, and made the process not only simple but enjoyable. Why should you go it alone or settle for less? Call me and find a partner to help, direct and get you where you want to be.

The little things truly have the biggest impact. While I was out showing houses last weekend, a text from my daughter came in: "mommy" .. "yes, love?" .. "Just wanted to say I love you and how much I cherish all the things we've done together". Oh my heart! It put the biggest smile on my face, and while I loved being with my clients, I couldn't wait to get home to give her a big hug!

I definitely rely on others to help me around my house, as I am not very handy at all.  I am in awe of those that can take care of everything themselves.

Sheila- that was very kind of you to give your neighbor that treat. Even though he probably wasn't expecting it, I'll bet it brought a smile to his face.

Morning again Sheila.

Neighbors like that are difficult, or downright impossible to find.  I know in my neighborhood there are none of those.  Pity
