Real Estate Broker/Owner with KD Realty - 408.972.1822 CA BRE#01366594

In my March Marketing Madness post, I made an offer.  


Subscribe to my NeedProbateHelp YouTube Channel 

You will be entered to win a $50 Gift Card of Your Choice.


I drew the name on April 4, 2019.  


The Winner Is


First of all, I want to THANK everyone who subscribed to my YouTube Channel. Your support means so much to me. 


Without further ado, the Winner Is


Mr. Jeff Dowler – The Relocation Dude



I notified Jeff and asked his preference for a Gift Card. 

Jeff and spoke for about 30 minutes. It was nice to catch up and of course, discuss our respective real estate markets. We are both in California, Jeff is Southern Cal and I am in Northern Cal.  


Jeff asked me, if instead of a gift card, would it be okay if I donated the money to a charity. 

Yes, of course!

He wanted the money to go to a cancer charity, a cause and near and dear to his heart.


We agreed on the American Cancer Society.


Charity Wins With Big Hearts Like Jeff Dowler.

Thanks, Kathleen. It was such a surprise to get the email about winning. I feel great about the donation, with all the family and others I know who have suffered with cancer. Thankfully I know a number who are survivors!!!

Congratulations to Jeff Dowler, CRS and kudos to him for donating the winnings.  That sounds so like something Jeff would do. 

Your headline reminded me of a winery a friend and I stumbled onto when traveling through Idaho a couple years ago.  It was Huston Winery but their Label is Chicken Dinner.  Kind of a crazy name for wine.  It's named after the road the winery is located on, which is a crazy name for a road. There's a story behind it, of course.
