Gratitude 1.0: A very special delivery from very special clients.

Real Estate Agent with Thompson Company, REALTORS® MD594797

When I arrived at Thompson Company's office meeting today, I was greeted by a sweet surprise.. a very special delivery from very special clients, and all the way from New Mexico! 

You might have guessed it already... but, yes, it totally did make my day. It's these kind of moments, the heartfelt thank yous and words of gratitude that motivate me, that drive me to become a better person and REALTOR® today than I was yesterday, to research just one more thing before calling it a night, to rearrange my schedule, to try a new marketing approach, to find the best vendors, to learn, to grow, to persevere, and thrive in this - at times crazy - world of Real Estate.

I work for the smiles at the closing table. I work for thank yous! I could not imagine a more rewarding career.. witnessing and being part of my clients' real estate and life journeys is very special to me. And I am touched by every card, birth announcement, invitation, house-warming, and just-to-say-hello text or call... I appreciate them, and you, I am grateful for every connection, opportunity, client, friend, and happily join in the fun to celebrate all the things with all my clients big extended family. 

Thank you Andrea!

Kyle and Audrey, you will always have a special place in my heart, too! Perhaps I will make it to New Mexico one day, and we can meet again. Enjoy your beautiful family, and your beautiful new home! Thank you!! 


P.S. Need a REALTOR® in New Mexico, or any other corner of the country? Please reach out. I work with the very best, and will put you in touch. 


With a grateful heart,
