'Ole Glory Coast to Coast' - Week 2 (a June AR Challenge)

By
Real Estate Agent with Big Block Realty 858.232.8722 CA BRE# 01261476

This week I came by the photo I'm using for my second entry by accident, I was looking for a photo for my marketing and serendipitously came across this one:

 

This reminds me of two things:

 

  1. The property was for sale, but our freedom is not. In fact, our military pays many prices including the ultimate sacrifice to ensure our freedom isn't...
    sold on the cheap. I have intense respect for our Veterans and Active Duty Military: my Great Grandfather (WWI Army), both Grandfathers (WWII Navy & Airforce), my Step-Father (Korean War Airforce) and Uncle (Vietnam War Navy) are all Veterans.
    I serve many clients annually that are Veterans and active duty, they gift us our freedom while paying the price that comes with what they risk. The price is everything from staining their marriages, risking there lives and coming home wounded mentally and physically among many other risks.
    Thank You for your service.

  2. This was my first manufactured home I ever sold and I learned a lot from it.
    Located at the famous Champaign Village of Welk Resort in Escondido, CA. And who helped me learn a lot, our very own John DL Arendsen and his lovely bride whom educated me on this very different market. Thanks John!

Top of the morning Thomas J. Nelson, REALTOR ® e-Pro CRS RCS-D Vets .  I always enjoy my listings that have the Stars and Stripes flying.  Gives me an immediate step ahead feeling.  I am struck by the power of your first line... The property was for sale, but our freedom is not.  

Thank you for your time with your participation.  Mark

Good morning, Thomas... freedom is not free and it's not for sale. Freedom can only be something we protect and fight for. I always love it when one of my listings displays an American flag.
