Real Estate Broker/Owner with Hamm Homes

This morning I saw a sad thing.  A gal in are area was out shoveling snow with a walker.  I know this lady husband past away a couple of years ago and guess no one to help her.  I think she is at least 80.  I had a dentist appoint but pull my car over and told her to go in the house and I will shovel her walks and driveway.

I really do not know her but she said you are the Real Estate guy that puts stuff on the door.  I said Yes, that is me.  I will shovel half your driveway now and the other half when I get back from my dentist appt.  I was 5 mins late for my appt and when back and finish shoveling her driveway.

I will make it a point to shovel from now on for her.

Will Hamm that was a very kind thing for you to do.  Two of my neighbors use to have a difficult time shoveling snow, so I use to do their driveways when it snowed.  I hope when the day comes I need help there will be a neighbor who helps me as well.

What happened to the snow blower?   It is a very nice gesture to help those in need of help.

Dear Will,

Good thinking. I currently do not have any disabled neighbors, but shoveled for someone in another neighborhood for about 10 years. When you are snowed in, there are rarely any appointments anyhow and that gives us a chance for a little workout.
