On this special day, I want to remind you that I am here to assist with all of your real estate needs.

I am always committed to providing the highest level of service and expertise, and I am always available to assist you in any way I can.

Here are some fun and interesting Valentine’s Day trivia that you can use to impress your friends and loved ones this holiday:

  • The first recorded Valentine’s Day letter was written in 1415 by Charles, Duke of Orleans, to his wife while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London.
  • In Japan, Valentine’s Day is a time for women to give gifts to men, typically chocolates. A month later, on White Day, men are expected to return the favor.
  • The first home with a heart-shaped swimming pool was built in Arizona in the 1960s, and it has since become a popular trend for Valentine’s Day-inspired homes.
  • In medieval times, young men would draw the names of women from a box on Valentine’s Day. They would then be paired with their chosen woman for the next year, and they were expected to write love poems to each other.
  • The heart-shaped candy box is a popular Valentine’s Day gift, but it wasn’t always associated with love. The first heart-shaped candy boxes were made in the late 19th century, and they were marketed as a way to express love and affection.
  • The largest Valentine’s Day gift ever given was a 200-foot-tall balloon in the shape of a heart that was given by Richard Jarvinen to his girlfriend in 2007.
  • Valentine's Day "sweethearts" was first created on equipment made for lozenges.

I hope these fun and interesting trivia facts bring a smile to your face this Valentine’s Day! Here’s to a wonderful Valentine’s Day, filled with love, laughter, and many reasons to be grateful.

I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve all of your real estate goals.
