Coffee Cup Wisdom

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Mid-Willamette

I love my coffee.  Straight up black at home and work, but when I'm out with friends, meeting clients, or just wanting a break, it's a grande Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks - with whip!

One of my favorite things to do is read the little "The Way I See It" quotes on the sides of the cup.  A while back they "decided" they were going back to the original look and I thought the quotes were gone forever - tragedy!  But no, at this point at least our local Starbucks on Pacific Blvd. at the Fred Meyer is back to having the cups with quotes.  This of course was also after the Christmas red cups during the holidays! 

Anyway, I was sitting in a real estate accountability group meeting on Tuesday, and a friend of mine came in with her venti cup.  On the side of it was the following quote:

havent-got-a-prayer:  noturavergeprep:  The Way I See It #299

(This isn't my hand, but I managed to find a picture online)

What an inspiration!  I strive to be the kind of real estate broker that aims for this type of transaction.  Whether it's someone buying their first home, or a seller trying to get their home sold, I want to be that one agent that wins races & moves mountains.  While I know that's a lofty ambition, isn't is said that "If you shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you'll end up in the stars"?

That's a beautiful quote and I know you are a realtor who goes above and beyond for her clients!  (Yes I love my coffee too and the Starbuck's quote too!)

Hi Kristin. Lofty ambition...yes. Achievable...also, yes. I think you look like a mountain movin' kind of girl! I'm a coffee fanatic, too! Here's my favorite coffee quote: Caffeine isn’t a drug, it’s a vitamin!!!
