What’s Your 1 Thing For the 4th Quarter?

I know the 4th quarter officially starts October 1st, but I always consider September the 4th quarter. Rumor has it September is the new January, and it gives you 3 months to get things under contract and closed before the end of the year. For me it’s always been a great time to refocus after…

What’s Your Why?

It’s Labor Day weekend. For many it marks the end of summer, back to school and the end of white jeans until next season. But it was created to celebrate the achievements of American workers. Which makes it the perfect opportunity to check in on your why. Why do you work so hard? It’s easy…

I’ve Been Waiting For This!

The boys go back to school next Wednesday! The real kind of school where they leave the house, are gone for a full day and get to interact with other kids. (I know the kids went back for a bit at the end of last year, but Alex stayed remote, so it didn’t feel like…

Perfectly Imperfect

I always have been, and always will be – proud to be an American. Does it mean I agree with everything, of course not, but at the end of the day I am grateful for our country and all of her imperfections. The vastness, the variety, and ability to experience so much. We as individuals…

Bonding With Buyers Agents

I used to dread calling Buyers agents after an offer review when they didn’t get the house. It’s never fun to deliver bad news, but I’ve found that if you lean in, there can be some great bonding moments that happen. Because at some point, we are all Buyer’s agents. For that specific property I…
