It’s Groundhog Day…It’s Groundhog Day!

It’s Groundhog Day…thank you, Bill Murray!

At the risk of sounding like a broken record (and taking a cue from the movie Groundhog Day), there simply isn’t a better way to introduce this, than to repeat myself…so bear with me!

“Wow, life’s been a bit of a whirlwind lately…which should come as no surprise to any of you; since I haven’t updated this blog since July October! I know, I’m not supposed to say that  (just in case someone stumbles upon my website for the first time…I’m supposed to make them think this is a regular occurrence!), but that’s a risk I’m willing to take. I’ve built my business working with the most fabulous clients in the world, and almost exclusively by referral. Thank you, thank you, thank you…and please keep them coming. I promise to continue to take great care of whomever you entrust to my care.” “Since July October[copied from blog entry dated 10/29/10]

It’s true, “Since July October,” my world turned upside down! And not simply due to the unrest in our economy and the effect that it has had on the real estate market…which has made my job very interesting by the way! There is little dispute among the general public that Realtors are a necessary commodity in navigating their way through the “mess (and opportunity) of real estate!”

In November, I lost my very best girlfriend…who also happened to be my younger sister. She died very suddenly and unexpectedly, leaving a hole in my heart and a laundry list of action items…talk about tyranny of the urgent! Just about everything took a backseat to caring for the needs of her family. My colleagues and the team that I have built around me stepped in to help with my active buyers and sellers, and our family “circled the wagons.” She left behind an incredibly wonderful husband and two of the most fabulous teenage girls you’ve ever met, and it has been a humbling privilege to be actively involved in their lives! It is also a humbling privilege to be involved in yours…I mean that with the utmost sincerity! Thank you.

I continue to spend much time with my brother-in-law and nieces, but I am back in the office and back to work “full-time.” My clients have been well cared for over the last couple of months, by myself and others, but admittedly, my marketing (and blogging) has been neglected…as a result, I’m feeling a bit disconnected from you. As we enter February, I’m looking forward to touching base with you more often and am asking for your help by way of your continued referrals. I promise to take great care of whomever you send my way.

It’s Groundhog Day…thank you, Punxsutawney Phil!

No shadow…Spring is near! This will come as welcome news to family and friends in the midwestern and eastern United States who are buried under several feet of snow today! It will also come as good news to many of my selling clients who are waiting “until spring” to put their homes on the market…and my buying clients who have been waiting for the inventory to be a bit less sparse throughout Folsom, El Dorado Hills, Granite Bay and the surrounding communities.

Thanks again for giving me the opportunity to make your real estate dreams come true…and Happy Groundhog Day!
