Hello! Happy Holidays!

It's that time of year again. The obligatory Happy Holidays email is on my mind. I am not much for obligatory but I am always up to send out some love!

We need it, don't we? And I am not afraid to express it - anywhere I can add value to the conversation with a little warmth, I am going to do it.

Which leads me to the real purpose of this email: The end of year reflection - and that reflection reveals that love is all there is.

Over and over again, in my work and in my personal life, I find that the lessons are the same. It is through the reflection of kindness, patience, and tolerance that we are most successful. Even in the realm of negotiations, when the conversation is tense because money is at stake, the fundamentals stay steady.

If I am kind, I am met with kindness. If I am honest, I am met with honesty. It might not happen immediately, but ultimately, this has been my overarching experience.

This has been a big year, with big changes (new company) and many homes sold. I am looking forward to another great year in 2019 with listings on the books and buyers ready for new inventory to arrive. But what I am really looking forward to is connecting with people in a way that makes us all feel seen, appreciated and yes, even loved.

This is it, our one and only opportunity to be here now. Every interaction I have is important, and the older I get the more I know how finite it all is.

I adore this line of work, I relish helping people and being of service. It is why I don't mind the long and bizarre hours. And I am grateful. Grateful for the trust I have been granted and the relationships I build with every transaction.

I hope you are also feeling the love and more importantly, giving some!

As always, I am here with an ear if you need one!
