It feels good to laugh!

Early morning on the beach.

I kept a low profile this last week because I was on a much needed vacation.  It has been an extremely busy last couple of years as I completed my Master’s degree in Real Estate, and joined the NextHome franchise.  I spent the week pleasure reading while sitting by a pool or on the beach.  The funny thing is, there wasn’t a day that went by that I didn’t so some real estate work.  I have buyers wanting to see homes, and sellers in escrow.  The work doesn’t stop just because I need some down time, and that is why I depend upon my very capable assistant, Bev Airehart, and Broker Associate, Randy Peters.  Having a team that works together and helps ensure that nothing gets overlooked–my clients are always taken care of and I know that they are in good hands while I am away.  I keep in touch, vacation or not, because I love what I do.  As I worked on my Master’s degree I realized that that is one of my “takeaways”–I have a passion for real estate, and working while I am on vacation, just a little, doesn’t feel like work at all.  So while sunning myself on a beach in Hawaii, I helped resurrect a nearly dead deal, received a new HUD listing, reviewed a Request for Repairs with my seller, and started working with a new buyer.  Thank you Bev for showing homes all week, and thank you Randy for doing the inspection on our new listing.  It takes a village to do real estate right:)
