Every November, I like to take time to review my business for the year. This time is another opportunity to pause, reflect and give thanks to God for his blessings to me. As I think back over the past 32 years of my career, even during the very challenging, early years, I've always had much to be thankful for.
To my clients of 2017 and those from years past, please know that I am grateful for both your business and your friendship. Year after year, more than 80% of my business comes from my past clients and community friendships. Without your business and referrals, in a very real way, I'd be out of business. I've enjoyed the privilege of helping many of you with the purchase of your first home, your second home, your last home, selling your parent's home or helping your children buy their first home. I value the trust that you've placed in me more than you could ever know.
I give thanks for the key partnerships that I've developed over the years with caring, trustworthy business people. I am prepared to personally recommend a mortgage loan officer, handyman, painter, home stager, flooring specialist, electrician, plumber, and others. In a very real way, these partnerships are an important part of my team. For the services that they provide for me and my clients, I am thankful.
During this time of Thanksgiving celebration, may you find reasons to be thankful every day.
