Thanks And Gratitude


It's time for thankful reflections of gratitude. We are thankful for the continued ultra low interest rates that are enabling many to buy a home. We are thankful for confident Buyers and realistic Sellers. Real estate Agents that are helping Buyers and Sellers gain perspective to navigate these challenging times and not whining as they help them accomplish their goals.


We are thankful for the opportunity that young families can achieve and enjoy the American Dream of home ownership due to today's low prices. For the amazing loan programs available that allow for a magical buying experience. The fine standards of practice in the Northern Nevada real estate industry including escrow officers, lenders, inspectors, as well as Agents. Together we have a wonderful service oriented community of true professionals that help and protect the public as they should. We are grateful to have such quality professional peers to work with.


We are thankful for the scenic beauty and wonderful people of our communities. The life enhancing opportunities available for our children such as Pop Warner football and cheerleading and the many other superb youth organizations filled with great civic-minded volunteers. We are thankful that the Youth are still and always important in our communities, and that Values are respected and a way of life for most. We are thankful for our many Seniors that stay active in the community and impart their experience and wisdom so we don't lose our way.


The plentiful water we had this year is cause for thanks. The Valley was green well into Fall, and the crops abundant. We are thankful for the many community events where we play and celebrate together. That we can enjoy free concerts and movies in the park, parades, Wine Walks, and more communal activities where we visit with friends and make new ones. That people still stop to help one another. People still say hello to strangers with a smile. Drivers are courteous - let you in rather than cut you off. The right to vote and the many freedoms we enjoy in this great country of ours.


Our Advice: We are especially thankful for the incredible strength and support of our amazing community as we suffered the passing of a loved one this year. We are eternally grateful for the love we needed and received during this incredibly trying time. Be thankful for your health, your family and your community. Be thankful for the strength and understanding to carry on when you have a hiccup in the well-being of one of the above. Be thankful for the ability to learn the lessons coming to you during such times, and the good that will result. Every cloud has a silver lining ... every cloud. Be an example of gratitude and be thankful for what is ... not resentful for what isn't. The real estate market is what it is today, not what it was yesterday, or what it will be tomorrow. Be thankful you can establish your priorities and keep the reality of real estate challenges you might be encountering in perspective - its only money and, thankfully, you can get that back. You can't get back health and the time with your family so keep both strong and plentiful and be thankful that you can.


Maintain a grateful awareness year 'round and you'll find much sweetness in your life. These are the good old days... be thankful we can share them together. We are very grateful to have so much to be thankful for.  


When it comes to choosing professionals to assist you with your real estate needs... Experience is Priceless!
