It's that time of year again. The holidays are upon us and we are flooded with sensory experiences, like no other time of year. From the sound of holiday songs, to the smell of baked cookies, the taste of eggnog and finally the visual presentation of cards arriving daily from family and friends. You can't help but think back to years past. To when you were a child, to the home you grew up in and the people that mattered most to you.
Whether those memories were good or not so good, we all go home mentally, at least for a while, during this time of year. The impact that a home has on our lives is so much greater than just providing shelter. The memories created in our homes last a lifetime and provide the most important gifts that life has to offer.
As Real Estate professionals or marketers serving this industry, we have all just experienced a few of the most challenging years imaginable, from a business perspective. I find it helpful to keep in perspective the fact that our core purpose has not changed; we are fortunate to be in the business of connecting people to their dreams.
Suburban or urban, ranch, colonial or contemporary; modest or extravagant. Every dream matters and we help make them a reality. We have much to be thankful for.
