Who Cares if the Ground Hog got it right,
Spring is STILL Coming. I promise.
Spring is Springing! Yay! I just came inside from shooting a video outside and WOW! It’s nice out! Yes I realize that when you get this and read it that it could be cold and rainy, but those cold days are just about over. Everyone loves Spring, primarily because it means… summer is near!
For many across this great country though, it’s still COLD, gray, and snowy! One thing is for sure, this winter season is coming to an end. It does every year without fail.
Just like the weather seasons come and go, so do the seasons of life. Are you with me when I say that these seasons seem to come and go faster and faster as well as the time?
Some of life’s seasons will be HOT and others will be COLD, some high and some low. The lows we want to move by quickly, the highs we want to stay in forever. But it’s the low points, those tough times, that I have learned the most from. All of the experiences through these seasons make me who I am.
So, what does this have to do with you and real estate?
Spring is a time of action, a heating up of the desire for a new place to call home for many. Maybe you or someone you know is right now looking or considering it. That’s great! We are here to help with that. Whether it be a list of the 10 best buys matching home buying criteria, or delivering top dollar on a home sale along with our written guarantee of the asking price, our award winning SYSTEM and TEAM are eager to help.
Unfortunately, there are some that will have a Spring Time they would much rather forget.
With all the beauty this Spring time brings, there is also the ugly for some. Just down the street from where I’m typing this, Partners in Housing Solutions is having to turn some away. For them and their families, Spring time is the furthest thing from their mind. Don’t get me wrong, these families long to see their kids out in the yard playing or riding their bikes – but for now, they are praying for help.
Through our Go Serve Big mission statement we are on a quest to raise $10,000 for Partners in Housing Solutions!
Chris and Drea are buying their first home!
In 2015, I was met with the lowest point of my life. My children were in foster care, I was on probation, and I did not have a stable living situation or the credit to support my current issues from being resolved.
With the care of Partners in Housing Solutions and New Beginnings, I was given an opportunity to plant my feet firmly on the ground and rebuild my life. My liaison created a relationship with gracious landlords that wanted to help someone like me.
I was given a chance.
For 27 months, I have been blessed to have a roof over my head, food on the table, and the case management necessary to retain my living situation. Without these programs, I would not have the ability to start the process of becoming a first-time homeowner, and for that, I am forever indebted.
As a leading non-profit, PIHS depends on Sponsorships and Donations to continue its leading-edge service. We proudly donate a portion of our income from real estate sales to PIHS to help them continue serving the needs of those who most need it in our community!
Over the decades of helping hundreds and hundreds of families sell or buy the place they call home, we have met so many wonderful, loving, caring people. We are so grateful. Thank you for reading over this month's Homeward Bound, and thank you for referring anyone you know considering buying or selling to my team. They will be in good hands and a very worthy cause will benefit as well.
Go Serve Big!!!
