‘YOUR’ Life Matters…
In the news right now there are crazy things going on. Protests, police getting shot, politics with heated rhetoric, seems daily news breaks that breaks hearts.
Black Lives Matter, Blue Lives Matter, All Lives Matter shouts one group or another. It is difficult to absorb and much of it dividing.
I took the opportunity last week at our company’s monthly day long training event to make sure everyone was aware of our mission statement. To sum it up for you here in this month’s Homeward Bound: Your Life Matters.
We get up each day and approach work and life with a mission of putting OTHERS first. I told my team “whoever you are talking to, looking at, thinking about, whoever it is, in your mind say to yourself about them… your life matters”.
Yes! We love selling real estate, but the reason we do it better than most, I believe, is because we approach everyone and each other with that mission in mind: Your Life Matters. This way of thinking means we must go beyond what is required. One of my favorite restaurants, Chic-Fil-A, calls it 2nd Mile Service. I call it a better way to work and live.
This may help explain why we also do things differently than other real estate companies, like donating portions of our income to worthy causes.
And speaking of worthy causes…
We are still on a mission this year to raise $5,000 for Fairfax Inova Children’s Hospital!
The reason is because they do great work in helping kids fight through, survive and recover from nasty debilitating diseases and cancers that many times rob the life right out from young people. We want to help all lives, have a chance to live, and with your referrals we hope we can do just that.
If you know someone considering buying or selling a home, could you refer them to our team? Not only will they benefit from our award winning service, but we donate a portion of our income on every home sale to the Fairfax Inova Children’s Hospital. Give us a call at 571-748-7360!
