Hopefully the Ground Hog Got it Right...
All I can say is WOW! I am sitting here at my computer thinking of how grateful I am for the value so many, like you, bring to my real estate business. Looking out my office window and there is not a cloud in the sky. Temps forecasted at 60 degrees today for the high. Spring is Springing!
For many across this great country it is still COLD, gray, and snowy! Others, never see a snowflake all winter long. It very well could be SUPER COLD today right here in Northern Virginia (but it's not). 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 seasons go, so do the seasons of life. I'm sure you have noticed, as I have, the older I get the faster the seasons move by. These "Seasons of life" got by so fast, my hope is that you enjoy each one or at least grow from each one. Yes, 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.
Spring is a time of action, people busy trying to get things done they could not do during the winter months. Sort of a renewing of the mind, spirit, of many things GOOD! Hopefully this special season will bring awesome happenings your way as your year unfolds. Wouldn't it be great to simply just grab your favorite book along with your favorite lounge chair, set it right down in your favorite spot somewhere, outside or next to your window, while looking out on a beautiful Spring day and simple 'RELAX'. Yeah, that would be nice. My hope is that you will get something like that on more than one occasion this Spring. Really enjoy the place you call home! The NEXT season will be here before you know it.
Unfortunately, there are some that will have a Spring Time they would much rather forget.
With all the beauty this time of year brings, there is also the ugly for some. Just down the street from where I am typing this, Fairfax Inova Children's Hospital has a full house of kids fighting for their lives. For them and their families, the Ground Hog seeing or not seeing its shadow 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 hoping this Spring will be a season of healing.
Your referrals help the kids...
Any one you know considering making a move, wanting to buy or sell their home, please refer them to me without hesitation. They will receive the guarantee I detailed above and you can rest assured your referrals will help the kids at Fairfax Inova Children's Hospital.
If you missed last months Homeward Bound Letter, we are on a mission to raise $5,000 for Fairfax Inova Children's Hospital, so we are donating a portion of our income from home sales to them. As you know Fairfax Inova Children's Hospital does a tremendous job of helping kids fight through and survive nasty life threatening diseases like cancers, leukemia and non hodgkin's lymphoma: stuff that many times rob the life right out of young people.
