Valentine’s Day is over and I have to say it was hands down one of the best days I’ve had in a year. I had a glass of wine the night before with a friend and a fantastic dinner and we sat and watched the Grammy’s singing out loud with the best of the best.
Being single has great moments like last night making a plan on a moments notice knowing that it doesn’t matter that I was out late on a Sunday night. I knew I’d be up and answering email by 9 the next morning, even if it is in my pajamas. Monday’s are my computer days looking at stats and doing my weekly communication to sellers so most Monday mornings are spent in my pajamas.
I woke up this morning to a few surprising emails that just made my day!! They might even carry over into the whole month and possibly into the year.
It’s amazing how a few nice words and positive messages can have such and affect. You are probably thinking my Valentine must have really been good! But it wasn’t a Valentine message it was just good news times two. A few hours later I had two calls from friends telling me they had a friend who was thinking of selling their home and buying a new one.
All that good news, made me so motivated to get everything done a little quicker than usual. I want to get out sooner to my short sale listing, where the bank thinks the house is worth a lot more than it is, so I made a video of the property’s surrounding. I hope they will watch it and I hope they will hear me. My client is such a wonderful person who is doing everything right and has more patience than anyone I have ever work with. She deserves to have something great happen to her soon! I’m hoping with the good things happening in my life I can help spread them to her and to many others!
Receiving great news and being completely surprised by it, reminded me, that we can do that for someone else. What could you do this week that would change someone’s day. When you realize what it is, don’t hesitate, go do it. It’s like paying it forward. It was awesome to receive it.
“We… are reminded that in the fleeting time we have on this earth, what matters is not wealth, or status, or power, or fame – but rather, how well we have ‘loved,’ and what small part we have played in bettering the lives of others.” ‘Love’ matters. ” ~~ President Obama
This will be a Valentine’s Day that I will remember for a long time!

Great post. Perhaps the ups and downs of our real estate lives make us more resilient than most people. Many of our clients come to us when the difficulties of their lives are magnified. We can do so much to carry some of the load during their rough times.
I think you are right Leslie, it has made us more resilient and more understanding. Thanks for sharing your love today!
