Happy Valentines Day to You and Yours!
Love Covers a Multitude of Wrongs
I was cruelly led to believe when I was young that Valentines Day was reserved ONLY for those closest to us. That it was weird to wish strangers or acquaintances a Happy Valentines Day. That would be equal to telling them I love them. But aren’t we suppose to love others?
Of course I’m bringing up Valentines because its February, the month for Valentines, and it’s a BIG deal… bigger than just flowers or dinner with that special someone.
I would like to share with you some words that convey the meaning of love to me: Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres.
When you read these words, it sure sounds like love is NOT reserved for just those close to us but rather it’s a verb lived out on and for others. Others being anyone and everyone. I’m so proud of my team for buying in to and adapting in action LOVE towards clients, prospects, vendors and even our competition. I’m confident this is why we have been recognized as the real estate sales team others measure themselves by.
So the secret to our success is pretty much summed up in this months newsletter theme: L-O-V-E. Not as a noun, but as a VERB. In fact, when we find ourselves with a decision to make, it’s pretty much impossible to go wrong filtering through this question: What does love require of me?
We do love helping people sell and buy the place they call home. We love helping our past clients (who are never really past clients) increase their wealth investing in real estate. We love giving a portion of our income and time to Worthy Causes. I love watching team members grow both personally and professionally. I love competitors as it makes us better at helping others get what they want. And people say we are better than good at doing just that! And we work each day to SHOW love toward everyone. It is what is required of us (our belief system).
Also, as you know, we love making guarantees! Like our Seller Guarantee: Your Home Sold or We’ll Buy It! And we guarantee that a portion of our income WILL go to a very worthy cause like…
Project Sanctuary of Mendocino County!
We are on a mission to raise $20,000 for Project Sanctuary of Mendocino County. We do this by donating to them a portion of our income from homes we sell. As you may know, Project Sanctuary provides life changing resources to men, women, and children who have suffered from sexual assault and domestic violence. They provide services such as emergency and confidential shelter, group counseling, 24/7 crisis response, and transitional housing. They are an exceptional group of professionals and we are so fortunate to have their top notch organization in our community! So when you or anyone you know does business with us, not only do we deliver on our five star service, you can rest assured a very worthy cause benefits as well.
If you or anyone you know is considering selling, give me a call or pass on my number. Thank you in advance for your referrals! My number is 707-380-8057.
Over the last thirteen years of helping families sell or buy the place they call home, we have met some wonderful, loving, caring people. People like you! And, referrals of those you know considering buying or selling will receive the five star service we are known for and the survivors of abuse at Project Sanctuary will benefit as well.
I hope you and your family had a wonderful Valentine’s Day filled with lots of joy and happiness!
