Do You Trust the Ground Hog to Get It Right?


All I can say is WOW!  I am sitting here at my computer typing away, thinking of how grateful I am for the value so many, like you, bring to my real estate business. I’m looking out my office window and there is a sprinkling of clouds and temps forecasted at 70 degrees today for the high.  Spring is Springing! 


For many across this great country it’s still COLD, grey, and snowy! Others, never see a snowflake all winter long.  It very well could be SUPER COLD today right here in Mendocino County.  One thing is for sure, this winter season is coming to an end.  It does every year without fail. 


Just like the 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” go 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.


Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 sums up “seasons of life” better than I can…


There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:

a time to be born and a time to die,

a time to plant and a time to uproot,

a time to kill and a time to heal,

a time to tear down and a time to build,

a time to weep and a time to laugh,

a time to mourn and a time to dance,

a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,

a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,

a time to search and a time to give up,

a time to keep and a time to throw away,

a time to tear and a time to mend,

a time to be silent and a time to speak,

a time to love and a time to hate,

a time for war and a time for peace.


So, what does this have to do with you, your home and real estate? 


Well, 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. 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 simply ‘RELAX”.  Yea, that would be nice.  My hope is that you will get to 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.


Like it says in Ecclesiastes, with all the beauty this time of year brings, there is also the ugly for some.  Just a few minutes from where I’m typing, Project Sanctuary of Mendocino County is helping the victims of abuse on a daily basis. For these victims, the Ground Hog seeing or not seeing its shadow is the furthest thing from their mind.


Your Referrals Help the Victims of Abuse…

As you may have heard, Project Sanctuary of Mendocino County helps victims of abuse by providing vital services such as counseling, empowerment groups, shelter, and more.  We are thankful to have such a wonderful project in our community, doing such great work to help heal men, women, and children. 


Even though we are eager to enjoy Spring, others are simply hoping to be safe and supported. This is why we, here at The Nicoll Pallini Group, have resolved to do what we can to help. 


As you know, Project Sanctuary of Mendocino County depends on sponsorships and donations to help in their work with the victims of abuse.  So we have pledged to donate a portion of our income from home sales to Project Sanctuary. Our goal is to raise $20,000 to help them in their quest to help Heal and Comfort many survivors. 


This is where you can help.  

Life moves fast for some and we are eager to make the Home Selling or Home Buying experience a smooth and rewarding one.  Over the last decade of helping hundreds of families sell their home and/or buy another, we have met some wonderful, loving, caring people.  People like you! 


For anyone considering a move that we help, you can rest assured that not only will they get the Five Star Service we are known for, but that a portion of the income we receive from the transaction will go toward a very worthy cause.


Your Referrals Really Do Help the Survivors…   

If you know of anyone considering buying or selling real estate, please send them our way or let us know who they are and we will call them.  I want to make it easy to refer your friends, neighbors, associates or family members considering making a move.

The best number to reach me at is 707-605-0426. 


You and your referrals mean more than ever to my team and I.  As we move forward in this new season, please know we are extremely thankful for you being a special part of our business. 


With All My Appreciation,
