Is Thanksgiving About a Meal or a Mindset?


Be Thankful  

These words from an unknown poet remind us to be thankful on Thanksgiving and all the other days, too.

Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire.
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

Be thankful when you don't know something,
for it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times, you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations,
because they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for each new challenge,
because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes.
They will teach you valuable lessons.

Be thankful when you're tired and weary,
because it means you've made a difference.

It's easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are also thankful for the setbacks.

Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles, and they can become your blessings.

I love the thought that Thanksgiving is less of a meal and more of a mindset. May your Thanksgiving be filled with friends, family, love and all that is important to you.

5 Profitable Home Projects


Here are five things you can do to increase the value and profit of your home.
​Are you thinking about selling?

Whether you're ready to sell now or after the holiday season, the goal is always to get the most profit from your home. I can help you find the right buyer, but several things can increase your home's value and get more money when you decide to sell.

Update Your Kitchen

Your kitchen is the most important room in your house. It's the hub of any home. So, before you sell, you want it to look its best. You don't have to go crazy to remodel. Small investments like paint, hardware, floors, or cabinet updates can pay off big.

Stand Out with a Touch of Technology

Adding smart technology like locks, thermostats, lights, and security systems allows your home to stand out. It's a relatively inexpensive addition that can sound good to buyers and increase the value of your home.

Don't Sleep on Normal Maintenance

Keeping your home maintenance up to date is vital to avoid expensive repairs, but keeping a record that everything is in check will give your buyers peace of mind when they inspect the house. You can create an online home history through sites like HomeZada so potential buyers can see your maintenance records.

Boost Your Curb Appeal

Curb appeal is always an essential factor when you're selling. Your home's exterior is the first impression buyers have when driving up to your home. Give your front door a new coat of paint. It might be worth investing in a new door if it's damaged. Trim your hedges and trees in front of your house. If you have a walkway, pressure wash it to look clean.

Have a Clutter Free Home

One of the first things any seller must do is to declutter their home. A cluttered home looks like you haven't cared for the house. Also, if there's a lot of clutter, rooms will look smaller than they really are.

When it comes to selling, you want to make the most money. Use these five tricks to help you get started. If you're ready to sell this quarter or wait, I can help you get the most for your home. Let's talk about the value of your home, give me a call to set up a meeting time. I look forward to hearing from you.
