Happy Valentines Day and Thank You!

Wednesday, February 14th, 2018

Happy Valentine’s Day! There is no better day to say “Thank You” to my clients and friends, and to express the love and gratitude I feel for each one of you, and for your support.

Each of the candy hearts in the photo represents a home I have sold. Whether it was a purchase or sale, each has a story behind it that starts with people and building relationships.

I am blessed to have met such amazing people and to have been a part of such incredible stories and lives. Your trust and loyalty are beyond special to me.

So I thank you for filling my heart (pun intended)! I know as time goes on I will be able to fill my heart even more, and meet others who will touch my life.

I wish you a day full of love, today and every day.

On Being Thankful…and Thanking You!

Monday, November 25th, 2013

We each  have so much to be thankful for…some more than others, but each one of us can list a few blessings – good health, loved ones, a roof over our heads, a job, food…at this time of year most people reflect on their lives and realize that there are definitely reasons to be thankful.images

Among my many blessings, I count the support of clients and colleagues, for without them I would not enjoy the bounty of my labor, nor the path it took to get there, and most importantly – the bonds of trust and friendship that are reaped in the process. Thank you to all of those who have chosen to work with me, who have placed their trust in me and enabled me to provide assistance and support to others. It is one of my biggest blessings to be able to make a difference in peoples’ lives, and for that I am humbled and grateful.

I hope that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday, spent with those you love. I hope that you take time to count your blessings and enjoy this crazy roller coaster we call life.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Have You Thanked Your Customers Lately?

Tuesday, March 27th, 2012

With the onslaught of social media and the digital age many people, myself included, lament the loss of humanization – that personal touch, face-to-face contact, handwritten notes and handshakes or hugs. In the interest of doing things faster and getting more accomplished in a shorter time, we tend to overlook the most important part of relationships, the things that make us stand out, seem more “real,” helpful and caring.

Humans need to feel appreciated, and if you are appreciated in your business you will be successful. Those who are appreciated are those who go beyond the norm – making sure their clients are satisfied, being available, moving around schedules to accommodate, and most importantly, listening and saying “thank you.”

We need to show people we appreciate them, whether it is our dry cleaner, the driver who let’s you in front of them, your client or anyone else. Saying “thank you” goes a long way.

One of the best books I read on the topic was The Thank You Economy, by Gary Vaynerchuk. Gary talks about how we can use technology and social media, and still thank our customers and colleagues with a personal touch. If you have not read it and you are in any kind of business, I highly recommend it. He truly understands that business requires a human element, and he shows how you can use technology to your advantage and the advantage of your clients.

So next time someone needs something from you, take a moment to help them, and do it with a smile on your face no matter how busy you are. Most importantly, thank them when you are finished. Thank them for choosing to call you, for asking for your help, for working with you. Remember, there are others out there they could have chosen, but they contacted you. If you are thankful, not only will it pay off in the long run, but it will make you feel amazing.

Lastly, please teach this important lesson to your children. They need to understand the power of gratitude (sadly, many do not). Thank you for reading my blog!

“A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all other virtues.”
Cicero

“You simply will not be the same person two months from now after consciously giving thanks each day for the abundance that exists in your life. And you will have set in motion an ancient spiritual law: the more you have and are grateful for, the more will be given you.”
Sarah Ban Breathnach

Expressions of Gratitude

Monday, August 17th, 2009

I recently received an email from a friend that really hit home. She asked if upon seeing members of the military, “have you ever wanted to say thank you, but didn’t, and later wished you had?”

dreamstime_5981667I know that personally every time I see a member of our military I have wondered how to say something to express my gratitude, but I never quite know what to say. ‚ÄúThank you‚Äù is nice, but sometimes you are in a hurry or they look to be in a hurry, or sometimes it seems like those words are not enough. Now there is a way to express your gratitude to these brave men and women in a way that will make them and you feel great‚it is a simple gesture and the creators are trying to spread the word.

Check out this video and then please pass it along!
