    Happy Freedom Month

    We practice our rights of freedom and debate its boundaries in politics, yet how often do we take time to reflect on what freedom means to us personally? Freedom is not a concept carved from stone; but is malleable and personal, always changing shape depending on where we find ourselves standing and the angle of our view.
    My personal definition of freedom is, the ability to act based on my convictions without external restriction or retribution. It is the ability to represent myself as I see myself to be, not having to hide or disguise who I am in order to pursue happiness, fulfillment, and growth. It is the power of free self-expression. Personal freedom is one of my top three values.
    Of course, there are boundaries to freedom. My actions should not hurt others or restrict their personal freedoms, and so this is the dance of conscience. Will what I want conflict with what others want or need? If so, how can I have the personal autonomy I need while respecting the freedom of those around me? I believe there is always a path for mutual free expression, when we respect one another. Today, as we prepare to celebrate Freedom Month, I offer the following quotes as food for thought and as writing prompts.
    “We must be free not because we claim freedom, but because we practice it.” ? William Faulkner
    “If we don’t believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don’t believe in it at all.” ? Noam Chomsky
    And I leave you with these questions: Which, if any, of these quotes resonate with you? What do you believe about freedom and how do you describe or define it for yourself? "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
    Beautiful famous words. Those words really come to life for us when you consider the idea of owning real estate, especially your own home. My guaranteed sale program is a solution to ‘the unlucky mishap’ in real estate of homeowners experiencing a catch-22. In fact, this is how successful businesses are built: Identify a problem and solve it. In today’s market, many homeowners really want to make a move, but are finding  themselves in a catch-22 – Do we sell first or buy first? They don’t want to end up stuck, owning two homes at once or none, at all. The solution to this dilemma is my guarantee: “Your Home Sold Guaranteed at a Price  Agreeable to You or I’ll Buy It*” My own revolution, so to speak, to the age-old dilemma of whether to buy first or sell first.

    OUR GUARANTEE to you, your friends, and family—

    For the month of July, anyone you refer to me who is considering making a move, I will guarantee in writing that their home will sell or we will buy it at a price acceptable to them. We just need to agree on the price and possession date with the seller. This is where you can help!

    There is some risk on my part in making such an incredible guarantee, but we are selling just about every home we list for market value, sometimes more, so there is no reason for any homeowner to fret about selling right now.


    As a result of working with over 5,000 families during my 20+ year career and through three documented recessions, we have developed a special market-proof program to quickly get an acceptable cash offer on any home at market value.


    A real estate team with experience, proven results and a give-back philosophy! This is where you come in… If you or anyone you know is considering making a move, we would like to offer them a FREE No-Obligation-to-Sell Consultation to discuss just how they can make their move, get what they want and do it with the least amount of hassle.

    Just like we are thankful for you and your business, I am confident your referrals will be thanking you for steering them in the right direction to getting their home sold!!!

    AND please remember, your REFERRALS help those in need!
