There are days when it seems as if nothing goes right. The coffee spills before you even get a sip, the tire is flat on the car and the children all woke up with head colds. It’s one of those days when you wish you could just crawl back in bed, go back to sleep and wake up to a better day. We have all had them and they are no fun. In the Real Estate business, we have a saying: Some days you are the windshield and some days you are the bug!
It is hard to be thankful on the days when you are the bug, but I try. I think about my clients of the past and how many of them have become my cherished friends and wonder in what other profession could I change lives in such a profound way and also have the honor of becoming a trusted friend. In some cases, I have been blessed to become “The family Realtor” to multiple generations. This more than makes up for the days that I am the bug and not the windshield.
The Lake Oroville Real Estate Market this year has given me yet another reason to be thankful. There has been a pretty even ratio of buyers and sellers this year making it a bit easier to find that perfect fit at a good price. I am really excited about 2016 and the new Real Estate adventures that await me. I look forward to making new friends and spending time with old ones.
So whether you are having a Windshield day or a Bug day: I wish you a wonderful and THANKFUL Thanksgiving.
