Hello Nelida,

What a beautiful day was today In Rockport!

So nice that I grabbed my laptop and headed to the beach to finish this newsletter to you all.

If you follow my Facebook, the last couple of weeks, have been very difficult with my recovery front on elbow surgery, so forgive my spelling and short words.

David and I attended Spears & Co awards & celebration within 48 hrs from my procedure but I'll say would not miss it, as we are humbled and grateful for the opportunity to have Alissa and Sam Spears's leadership and to celebrate their deserved success!

And thank you, each one of you who trust us with your real estate journey in 2023, we are looking forward to make 2024 the best and stay tuned for wonderful news soon!!!!

I am sending you all. my love and appreciation. Happy Valentines!

Warm cheers,


Can you show me some love?

I mean.. I would be grateful if you could give us your 5-star review and share your thoughts about your experience with us on Google.
