Happy New Year!!!!

2020 is here, can you believe it?

With the start of a New Year comes the list of new resolutions for the year, the excitement of new adventures, new opportunities and new relationships await all of us.

Having just returned from a magnificent trip to Iceland has given me a new perspective: Life is too short and we must take advantage of every single day and do what we love the most. And that is my number one resolution for the New Year... to continue building on current relationships as well as creating new ones. The pleasure of assisting my clients with one of their most precious assets, their home, continues to fill me with joy and satisfaction.
Here’s to new opportunities!

With all my appreciation.

Please make sure to check our GG Magazine section, as well as our top events in the area, by clicking on the "View entire message" at the bottom of the page.
There are so many wonderful winter activities to enjoy in our area, here are just a few...
There are two organizations near and dear to our hearts, Special Olympics and the Georgian Triangle Humane Society (GTHS).
We proudly donate a portion of our income from real estate sales to both organizations.

As you probably know Special Olympics has impacted the lives of its athletes in profound ways, most notably in building self confidence, friendships and self-esteem.

In 2019 The GTHS rescued 1,500 animals, performed 850 surgeries and saw 1,300 animals find new and loving forever homes .
And remember… Your Referrals Help Continue the Life Changing Work by Special Olympics and The GTHS! We are on a quest to raise $25,000 for these organizations!

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 hassle.

Simply call me direct at 705-441-5800 or forward my number on.
