This Memorial Day…

memorial day 2016It’s hard to believe Memorial Day is just around the corner.  I always think of Memorial Day as the true arrival of summer.  I know the air will be filled with the smell of BBQs and kids playing, a fortunate reminder of how much we have to be thankful for in our community.

But during this Memorial Day, I’d like you to hold in your heart and mind those families throughout history who have paid the ultimate price for the freedom we’ll all enjoy this summer.  Those who have fallen in service to the military should not be forgotten among our celebrations.

Sadly, we do not have to look very far into the past to remember those who have died.  Right now, there are those in our community whose sons, daughters, husbands, and wives will not be joining them this year.  I encourage you to show your respect and appreciation for those families.  Invite them to enjoy fellowship with you this Memorial Day.   Honor them and honor their soldiers by holding up a mirror to show the generous, grateful community we live in.

This is also an excellent time to teach our children what Memorial Day means.  Why not take an evening to make a connection with them by exploring some websites which talk about the history of Memorial Day.  (The History Channel is a good place to start: http://www.history.com/topics/memorial-day-history).

May your summer be a reward, and Memorial Day a time to recharge and remember the big picture.

About AmyCraft

I've made a commitment to serve the real estate needs of my community - one family and one home at a time. My real estate knowledge and expertise are completely dedicated to you. I am a Graduate of Champions School of Real Estate and came into the real estate profession with an education background. Prior to working in real estate I was the owner of a successful daycare center. My career as an educator was very rewarding and taught me many things that I believe I have benefited from in the real estate industry. I have learned such things as negotiating with people while always keeping their best interest in mind, listening to what they are saying, maintaining flexibility and understanding, performing multiple tasks simultaneously and how to be assertive yet remaining calm under the most stressful situations. A real estate deal may be the biggest financial transaction a person will ever make. I try to respond to peoples concerns and fears with as much information as I can provide. Most importantly, I want to make sure my clients are comfortable with a certain price range rather than trying to push the pre-approved amount on them. I'm not a pushy Realtor, but I'm aggressive when it comes to getting my clients what they want. Whether you're looking to buy or sell, I can get your home sold, or find you the home you've been dreaming of. Either way, my goal is to make your experience comfortable, guided, fast, and efficient. After all "Nobody Knows The Area Better Than A Good Neighbor".
