I’m very blessed to have amazing people around me and with all the hard work I put into my clients finding the perfect home, my investors finding a great deal, my local, state and national associations getting my undivided attention to detail on certain projects; I don’t find the time I’d like for the ones I love most.

Most know that all of my family is in Texas. That makes time with them precious. It also makes the friends and colleagues here in California, that much more imperative to me. I value having good people around me and I can easily drown myself in work and forget to connect with the people I care most about, mostly because it’s easy for me to get to the office early and stay late when I don’t have someone at home complaining about how much time I invest in my Real Estate world.

On this Sunday afternoon, I hope that you’re surrounded by love. I’m surrounded with work but I just spent the last 6 days with amazing friends, colleagues and mentors. I was very blessed to go to the RE/MAX Convention where over 4,500 people from over 50 Countries gathered to share ideas and network. It was great to meet new people and reconnect with my RE/MAX Masters family. Then I spent some time with some of my CVAR & TIGAR family. I really do work with some of the best people in the industry!

If you don’t feel blessed on this gorgeous afternoon, go find something to make you smile… a child’s laughter, your mother’s cooking, a wise word, a warm breeze. Make sure that you remember that you can only take memories with you… everything else is getting left here. What are you leaving behind (generosity, kindness, knowledge) and what are you taking with you?

And, a BIG Congratulations to my friend, fellow CAR Director and YPN, Sofia Aquayo! She just got engaged and is happier than I’ve ever seen her! Best of luck to you and George!
