The Beat Goes On

      THE BEAT GOES ON…is a very uplifting song from the sixties. The lyrics of that song
still surface in my mind whenever I spend time with my children, grandchildren and great
grandchildren. Had someone told me, when I was a young adult, that I would still be
practicing my trade long after becoming a grandmother, I would have been a bit surprised.
I am, however, still enjoying every aspect the real estate business.

      When I returned to the business after a health sabbatical, I was amazed at how, even
though the information process had changed, the pleasure of helping people with their real
estate needs remains a passion of mine. The people I meet, both purchasers and sellers,
are a joy to work with. Each day is a new beginning. Someone or many people may need my
help each day. I also get to learn from the people I meet each day.

      It has been almost a year since I have returned. I admit it has been somewhat of a roller
coaster ride. First to team or not to team, that was a question that took three or four
months to decide. Not to team, was the decision, or at least not just yet. Most likely I
will create a team under the umbrella of Keller Williams. Since I ran my own business for
years it was very difficult to become part of a team culture, though I truly respect the
teams that have been created here at KW.

      Newsletters are far more fun when everyone contributes to its production. Do you have a
list of great “Air B & Bs”, an amazing recipe for a casserole, that is easy to carry to a
potluck? Did you, your children, or family member win an award recently, or have a
birthday, wedding or something else to celebrate.

      I know that we now use Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and so on for social media, but
sometimes it is fun to share the old fashion way, using complete sentences and paragraphs.

     With all this said I shall start sharing with some of my favorite quotes from a book that
Lisa Kreutz sent me when I was recovering from shoulder surgery.

“The Cave you fear to enter contains the treasure you seek.”         by Joseph Campbell

“Experience is a hard teacher, because she gives the test first and the lesson after.”      by Vernon Law
