Who Cares if the Ground Hog got it right, Spring is STILL Coming. I promise.

Spring is Springing!  Yay!  I just came inside from shooting a video outside and WOW!  It’s nice out!  Yes I realize that when you get this and read it that it could be cold and rainy, but those cold days are just about over.  Everyone loves Spring, primarily because it means… summer is near!

For many across this great country though, it’s still COLD, grey, and snowy! One thing is for sure, this winter season is coming to an end.  It does every year without fail.

Just like the weather seasons come and go, so do the seasons of life.  I just turned 51, my youngest is in college, and my oldest is off figuring out work and life.  Are you with me when I say that these seasons seem to come and go faster and faster as well as the time?  My wife reminded me last night we have shared 38 of my birthdays together.

Some of life’s seasons will be HOT and others will be COLD, some high and some low.  The lows we want to move by quickly, the highs we want to stay in forever.  But it’s the low points, those tough times, that I have learned the most from.  All of the experiences through these seasons make me who I am.

So, what does this have to do with you and real estate?

Spring is a time of action, a heating up of the desire for a new place to call home for many.  Maybe you or someone you know is right now looking or considering it.  That’s great!  We are here to help with that.  Whether it be a list of the 10 best buys matching home buying criteria, or delivering top dollar on a home sale along with our written guarantee of the asking price, our award winning SYSTEM and TEAM are eager to help.

Unfortunately, there are some that will have a Spring Time they would much rather forget.

As you know, we love making guarantees! Like our Buyer Satisfaction Guarantee: Love the home or we’ll buy it back! Or our Seller Guarantee: Your Home Sold or We’ll Buy It! And we guarantee that a portion of our income WILL go to a very worthy cause.

We are on a mission to raise $10,000 for the Wounded Warrior Project®. We do this by donating a portion of our income from homes we sell to them! As you know Wounded Warrior Project®(WWP) serves veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound, incidental to their military service on or after September 11, 2001 and their families. On that date, America watched in horror as approximately 3,000 people died including hundreds of firefighters and rescue workers. Many warriors note a sense of duty to volunteer for the military following these tragic events.

Who do you know considering buying or selling a home you could refer to our real estate sales team?

Your referrals will receive our top notch service & we also donate a portion of our income on every home sale to the Wounded Warrior Project.

We want to make it easy to refer your friends, neighbors, associates or family members considering making a move, so here are your options:

  • You can pass along our business card to them – we have enclosed a few here for that purpose.
  • You can go to http://www.BlakeTeamReferrals.com and enter their contact info online or forward the link to who you know considering a move.
  • Of course you can always call us direct as well at 718-608-4892.

Over the years of helping thousands and thousands of families sell or buy the place they call home, we have met so many wonderful, loving, caring people. We are so grateful. Thank you for reading over this month’s Homeward Bound, and thank you for referring anyone you know considering buying or selling to my team. They will be in good hands and a very worthy cause will benefit as well.

Go Serve Big!!

Why We Support The Wounded Warrior Project (WWP)

When we decided to create this program, it did not take us very long to agree on a charity to support. We have a very close family member who bravely fought on the front lines of World War II and was seriously injured; and more recently a close lifelong friend who served in Operation Iraqi Freedom. So this was the natural fit for our organization. This belief was only strengthened when we started to read more about their mission and how they serve their members. WWP serves veterans & service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound incidental to their military service. And with major advancements in battlefield medicine and body armor, more and more service members are surviving severe injuries. In addition to physical wounds, it is estimated as many as 400,000 service members live with the invisible wounds of war including combat related stress, major depression, and PTSD.

Our team rallies around our annual goal of raising money & donating portions of our income to helping this worthy cause. We are committed to providing outstanding results for both buyers & sellers referred to us by our past clients, friends, and others. Since WWP survives on sponsorships & donations from grateful civilians, we are happy to contribute and proud to support the brave men and women who literally put their lives on the line for our freedom.

Sincerely,

Hal Blake
