It’s Tax Time – or is it?

In case you all didn’t hear, the federal government has decided that no Americans need to pay their taxes this year. Everyone gets a free pass…APRIL FOOLS! Sorry if we got your hopes up. You had to know Uncle Sam would never pass up a chance to have his hands in your pockets, didn’t you?!?

Deadlines for filing those personal income tax returns are upon all of us. Most people don’t mind paying taxes as long as they are being put to good use. The waste – or at least, the perception of waste – is what bothers people more than anything.

Both of these days mentioned above are conversation starters – one full of funny stories, the other maybe not so much. But by comparison there are few days more memorable or exciting than the day you buy your dream home. That day is supposed to be fun, exciting and full of great feelings of accomplishment. This is why we offer guarantees and assurances to our clients. We call this Our Risk Removal System. Like our Guaranteed Sale Program: Your Home Sold at a Price Agreeable to You or We’ll Buy It*. And our VIP Buyer Satisfaction Guarantee: If You Are Not Happy With Your Home, We Will Buy It Back!*. What’s our point? Well, the reason we offer these programs is to provide above & beyond service to our clients so that they not only feel comfortable working with us, but they can get to the closing table with less stress!.

Spring is the time of year people feel a jolt of energy to do things – clean their home or office, get back in the gym, or maybe sell or buy a home! Maybe you or someone you know is currently looking or considering this life changing event. That’s great! We are here to help with that. Whether that’s with 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.

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.

Not only will they benefit from our award winning service, but we 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:

  1. You can pass along our business card to them, we have enclosed a couple here for that purpose.
  2. 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.
  3. Of course you can always call us direct as well at 718-608-4892.

You and your referrals mean more than ever to our team. As we move forward in this new season, please know we are extremely thankful for you and you being a special part of our business.

Thank you in advance for the referrals.

With all our appreciation,

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 for 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.
