Labor Day Remains
EHT SDRAWKCAB YADILOH

In case you aren’t sure of the title…

it’s Labor Day. The Backwards Holiday. Every year when it rolls around I wonder why it’s named Labor Day and can’t help making the same point. Since it’s a Holiday intended to be just that, a Holiday – we would think a better name may be Relax Day or Lazy Day or Off Day or Sleep in Day, maybe even Do-Nothing Day, something other than Labor Day. After all, we know what Labor means. And many will likely be celebrating Labor Day by Laboring. Read More.

You don’t have to be a weather person to predict the weather this time of year. We all know… it’s the hottest time of the year. But that’s not all that’s hot. The economy is red hot too. By all measures the best economy in 20 years or so. Read More.

Happy Valentines Day to You and Yours!

We were led to believe when we were young that Valentine’s Day was reserved ONLY for those closest to us. That it was weird to wish strangers or acquaintances a Happy Valentine’s Day. That would be equal to telling them we love them. But aren’t we suppose to love others?

Of course, we are bringing up Valentines because it’s February – the month for Valentine’s. And, it’s a big deal – bigger than just flowers or dinner with that special someone. Read More!

And The New Year’s Resolution is…

Round about this time of year most begin to make resolutions.  We think the idea is to resolve to be better, do better or accomplish something grander in the NEW year.  However, for whatever reason most fall short of keeping a resolution let alone achieving them! I for one have been guilty of it. How about you?

There’s a great book that helped our team dramatically improve our follow through on achieving important goals and I want to share it with you – as sort of a Happy New Year After Christmas Gift.

Before we share the book details, here is my TWO-PART resolution to you and anyone you know considering selling the place they call home! Read More.

HOME’WARD BOUND!

There is a famous saying “No one is useless in this world who lightens the burden of another.” At Richmond Realty – we agree! This quote has added meaning this time of year with the holidays upon us.

With the current year coming to a close, holiday celebrations mean something different to everyone. We believe them to represent joy, peace, gratitude and selflessness. If you look around, you will notice a giving spirit exists unlike at any other time of the year. Why can’t it be that way every day of every year? It can. It just takes effort. Here is what we are doing and how you can help. Read More!

November is one of my most favorite months of the year. The leaves begin to fall, weather cools, football is on, and Thanksgiving holiday has all the family together.

We call it the Thank You Month. An extra opportunity to say Thank You for being a valuable part of our historic business. As most begin to prepare for the Holiday season, plan Thanksgiving get-togethers and the like, it’s easy to become wrapped up in all that we have to do to ensure a fun, joyful time for all we are responsible for and overlook all that we have to be thankful for. Gratitude though is an attitude that is contagious! Read More!

Moms and Halloween!

It’s creepy and it’s kooky — and it’s Mom’s favorite low-stress holiday! According to mom after mom, those infamous “big name” holidays—you know which ones we mean—are sometimes more headache than highlight. The pressure! The presents! The out-of-town guests or out-of-town travel, the cooking and cleaning, the expense! But Halloween—that’s a different story. More than two-thirds of Mom’s are involved in celebrating with their families. Read More!

Our moms always used to tell us “do this, do that, don’t do this, don’t do that”. As all kids do, we questioned their words at the time but with the benefit of hindsight, we can safely say just about everything they told us to do was the right thing. So, it’s very easy to say that our moms were, and are, very wise women.
