This is NOT about REAL ESTATE!

Well, here I go again---after a brief break, I have decided to "commence" writing small pearls of wisdom.  Tonight my heart is full of joy because our real estate family has a new baby--Eloise.  Eloise Sue was born to a 2 nd generation agent of mine.  For now, her sweet mother, Mardi Sue has decided to break from the real estate chaos and raise her "chillen!"  A special congrats to Nathan, Mardi and Reis as they welcome this precious life into their family.
I guess, no I know, Terry would be very upset if I failed to mention he and Jackie are the proud, proud grandparents.  Speaking of  Jackie and Terry, I am so happy to have "chosen"  them as my family.  Not just because they now have a houseboat, but because they are good and genuine people.  Jackie's "genuine attitude" is illustrated best in her innocent questions.   I still love that moment in time, when she asked me if I thought houses had "quit sellin.?"  Now, that one perplexed me!  I decided to help her past this fear by responding in a way, that would calm her nerves. My response was quick and to the point.  "Yes Jackie, I think all the buyers already have a house."  She laughed, like maybe she did not quite believe me. That was 5 years ago and she looks daily for the elusive buyer.  
Married to Jackie for 30 years,Terry is a Marine through and through--tough and organized!.  Terry, thank you for your service to our country during the first desert storm.  You are loved and appreciated, just for that, never mind, you are a big teddy bear with a slightly "sentimental" side.  Actually, you are sentimental enough to be called (lovingly) a cry baby!" Today Terry, you have the right to cry those tears of joy and pride.
And--Yes, Jackie we all have A LOT more houses to sell--but not tonight.  Tonight,  is about family! 
My thoughts and prayers are with you.


  1. Good one Gwen, I think that pretty much speaks for the rest of
    the Metro Broker family. What a nice piece on some wonderful

    parents. Love those guys. You're a great lady Gwen, proud to
    know you.
