Month at a Glance | December 2016
View this email in your browser
Hello Friends! 
It seems that the older I get the faster each year flies by and this year was no exception!  As we enter the last month of 2016, it is an ideal time to think about the accomplishments of the past year and to set the goals and dreams for 2017.

Continuing last year’s trend, I was very blessed to have another record setting year.  With over $45 Million sold, I closed on 107 homes over all which breaks down to 62 houses that I listed and sold and 45 families that I helped to find their new DREAM HOME.  It is a tremendous honor to work with each and every client and it brings me great pleasure to be instrumental in helping my clients to achieve their real estate goals.

If one of your goals for 2017 is to buy or sell a home, consider connecting with me NOW to set the stage for a successful transaction next year. I would be happy to extend my expertise to get you in the right place to realize your real estate dreams.
December is a magical time of year as we gather with friends and family to celebrate the many traditions that make this holiday season even more enchanting. We hope that this season finds you enjoying traditions from holidays past and creating new traditions surrounded by the love of family and friends.

Along with all the added festivities, December can also bring some additional stress to add to an already full plate.  The great team at ConnectedHealth shares ten tips to help you Skip the Stress and stay festive.
 Wishing you a beautiful holiday season and a new year of peace and happiness.
