Hello Friends! 
The spectacular fall colors and the cooler temps tell me that November has definitely arrived and that the holidays will be here before we know it. For me, just before the hustle and bustle become too much, I like to take a moment to reflect and be grateful for all of my blessings.  One of those blessings is that I get to do what I love—I truly love my job. Without a doubt that is because I have the best clients anyone could ask for. I am truly grateful for each and every client as they have made a significant difference in my life and these friendships I have made throughout the years have been the true blessing of my career. 

One of the greatest parts of the holidays is the wonderful traditions involving family, friends, and food!  To help keep a balance, check out the valuable insight given by ConnectedHealth’s Rita Singer,RD, LDN, CLT for smart nutrition during this special time of year.
Are you hosting Thanksgiving this year? For some this task seems insurmountable with all that entails. When it comes to getting the house ready for guests, this list will outline 10 Tiny Steps to do get your house ready for welcome party guests.

Take a look below to see what Zillow if forecasting for the 2017 real estate season.  If you are looking to buy or sell your home next year, consider connecting with me NOW to set the stage to capitalize on next year’s real estate market.  I would love to share my expertise on the changes to put in place now to get maximum value when you go to sell.

Keeping your best interest at the forefront is my top priority!
November is full of fun things to do with family and friends.  Have a great month!
