♫ “I Waaant You to Want Me…” ♫

…and the crowd goes wild!  And 15-year old me is jumping up and down, hands in the air, and screaming the iconic line of this most famous Cheap Trick song along with thousands of fans at the concert in Lisbon, Portugal. 


Even if you had to Google “who’s Cheap Trick?”, I imagine that we all have a common experience of our first live concert.  And the experience never gets old, whether it’s your first concert, or your 50th.  Each one is a barrage on the senses – the pulsing surge of the crowd moving to the beat, the dazzling lights that reflect in the faces of the fans, the roar of thousands as the band strikes the first chords of the signature song.  The sensory overload could keep you disoriented… except for the music.  The music anchors us in the familiar, grounds us in our anticipation of the next song, and the next.  The music is our “Big Why” – it’s what brought us here and it’s what we’ll carry with us when we leave, humming our favorite parts for days afterward. 


That’s how I feel about real estate.  Whether it’s your first home or your fifth, or even the latest addition to a growing real estate portfolio, the experience of buying and selling homes is exhilarating, but there’s a rhythm to it that can seem disorienting if you aren’t familiar with it, like a new band with an eclectic sound.  In my role as your personal guide, I promise that you’ll have the VIP experience of a lifetime, build lasting memories, and achieve your custom “Big Why” for yourself, and those you care about.
