Better Together

As a kid, leftovers were handled in one of two ways.  One was a classic “Mama O’Neillioni’s Special” –Mom’s creative way of combining leftovers into a casserole – with a dash of this and a pinch of that, until voilá, you have a whole new supper for our family of six.  The other solution, my favorite, was Smörgåsbord Night.  Smörgåsbord Night was the leftover equivalent of tapas or a mini-buffet, where the leftovers were pulled out of the fridge, arrayed on the table, and everyone could choose the items they wanted. No one item was enough to feed the whole family, but a few bites each of a couple of dishes always seemed like such a treat… plus Smörgåsbord just sounded so exotic.   


So, what does this have to do with real estate?  Well, whether they were combined to form a completely new “Special”, or they kept their individual identity, leftovers shared with love nourished our family and proved the old adage that “the total is more than the sum of its parts”.  In a similar way, families, teams, companies, even nations – we are always better together. Each individual’s unique talents are valuable, but when combined with the skills and contributions of others, we can create something magical, epic and enduring.   


As the Godparent of your house, that’s what I want for you, and it takes all of us to create it.  Each one of us have specific expectations for how we want to be taken care of. My commitment is to amplify my market knowledge with a strong network of professionals – lenders, inspectors, Title escrow officers, a vast and dedicated group of vendors in every field, and the best support team in the industry – to create a custom experience for your family to achieve your unique dreams and live a life you love.

It’s a good life!
