I’ve recently come to the realization that when it comes to music, I’m like the Beatles: “I get by with a little help from my friends.” Literally, almost every concert I’ve been to has been because someone else initiated it and I tagged along. My very first concert ever was David Bowie’s 1987 Glass Spider Tour, and I only went because someone else got grounded, and my friend called at the last minute looking for someone to use the extra ticket. Boy am I glad I did! Shortly thereafter I saw the Bangles (Walk Like an Egyptian) because my best friend was going to TOTALLY DIE if she didn’t see them, and she needed someone to go with her. Fast forward to this past weekend: Taylor had tickets to see a show with our son, Phoenix, but he was so exhausted after the first week of school, he just couldn’t make it, so… I went instead and saw the Black Pumas at the Mohawk. This Austin-based band put on an amazing show before heading out for their first international tour!
I’m not one to keep up with music, I don’t know the names of bands, or who’s playing where, I just know that when I hear what I like it makes me happy. Fortunately, I’ve had people throughout my life that DO geek-out over music and they’ve helped me get out and enjoy some really great live music over the years.
I geek-out when it comes to real estate, and that’s where I get to give a little help to my friends (you). I love to think about market forces, housing trends, wealth-building strategies, home renovation and planning, even repairs! I am always honored to be on the homeownership journey with my clients, and love it when I can help them think strategically and introduce them to new ideas. Whether it’s your first home or your fifth, 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.
This month I’d like to pay it forward and help someone else get out and see some amazing music that they might not have otherwise.

I’m particularly excited about this month’s Item of Value: the opportunity to thank a teacher. Every year, especially as we head back to school, teachers dig into their own pockets to prepare themselves, their classrooms, and their students for learning. What better way to show our appreciation than with some extra help?
