Who Cares if the Ground Hog got it right, Spring is STILL Coming! I promise. 

Spring is Springing!  Yay!  I just came inside from shooting a video outside and WOW!  It’s nice out!  Yes, I realize that when you get this and read it that it could be cold and rainy, but those cold days are just about over.  Everyone loves Spring, primarily because it means… summer is near!  

For many across this great country though, it’s still COLD, grey, and snowy! One thing is for sure, this winter season is coming to an end.  It does every year without fail. 

Just like the weather, seasons come and go, so do the seasons of life.  I just turned 52, I have two daughters in college.  Are you with me when I say that these seasons seem to come and go faster and faster as well as the time?  My wife and I just the other night reminisced about how fast they went from babies to young ladies.

Some of life’s seasons will be HOT and others will be COLD, some high and some low.  The lows we want to move by quickly, the highs we want to stay in forever.  But it’s the low points, those tough times, that I have learned the most from.  All of the experiences through these seasons make me who I am.  

So, what does this have to do with you and real estate?  

Spring is a time of action, a heating up of the desire for a new place to call home for many.  Maybe you or someone you know is right now looking or considering it.  That’s great!  We are here to help with that.  Whether it be a list of the 10 best buys matching your home buying criteria or delivering top dollar on a home sale along with our written guarantee, our award-winning SYSTEM and TEAM are eager to help.  

Unfortunately, there are some that will have a Springtime they would much rather forget. 

With all the beauty this Springtime brings, there is also the ugly for some.  Just down the street from where I’m typing this, Children’s Health Care of Atlanta has a full house of kids with many fighting for their lives.  For them and their families, Springtime is the furthest thing from their mind. Don’t get me wrong, these families long to see their kids out in the yard playing or riding their bikes – but for now, they are praying this will be a season of healing.  

Everyone on our team wants to do even more to support these families and we know that we can with your help.  After all, it is our incredible clients referring their relatives, friends and co-workers that makes it all possible.  Thank you!

We are on a mission to raise $10,000 for Children’s Health Care of Atlanta. We do this by donating to them a portion of our income from homes we sell.  As you know Children’s Health Care of Atlanta does awesome work in helping kids fight through and survive nasty life-threatening diseases like cancer, Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, leukemia and others.  They also lead the way in early diagnosis of Autism and rapid recovery from spinal cord injuries. 

Most don’t know though that Children’s is a non-profit, so they depend on sponsorships and donations to provide their world class care and keep costs for families of these beautiful kids to a minimum.  So, when you or anyone you know does business with us, not only do we deliver on our award-winning service, but you can also rest assured a very worthy cause benefits as well.   

If you or anyone you know is considering selling, give me a call or pass on my number.  Thank you in advance for your referrals! My number is 770-898-1088.

Over the decades of helping hundreds and hundreds of families sell or buy the place they call home, we have met so many wonderful, loving, caring people. We are so grateful. Thank you for reading over this month’s Homeward Bound and thank you for referring anyone you know considering buying or selling to my team. They will be in good hands and a very worthy cause will benefit as well.

Go Serve Big!!!

P.S. Please read over the great story attached below.  It will help tell the story of the great work CHOA is doing better than I can.

 

Ella Griggs (Age 13), Stroke

Just before Ella Griggs’ 13th birthday, she was rushed by ambulance from lacrosse practice to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. “I got a phone call that no parent ever wants to receive,” Ella’s mother Leslie Griggs says. “Ella was speaking incoherently, there was right side weakness and she collapsed.” 

Ella was diagnosed with a massive brain bleed. She spent two weeks in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) in a medically induced coma and a drain was placed to remove excess fluid. “It quickly escalated to a scenario where we were being told that it wasn’t ‘when’ our child will recover but ‘if’ our child is going to recover,” says Leslie. Ella’s stroke left her with complete right-side weakness and aphasia, which is the loss of the ability to effectively express speech. These two factors left Ella trapped in her own body. However, she astounded her care team, family and friends with her perseverance in therapy. 

Shortly after starting the Children’s Inpatient Rehabilitation Program, Ella was walking again. The Children’s robotics therapists continue to work with Ella, and now she is able to run. “To see her reclaim a piece of herself from pre-event is really cool,” says Leslie. When asked how therapy has been, Ella says she loves her therapists. “I feel good … work hard, play hard.”
