I posted a picture of First Landing State Park because it’s unseasonably warm, and the beach is gorgeous this time of the year. The air is crisp and the streets are clear. Enjoy the newsletter for this month, and feel free to pass it on.
Wow! This took me by surprise. The Federal Reserve Board raised the short-term interest rate (which indirectly affects consumer interest rates) a few days ago.

The Norfolk office at the Urban League of Hampton Roads will be conducting a pilot program for 1st time home buyers in Norfolk, and I’ve been asked to be the speaker for the part Working with a RealtorÂ®. If you know of anyone who is interested in knowing about the home buying process, this will be a great opportunity to get started. The good thing is that it’s during the evening hours, the 1st Tuesday and Wednesday of January. The class is free, and a certificateÂ is given which can be used towards the VHDA’s down payment program.
By the way, the greatest compliment I can receive is a referral.Â Don’t keep me a secret! If you know of anyone who wants to buy or sell a home in Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake or its surrounding areas, would you introduce me by calling or texting me with their info? Thanks!
It’s been a great year. If you know of someone who is thinking of switching real estate companies, now is the time. I’ll be glad to show them around the office and introduce them. No pressure. Just a friendly chat about their plans.
As we close one year and enter the next, I feel blessed beyond measure because of people like you in my life.
Sometimes what starts out as a business relationship opens a window to people you will know and cherish for the rest of your life. There is anÂ understanding that whatever you need, whenever you need it, there is a friend right there ready to help.
I am blessed to have the opportunity to do what I do. Helping people find their dream home and create a financial foundation is an incredible feeling.Â Thank you for all that you do and all that you are. From my home to yours, I wish you all the best!
Looking forward to great things for us all in 2016!
