Client Appreciation Party 2023


 Santa and Mrs. Claus joined Guests, Sponsor and Agents at the KWNC Client Appreciation Party in the Training Room at our office in Celina on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, 21 Nov. 2023. The event features photos with Sant by a professional photographer, kids crafts, food and prize drawings throughout the event.

I also gift a pie at the event to any current client, any client who has closed within the last 12 months and anyone at all who has referred a real estate client to me. There’s no limit. I’m happy to present a truckload of pies for a truckload of transactions! If you want to join us next year, introduce me to a friend or family member who needs my help.

With Gratitude

Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday in the USA. President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed the national holiday in 1863. In 1941, Congress officially established it to be celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November. It is a time of harvest and gratitude. Let’s explore the benefits and sources of gratitude during this harvest season.

With Gratitude

Gratitude invites you to recognize and appreciate the positive aspects of your life, acknowledge the kindness and support of others, and cultivate a sense of thankfulness. It focuses on what you have rather than what you lack and finding joy in the present moment. Gratitude can bring a sense of fulfillment and contentment while fostering a positive outlook on life. Please take a moment to appreciate something in your life.

Benefits of Gratitude
Gratitude can have positive effects on your well-being. Gratitude benefits your mind and body, which can extend to various aspects of your life. Here are a few benefits:

Improved Mental Health: Gratitude is linked to lower levels of stress and depression. It can enhance your overall mood and contribute to a more positive mindset.
Better Physical Health: Grateful individuals often report better physical health and well-being. Emotions associated with gratitude can positively impact your immune system and cardiovascular health.
Enhanced Relationships: Expressing gratitude fosters a sense of connection and strengthens relationships. It can improve communication and create a more positive and supportive social environment.
Increased Resilience: Gratitude can contribute to increased resilience when faced with challenges. It helps individuals find meaning and perspective in difficult situations.
Improved Sleep: Gratitude is associated with better sleep quality and duration. Reflect on positive reasons for gratitude before bedtime to get more peaceful and restful sleep.
Increased Happiness: Habitual gratitude is linked to increased levels of happiness and life satisfaction. It encourages a focus on the positive aspects of life rather than negative experiences.
Elevated Self-Esteem: When you recognize and appreciate the good things in life, you can contribute to a positive self-image and increased self-esteem.

Reasons for Gratitude
People can be grateful for a wide range of things. What one person values can vary widely based on personal values, beliefs, and life circumstances. People often express gratitude for some of these common aspects of life:

Relationships: Meaningful connections with Family, friends, and significant partners are often a top source of gratitude.
Health: Good physical and mental health is a fundamental aspect of well-being. Many people are grateful for good health, especially when they've faced health challenges.
Nature: The beauty of the natural world, including landscapes, wildlife, and the changing seasons, often evokes a sense of gratitude.
Achievements: Personal accomplishments, career successes, or reaching goals can be sources of gratitude.
Experiences: Travel, cultural events, and various life experiences contribute to a sense of gratitude for the richness and diversity of life.
Comforts: Basic necessities like food, shelter, and clothing, as well as the comforts and conveniences of modern life, can be a source of gratitude.
Learning and Growth: Opportunities for education, personal development, and learning from challenges encourage people to feel gratitude.
Acts of Kindness: Gratitude often arises from the kindness and support of others. It can be a small gesture or a significant act of generosity.
Freedom and Opportunities: Freedom to make choices, pursue goals, and access various opportunities are sources of gratitude.
Time: Time spent with loved ones, being present in the moment or pursuing passions makes many people grateful.

Harry Potter Experience 2023

We visited “Harry Potter: A Forbidden Forest Experience” last week in Little Elm. It was about as we expected. The lighting is phenomenal. The statues are designed to withstand any weather. You should go in costume if you’re extremely into Harry Potter. This short video has the highlights. It will continue through January 2024.

Happy Veterans Day 2023

In every branch,
Around the world,
On sea, air, land and space,
Through battles and peace,
You served with honor,
You sacrificed with dignity,

Few know what you suffered,
for our lifestyles and freedoms,

From one veteran to another,

I’ve Got Your Six!

November Local Housing Market Update

Prosper still has the highest price per square foot, and Anna remains the lowest. Year-over-year inventory for Melissa is down 53.1% while Gunter increased by 17%. The entire reported area returned to a Sellers’ Market with less than six months of inventory. Plano and Frisco have the fewest months of inventory homes available.

New Listings are creeping down for a cyclical winter rest. However, home selection is possible while rates continue to climb. Rates will eventually retreat, but pent-up demand will surge and reduce inventory. The surge could also possibly create multiple-offer situations and increased prices.

Buyers should act now while there is inventory and relative price stability. Sellers who are rightsizing to smaller properties are at a distinct advantage by leveraging their home equity to purchase as all-cash buyers in this market.

Denton County has slightly lower median prices per square foot. Dallas County has slightly more months of inventory and the highest number of homes available, but houses are selling faster than Denton and Collin counties. Denton County has a slight Seller’s advantage with a lower supply for demand. Collin County still demands the highest prices per square foot.
