Home can mean different things to different people….
When I was a young girl, my mother and I moved a lot. My mother was always searching for a place to call “home”. In fact, we always seemed to move at Christmas time, packing up the tree and ornaments and heading on out to a different area of town.
We moved every couple of years until I asked my mother, could we please stay in one place until I graduated from high school. She agreed and we stayed in the same apartment until I graduated high school and joined the Army. As soon as I did that, oddly enough, she moved!
As you see from the above statement, I joined the Army at 18 and stayed until 21 years later. For those of us who are or were in the military, the common saying is “home is where you hang your, hat, cover, beret, (fit whatever head gear you would like in the saying) . As you may imagine, I spent a lot of those 21 years in different places, calling them home.
I did indeed spend a year in Iraq calling that hot desert home and in various other states and other overseas areas. Sometimes home wasn’t so pleasant and sometimes it was great and very hard to leave. However, being in the military as some would know, you really don’t get to stay in any one place too long. After 21 years, I retired from FT Sam Houston, TX as an Army Medic and decided to call this place my home.
Home can be a place of safety and comfort. It can be a place of quiet and peace or loudness and joy, (interchange all of those and it can still be home). But most of all, it’s a place you want to come to and it’s yours. It is a place that will always receive you when the outside world doesn’t. Home is where you can be you and trust me; Home is a wonderful place to come to when you have been away from it for a long time. Home is….well, put your own meaning in there, because it is what home is to you.
So…finding home has always resonated deep within me and when I decided to retire from the Army, I felt my calling, (for lack of a better term), would be to help others find home. It is what gives me my deepest joy when I help a first time, or millionth time buyer find that perfect place for them. It gives me some of the greatest satisfaction to help sellers sell their initial homes or their second or third homes so that they can continue their journey to find their ultimate home whether they are downsizing or up-sizing.
I have been in Real Estate now for just about 7 years, and I plan to keep on going.
So…that’s a little bit of my story. I hope it made sense to you and if you need help Finding Home, whether that be here in the Greater San Antonio, TX area or elsewhere in other pastures, please feel free to call or e-mail me. I promise that I will give it my all to Help You Find Home!
