A Salute to Dads!

In honor of Father’s Day, we want to give a shout-out to all of the dads, stepdads, foster dads and granddads out there who’ve done their best to inspire, raise and love the kids in their lives.

Father’s Day reminds me of a Mark Twain quote that I love: “When I was 14, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years.” It makes us laugh, but it also makes us think about all of the moments growing up when we may not have realized the influence our dads had in our lives, our futures and the way we would eventually build our relationships into adulthood. There are many lessons learned at their hands and from their hearts. If you’re fortunate enough to still have your dad in your life – celebrate him all week long. He will surely appreciate it!

I also found this fun, poignant article in Real Simple magazine: “Ten Things My Father Was Right About.” It’s worth the read and would be great to share with the dads in your life. I hope you enjoy it!

Have an amazing week!

DIY Tip for the Week
Bathroom updates are always a smart move. Even if you can’t afford a full remodel, small changes such as replacing dated wallpaper with a faux or textured finish and replacing old lighting will update the space without denting your wallet.

Real Estate Tip of the Week
We’ve got LOTS of buyers are ready to close deals this summer and not a lot of inventory. So if you’re thinking of selling, now is the time to take advantage of the increased buyer activity and get a great price for your home.
