It strikes me that so many things we partake in often take advantage of professional critics or reviewers, upon early access. Imagine if new listings came with a critic, if you will…
No question, we’ve all been through a rough go these past few years. Hopefully we are coming out the other side. I hope that the biggest global crisis can be averted, and in that I wish for Ukraine’s life to go back to being peaceful.
Over the years, I think I’ve had two columns here exploring random thoughts, things that just scamper around upstairs in my head, only to wake me up late at night to wonder if other people think these sorts of things as well.
Today’s column is recycled – it first appeared here back in 2008. I figured it might be a good time to dust it off and update it a bit, given that I’m so far behind on my holiday streaming viewing. And my holiday baking consumption.
I need to get creative here in this column space. Why not a list of unique “holiday properties” that need to be sold before the new year?
I recall a fellow agent I used to work with who was around 80-years-old (give or take) and she was as vibrant and engaged as fellow Realtors not even half her age.

More recently I was going through an old folder on my computer (I must have scanned some of those original parchment copies somewhere along the way?) and came across this timely quiz from 2000.
For what feels like eons now, my family members and I have been working to clear out the various belongings my mother had to leave behind when she moved into an assisted living facility.
