First of all, whether you are a mom, hope to be a mom, are eternally grateful for your right to not be forced to be a mom, or are just celebrating your own amazing mom, happy Mothers Day. For all, you solo moms, single moms, powerhouse moms, happy Mothers day, and to the dads who are also moms, Happy Mother's Day.
When I was a kid I wanted to be one thing above all else, a mom. I started to try for a baby when I was 28 and didn't get one until I was almost 31, and I would like to apologize who anyone who knew me during those years, I was crazy, neurotic and obsessed with having a baby. Then I had one, and it was the best thing ever. We lived in New York City, I changed careers from Corporate Historian/Archivist to Real Estate Agent, and everything felt amazing. I lost my own mom shortly after I became a mom. I wish she could see what a strong & resilient adult that child became. My adult (still teenage) daughter saved her own money from working at a restaurant for year so that she could pursue her dream to move to New York City and be officially on her own. She packed up and left the Bay a few weeks ago. She got a job, a place to stay, she is enrolling at CUNY, and I could not be more proud of her.
I flew out to see her on Monday, and we had a most epic adventure, a quick road trip to Pittsburgh to manage some property-related issues, a visit with a friend in central PA, and I chauffeured her around to job interviews, while keeping up with my own job (helping you build wealth through real estate) in-between. We laughed, we cried, we kissed no fewer than $75 on tolls goodbye. It was amazing, and I was over-the-moon thrilled to get to be there when she got a solid offer on a part-time job that will carry her through college.
Today I will be brunching with my younger kids, have an open house in Crocker Highlands (with to-go MIMOSA BAGS, so stop by and say HELLO!) followed by a listing presentation this evening. I will be in the office and/or on duty all week, so if you have real estate questions, please reach out. I will be out of town the following week in Cambridge attending the Harvard Program on Negotiation.

OMG YOU GUYS. A NEW FLOATING HOME IS ON MARKET.
Do not call this a houseboat, it upsets both the floating home people and the houseboat people. It is a whole lifestyle situation you couldn't possibly understand until you own one, so please buy this thing & explain it to the rest of us. I know the day-go blue paint is a bit much, but I *swear* I will help you re-paint it if you buy it. This little lady has it all, from the ship's wheel, the nautical knotted rope and ocean-themed stained glass. We should go check it out.
I love residential income. I own residential income, I manage residential income. My favorite two parts of residential income are:
1. You can reside there
2. It has income.
What more could a person possibly want? Check out this Richmond property! Priced right, sitting on market for 23 days, and ready for your offer. Let me know if you'd like to check it out.
