Another Chapter Closes

On June 15 the Real Estate Brokerage franchise that I had been happily working for as Associate Broker and Office Manager came to an end. My Broker had owned a Coldwell Banker Franchise since 2005 that was up for renewal. After owning and managing a business, staff and associates, she decided that renewing her franchise (which she was very successful in) wasn't a business decision to lock into for another decade. After careful consideration she decided it was time to close her franchise and revert back to being a salesperson for another brokerage.  So that meant all associates and staff needed to find their own new adventures. 

You know, I've been in Real Estate since 1994 and have only moved my license twice, I started with DeWolfe New England (who was bought up by Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage) and after 12 years I left and went over to Points Nor' East (who then became a Weichert franchise).  I enjoyed my 11 years with another fine group of people, but in 2017 Kathy Walsh made me an offer I couldn't refuse, so I left Portsmouth and hung my hat in Stratham, NH until two days ago.  


Now I have new adventures in store.  I've converted my Broker license in Maine to Designated Broker and will be working independently in Maine (Debbie Mae Kershaw Real Estate).   In New Hampshire I have placed my license with my previous Broker (Points East Properties) until I pass my Broker exam in New Hampshire.  And, starting Monday (after a big 2 day vacation), I will begin a collaboration with a friend of mind who I've worked with since the 90's.  We have worked well together over the years and her business is growing and she's always been after me to work together.  So, I said yes.... Stay Tuned!

I'm excited about my new adventures and am sad to say good bye to my colleagues at CBWRE, but it's not like we won't see each other. We're in Real Estate - who knows, we'll see each other in a couple weeks at an Open House, Broker Preview or a Continuing Ed class and possibly at the closing table!

It's a small world, but Living, Working and Playing on the Seacoast of New England (and more geographically correct Maine and New Hampshire) is the BEST!

Happy Thanksgiving

We are grateful for your business!  

All of us at Coldwell Banker Walsh Real Estate want to take a moment to wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving.

I recently read a piece about how to be purposefully grateful every day:  I want to share it with you.

1. Appreciate the little things. Some days it's easier to find things to be thankful for than others. Regardless of how your day is unfolding, take time to appreciate the little things and you may find your day turns out better than you expected.

2. Look on the bright side. Look for ways to be grateful when faced with challenges. Gratitude changes your mindset and helps you become more optimistic. Optimists see challenges as opportunities for growth and improvement.

3. Count your blessings. It takes up to eight weeks of practicing gratitude for the brain to start showing changes reflecting greater happiness. * Write down three to five things you're grateful for daily. If you're not sure what to write, answer these questions:

  • What are you grateful for right now?
  • Who are three people you're grateful to have in your life?
  • What is something you tend to take for granted that you're grateful for?
4. Volunteer. When you help others, it tends to create feelings of well-being and happiness. Volunteer in your local community or help others you know who may be facing difficult times. Look for opportunities to give.

5. Show appreciation. In addition to saying "thank you" and letting people know how much you appreciate them, write a note to someone who has had an impact on your life and let them know how much they mean to you.

Simple little things that mean so much!

On behalf of Kathy Walsh and our great team of experienced, professional and awesome associates in our office.  Happy Thanksgiving!
