Give Thanks

by Nate Martinez

Give Thanks

“Give thanks for each new morning, with its light. For rest and shelter of the night.  For health and food, for love and friends. For everything, they goodness sends” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Today, as I reflect on 2014 I have so much to be grateful for – my family, my team, and my clients who continue to instill their trust in me as their real estate consultant. Every day I am given opportunities to meet new people and help them with their real estate needs.

Every family we help buy or sell a home is truly a blessing to celebrate, today and every day. To each of you and those who have referred my team, we extend our deepest gratitude to you on this day. May your holiday be filled with love, laughter and memories that will last a life time. Wishing you and your loved ones a very happy and healthy Thanksgiving Holiday - Nate

RE/MAX National Housing Report November 2014

by Nate Martinez

RE/MAX National Housing Report November 2014 

According to the November 2014, National Housing Report from RE/MAX, October marks the second consecutive month in 2014 with home sales higher than one year ago. Following the normal fall seasonal trend, October home sales were 0.8% lower than sales in September, but 2.6 percent higher than the level of sales in October 2013.

“Home sales in 2014 started the year slowly and then rose to equal the strong sales in 2013. They’ve now surpassed last year’s levels for two months in a row. Following usual seasonal trends and with prices rising at a reasonable rate, the market appears to be settling into a more sustainable growth pattern.” Margaret Kelly, RE/MAX, LLC CEO

The Median Sales Price of all homes sold in the 53 metropolitan areas surveyed in October was $193,000, which was 7.4 percent higher than the median price last October. Home prices in October followed the 2014 pattern of steady growth, but at a slower rate than the double-digit increases seen in 2013.

Nate's Monday Morning Message

Welcome to this edition of Nate’s Monday Morning Message. I hope all of you had a fabulous weekend filled with fun and relaxation. 

This week many of us will be looking forward to the Thanksgiving Holiday. It is a time for all of us to take a step back and be truly thankful for all the great blessings we have been given. Times may still be tough for us, but we are all in a position to still be thankful for all the great people we know, the wonderful life we have been given so far, and all the great opportunities that lie ahead. 

I hope that this will carry forward into each and every day you will have in the future. Let all the people you are thankful for know. Take the time to reach everyone. Let them know what they mean to you and that you appreciate them in your life. Please enjoy this time that you have. Use it wisely as once it’s gone it’s gone forever. Be thankful and enjoy!

Life is a duty, complete it. 
Life is a game, play it. 
Life is a promise, fulfill it. 
Life is sorrow, overcome it. 
Life is a song, sing it. 
Life is a struggle, accept it. 
Life is a tragedy, confront it. 
Life is an adventure, dare it. 
Life is luck, make it. 
Life is too precious, do not destroy it. 
Life is life, fight for it.

“The thankful receiver bears a plentiful harvest." William Blake

"Things turn out best for people who make the best of the way things turn out.” - John Wooden

Nate's Monday Morning Message

by Nate Martinez

Nate's Monday Morning Message

Welcome to this edition of Nate's Monday Morning Message. I hope each and every one of you had a fantastic weekend filled with lots of fun and relaxation. 

All of us have issues in our personal and business lives that we must continue to work on. There always have been, and always will be, things that can be improved upon. The challenge for all of us is in what we focus on daily. Yes, there are things we must get done each day. Yes, there are places we must go each day. But, the great thing is that we all have control over what we think about each and every moment. We have that choice. 

You have the ability, through your thoughts and your efforts, to create something that has never existed before. And you have the power to choose what that will be. Think about solutions not problems. Think about how to make things better instead of how things might be now. Think about what really matters to you. 

What you think about, is what you will do. And what you think about is up to you. 

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER...

Today is My Day

Today my thoughts are centered on expecting only the best and giving only the best. Today my mind and heart are open to new opportunities and I make the most out of every situation.

Today I will smile and act enthusiastically in everything I do. I will make every person I meet feel very important and I will show them that I care. Today my confidence is high and I am willing to step out and take a chance. I speak freely to all those I meet. I know I have something valuable to contribute. I expect results today and my time is well invested.

Today I am one step closer to achieving my goals and dreams. I always keep my eyes focused on success and prosperity. Today I will sow good seed so that I will reap my harvest of reward. 

Today is my day!

Nate's Monday Morning Message

by Nate Martinez

Nate's Monday Morning Message

Welcome to this edition of Nate's Monday Morning Message. I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend filled with fun and relaxation. This week as we continue to work on, and improve, our personal and professional lives let us remember that we must not get complacent or short sighted. Are there things in this world you would like to accomplish, but they seem a little too far away? If we constantly look at the end, or how long the journey will take, we will never start walking. 

We must start walking and keep focused on what we can see in front of us. The amazing thing is that each step we take brings us a little closer to where we want to be. One step forward is one step closer. Let us think about some of the things we have brushed off for too long and let us start walking. 

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER...

Parable of the Pencil 

The Pencil Maker took the pencil aside, just before putting him into the box. "There are 5 things you need to know," he told the pencil, "before I send you out into the world. Always remember them and never forget, and you will become the best pencil you can be." "One: You will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in someone’s hand." "Two: You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, but you'll need it to become a better pencil." "Three: You will be able to correct any mistakes you might make." "Four: The most important part of you will always be what's inside." "And, Five: On every surface you are used on, you must leave your mark. No matter what the condition, you must continue to write." The pencil understood and promised to remember, and went into the box with purpose in its heart.

Now replace the place of the pencil with yourself. Always remember them and never forget, and you will become the best person you can be. One: You will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in special hands, and allow other human beings to access you for the many gifts you possess. Two: You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, by going through various problems in life, but you'll need it to become a stronger person. Three: You will be able to correct any mistakes you might make.  Four: The most important part of you will always be what's on the inside. And, Five: On every surface you walk through, you must leave your mark. No matter what the situation, you must continue to do your duties. Allow this parable on the pencil to encourage you to know that you are a special person and that only you can fulfill the purpose to which you were born to accomplish. Never allow yourself to get discouraged and think that your life is insignificant and cannot make a change.

WORDS TO LIVE BY...
