Nate's Monday Morning Message - Happy Memorial Day

by Nate Martinez

Nate's Monday Morning Message - Happy Memorial Day 

Welcome to this edition of Nate's Morning Message...I hope you all are enjoying your weekend and looking forward to this Memorial Day. The real estate market is picking up and we are getting lots of good signs of things to come; days on market are and inventory have been stable, properties under agreement are up, prices are still up, interest rates are still low, and agents are working harder and smarter. 

Today, in honor of Memorial Day and remembrance of what should be important to us, please take a few minutes to think about the country we all love and care about. Think about how we have gotten to this point as a nation. Think about all the struggle and sacrifice that has come before us. Think about all the brave and selfless men and women that have given their lives for us to have the freedoms we enjoy today. Think about the families that have struggled while their sons and daughters are away from home. Think about what it means to you to have the limitless possibilities for yourself and your families because we live in this great country. Think about the responsibilities you have to maintain this greatness and the character of this country we all love. We can all do something - what will you do?

I love my country - THANK YOU to all the men and women who have and do serve to protect and defend the liberties, the freedom, the opportunities, and the future of this wonderful land.


Freedom Is Not Free
By LCDR Kelly Strong, USCG - Copyright 1981

I watched the flag pass by one day,
It fluttered in the breeze.
A young Service man saluted it,
And then he stood at ease.

I looked at him in uniform
So young, so tall, so proud,
With hair cut square and eyes alert
He'd stand out in any crowd.

I thought how many men like him
Had fallen through the years.
How many died on foreign soil
How many mothers' tears?

How many pilots' planes shot down?
How many died at sea
How many foxholes were soldiers' graves?
No, freedom isn't free.

 I heard the sound of Taps one night,
When everything was still,
I listened to the bugler play
And felt a sudden chill.

I wondered just how many times
That Taps had meant "Amen,"
When a flag had draped a coffin.
Of a brother or a friend.

I thought of all the children,
Of the mothers and the wives,
Of fathers, sons and husbands
With interrupted lives.

I thought about a graveyard
At the bottom of the sea
Of unmarked graves in Arlington.
No, freedom isn't free.

“This country will not be a good place for any of us to live in unless we make it a good place for all of us to live in.” - Theodore Roosevelt

“And I'm proud to be an American,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.”

Have some fun this and every week! Happy Memorial Day. Nate

Home Sales Rise, Market Finds Stability - RE/MAX Housing Report

For the second month in a row, April home sales rose higher than sales in March. Only two of the fifty-two metro areas studied in the RE/MAX National Housing Report were found to have experienced lower sales than the previous month.

“After the disruptions to the market at the beginning of the year, it’s a good sign that sales have picked up and have now increased for two months in a row. While sales and prices aren’t growing at the rate they did last year, we still remain in a recovery with the market settling into a more sustainable growth pattern.” Margaret Kelly, RE/MAX CEO.

Nate's Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to this edition of the Nate’s Monday Morning Message. I hope you all had a fabulous weekend and enjoyed some down time. Remember the reasons why you work so hard: accomplishment, satisfaction, provide for your family, build wealth, charter new waters, fine tune your skills, competition, etc.  

Please take 5 minutes this Monday morning to remember and really think about why you do what you do. The purpose behind your actions is what will get you through difficult times. The goals that you set are the markers of success and achievement. They will guide you on the journey. The actions you take daily are what move you forward little by little to achieve all that you desire. Keep your purpose in sight and work hard on the actions that will lead to your success.  Never - Never - Never - Quit!


Climb 'Til Your Dream Comes True by: Helen Steiner Rice

Often your tasks will be many, 
And more than you think you can do. 

Often the road will be rugged
And the hills insurmountable, too.

But always remember, the hills ahead
Are never as steep as they seem, 

And with Faith in your heart start upward
And climb 'til you reach your dream. 

For nothing in life that is worthy
Is ever too hard to achieve

If you have the courage to try it, 
And you have the faith to believe.  

For faith is a force that is greater
Than knowledge or power or skill, 

And many defeats turn to triumph
If you trust in God's wisdom and will.  

For faith is a mover of mountains, 
There's nothing that God cannot do, 

So, start out today with faith in your heart, 
And climb 'til your dream comes true!

Nate’s Monday Morning Message

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to this editionof the Nate's Monday Morning Message. I hope everyone enjoyed Mother's Day Weekend! Let's start out this week taking a few minutes to examine where we are in both our personal and business lives. 

Do we have a stated purpose for both? Do we have a plan to achieve the end result desired? Are we working each and every day on the actions that our plan calls for? Are we happy? Do we need to make some changes or work a little harder or smarter to achieve our goals? Do we believe that we control where we end up? Are we allowing negative people or thoughts to influence us?

Let us always remember that we have total control over one thing - ourselves! We decide what we will or will not do. We have control over what thoughts will or will not influence us. We choose to act the way we do every minute of every day. If we choose to, we have the power to change anything in our lives for the better. Make this the best week you have ever had!


“Storms Bring Out the Eagles, But the Little Birds Take Cover.” - Helen Steiner Rice

When the "storms of life"

Gather darkly ahead,

I think of these wonderful words 

I once read.

And I say to myself 

As "threatening clouds" hover,

Don't "fold up your wings"

And "run for cover."

But like the eagle,

"Spread wide your wings"

And "soar far above"

The troubles life brings.

For the eagle knows

That the higher he flies,

The more tranquil and brighter 

Become the skies. 

And there is nothing in life

God ever asks us to bear 

That we can't soar above 

"On the wings of prayer."

And in looking back over

The "storm you passed through,"

You'll find you gained strength 

And new courage, too.

For in facing "life's storms"

With an eagle's wings,

You can fly far above 

Earth's small, petty things.

Nate's Monday Message

Nate’s Monday Message 

Welcome to this edition of Nate’s Monday Message. What is it that we are going to accomplish this week? Have a plan. Be Prepared. Execute. Be Determined. Have a great attitude. Be Happy. You can accomplish whatever it is that you choose to accomplish. Make this the week you do something big. You can and you should. Let's make this the best week of the year!


Rocks and Sand

A philosophy professor stood before his class and had some items in front of him. When class began, wordlessly he picked up a large empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with rocks, rocks about 2" in diameter.

He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was. So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles, of course, rolled into the open areas between the rocks.

He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was. The students laughed. The professor picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. "Now," said the professor, "I want you to recognize that this is your life. The rocks are the important things - your family, your partner, your health, your children - anything that is so important to you that if it were lost, you would be nearly destroyed. The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house, your car.”

“The sand is everything else. The small stuff. If you put the sand into the jar first, there is no room for the pebbles or the rocks. The same goes for your life. If you spend all your energy and time on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you. Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your partner out dancing. There will always be time to go to work, clean the house, give a dinner party and fix the disposal.”

“Take care of the rocks first - the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand."


“In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.” - Albert Einstein

“Men take only their needs into consideration, never their abilities.” - Napoleon Bonaparte

“If I had to live my life again, I'd make the same mistakes, only sooner.” - Tallulah Bankhead

“Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.” - Harriet Beecher Stowe

 “Character may be manifested in the great moments, but it is made in the small ones.” - Phillips Brooks

“Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.” - Will Rogers

“Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice.” - Dr. Wayne Dyer

 “It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed. “ - Theodore Roosevelt

Make it the best week of the year and HAPPY CINCO DE MAYO! Nate
