Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to Nate’s Monday Morning Message…what a great weekend! I want to thank all our clients, family and friends who helped us celebrate thirty years in real estate over the last two days. If someone had asked me thirty years ago, what my life might look like, I would not have imagined it quite like this. I am truly blessed and honored to have been surrounded by so many amazing people, and to have earned the trust and confidence of close to 6,000 families who have bought or sold a home with my team.  

As we prepare for the Thanksgiving holiday, I have much to be thankful for. It is a surreal feeling to look around a room and see the impact that my life has had on so many others. I made a commitment to make a different life for my children, but little did I know how far that commitment would extend – and how privileged I am to have witnessed it over the weekend.

Thank you to our many clients who came to Blackstone Country Club on Saturday night. It was great to connect with you, and some of you we have not seen in years. And to my team – thank you for our family reunion. Some of the best people on the planet somehow came together and worked on my team. I am truly blessed to have been able to be a part of your lives; I am better man because of each of you! A special thanks to Larry Gosnell and Tina Powers who flew in to Phoenix just to help us celebrate.

In closing, I want to wish each of you a very happy Thanksgiving. If this weekend has taught me anything, is that we matter…our actions, our decisions, our commitments…they leave a mark on the world. Make it count. Happy Thanksgiving!


We are hosting a food drive to benefit St. Mary’s. Our goal is to help those who are less fortunate have a meal on Thanksgiving Day. Every dollar that is donated provides seven meals. If you would like to join our cause, you can drop by any one of our six office locations with a donation, or you can donate online at: Let’s make a difference this week!
