Spring is Still Coming, I Promise!

Who cares if the Ground Hog got it right? Spring is still coming, I promise!

Spring is Springing! Yay! I just came inside from shooting a video outside, and WOW! It’s nice out! Yes, I realize that when you get this and read it that it could be cold and rainy, but those cold days are just about over. Everyone loves Spring, primarily because it means... summer is near!

For many across this great country, though, it’s still COLD, grey, and snowy!

One thing is for sure, this winter season is coming to an end. It does every year without fail.

Just like the weather seasons come and go, so do the seasons of life. I just turned 51, my oldest is growing his own Real Estate business, and my youngest is almost out of high school. Are you with me when I say that the seasons seem to come and go faster and faster, as well as time? My wife reminded me last night that we have shared many of my birthdays together.

Some of life’s seasons will be HOT, and others will be COLD, some high and some low. The lows we want to move by quickly, the highs we want to stay in forever. But it’s the low points, those tough times, that I have learned the most from. All of the experiences through these seasons made me who I am.

Unfortunately, there are some that will have a Spring Time they would much rather forget.

With all the beauty this Springtime brings, there is also the ugly for some. Just down the street from where I’m typing this, Children’s Hospital of Orange County has a house full of kids, many of which are fighting for their lives.

For them and their families, Spring time is the furthest thing from their minds. Don’t get me wrong, these families long to see their kids out in the yard playing or riding their bikes, but for now, they are praying this will be a season of healing.

Annually, the check that I get to write for Children’s Hospital of Orange County is one of the most rewarding checks I get to write. This is due to so many of our great clients doing business with us, and referring to those they know wanting to buy or sell.


We are on a mission to double our contributions to Children’s Hospital of Orange County from last year. We do this by donating to them a portion of our income from homes we sell. As you know, Children’s Hospital of Orange County does awesome work helping kids fight through and survive nasty, life-threatening diseases like cancer, Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, leukemia, and others. They also lead the way in early diagnosis of Autism and rapid recovery from spinal cord injuries.

Most don’t know, though, that CHOC is a nonprofit, so they depend on sponsorships and donations to provide their world-class care and keep costs for families of these beautiful kids to a minimum. So, when you or anyone you know does business with us, not only do we deliver on our award-winning service, but you can also rest assured a very worthy cause will benefit too.

If you or anyone you know is considering selling, give me a call or press my number. My number is 714-452-1829. Or you can fill out this referral form.

Thank you in advance for your referrals!

Over the decades of helping thousands and thousands of families sell or buy the place they call home, we have met so many wonderful, loving, caring people. We are so grateful. Thank you for reading this month’s Homeward Bound, and thank you for referring anyone you know considering buying or selling to my team. They will be in good hands, and a very worthy cause will benefit too.
