I wanted to share with you a lesson I learned in hopes of improving the odds of it never happening again. Recently, a current connection of mine purchased their first home and just finished moving in. I was happy to hear this, because there is nothing like the thrill of searching for your first home and the excitement when you finally receive the keys.
Here’s where the lesson begins. I’m a Realtor®, but I wasn’t the Realtor® who helped this connection buy their first home. The reason is simple; I wasn’t even an option.
I just assumed this connection and all my connections (like you) know I am a Realtor®. Well, I was wrong and surprisingly many of my connections have no idea that I have been a Realtor® for over two years now.
This falls on to my shoulders for not doing a better job of staying top of mind to the people connected to me. Lesson learned!
Moving forward, I want to ensure you at least know I have the tools, training and skill set to help you with your real estate goals. Or, perhaps you know someone who needs a great Realtor®. Please keep me top of mind, as I am always looking to help people accomplish their real estate, wants, needs and goals.
I work out of the Royal LePage Benchmark brokerage located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and in addition to Calgary, I also service Airdrie, Cochrane, Okotoks, Chestermere and Bragg Creek. My focus is Residential and Rural real estate.
I hope you are able to learn something from my lesson and apply it to your own situation. Hopefully your connections know what you do, so in the event they need your services you are top of mind.
UV Rays and Sunscreens:
SPF (Sun Protection Factor), is a measure of how much protection a sunscreen provides the skin from UVB rays. UVB rays are known to cause sunburn, damage skin, and are known to contribute to skin cancer.
The way a sunscreen works is if your skin would normally burn after 10 minutes of sun exposure, applying a sunscreen with a SPF of 15 would allow you to stay in the sun and prolong the time it takes to get a sunburn for approximately 150 minutes (a factor of 15 times longer). —
Make sure your sunscreen has a SPF of 30 or higher and is a broad spectrum SPF. Make sure you reapply sunscreen after you swim or every 2 hours to make sure your skin is protected from the sun at all times.
This is Purple Orach. It's pretty nifty. It tastes just like spinach, but it's really purple. The undersides of the leaves are silvery and sparkley purple. It's leaves repel water extremely well, causing this really beautiful beading on the leaves after a rain. It's heat resistant, and grows a pretty solid stem and root system, making it less susceptible to wind, and drought. Very beautiful plant.
