Is it Really the Most Wonderful Time of the Year?

You know the song, the one that says it’s the most wonderful time of the year. Well, there is something to it. The current year of unexpected events coming to a close, the celebration of faith-driven holidays which mean different things to different people, but most always represent joy, peace, gratitude, and hope.
If you look around, you will notice a giving spirit exists unlike at other times of the year. Why can’t it be that way everyday of every year? I think it can. It just takes effort. Here is what we are doing and how you can help.
Many homeowners wanting to really enjoy this holiday season are less than enthusiastic because they feel trapped. They are desperate to exit their current home and give themselves a big gift - A NEW place to call home
As a result of working with hundreds of families over a 30-year time span and through three documented recessions, we have develop ...

November 2020 Homewardbound Newsletter: Thank You, and...

The month of November brings about an extra opportunity to say Thank You for being a valuable part of our business.  As most begin to prepare for the Holiday season, plan Thanksgiving get-togethers and the like, it’s easy to become wrapped up in all that we have to do to ensure a fun, joyful time for all we are responsible for and overlook all that we have to be thankful for. Gratitude though is an attitude that is contagious! 
Unfortunately, many homeowners are desperate to exit their current home. Actually, loathing this time of year as it adds to the frustration of not being settled for the Holidays. You may know someone or a family that fits this description. 
If you or a friend are thinking about selling, make sure to choose a real estate company you can trust!
A real estate company with experience, proven results, and a give-back philosophy!
Here is where you and I can HELP!
As a result of working with hundreds of families over a 20-year time span, w ...

October 2020 Homewardbound Newsletter: Masks Not Just for Halloween Anymore

If only we would’ve known what the new decade had in store for us wearing masks everywhere, staying 6 feet apart, not shaking hands, planning ahead for routine visits and shopping, online celebrations and school, working from home, Zoom meetings and the list of restrictions goes on…and THEN! Here come the protests. People longing for change and tired of not being heard. But THEN! Protesters and rioters from the most extreme sides of the issue(s), demonstrating, and sometimes ranging, night after night in downtown Portland. OK, now we’ve adjusted to COVID precautions AND to the freedom of speech being expressed every day for countless days on end.
What else could be looming just around the corner this year?? Devastating forest fires!!! The fires ranged out of control and way too close for comfort for most of us. Smoke forced us to take even more precautions to protect ourselves and each other. So at the same time, we’ve all had to navigate these unprecedented ...

September 2020 Homewardbound Newsletter: Happy Labor Day Weekend from Sidney

In case you are not sure of the title… it's Labor Day. The Backwards Holiday. Every year when it rolls around, I wonder why it is named Labor Day. Since it’s a Holiday intended to be just that, a Holiday – I would think a better name may be Relax Day or Lazy Day or Off Day or Sleep-in Day, maybe even Do-Nothing Day, something other than Labor Day.  After all, we know what Labor means.  And many will likely be celebrating Labor Day by Laboring. 
Labor Day came about because workers felt they were spending too many hours and days on the job.
In the 1830s, manufacturing workers were putting in 70-hour weeks on average. Sixty years later, in 1890, hours of work had dropped, although the average manufacturing worker still toiled in a factory 60 hours a week. 
These long working hours caused many union organizers to focus on winning a shorter eight-hour workday. They also focused on getting workers more days off, such as the Labor Day holiday, and re ...
