Thank You, Jennifer…For The Nudge

100’s of CB Realtors, Standing Ovation…Fun Scene
What a Wednesday. This morning Amanda, Amy, and I rode together to Coldwell Banker’s 2011 Awards and Recognition banquet. As you can see from the pic above, we took home the top brass for the company. I can’t possibly convey through this keyboard how humbling this is.

Around six’ish years ago I remember my then-girlfriend, Jennifer Sparks, advising me that I should enter the real estate brokerage profession. We were sitting in her car in my driveway on Atascadero Dr. It was kinda late. As cool as my “mailbox flag” project was (some readers will remember this), Jennifer knew I was wandering for a professional identity, and searching for a career path that would enable me to stay in Columbia. Combining Jennifer’s skill set hunch with a speechless level of loyalty, and an endlessly thankful referral rate from my friends, it brings us to today’s accolade.

Last year I wrote this diddy, and obviously feel the same admiration for my office-mates. Even though I’ve been at CB-Midtown for about six years, I still move aside when the likes of Susie, Whit, Earl, George, Bill, or Michel need to fax or scan something. While this probably isn’t necessary (they don’t even know I’m doing it), I feel compelled to yield to their years (decades) of hard work in this tireless industry. Compared to them I’m still a newbie at our office, which is the finest/best/top producing real estate office in the Midlands.

After the breakfast banquet, we immediately returned to the job and fetched a good new listing, just off 378 in West Columbia. Of course, this is what it’s all about! It’s to be noted that this listing business was from a referral, which is the ultimate compliment.

Getting back to Jennifer, tomorrow I need to make a point to thank her for being brutally honest that night in my driveway, and for being an incredibly supportive wife to a guy whose job demands late nights and full weekends.

Further, as typed above, I can’t express my thanks through this keyboard how much I appreciate the leads, referrals, and support from my friends. Amanda, Amy, and I truly have the best real estate network in South Carolina. We’re well aware of this, and will never take it for granted. Our best “Thank you” can only come from the high performance that you expect, and we fully recognize this.

As you might guess, I wouldn’t be a good Realtor if I didn’t ask for business! If you or anyone you know is interested in buying or selling a home, or any property type for that matter, please call or email or We’d love a chance to make you proud.


  1. Hooray! That's awesome. Very proud of you! Now get that house that someone referred to you sold buddy!
