This is a tough blog for me but one that I have been thinking about all weekend. I just think it needs to be said. One of my neighbor's came to me and asked if I would put a couple of green ribbons around the trees in front of my house. She said they stand for organ donation. She went on to say that one of her friends in the neighborhood had her 18 month old child die suddenly. She told me the details but I really don't remember because it didn't matter why. All I could think about was there were two people in my neighborhood that didn't have their baby anymore. I did find out how amazing this couple must be. 3 organs from this child went on to save 3 other lives. If they had not been open to this, those others may not have lived either. As I was putting on the ribbons, an SUV drove up and stopped. The man got out and hugged me. He said he was the father of the baby and thanked me for putting up the ribbons. I hated that I met him under the worst of circumstances. My heart goes out to that family. But mine wasn't the only one. On my usual walk through Stewart Peninsula I saw green ribbons on just about every house I walked by. There are many reasons to chose a neighborhood. Some we may know right off the bat....and other reasons come later.

"Melinda is a very knowledgeable, caring realtor. She listens to what you want and need closely, and does everything pssible to make the home buying experience not only good, but joyful.
Once I narrowed my focus on the area I wanted, Melinda did not try to get me to view other areas. She was very helpful in providing tips and ideas on what could be done with the property, even decorating ideas.
As any homebuyer knows, the paperwork can be quite daunting. She was very helpful in helping me to understand each document and was a very calming influence.
She also aided me in getting the utilities set up.
She helped the entire process go very smoothly and I would highly recommend Melinda."
