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.

I always ask for a preapproval up front and some people are so SCARED
"The service I received from Zack was exceptional! I could not have asked for a better Realtor to guide me through the process of moving to a city I didn't know. Zack's experience and patience served me well. His local market knowledge is invaluable and his relationships in the community allowed me to identify my new home before it was on the market. Zack is a true professional and in a class by himself.
Also, I wanted to thank Zack for his assistance with the remodel of the house. His wealth of contacts made for a quick and rather painless renovation.
