Happy IN your home

August 20, 2008

I help people buy new homes for their families. I saw a quotation a couple days ago that reminded me of why I do what I do. The quote by G.K. Chesterton was posted on Gretchen Rubin’s blog, The Happiness Project. Here’s the quote. 

“There are no chains of houses; there are no crowds of men. The colossal diagram of streets and houses is an illusion, the opium dream of a speculative builder. Each of these men is supremely solitary and supremely important to himself. Each of these houses stands in the centre of the world. There is no single house of all those millions which has not seemed to someone at some time the heart of all things and the end of travel.” –G. K. Chesterton

Of course I want you to be happy with your home. But I want more for you. I want you to be happy in your home.

Stay in touch. Ask me questions. Request information. Tell me about big, transitional events in your life—your son’s graduation, your daughter’s big victory, your once-in-a-lifetime vacation.

I got to know you pretty well when we bought your home together. I’m still interested. Let me know how you are doing.

Your home is important. I think this song by Cathy Fink captures it. 

HOME by Cathy Fink 

Home

Everyone needs a place that they like to call home

There’s a sweet melody that embraces your heart

And waltzes you back to your home

A long day at work

A long day at play

A place you feel safe at the end of the day

Home

There are places to go and people to see

Adventures to travel we know

A world full of wonder awaits you and me

But nothing quite calls me like home

A bird in its nest

A whale out at sea

There’s a place in this world that’s just right for me

Home

There’s a home that I live in where soup’s on the stove

And my key’s the right fit for the door

But wherever I travel, wherever I roam

My heart keeps the beat of my home

A long day at work

A long day at play

A place you feel safe at the end of the day

Home
