Things are off to a bang this year, real-estate wise. I started just a few days after New Years Day meeting with a lovely new client and helping her find a great house in Belfast. Since then I have gone to see three fabulous new listings, one of which is already on the MLS (wonderful three unit multifamily in Camden — absolutely turn key and very profitable) and two which will be ready next week. I have some interesting and interested new buyers to work with and a number of showings lined up. It’s been a great start to January and I’m very encouraged.
Here’s something else that gives me whatever the good endorphins are: split pea soup. I had a hankering for this green comfort food last week and promised a friend I would make it and bring her some for lunch on Tuesday. Monday morning I took two hambones out of the freezer and Monday night I made the soup while my daughter worked away on an essay about the French Revolution and A Tale of Two Cities. (Did you know Dickens wrote Two Cities purposefully as a page-turning popular novel? It does have some excellent suspense, evil characters, and reversals of fortune. Another thing I didn’t realize is that Dickens feared that a similar sort of bloody uprising could happen in Britian, hence his novel was meant as a warning to the citizens there to mend their avarice-filled ways.)
But I digress… I’m sure you’re wondering how the soup turned out and the answer is: yummy. I have more than enough in the freezer for the next time I crave it. Meanwhile, I’m pleased to see and list some lovely homes and I’m somehow managing both to get a little writing in and exercising. I hope your New Year is off to a good start, too!
