Happy New Year
Happy New Year All! What a year it has been – both personal and business. Every year has its ups and downs. Occasions to remember and lessons to be learned. Here are just a few of my favorite things to reflect on this past year:
Since I have been with Pinon, we had our best year yet-keeping everyone at the office very busy. Brokers worked past the evening hours making sure contract deadlines were being met, making phone calls to get estimates for inspection items, driving here and there to get signatures, and so much more! Stressful at times, but so much fun getting to see the satisfaction of our customers at closing.
I had the pleasure of planning several fun events this year for the company. My favorites all being in December – Christmas Opening, Pinon Open House & the Deck the Door Competition. Each year it just gets better and better. We hosted the Polar Express again this year at the Christmas Opening and had an incredible turn out. Providing cookies and hot cocoa and handing each kid his/her very own silver jingle bell at the end of the movie. It’s such a warm feeling to see the kids’ faces light up when they hear the bells ringing.
This year we celebrated our 10 Year Anniversary at our Open House. We loved getting to see family, friends, co-workers, clients, and community members at our Open House. We are so blessed with such a wonderful support system.
Then of course our Deck the Door Competition. Where people decorate an exterior door in a holiday fashion and submit a picture to be entered into the voting poll. The creativity and effort that goes into these doors is so awesome!
I am so thankful for the time I got off to visit family and friends in the Midwest throughout the year and take a few days off when my oldest niece came to visit. Family time is such a treasured aspect in my life. I was fortunate to get out camping and hiking a few times this year, cross country ski in the winter/spring and ATVing in the summer.
Wishing you all rich blessings and prosperity in 2016!
