Gratitude – By Barry Matheny, V.P. of Relocation Services


“Unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend…Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” (Melody Beattie).

As we celebrate the close of another year and prepare for the next one; I would be remiss if I did not express my gratitude for all of you that receive this “Market Update”.  Lennox Scott, CEO & Chairman of John L. Scott and I are honored and grateful that you have allowed us the opportunity to share our updates with you this past year.

It is the time of the year when we can take a moment to reflect on what being grateful truly means to each of us. For me I am grateful that I have a chance to work in an industry that makes a huge impact on those we serve. I am grateful for you and the many others that I have gotten to know this year; seen firsthand your passion for what you do; not only in business, but in life. I am grateful for my team and their love for what they do. I am grateful for our realtors who step up every time to create a positive experience for those they help relocate. I am grateful for our leadership and their support for what we do. Last, but not least, I am grateful for family and friends and the love we share.

I wish all of you a wonderful Holiday Season and may the New Year create new moments of “GRATITUDE” for each of you.
