It’s hard to believe that after 25 years with the same company – and many of the same people – I am leaving. As I swim through my last day here, I am sad, happy, scared, anxious and joyful – mostly joyful. It all seems so surreal.
A few days ago the clan at Coldwell Banker Mason Morse Real Estate threw a going away party for me. Much to my relief, it wasn’t a formal teary-eyed affair. It was linked to a scrumptious breakfast where I was showered with gifts and gas money (Yay!) and lots of hugs. Yep, it’s going to be hard to leave my comfortable family behind and venture off into the great unknown.
Back in 1992, I met longtime broker, Jeff Bier, in Redstone. He invited me to join his crew at the Mason & Morse office in Carbondale. I was a brand new broker and not sure if this was the gig for me, but my desire to try something new superseded my fears and I agreed to give it a try.
From day one, everyone in my new office offered support, advice and leadership. Over time our family grew, and like most families we’ve buried a few also. Our logos and signs have changed, the office building morphed into a beautiful lodge, and the internet has become an indispensable tool as the company continues to lead the way in the local and global real estate markets.
But at the very core, this assembly of fine professionals has guided me through some of the best – and worst – times of my life. For that, I am eternally grateful! (photo courtesy Rita Brooks, Potato Days in Carbondale)
