RED Friday is an important day. Why? Because it gives us a chance to remember those who have not only deployed, or are currently deployed, but also those we lost over seas. I take that a step further. It is also a chance for us to think about those Veterans who are back home. Where the real deployment is...I served in the United States Marine Corps, with 2 tours to Afghanistan. Coming home was always the hardest part of both those deployments for me. When you come home, and go your separate away from your Unit on leave or end your active service, it seems as though everything you went through comes back to you. Every safety brief I received on my way home was always the same. Expect to deal with PTSD for a period of time while you adjust. For some, it was easier than others. The period of time spent avoiding every pile of trash in the road thinking its an improvised explosive devise, or making sure that pot hole you just hit wasn't an IED, can vary from person to person. Unfortunately, for some it lasts for far too long. In the most extreme it lasts until its too late to turn back. Remember Everyone Deployed is about not only remembrance, but for me, its about doing something each and everyday to not only help veterans who are struggling, but to help OUR community. The reason Veterans served was to protect this Great Nation, and the sovereignty we all have. We cannot forget that, nor shall we take it for granted. We can all do 1 thing to help a Veteran. We can all do 1 thing for anyone. You never know how that 1 thing could literally save someone's life.
Wear RED on Friday, in support of our Veterans. past, present, and future.
RED Friday is about something greater than each individual. It is greater than myself. And it is greater than you.
and Semper Fi.

Many people ask me, “Do you do rentals.” The short answer is yes.
"I had tried working with other realtors before purchasing my first home with Michelle, and she was by far the most knowledgeable of the market, professional and a pleasure to work with. She has a great personality and superb negotation skills! The seller of my home was difficult to deal with(to put it mildly), and she knew exactly how to handle it to make sure the deal closed. I had a tight deadline as I had to be moved out of my apartment by a certain date and our days were limited on making it happen. On top of that my first lender made a mistake on my loan underwriting file, and I had to QUICKLY find another alternative and Michelle had the professional network to make it happen. When I go to sell my home or buy another, Michelle and her team will be getting my business again!"
