To our friends and clients (who so many times are one and the same),
During this difficult time, when the news is full of uncertainty and fear, we wanted to reach out to the people we are thankful for and express our gratitude for your friendship. We are honored to be a part of this community and thank you for allowing us to be a part of helping you with one of life’s most treasured spaces—your home.
As a team, we are dedicated to walking alongside our community, supporting our neighbors, and focusing as much as possible on the positive. While we don’t know what the future holds, we do believe that God has a plan for all of this and that He has given an opportunity to slow down and spend quality time with the people who matter most. We encourage you to join us in our efforts to both be cautious by practicing social distancing to keep our community safe, and to make the most of this unique time to appreciate the little things He blesses us with every day, including time with our children.
We applaud the parents working hard at home figuring out how to homeschool their children (It’s just started at our house, and to be honest, it’s not going to be easy! Kindergarten, 4th, 5th and 8th-grade studies). We appreciate in a new way all the amazing work teachers and school administration do for our children on a daily basis. Their dedication, patience, and innovation is what makes the classroom such a special place for our kids, even from afar while they continue to contribute to their education online.
This is time we now have to teach our children life skills—how to write a check, how to grow a garden (we just planted ours in the backyard together!), how to do laundry, and about what it means to work hard to provide for our families. Let’s teach our sons to be good fathers, husbands, and citizens. Let’s teach our daughters how to be good wives, mothers, friends, and members of the community. I’ve always said don’t underestimate the value of learning common sense and social empathy, so now is the time to help them shine!
While it may be a stressful season, in the future our children will be able to look back on this as a wonderful milestone—a special time with their parents and siblings. Maybe this is what God is calling us to do with this time—to invest in teaching our children about life, to give them a brighter future.
Our deepest thanks go out to the brave men and women on the frontlines of this fight-our nurses and doctors, first responders and police-for their tireless efforts in keeping us safe. In true Fredericksburg style, other members of the community are stepping up to help one another too, including all the work and care put in by local restaurants to feed the community and make lunch and dinner pick-up so easy on parents. We applaud you all profusely.
We remain your partners both as citizens of Fredericksburg and as a realty team. Whether you have plans in your future for buying or selling a home, we are dedicated to keeping you up to date with real estate market news as the next few months unfold and to helping you secure the best outcome possible. Each of our team members will be working from home until it is safe to return to the office together, and we look forward to answering any and all of your questions moving forward.
