New Year Motivation!

picture of a motivational quote

As 2019 comes to an end, I think we could all use some motivation for starting the new year with a BANG!  Here are some powerful motivational quotes to be reminded of:

1. “Winners don’t wait for chances, they take them’’. Anonymous

2. ‘’Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do’’. Pope John XXIII

3. ‘’Do the one thing you think you cannot do. Fail at it. Try again. Do better the second time. The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire. This is your moment. Own it’’. Oprah Winfrey

4. ‘’We should not give up and we should not allow the problem to defeat us’’. A.P.J Abdul Kalam

5. ‘’Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it’s always your choice’’. Wayne Dyer

6. ‘’I’d rather attempt to do something great and fail than to attempt to do nothing and succeed’’. Robert H. Schuller

7. ‘’Even if you fall on your face, you’re still moving forward’’. Victor Kiam

8. ‘’Losers live in the past. Winners learn from the past and enjoy working in the present toward the future’’. Denis Waitley

9. ‘’Your limitation—it’s only your imagination’’ – source: Success.com

10. “Nothing worth having comes easy.” ― Theodore Roosevelt

NextHome in the Community

At NextHome Custom Realty, we love being able to connect with our local community.  We do so by participating in local events, joining clubs/organizations and interacting on social media.

Most recently our broker and owner, Carol Smith, decided to visit with different elementary schools in Frankfort and read to 1st and 2nd graders.  LBAR (Lexington-Bluegrass Association of REALTORS®) provides the book and she takes the initiative to meet with the children and create a fun, interactive environment.  Carol said that her favorite part about the experience is seeing the excitement on their faces while she was reading to them.  She explained how when she would ask questions they would all be so so eager to answer and contribute.  Once she reads to the children, the book is donated to that school’s library.

Being involved with members of the community, even our young ones, is such an important factor in how we go about our real estate business.  Our values reflect in our actions.  We do not believe in waiting for clients to come to us, find/sell a home, collect commission and move on.  NextHome Custom Realty has more feeling in the business, hence the word “custom” in our name.  We ask, we listen, and we deliver.  Real estate transactions are one of, if not the biggest transaction people complete.  It’s an important and time consuming task.  We focus on building relationships and trust and proving that our custom strategies are like no other.

We would love to see you out and about at different events and hear from you on social media as well!  We post about events on our Facebook page and on this blog, so stay up-to-date!  You can also find us on Instagram as @nexthomecustomrealty.

Check us out and see why we are your neighborhood REALTORS®.
