My friend, and realtor, Judy Moses was killed in a senseless car accident this past week. I cannot stop thinking about it and her and loss. I cannot stop thinking about all the things I wanted to share with her about our recent move and how great she is to work with. About all the professional stories that I never got to tell her, or the lessons learned that I was waiting to share when we had the time…
Judy was a terrific agent because she cared so passionately about her buyers and sellers. She wanted them to be happy with their housing choices and completely educated before they made that choice. I remember in 2005 when there was plenty of inventory and houses were flying off the shelf like bread before a hurricane, Judy told me that she hated the market even though she was selling a lot of real estate. She hated it because she felt like some buyers were making bad decisions because winning a bidding war was becoming more like sport. She would rather not make a sale than have a buyer make a bad choice!
We talk about living in the moment. Boy, that can be hard to do in our fast-paced world. What does it even mean to live in the moment? I think it means, pick up the phone and say hi to a friend, be spontaneous on a beautiful day and have lunch outside with a friend or colleague. Drop everything and go home and love your dog. Give him a kiss and take him for a walk! Notice the sky, find the good in everyone, give generously of yourself.
If you can find your self living in the moment, take a minute to celebrate Judy Moses, because you will be honoring her by living as she strived to do.
Especially, the part about kissing your dog!
Rest in peace my friend.
