We took one final look in the mirror. Our ensembles looked spectacular and we smiled at each other as we left our home for the event. We waited for this night since the surprise announcement during our sales meeting back in August. It’s not like we counted down the days. We weren’t necessarily watching the calendar. We were just excited because we love our city and the good folks in it. We were excited because we love what we do. We were excited because we love each other.
We drove out of the Villa’s of Legacy West and made our way to the Chamber’s Best of Plano Gala. We reflected on what this honor meant to us.
When you look at the bits and pieces of our life together, a fascinating story comes together. It’s a happy and most definitely a blessed one about how our personal and professional lives successfully entwine.
We’re a happily married couple navigating the real estate business for over 25 years. We experience the extreme highs and lows the industry endures, together. We’ve seen the best and worst of times in the lives of homeowners. First-time buyers, career promotions, families relocating, people receiving cash windfalls, and more are all events we’ve celebrated. Then there are divorces, the partner disillusions, those moving because of illness or the inability to take care of one’s self and the saddest of all, estates.
That’s why celebrating these happy moments together mean more than the awards on a shelf. We are each other’s cheerleaders, accountability partners and best friends. Now, on this night, our wonderful city said, “We appreciate you.”
It just doesn’t get better than that.
It’s a Party!
The Chamber really put on a great event at the Dallas/Plano Marriott at Legacy Town Center. We had a fantastic time catching up with friends we know and meeting some new friends. The awards went to so many great people. One great example was Marbie Jackson, Medical City Plano Board of Trustee Member, who was honored with the ‘Athena Award;. The Hendrick Scholarship Foundation won as ‘Community Partner of the Year.’
We want to thank so many folks! We would love to thank Plano’s Chamber of Commerce and everyone who made the award ceremony possible! We could take up the internet listing them all! Let us just say, if you’re reading this, we thank you! We know you’re wonderful!
