Winner of the week, Get me to rehab…..

I’m not sure when or where I took this photo..but it was recently. I’m sure I was somewhere on the island and the sun was filtering through the leaves on the tree, over a brick patio! Amazing what I see when I look down! I think I was riding my bike and stopped somewhere. I do NOT take photos while I’m actually riding my bike.

Way back in the day, maybe 3-4 years ago, I used to give names to properties that were on the Broker Tour: Winner of the Week, Get me to Rehab, etc.

I decided that it was too personal for me to give names to the properties. Every motivated Seller would like to have a motivated Buyer whether it’s a palace or a dump. Plus, it’s not my job to say what I think…it’s always about the people, not just about me.

Best, marilyn

Have a fun weekend!
