ZIG ZIGLAR was a beloved motivational speaker. Here’s a typical Zig-ism: “People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily.”

 Here’s one of my favorites: “Gratitude is the healthiest of all human emotions. The more you express gratitude for what you have, the more likely you will have even more to express gratitude for.”

PRICE REDUCED! 955 Virginia Avenue is now $409,950! Great westside opportunity! Rambling two-story 2344-square-foot home on large corner lot! Located next to lush and beautiful Vinewood Park!

THIRTY-NINE TRANSACTIONS either closed or in escrow to date for The Statesman Team, thanks to many of YOU! Looks like 2017 will once again be our BEST YEAR EVER! (Seems to be a recurring thing year after year). THANK YOU to all who have a part in our success. You are appreciated.

UPGRADES ABOUND in this 1.3-acre ranchette! 13633 Pinto Lane is a beauty.  From the front, it looks like a semi-custom home on a large subdivision lot. Once you enter the grounds, you find that you're in the country after all! TWO Master Suites! Natural gas to property! Room for animals or a huge family garden or orchard...or all three! This home has been lovingly improved over the years. Now $479,950!

SOME PEOPLE dismiss optimism as being unrealistic. I’m not wired that way. I know the way we look at life has a whole lot to do with our outcomes. I like ol’ Zig’s approach. He’s the one who said, “I'm so optimistic, I'd go after Moby Dick in a rowboat and take the tartar sauce with me.” Have a great week!
