Homeward Bound April 2021 Newsletter

Welcome to the month of April.  By the time you are reading this, you will be deep into it.  That means I can’t play any April Fool jokes on you.  Never been a fan of those anyway.   At the cost of sounding like an old stick-in-the-mud I always found it a bit “eye rolling” but, that has never kept me from playing along anyway.

Another BIG deal in April is TAX day! Yep! Deadlines for filing those personal income tax returns. We get a slight reprieve this year as the FED is giving us until May 17th to file. I don’t think most people mind paying taxes as long as they are being put to good use.  I think it’s the perception of waste that bothers most citizens.

Both days mentioned above are conversation starters for sure. One full of funny stories, the other maybe not so much. There are few days more memorable than the day you buy your dream home. That day is supposed to be fun, exciting and a great feeling of accomplishment.

Your Referrals Help The Community!

If you or a friend are thinking about selling, make sure to choose a real estate company you can trust!

A real estate company with experience, proven results and a give-back philosophy!

Therefore, we offer guarantees and assurances to our clients.  We call this Our Risk Removal System.  Like our Guaranteed Sale Program: Your Home Sold at a Price Agreeable to You or We’ll Buy It*. And our VIP Buyer Satisfaction Guarantee:  If You Are Not Happy With Your Home, We Will Buy It Back!*  In fact, our Exclusive Seller Agreements Offer 10 Unprecedented Guarantees.  In my experience, these guarantees elevate our service and our clients experience. 

And by now, four paragraphs into this month’s Homeward Bound, you are wondering how the headline ties into any of this. If you are receiving Homeward Bound for the first time, you will notice we give back to those in our community who need help the most.  Like the Kids at Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Family Alliance.
Just a short drive down the road from where I’m typing, in The Texas Medical Center there are kids, many fighting for their lives.  And that is no April Fools joking matter.  It’s also likely taxes are the furthest thing from the minds of the parents with kids that are fighting cancer.

As you know Candlelighters has been supporting those kids and their families through their battles with cancer. They have been providing emotional, educational and practical support for over 37 years.

Most don’t know though that Candlelighters is a non-profit.  They depend on sponsorships and donations to provide their world class care and keep costs for the families of these beautiful kids to a minimum. 

As you know, we love making guarantees!

Like our Buyer Satisfaction Guarantee: Love the home, or we’ll buy it back! Or our Seller Guarantee: Your Home Sold or We’ll Buy It! And we guarantee that a portion of our income WILL go to a very worthy cause like Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Family Alliance ! AND remember, your REFERRALS help the Kids!

This year, we are on a mission to raise $10,000 for Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Family Alliance. We do this by donating to them a portion of our income from homes we sell. 

So, when you or anyone you buy or sells the place they call home with us, we deliver on our exclusive guarantees and award-winning service AND a very worthy cause benefits as well.  

Their programs and services for families of children with cancer are not limited to in-patient families, but extend beyond the hospital walls. Over the years, they have learned how critically valuable it is for their Parent Consultants to be able to personally hand parents of children with cancer practical assistance such as a meal pass, parking assistance, or gas card; as well as provide opportunities for families to make memories together outside the hospital walls. “It is our greatest honor and privilege to bring this type of comfort to childhood cancer families when stress is so high and they feel so helpless.”

As a leading non-profit, Candlelighters depends on Sponsorships and Donations to continue its leading-edge service. We proudly donate a portion of our income from real estate sales to Candlelighters to help them continue serving the needs of those who most need it in our community!

Why I Give to Candlelighters:
I was introduced to the Candlelighters organization from a colleague of mine 7 years ago. She has been passionately working with them for close to 20 years and shared with me some of the amazing experiences and stories of the children and families that she had the pleasure of meeting over the years.
I must admit, her passion is really what got me interested in finding-out more about the work that candlelighters has been doing. As I started my research, I was just overwhelmed by the numerous challenges that these families must deal with and think about aside from the unimaginable grief and worry they endure while their child suffers from Cancer.

Candlelighters has really gone above and beyond with not only being a place that every child and family feels loved and welcomed but is also a huge supporter to all those families forever. Their support extends to families of children on-treatment, long term survivors, adult survivors, and those whose child lost their battle with cancer. Cancer does not discriminate and neither does Candlelighters. 

To continue their great work they they need our help with sponsorships and donations to fund their programs
I encourage you to visit their website at  and check out the better than good work they are doing in our community!
