Where's Your Humanity? I found mine this week when I had the honorable pleasure of volunteering for Habitat for Humanity at NAR's Convention in Anaheim, California. A pleasure indeed!
I've always been pretty good at building things. When I was a little girl, I used to play with Lincoln Logs instead of Barbies. I loved building 'play' houses... it felt good to create something with my hands. Fortunately for Habitat for Humanity, my childhood creations paved the way for building dreams... one home at a time.
I was fortunate to be part of a team of REALTORS® who built three homes for Habitat for Humanity in Orange County, CA. t felt good to wear the blue shirt with the REALTOR® logo on the back while pounding away with our hammers. There was enormous pride in the room when we saw our finished 'framed' houses being raised. Definitely a teary-eyed moment.
It's a good feeling to give back. Even better when you can give back to a profession that's been, frankly, wild and crazy these past few years. When you put your heart and soul into something like Habitat for Humanity... passion begins and dreams just happen!

The best part... we got to sign our home... with LOVE!
