Four Seasons of Change as Opportunity in Real Estate

Looking again at the photo I took this morning of an Asheville  dawn (see below) reminded me how quickly the scene changed. You had to be ready with your camera to capture the vermillions and pinks and hints of blue. That got me philosophizing about change in general: CHANGE that is also Opportunity-

CHANGE is right here today- in our routines- in where we live-and possibly even in the way we live.

asheville changing sky at dawn  november 2009Change is one life-process with which we must deal and which we all share. Change -by the very fact that it is universally understood, is a common thread we share in the tapestry of sustainable living. It's just a fact of being in the world. And because of all this, it actually brings with it a strong sense of belonging.

A few thoughts on the SEASONS OF CHANGE in the practice of real estate

Whether that change involves moving from a family farm into the city, or relocating from another state to the Appalachians and the Greater Asheville area, our clients voluntarily are initiating four all-important "seasons"- the sweet spring of optimism, the summer of informed skepticism, the brilliant autumn of realistic expectations, and finally the clear winter of wise choices.

janeAnne - beautiful shot and I love the thoughts about change. Ironically change is the only constant that we know and we can learn a lot from nature about change and how it can be beneficial - rather than spend time and energy on resistance.

For some reason, I have always loved change.  Perhaps it comes from moving so much as a child.  I never got settled into a school, neighborhood, or any given situation for very long.  I welcome change with a smile, along with the kind of determination it takes to make anything work!

janeAnne - this is an insightful and beautiful post.  Perfect for Sunday when we've got time to reflect.  I love the picture - I can only imagine how beautiful it is there. One thing about change in nature is that it's not resistant - it goes with the changes naturally.
