THE ROAD LESS TRAVELED IS LONG BUT JUST DO IT
Happy New Year 2012. I am writing my first blog of 2012. Many of you have been asking about Harry D'Elia. I would like to thank many of you for inquiring about my presence and well being. We all face challenges in life from time to time. Well, my challenge was last year about this time. I would like to announce that the roller coaster ride has ended for me and my family. It feels good to be normal and to get down to business. So, what happened to Harry that was so tragic.
My wife of 21 years embarked on a journey back to Louisville, KY, to settle her parents affairs. We only calculated her being gone for two months. It lasted nine months. Both of my inlaws were diagnosed with dementia. So, the plan was to empty the house and put it on the market for sale. It sounded like a logical plan when it comes to real estate. Right?
Well, we had to go through 40 years of personal belongings which is never easy. Then, we discovered the home had structural issues that had to be dealt with at the same time. This meant obtaining bids from licensed professionals in the local area and completing the work. We decided to enroll our kids into the public school system. I had to go back to Phoenix, Arizona to continue my real estate business and to take care of my inlaws. It has been a long road.
Also, I decided to join a new real estate company that offers full real estate and property management services to the public. I have never practiced property management. I had to learn this part of real estate from the grown up. Wow! I have a new respect for property managers. Currently, I manager well over 100 units and counting. I am now able to offer my clients a true ONE STOP solution when it comes to real estate
- PROPERTY MANAGEMENT
My life was put on hold last March of 2011 when my father in law died. I flew out to Kentucky to bring my family back home. It was a long and hard trip. We buried my father-in-law with full military honors here in Arizona. It was a great day as they had arranged two planes to fly over his burial services. Picking up the pieces is never easy in one's own life. However, I believe we are a better family after it. I was learning a new part of real estate, closing deals, and taking care of my sick in-laws. I do not regret one thing about it.
3 LESSONS I HAVE LEARNED FROM THIS LIFE EXPERIENCE
- FAMILY FIRST AT ALL TIMES IN LIFE
- I CAN DO IT
- ASK FOR HELP IN YOUR CIRCLE OF INFLUENCE
IT IS NICE TO BE BACK WITH MY AR FAMILY
Make the Call, Set the Plan, Do the Deal$!
