Happy New Year! My New Year’s Eve had me at a showing in Colorado’s foothills. I arrived early, opened the house before my potential buyers arrived and decided to move my car to the side driveway to make it easier to exit the property. Well, I was a little too confident with my parking skills and the sequence of revers-drive-reverse-drive resulted in my car stuck on the side with the driver’s side tilted a little too much to the edge of a hill (as mountain properties often include).
My buyers arrived and had both a tow strap (Google it) and an engineering degree.
And then the next set of buyers, with their agent, arrived (early) for their scheduled showing. . And together, with two of the buyers and the other agent, got my car righted and away from the edge.
This could have gone sideways (literally) in so many ways. Some agents and their buyers might have walked by citing time constraints, but that was not the case on this chilly, sunny New Year’s Eve morning.
It was a new year’s eve mini miracle.
I sent a proper thank you note to my potential buyers because without a tow strap I would have waited a few hours for a tow service.
I remembered the other buyer’s agent’s first name and the name of his office so I emailed him Monday morning to thank him and his out-of-state buyers.
It made for a memorable showing and renewed my faith that there is more good than bad in our world.
Let’s lean into the good in 2023 (but not on the side of a hill)!

SHOP NOTES: Loft has a huge sale going on this weekend. Links below. I ordered the bubble sweater for the chilly season between now and April! And I love the green turtleneck. It is the perfect shade of green. I like the open jacket for work days or just to dress it up a little when I run to Kroger! ha! I could probably wear an xs but I prefer a roomier fit! So I would say they fit true to size.
