Happy Independence Day from Lori Baden

Reasons to celebrate…

It’s been a while and this will be short, but expect to see more posts from me soon, but I have lots of reasons to celebrate during these trying times.  I always try to focus on the positive and hope you are too.

I’m celebrating my daughter Hannah who graduated with honors amongst the chaos of Covid 19, from Belmont University and just moved to Nashville permanently to pursue a career in music business.

I’m celebrating the health of my son Jacob who is Charlotte and praying that he finds another job soon. He’s super smart and great at health and nutrition which a lot people need right now, so I’m hoping he’ll focus on that vs Food and Beverage.

I’m celebrating that my husband Joe has kept his job at Gulfstream so far, although he was switched to weekends. But that may not be an entirely bad thing…

Because… I’m celebrating that I’m now back in real estate sales full time vs being in a Broker or Management position. That means I’ll have my weekends free to work with you or someone you know.

I’m celebrating eXp Realty because even though they had to make some recent cutbacks, this model was built for this economic crises. We still have over 60 hrs of live training and networking per week!

I’m also celebrating that we now have over 28,000 agents that I can refer you to in the US, Canada, the UK and Australia.

Let me know if I can ever be of assistance to you in the Hilton Head/ Bluffton/ Beaufort markets or if you need a great referral agent. 853.505.3132

And last but not least, I’m celebrating Mother’s Day weekend. It’s the hardest and best job I’ve ever had. I’m sure all of you will join me in that celebration!

I look forward to more celebrations with you.

Effort…

Do you recognize limitations or effort?

Sometimes it’s the little things that inspire me and really make me think.

Like seeing this little Eastern Box Turtle climbing our fence just a bit ago. He was trying SO hard in spite of his limitations and obstacles. I really admire his effort.

Whether it be your in your business, your relationships, or in yourself…. Do you see limitations and obstacles? Or do you see effort?

By the way, I rewarded this little guy’s effort by placing him in the thicker greener grass on the other side. He earned it. Maybe there is somebody’s effort you need to recognize too…

 

So I Did This Thing…

Find out why I’m no longer Lori Bee.

So in case you didn’t notice,  my name has changed.   Yes, that’s a good thing.  Actually, a great thing.   I got married on Black Friday, ending 47 years of Bachelorhood for my Joe.  LOL.

Signing the license and ending 47 years of Bachelorhood !

 

Actually, I’m the one that’s blessed… he waited 47 years to find “the one.”

We got married at home here in our barn. It was a gloriously beautiful fall day.  Just perfect.  I hope all of you will rejoice with us.  We are truly best friends, in love.

And as a side note, I’ve been crazily busy with work too.  Yes, I’m still in real estate. Still with eXp Realty.  It’ll be 4 years soon.  Since then we’ve grown from just over 1000 agents to 25,000+ nationally, and from 40 to well over 700 here in SC.  Production volume has grown from $90 million a year in 2017 to over $581 million here in SC, in 2019.  To say I’m proud, is an understatement! As Designated Managing Broker, I oversee operations in South Carolina for this wonderful company.

We have over 30 agents here locally to assist you, and I do referrals all the time.  Locally, statewide and nationally.  Let me know if I can assist you in finding your piece of paradise, like I’ve found mine.  It would be my pleasure.

Update from Senator Davis on the Jasper Ports

Hear it here first… an update from Senator Tom Davis, on the future of the Jasper Ports. This project would mean so much to Jasper and Beaufort Counties in South Carolina, and to Savannah, Georgia too.

Call me, Lori Bee- eXp Realty, to assist you with your future in Jasper County.   I live here and I care.  843-505-3132
