Tomorrow we give thanks on Thanksgiving Day in Las Vegas, Nevada for the sacrifices from those that first came here in hopes of a better life and freedom from persecution. While Thanksgiving Day is a special day where we celebrate with food and festivities that first day the pilgrims gave thanks, it is also a time for me to reflect and give thanks as well.
I'm giving thanks for having a wonderful family, a loving wife of 25 years, 3 Children, and one grandchild Michael who brings me joy everyday. I'm giving thanks to being reunited with my two sisters last month after 45 years of being separated and not knowing if I would ever see or hear from them again.
I'm giving thanks for having made the right decision to move to Direct Access Lending and working with a great team. I'm giving thanks for the owner of the company Shane Watson for mentoring me and seeing in me, my true potential and working with me to take me to the next level. I'm giving thanks to a great friend, and my branch Manager Sam Gibson Jr. who loving calls me dad.
I'm giving thanks to my support team Rosemary Morgan who is my Personal Assistant and helps me schedule my day and keep me on track. I'm giving thanks to Liza Neilson my Escrow Coordinator who helps with the packaging of my loans and addresses any of the issues during the loan process. I'm giving thanks to Erica Arthur my Processor that work tirelessly to get the loan closed once submitted.
I'm giving thanks to all of the Account Executives from the different lenders, Title Representatives, and outside Vendors that I have had the great fortune to work with and are a part of my team. I'm giving thanks to all of my Realtors without them I would not be what I am today and value their friendship.
I'm giving thanks to all of my clients from all walks of life, and from all corners of the world. It is through their eyes I can see what sacrifices they have given to attain the American Dream. I'm giving thanks to all of the Veterans that I have had the privilege to meet and who also sacrificed for our freedoms.
I'm giving thanks to my clients that are from other countries that have placed their faith in me and have accepted me into their culture and into their families.
I have a lot to be thankful for on Thanksgiving Day.
