We here at Clancy Real Estate wish you all the best this holiday season!

I want to wish you all a happy holiday this year, whichever one you celebrate! While I’m always happy to chat with you about real estate (especially amid this crazy market), stats and trends are not what I want to focus on today. First, I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart! For those of you who came out to our Thanksgiving pie giveaway, it was a pleasure delivering pies to your cars so we could keep the spirit of gratitude alive in a safe manner. 

Back in March, I shot a video where I said that dealing with this health crisis will be a marathon, not a sprint. We may be looking at another six months until the vaccines take effect, so let’s just stay strong. We can’t give up now in this critical stretch. 

Most of you know I’m a marathon runner. Runners are a different breed—we just like pain, I guess. Recently, I was thinking back on my first marathon; I’d never run more than 20 miles before, and yet there I was on race day, preparing to go six whole miles farther. I remember the pacesetter saying, “At mile 20, the big boy pants come on,” and I suddenly felt a huge psychological block: What’s going to happen at mile 20? Are my legs going to fall off? Well, I hit miles 21, 22, and 23 in stride, but at the 24th mile my legs turned into bricks; the last two miles were just absolutely brutal.

“This health crisis is a marathon, not a sprint; let’s finish strong.”

In a sense, that’s where we are with COVID. Let’s get together for the holidays, but let’s be safe because we’re so close to the last mile. In the spring, I personally knew no one who had contracted COVID-19. Now, I’ve lost count of how many people I know who have had it. 

The race isn’t over, so I implore us all to push a little harder and have as safe of a holiday season as we can. I truly believe that we’ll come out of this stronger than when we went in. Thank you for all of your support this year; it means the world to us. 

If there’s anything my team or I can do to help you as 2020 takes its final bow, just give us a call. We’re always here for you. In the meantime, have an amazing holiday season!
