The Love Doctor is in

Not that I am the Dr. of Love or anything like that… But then again, most probably like to believe they are.  After all, Love is a many splendid thing. My favorite Love Description is from 1 Corinthians 13: Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts always hopes and always perseveres.

It doesn’t matter your ‘religious persuasion’ in order to say “yeah, that IS a great description of LOVE”. I am talking LOVE because February is the Love month, rightly celebrated with Valentine’s Day. 

I could go on with all kinds of examples like – Love Your Neighbor as Yourself, even go all business on you with accolades about how much we love doing business with you, or how much we love your referrals and more – but, the point is we do love helping people sell and buy real estate.  And those people say we are good it!

In fact, if it’s OK with you, let me focus just a bit on the REFERRAL request. 

Please know that my team and I are eager to help anyone you know wanting to make a move so much so that we are willing to make an offer that they will LOVE.

For the month of February, anyone considering making a move that you refer to me, we will guarantee them in writing their home will sell or we’ll buy it at a price acceptable to them

We just need to agree on the price and possession date with the seller.

This is where you can help!

If you or anyone you know is considering making a move, we would like to offer them a FREE No Obligation Market Analysis that will give them a real idea of what they can expect to sell their home for. 

Just like we are thankful for you and your business, I am confident your referrals will be thanking you for steering them in the right direction on getting their home sold!!!

AND remember, YOUR referrals help the kids…   

Just like last year, we are back on the mission to raise another $10,000 for The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Florida. We do this by donating to them a portion of our income from the homes we sell. The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Florida does great work helping families in providing housing and meals while their children are battling nasty life-threatening diseases like cancer, Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, leukemia, premature births, devastating accidents, and a myriad of other medical issues. In 2018 RMHCCF marked the milestone of having helped 30,000 families since 1996. This charity lifts the financial burden of housing and meals for families needing to be near their child/ren while they are fighting for their lives, in area hospitals, right here in Central Florida. 

BUT RMHCCF relies on Sponsorships and Donations to provide housing, meals, and care of these families, to help alleviate some expenses and offer emotional care, during a difficult time. So, YOUR REFERRALS REALLY DO HELP THE KIDS… 

Who do you know considering buying or selling a home you could refer to my real estate sales team? 

Not only will they benefit from our award-winning service, but you can rest assured we are also donating to this very worthy cause.  

I want to make it easy to refer your friends, neighbors, associates or family members considering making a move, so here are your options:

1. You can email me at info@frontgatere.com OR

2. Of course, you can always call me direct as well at 407-566-2555. 

Over the last two decades of helping hundreds of families sell their home and/or buy another, we have met some wonderful, loving, caring people.  People like you!  So your referrals, those you know considering a move, that we help – you can rest assured that not only will they get the award-winning service we are known for and the guarantee to back it up, but that a solid portion of the income we receive from the transaction will go toward a very worthy cause.

I hope you and your family are well and this Valentine’s Season brings you much joy and happiness.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

P.S. I have copied and pasted an awesome story about a kid that will Hopefully inspire you, as it did me.  Enjoy!

Jonathan and Gisela Micksch were on a trip to Disney World with their family when their 5 year-old son, Felipe, needed immediate surgery.

Felipe was diagnosed with a Sigmoid Volvulus, which causes acute colonic obstruction.

“Our son has had two surgeries already with another one scheduled later this year. The mental and physical toll of the initial trauma was very difficult, but it brought us all together to help get through it,” said Jonathan.

A Long Way From Home

The Micksch Family was about 1,550 miles away from home when they checked into the Ronald McDonald House on the campus of Nemours Children’s Hospital. It meant so much to the Colorado family that they were able to be close to both of their children during an incredibly difficult and stressful time.

“It was the most important thing in the world to be nearby our son while he was being treated. We would wake up, eat, spend all day with our son, come home and then do it all over again. It was nice to be a short walk away, especially because we were able to care for our 2 year-old son too,” Jonathan said. 

They did not plan on staying in Orlando for very long but ended up having to stay for 30 days. Without the RMH located next to Nemours Children’s Hospital, they would probably have stayed at a hotel nearby at a very significant cost.

“Every minute away from our son was very difficult, being so close to him and not having to worry about where to stay or what to eat was a lifesaver,” Jonathan said.

Help in the House

The family gained a lot of strength from staff and volunteers. They helped the Micksch family with all of the logistics of staying in a remote location and served as a helping hand for the family when they needed it most.

“It was incredible. Staying at Ronald McDonald House took so much stress away from an incredibly difficult situation by being able to stay right onsite at our son’s hospital and not have to worry about many of the day-to-day issues. The staff and volunteers were very thoughtful and nice at the house,” said Jonathan.

The family plans on volunteering at their local RMH once their son has healed and their life returns to normal. They find that during such a difficult time, every family should have the opportunity to be close to their family.

“Now that we’ve stayed there, I don’t know how we would have dealt with our situation without RMH – it just would have been so much more difficult,” Jonathan said.
