Pausing to Express Thanks

It is the week of Thanksgiving and in a desire to live a more purposeful life, I am pausing this week to express thanks!  Thank you first and foremost to our clients and customers, the almost 100 clients that the agents and staff of Huckaby Briscoe Conroy Realty Group with Keller Williams have been given the privilege and pleasure to work with to date in 2015.  It is because of them that we have a business worth owning and careers worth having!  Thank you from all of us that have been given this opportunity to be a part of your life in 2015.  Please know that we would consider it an honor to have you as a “customer for life!”  We believe in long term relationships and treasure repeat clients.

There is a scene in the classic movie “It’s a Wonderful Life” where the father is sharing with the son that there is a fundamental human need for shelter, and their small part in helping people satisfy that need is very meaningful.  That to me is the greatest reason that I give thanks this week – that I have been so richly blessed with this opportunity of a profession that is so noble as to Thank_you_smallhelp people – thank you.

Thank you to those that I work most closely with on a daily basis.  Lizzy, my business partner makes every day a pleasure with her smile and positive can-do attitude.  Chris and Jennifer who keep the team organized and on track, always happy to be of service.  Molly for several years now has made the entire technology side of the business hum with precision. This year, Jody joined the team as our Accredited Staging Professional and Office Assistant and Christina as our college intern.

The Associate Agents on the Huckaby Briscoe Conroy Realty Group are always there to hold an open house or to take care of a potential customer or client.  They keep life interesting and make the group feel like a “team”.  Lizzy and I couldn’t do it without all these folks – truly it is a place where “together everyone achieves more”.

Any real estate business would not be successful for long without a strong, supportive back office – the Keller Williams in McLean, Virginia is the best as far as I’m concerned!  Amina Basic as Team Leader is tops in her field!  Pat Page as Broker keeps us all legal and accounted for.  Ron Cathell as Operating Principle is a visionary and has our back in more ways than one!

Thank you to Sue Huckaby who began in real estate in 1977.  Sue entrusted me as her partner in 2006 and passed the legacy to me in 2008 right before passing away.  It is in her memory that we carry on and yet I would be remiss if I didn’t remember her in giving thanks.

If you have a real estate need or question and are in the Northern Virginia, Washington DC or suburban Maryland area, please contact Karen Briscoe and Lizzy Conroy with the Huckaby Briscoe Conroy Realty Group, Keller Williams Realty at 703-734-0192 or as we would be delighted to be of assistance.  Or visit our website for more information at
