Knows Her Stuff

I love Sandra Rinomato. She is the hostess of Property Virgins on HGTV.

Now, why do I like Sandra? As Becky and I sat and watched a couple of episodes this Friday night, I asked myself that question. In 2004, I actually did some work for the organization that owns HGTV. Besides that, why do I like Sandra so much?

She reminds me of Anne Kaplan of Coldwell Banker in Buffalo Grove, Illinois. Anne assisted us in buying our house in Grayslake, Illinois in 1997. We then enlisted Anne to help us sell that same house in 2001 as we initiated our move to Northeast Tennessee in the Appalachian Mountain range. Anne was so cool. She listened to us and through what she learned, she understood our preferences. She then honored those preferences as we searched for our house.

I still remember walking into one house and Anne saying, “This is not for us, let’s go on to the next one.” We did not hesitate to turn around and walk out the front door to move on to the next house.

We trusted Anne. Why?

She listened to us. She learned from what she heard. I also remember having a wonderful time searching for homes with Anne – we laughed. And it was obvious that Anne loved what she did. Anne lived out the 4L’s modeled by my friend Kathryn Tucker Windham.

Thank you Anne for knowing your stuff and for loving what you do. I haven’t forgotten you.
