Happy Holidays Again

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the neighborhood on almost every house,

Al Gage signs were popping up listed by him and his spouse.


The for sale signs were hung in the front yard with care,

 In hopes that soon a buyer would be there.


A buyer arrives looking for a home with 4 beds,

while visions of a pool and a fireplace danced in their heads,


Could they get their financing, call Rita Marie,

She’ll run a credit check and then we will see


An offer was written, full price not the cap,

Next step the seller “why, gee I must accept!”


Who should we choose for title, Al recommends Patty Miller,

No extra work or paperwork for us, the service was killer,

Escrow was opened, earnest money was sent,

Al Gage had accounted for every last cent,


When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter…

The home inspector had arrived and threw up his ladder,


He found a bad window, broken roof tiles and a backsplash,     The eaves need painting and a few outlets have a cross,

We find we can fix it with not too much cash,

Al knows the right people, we avoided taking a huge contractor loss,


Next is appraisal, Al’s favorite thing—

Comparable sales are provided, hopefully the appraiser will sing,


When what to my wondering eyes should appear,

The buyer’s loan approval with conditions to clear.


The conditions are clear and on to closing with a splash,

The seller gets the most money since the time of the crash,


Hardworking and eager, I knew to choose Al’s Team,

an expert in the neighborhoods, more sales to the extreme.


Contracts, CLUE reports, disclosures! What a list!

They handled it all but we got the gist!


Our house was sold it seems almost before he came,

When leaving he whistled and called them by name,


To Rancho, Now Corte, Now Donatella and Wigwam Creek,

On to Las Palmeras, Crystal Gardens, Westwind and Sage Creek!


For those with a porch but all have a wall!

Now dash away! Dash away! We’ve sold them all,


We will tell all our neighbors, family and even a friend,

The best services available, Al’s

team doesn’t pretend


He sprang (spring might be an exaggeration) to his car as his phone gave a ping,

Off to sell the next castle, put up a sign and make his phones ring,


I heard him exclaim as he drove out of sight:

“Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.

From my team of Rita Marie from Pinnacle Capital Mortgage, Patty Miller from Driggs Title and personally from our family, Terri and I, we wish you the best holidays of your life and ongoing prosperity and health for the new year.
