Dear Dave,

Everyone has a "happy place", or you should! 
Where is your happy place?
I seem to have 2 of them recently. The first is our little condo in Palm Springs. The weather is great, the pool is amazing, the city always has fun activities going on, and it is less than a 3 hour flight away!
Ocotillo Lodge Pool_ Palm Springs
Our 2nd happy place seems to be a summer vacation in Europe. For the past 4 years, we have done some great trips in Europe - 2 river cruises (Danube and Rhine) and 2 ocean cruises (Baltic and British Isles). There is still so much more to explore, so we will be back!


Happy selling and finding your client's happy places!
Dave Emery
