"HOME"WARD BOUND August 2017

YOU Matter…

In the news, right now, there are crazy things going on. Protests, police getting shot, politics with heated rhetoric; seems the daily news breaks, breaks hearts. It is difficult to absorb, and much of it is dividing. I took the opportunity last week, at our company’s monthly day long training event, to make sure everyone was aware of our mission statement.

We get up each day and approach work and life with a mission of putting OTHERS first. I told my team “whoever you are talking to, looking at, thinking about, whoever it is, think to yourself, about them… you matter to me”. Yes! We love selling real estate, but the reason we do it better than most, I believe, is because we approach everyone and each other with our mission in mind: Provide value added life experiences for our clients and each other, serving all - making real estate dreams realities.  This way of thinking means we must go beyond what is required.  One of my favorite restaurants, Chic-Fil-A, calls it 2nd Mile Service. I call it a better way to work and live. 

This may help explain why we also do things differently than other real estate companies, like donating portions of our income to worthy causes.
And speaking of worthy causes…

We are still on a mission this year to raise money for Fanconi Anemia Research Fund! 
The reason is because their research aims to find effective treatments and a cure for Fanconi Anemia, an inherited disease that can lead to bone marrow failure and cancer. They also provide education and support services to affected families worldwide, BUT, they cannot move forward without Sponsorships and Donations. 

And this is where YOU come in!  YOUR REFERRALS 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 we donate a portion of our income on every home sale to the Fanconi Anemia Research Fund. 

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 send me an e-mail, with who you know considering making a move david@cahousingstore.com
2. You can go to www.daviddelgadorealty.com/referrals_help and enter their contact info online. You may also forward the above link to your referral.
3. Of course, you can always call me direct as well at 888-308-4947

You, and your referrals, matter more than ever to my team and me.  As we move forward in this new season, please know we are extremely thankful for you. You are a special part of our business. 

With all my appreciation.

"HOME"WARD BOUND July 2017



Celebrate Your Independence, Too! 

July 4th, 1776 is a momentous day in history for all FREE Countries across the Globe – AND so is the day we buy our own home!!! Owning Real Estate, especially your own home, is a sure fire Celebration of Independence. 

In today’s market, many home owners really want to make a move, but are finding themselves in a catch 22 – whether to sell first or buy first.  They don’t want to end up getting stuck owning two homes or none at all. I am sure you will join me in saying we can’t blame them. 

I also believe that you agree with me on this; home ownership is good for ALL. The more who can buy a home, the more who can sell a home, the more our economy benefits. As John F. Kennedy said, “a rising tide lifts all boats.”

Fortunately, I have a special program for Home Owners wanting to move and Buyers wanting to buy in today’s market that turns the tables on this CATCH 22.

Over the last 20+ years of selling real estate, I have been able to develop and successfully implement a program that allows me to guarantee the sale of a property.  Yup, you read that right.  I actually guarantee, in writing, the sale of a home. Obviously a program like this gives sellers GREAT PEACE OF MIND (a true celebration of independence from fear). I guarantee, up front and in writing, that if their home does not sell at their price and within their time frame – I will step in and buy it myself. The conditions are simple: the seller and I must agree on price and possession date.  

Buyers benefit too, because we are able to ensure they get the home they want and back up their purchase with a satisfaction guarantee: if they are not happy with the home, we will buy it back. This obviously is a win-win for all involved.
  
This is where you come in.

Your friends, neighbors, work associates and family members who may be considering a move can now do so and celebrate true independence from the fear of getting stuck with two homes or none at all.  

And remember… Your referrals help the Children…
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, you can rest assured a very worthy cause benefits as well!

We pledge to give a portion of our proceeds from every single one of your referrals, that leads to a closed sale, to the Fanconi Anemia Research Fund. Fanconi anemia is an inherited disease that can lead to bone marrow failure and cancer. Though it is considered primarily a blood disease, it may affect all systems of the body. Fanconi anemia is also a cancer-prone disease, affecting patients decades earlier than the general population. The Fanconi Anemia Research Fund aims to find effective treatments and a cure for Fanconi Anemia and to provide education and support services to affected families worldwide.

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

     and complete the form, including your Referral’s Contact info.

2. You can call me direct at (888) 308-4947 with your referral's contact info.

You and your referrals mean more than ever to me and my team.  As we move forward into the summer season, please know we are extremely thankful for you and your business.

With all my appreciation,

'HOME’WARD BOUND June 2017



Happy Birthday… Donald 
  


No, June is not the month for celebrating Donald Duck’s birthday.  But there is one Donald in the news that does have a birthday in June.  Happy Birthday to our President, Donald Trump! BUT why would I mention this to YOU?
Well, since you have been kind enough to be a part of our business, I wanted to take the opportunity to give YOU a gift on Donald Trump's birthday. 
I am sure Mr. Trump doesn’t mind.  He seems to have plenty of stuff, so I’d like to celebrate his birthday by giving you (and those you know),
my unconditional lifetime real estate guarantee:  That You and Any One You Refer to Me to Sell The Place they Call Home, Will Be Utterly Overjoyed with the Experience and Outcome!

My team and I are committed to your satisfaction as well as your friends, neighbors, family and associates satisfaction.  So this life time pledge to do a better than good job for you and those you care about is a gift we are happy and eager to give.

Speaking of gifts…

We pledge to give a portion of our proceeds from every single one of your referrals, that leads to a closed sale, to the Fanconi Anemia Research Fund.

'HOME’WARD BOUND May 2017

           Mother Always Said You Should

My Mom used to tell me repeatedly to do this and do that, not to do this and not to do that.  ALL, I recall, very valuable advice. Looking back on it, I can say she was, and still is, a very wise woman. 

Time reveals, in fact, just about every caring Mother is a Wise Woman.  I can see why we carve out a special day each year to acknowledge Mothers.  So here is a shout out to all Mom’s – Happy Mothers Day!! 

And not to be outdone, my wife is a fabulous mother to our son. She provides just the right amount of loving support he needs to be happy, independent, confident, and, at this moment, care free.    

For ALL those whose Mom is no longer with us, may you remember the best about them. In addition to that, there are also many who never knew their Mom, due to unfortunate circumstances. I hope someone stepped in to provide a mother's role in your life. They too deserve a Happy Mother’s Day!

Regardless, we can celebrate this Mother's Day knowing Moms are special in more ways than we can count. 

Especially the Mom’s who are sitting right now by their Child’s hospital bed not too far from where I type this…

You may recall my team and I are on a mission to raise $10,000 for St. Jude Children's Hospital! We do that by donating a portion of our income from home sales to this very worthy cause.

Right now, there are kids who are trying to beat the Cancer Monster and other debilitating diseases at St. Jude’s.  Those Mothers who have kids fighting for their life are most likely NOT thinking about their special day this month.  They are simply just being “Mom” doing what a real loving Mom does.  God bless them for it.

This is where you can help…

As you probably know St. Jude Children's Hospital does great work in helping Kids fight through and survive nasty diseases and cancers.  And as you know St. Jude’s depends on sponsorships and donations to provide top care while keeping family costs to a minimum.

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, you can rest assured a very worthy cause benefits as well!

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

      and complete the form, including your Referral’s Contact info.

2. You can call me direct at (888) 308-4947 with your referral's contact info.




Remember our promises to buyers and sellers!

Home Sellers Receive this guarantee:  Your Home Sold at Your Price or We’ll Buy It!*

Home Buyers Receive this guarantee:  Guaranteed 100% Satisfaction With Your Home Purchase or We’ll Buy It Back!*

Life moves fast for some and we are eager to make the Home Selling and Buying experience a smooth rewarding one. Over the last two decades of helping thousands 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, but that a portion of the income we receive will go toward a very worthy cause. 


You and your referrals mean more than ever to me and my team.  As we move forward in this new season, please know we are extremely thankful for you and your business.

'HOME’WARD BOUND April 2017

TAX Day – Ugh!! 


I recently read where we were working Jan. 1 through June 30th of each year, just to pay all of our taxes. In Canada, add another month or two. After that, you keep all you make. Prior to that, 100% goes to the government in some form or fashion to pay for some kind of government worker, work program, social program, defense, project, health care, common good, common bad, etc. Whatever you want to call it, April 18th is TAX day; the deadline for filing your federal income taxes in the U.S.A. Canucks have to file by April 30th. Why April?  

After the 16th Amendment was passed (giving Congress the power to lay and collect taxes on incomes) the first tax day was approximately one year after the 16th Amendment was enacted, March 1, 1914. Eventually it got pushed to April to give IRS employees more time to complete the workload. Some speculate it was done so the government could hold on to refunds longer, allowing it to earn more interest for them.

While I sit here typing this, St. Jude has a full house of kids fighting for their lives.  For them and their parents taxes are not “top of mind”, health is. Living is. Surviving is.  As you may have heard, St. Jude is front and center in the fight against nasty diseases that destroy or cut short the lives of children.  We are thankful to have such a wonderful facility, doing such great work to help heal and save young people.  

So even though we are trying to figure out how much we owe the Uncle Sam, many are simply hoping they can be here to actually pay taxes.  This is why we here at David Delgado Realty Group have resolved to do what we can to help.  

For every house we sell this year, we are donating a portion of our income to  St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Our goal, again, is to raise $10,000 to help them in their quest to Heal, Save, Cure and Comfort Children under their care.

This is where we need your help… 

For every referral that leads to a sale or purchase of a home, Delgado Realty Group will donate a portion of our income to help St. Jude continue their quest to provide the best treatment to children under their care.

Either way, your referrals are in good hands and help us contribute to a good cause.  

Life moves fast, for some, and we are eager to make the Home Selling and Home Buying experience a smooth, rewarding one.  Over the last two decades of helping thousands 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, but that a solid portion of the income we     receive from the transaction will go toward a 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:

      and complete the form, including your Referral’s Contact info.

2. You can call me direct at (888) 308-4947 with your referral's contact info.

'HOME’WARD BOUND March 2017

Hopefully the Groundhog got it Right

All I can say is WOW!  I am sitting here at my computer thinking of how grateful I am for the value so many, like you, bring to my real estate business. Looking out my office window and there is not a cloud in the sky. Temp forecast at 76 degrees today for the high.  Spring is Springing! 

For many across this great country it’s still COLD, gray, and snowy! Others, never see a snowflake all winter long.  It very well could be COLD today right here in Southern California, but it’s not.  One thing is for sure, this winter season is coming to an end.  It does every year without fail. 

Just like the weather seasons come and seasons go, so do the seasons of life.  I’m sure you have noticed, as I have, the older I get, the faster the seasons move by.  These “seasons of life” go by so fast. My hope is that you enjoy each one, or at least grow from each one.  Yes, some of life’s seasons will be HOT and others will be COLD, some high and some low.  The lows we want to move by quickly, the highs we want to stay in forever sometimes.



Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 sums up “seasons of life” better than I can…

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:
¨ a time to be born and a time to die, 
¨ a time to plant and a time to uproot
¨ a time to tear down and a time to build
¨ a time to weep and a time to laugh
¨ a time to mourn and a time to dance
¨ a time to tear and a time to mend
¨ a time to be silent and a time to speak
¨ a time to love and a time to hate
¨ a time for war and a time for peace.

So, what does this have to do with you or your home or real estate? 

Well, Spring is a time of action. People are busy trying to do all the things they could not get done during the winter months.  It's sort of a renewing of the mind and spirit, of many things GOOD!  Hopefully, this special season will bring awesome happenings your way, as your year unfolds.   Wouldn’t it be great to simply just grab your favorite book along with your favorite lounge chair, set it right down in your favorite spot, outside or next to your window, while looking out on a beautiful Spring day and simply RELAX.  Yeah, that would be nice.  My hope is that you will get to do something like that on more than one occasion this Spring and REALLY enjoy the place you call home! The next season will be here before you know it.

Unfortunately, there are some that will have a Spring they would much rather forget.

Like it says in Ecclesiastes, with all the beauty this time of year brings, there is also the ugly for some.  As I am typing this, St. Jude Children’s Hospital has a full house of kids fighting for their lives.  For them and their families, the groundhog seeing or not seeing its shadow is the furthest thing from their mind. Don’t get me wrong, these families long to see their kids out in the yard playing or riding their bikes – but for now, they are praying this Spring will be a season of healing. 

Your Referrals Help the Kids…

This is where you can help.  
Life moves fast for some and we are eager to make the Home Selling or Home Buying experience a smooth and rewarding one.  Over the last two+ decades of helping    thousands of families sell their home and/or buy another, we have met some wonderful, loving, caring people.  People like you! 

For anyone considering a move that we help, you can rest assured that not only will they get the award-winning service we are known for, but that a portion of the income we receive from the transaction will go toward a very worthy cause.

Your Referrals Really Do Help the Kids…   

Over the last two decades of helping thousands 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.

Again, it's easy to refer your friends, neighbors, associates, or family members considering making a move:

1. You can go to:
and complete the form, including your Referral’s Contact info. 
2. You can call me direct at (562) 252-7889.
