What We Are Thankful For

With the Thanksgiving holiday only a couple days away, the Petersen Partners team has much to be thankful for this year. We’ve had an outstanding year. As the local real estate market has improved, we’ve had the pleasure of helping so many buyers and sellers this year. Our team, or our family as we like to think of ourselves, has grown, which means we are better able to offer our clients the best real estate services in the metro Atlanta area.

We think we have the best job in the world and we’re pretty thankful for that. The reason we have the best job in the world is because of the people we get to work for – our clients. To us, our clients are part of the family. They’re the foundation of our success and growth and we are thankful for each and every client we’ve had the pleasure to meet. We are so grateful for the trust you place in us.

As we approach Turkey Day, we are reminded of all the many blessings in each of our lives. We wanted to share what we are most thankful for and what we most love about the holiday.

No surprise, food is a common denominator at Thanksgiving. John Morris says his favorite Thanksgiving food is “anything with sweet potatoes in it. And Wine!” Topping Karen Burton’s list are pumpkin pie and especially the pumpkin chocolate chip cookies only found at local Kroger grocery stores this time of year. Dan Petersen may have the most unique food item to load up his plate with. He looks forward to a special family recipe– sour cream and raisin pie.

All the talk about food led John Cole to share a great holiday wish, “May your stuffing be tasty. May your turkey be plump. May your potatoes and gravy have nary a lump. May your yams be delicious and your pies take the prize. And may your Thanksgiving dinner stay off your thighs!”

Of course, Thanksgiving also evokes great memories of family traditions. Dan explained his favorite family tradition growing up was when “my cousins used to come have dinner with us then we would sit around and watch the Nebraska-Oklahoma football game”. John Morris’ favorite Thanksgiving day tradition is “having my kids help prepare the meal”.

Angie Halliburton reminded us how thankful we all are for our military. She remembers one particular holiday very fondly. “One of my favorite Thanksgivings was spent with a battalion of Army servicemen and women.  I was 12 years old and our family dined and visited with these dedicated troops.” Angie says, “I will always remember it.”

With so much to be thankful, we had a hard time listing it all. Sarah Farmer has enjoyed traveling with friends and family this year. Kara Peterson expressed something the whole team agrees with, “I am thankful for the Petersen Partners Team! They’re a great group to work with and they make me laugh every day!”

While we do enjoy a good time and love to laugh (at ourselves mostly), we do sincerely wish you and your family all the best this holiday season. As Jill Petersen and Karen Harris agreed, the love, health, and happiness of our family, friends, and clients really top the list of things to be thankful for. No matter how you spend your holiday gathering, we hope you have a wonderful day filled with all that you love.

Happy Thanksgiving.
