Last month I attended the REMAX Convention in Las Vegas. WOW! What a great organization I am affiliated with. This was my first convention but I have no excuse for why, as I now will be a dedicated attendee. The motivation I found from other REMAX agents, the classes and just the vibe of the whole convention was pure adrenaline. We were asked what the biggest thing we walked away with and for me it was a turning point for expanding my business to include being part of the Children’s Miracle Network. With each buyer and seller I pledge to donate, in their name, a contribution to Seattle Children’s hospital. As a mom of three boys 2 out of 3 have used Children’s hospital services. My oldest has disabilities and when he was younger we were at Children’s many times but never a bad experience and they were always helpful, understanding and dedicated. My youngest broke his arm at age 2 and we were transported by ambulance down to Children’s where he had to have surgery as the break was at the growth plate. A very scary experience to say the least but we always felt he was in the best of hands.
When I was at the convention the little girl that I am pictured with below was the spokesperson for Children Miracle Network and shared her story. 10-year-old Belle Helton, who receives care at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital was diagnosed with a kidney disorder soon after birth. At age 5, her kidneys began to fail. Belle’s mother was a donor match, but after a full health exam, doctors discovered she had breast cancer. Fortunately, Belle’s father also was a match. Now, Belle and her mom, who is cancer-free, are both thriving. Since partnering with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in 1992, RE/MAX agents have raised more than $138 million for the charity’s 170 member hospitals in the U.S. and Canada. Donations help fund pediatric medical equipment and treatments, healthcare services and charitable care.
Now its my turn to contribute and I am honored to do so. Take a look at the video if you would like more information.
If you know of anyone that is wanting to buy or sell here in the Snohomish County or North King County area send them my way. Not only will I take great care of them but they will be helping too. I love referrals!

It was great fun and a very valuable experience and I will definitely be there next year.
