With the holiday season upon us, it's time to reflect on the year and show gratitude for another year well-lived. While there's always something to be grateful for, whether it be friends, family, or a delicious pumpkin pie, today we'll discuss some of the top reasons homeowners have to be thankful as 2021 comes to a close. Read on to learn more!

While the last couple of years have been difficult for many around the world, there are still many reasons to be grateful this holiday season. Check out the top five reasons homeowners can be grateful as another year comes to an end.

1. Living Out the American Dream of Home Ownership

Even in 2021, homeownership is still considered the pinnacle when it comes to realizing the American Dream. So if you're fortunate enough to be a homeowner in 2021, that is definitely something to be grateful for.  

2. Historically Low-Interest Rates

For first-time home buyers, 2021 stacked up to be a great year to become a homeowner. With historically low interest rates, obtaining a home loan and securing low-interest rates was highly achievable. For first-time homeowners, these historically low-interest rates are definitely something to be grateful for as the year comes to an end.  The low-interest rates also helped those wanting to refinance their homes or make improvements, so the low-interest rates for all homeowners is something most homeowners are very grateful for.  

3. The Ability to Live How You Want, Where You Want

Another reason homeowners should be grateful this year is that owning a home affords them the ability to live how they want and where they want. Unlike renting, homeowners have the freedom to decorate, remodel, have pets, and more, all without getting approval from a landlord. This freedom of living your life where you choose and being able to make changes to your environment that enhance your daily living desires is definitely something to be grateful for as a homeowner in 2021.

4. A Place to Celebrate Milestones With Friends and Family

With the holiday season upon us, having a place to celebrate with family and friends is another great reason to be grateful as a homeowner in 2021. There's nothing better than bringing the loved ones together to have a special holiday dinner where memories will be made that last a lifetime.

5. A Safe and Secure Place to Call Home

A final yet essential reason to be grateful as a homeowner in 2021 is that your house provides a safe and secure place for you and your loved ones to call home.  Regardless of what's going on in the world, there's nothing quite like knowing you have a safe place to come back to at the end of a hard day. 

Overall, there is much to be grateful for as a homeowner in 2021!

Are you looking to become a first-time homeowner? Or maybe even looking to sell your current house and find a new place to call home? Well, if any of the above scenarios sound like you, it's time to check out your home selling and buying options.

I'm Selling


Thank you all for your help!

Colleen, Paul and Elena,

Thank you for all of your help in selling my brother’s house at 1008 Becker.  Penny Farrall told me she had located a good realtor for me and she was so on target.

It is hard selling a piece of property that isn’t yours, is filled with stuff and is 2,000 miles away.  You all made it so much easier.

Paul – you were spot on with the sales price and marketing.  There were so many offers to choose from.

Elena – I appreciated all of your communication with me throughout the process as well as checking on the vacant house from time to time.

Colleen – we had the most interaction with each other over the last several months.  I so appreciated your calm, knowledgeable approach as you guided me through the various legs of the journey.

Professionalism, Responsiveness

Paul and Colleen Tosello have exceeded our expectations of realtors in every way - in fact, over the course of our experience with them they served as so much more!

We relocated to Keller on a job transfer and chose Paul and Colleen after being referred through the Ramsey network.  Almost immediately, we received a call from Paul.  He spent 45 minutes on the phone with us genuinely investing in getting to know us and learning what our needs were.  We were blown away by how kind and professional he was and committed to them.

We briefly explored the existing home market but ended up building.  They expertly guided us through the process, gave us sound advice and made sure the build was a good investment for our family.  Over the last year, Colleen has been a tireless advocate in dealing with the builder and our mortgage company.

Colleen did all that while also giving us great advice on many different questions we had about the area and other services (schools, churches, contractors, childcare, etc.).  We are incredibly thankful for their professionalism and guidance - we couldn’t have done it without them!

Hands down the best realtor experience we’ve ever had in our 10 (yes, 10) moves!  Highly recommend!!

Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value

Paul and Colleen were absolutely wonderful. We started our home buying process while living across the country. They both met with us numerous times when we would fly in, over zoom meetings, as well as with our builder. Colleen and Paul know the area inside and out and have helped us (and still are!!) with getting us involved in the community. Absolutely wonderful team. We highly recommend them. We consider them dear to our hearts. Thank you for everything.
