Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
We asked our team of amazing agents and employees to share what brings them joy around Thanksgiving.
Scott Strevell: I’m thankful for the things you’d expect: good health, a loving family, wonderful friends. Additionally, I’m thankful that my son is settling into his new job in Iowa and thankful that my daughter & future son in-law are successfully finishing up their college education, while juggling the fun challenges of parenthood.
Denise Smith: We have a Turkeyshoot Tournament, with many of the extended family at my brother’s farm in Iowa. My sons or husband have claimed first place and taken the trophy home more than anyone else. We will WIN this year too!
Sarah Nielsen: My husband handles the turkey. He gets out his surgical gloves, stuffs the turkey, makes some sutures, and carefully carves it as if he were making as series of incisions. Thanksgiving has become the day our kitchen turns into an operating room.
Christopher Ojeda: My family! Thanksgiving is not complete without turkey and red wine.
Mikki Plaskett: I’m thankful for a wonderful son and that I’ve led a full and exciting life and as I age, I’m healthy and happy. I’m thankful for a wonderful son and that I’ve led a full and exciting life and as I age, I’m healthy and happy.
Rebekah Groebe: We take turns telling each other what we’re thankful for. Also, I’m the youngest on my side of the family, so it’s fun to hear stories about my family that I’m either too young to remember or that happened before I was born.
Marc Branham: My kids are the coolest! And I always look forward to the food coma.
Don and Kathy Mayer: We are thankful for our strong faith, large family and long time friends.
Trish Charlons (Kansas City Title): My wonderful but quirky family. Thankful to make the Thanksgiving dressing with my 94 year old grandmother that has to have it just her way, no other will do.
Anita Partain: That I come from and belong to such a loving family! Our gathering is very large and we usually take a group walk after dinner.
Donna Varady: Having a job and working with an amazing team of people. This is like a second home!
Chris Hutchings: I’m thankful for family, the memories made and new memories to come. Oh and the Epic battles at the annual Country Lake Estates Turkey Bowl, North vs the South.
Sue Klinksick: My loving family and friends. I always enjoy tasting all of the amazing side dishes and desserts, much better than the turkey.
Aaron Olla: My amazing loving wife and 3 perfect children.
Michael Armentrout: We spend Thanksgiving at my Grandma’s house in Chicago, eating, watching football, and playing games throughout the day/night, love Thanksgiving!
Karen Riley: Perfect health, clear thinking, high energy at 74 years on this planet!
Nancy Ann Durrill: Family, Friends & business. It has been a great 32 years with the best Broker in this business. Thanksgiving is always at our Farm with 48 to 55 family members on both sides.
