I start my day taking care of Brewster, a Bernese Mountain Dog, and 120 pounds of pure love! After play time and breakfast, my husband and I sit down to enjoy morning coffee, browse the local paper and discuss the schedule of the day.
My personal style is a bit organic and fairly minimalist. We decluttered when we downsized and I work hard not to accumulate "stuff". Still, I am always refining and love redecorating!
Secret Passion I love music; it soothes me when I am sad, inspires me when I need a kick in the pants, and makes me happy when I can sing along. (A little known secret… My kids, husband, the dog and maybe even the neighbors know when I am going into a cleaning frenzy; Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera blasts through the house and everyone knows I am in the zone!
Can't Say No to dining out with friends!
I love to cook, but there is an energy and a vibe to dining with friends that I can't resist.
It helps to have all the wonderful restaurant options within a stone's throw, too!!
One of my most meaningful moments... Working with 100 other Realtors® from around the country on Hands of Hope in Baton Rouge, LA in 2006. We joined forces with Habitat for Humanity to build four homes for families displaced by Hurricane Katrina from slab to landscaping in seven days. It was amazing to push beyond my limits in so many ways! The joy these families had when handed the keys to their new homes was so rewarding! When I need a little inspiration, I watch this video and remind myself of the deep joy of helping others. www.handsofhope.com/brianbuffini
Most precious to me is my family. A wonderful, supportive husband; four great kids, each with an amazing spouse; and seven terrific grandkids! Life is great!
