The Trouble is, you think you have time.
Recently I received a text from my brother, Jeff. He is 2 years older than me.
It read, "It's cancer but they won't know until biopsy next Wednesday how to fix it. It will be OK." Three months later he was gone.
I have had a dream to open a bakery since I was in high school (a LONG time ago). I decided now might be a good time to work on making my dream come true.
The name came from my husband, who years ago called me a Whirling Dervish because I am always in motion and usually doing a number of things at the same time.
The name stuck.
My sister and I bought Prudential Gacono Real Estate from my parents 25 years ago. Jeff also worked with us as a commercial Realtor. It has been a family business for as long as our family has been in the Real Estate Business back in 1975. We were raised in a strong family and were taught that honesty and respect were two of the most important things to live by. We continue that belief in our business. We may be a small office but we have some of the best Realtors working with us. In this instant society where there is often a disconnect with people, when you work with our Realtors you will know that they are looking out for your best interests. Their honesty and integrity will be part of what makes your home buying/selling experience a great one.
I will continue to be a Realtor, a MiMi to 6 adorable grandchildren, a mother, a daughter, a wife, a sister, and now a Bakery/ Coffee Shop owner. My little bakery/coffee shop is a happy, positive morning place for you to get your sugar/caffeine fix. Life is too short to wait to eat dessert! When you stop in, make sure to write down your dream and pin it on the push pin board while you are here. We also encourage you to take a heart magnet with you and share it with someone who needs a little love.
Take a photo, send it to us and we'll be sure to hang it up for all to see.
I can't wait to meet all of you someday soon!
Thank you for being a part of my dream!!
My family is my heart!

Jeff and I... gotta love that red hat!
I have learned that bribing children with yummy stuff to like me works extremely well.
When you have things delivered to our office it means we get to try them out.

There is nothing like a tire swing - no matter how old you are.
