I’m at the beach, sitting on white, thin sand and staring at the blue, clear water; I must have been 8 or 9 years old. Mom and dad loaded with chairs, coolers, and a basket full of food walked towards me. I sank my feet in the white sand, a habit that I still keep. I felt the sun warm my skin as a subtle breeze cooled it off behind it. I got up and jumped right into the blue clear water. As I came up for air, I heard my mom called my name… “Ernesto, come and put some sun screen on or you’ll get sun burn".
When I moved I left behind many memories like this as well as my loving family. The moment I got on that plane still fresh in my mind. My wife and I were so excited and had so many expectations for the uncertain future that awaited us.
As soon as the plane hit the runway, it stroke me. I had left my whole life, family, friends, and everything I considered important behind.
Now, fast forward a few years and looking back, I can see how blessed I’ve been. I have two amazing Canadian born kids that fill my heart with love… and I have found a place that I now call home.
As a real estate consultant, I now have the opportunity to help others find that special place to call home.Connect →
