Game of Scrabble?


Choosing a realtor doesn’t need to feel like a game of scrabble, wondering if you’ll find the right tiles or not.

National Scrabble Day is observed annually on April 13th. Originally named Lexiko and then Criss-Cross Words, Alfred Mosher Butts eventually settled on the name Scrabble.  The amateur artist and unemployed architect developed the word game in the midst of the depression.  Still, it wasn’t until 1948, a final name change and a trademark that Butts finally began to produce the game.   

Scrabble is played with two to four players who score points by forming words from individual lettered tiles on a game board marked with a 15 x 15 grid.

In the United States, the name Scrabble is a trademark of Hasbro, Inc. Scrabble is sold in 121 countries with 29 different language versions. Worldwide, over One hundred and fifty million sets have been sold with sets being found in nearly one-third of American homes.

Scrabble has long been one of my favorite games. I can remember that my first game was probably around the age of 8 or 9 with my British grandmother. It was her favorite game. As the years went by, I spent hours playing with my mom, my grandmother, and later my wife, Violet. Picking up the tiles and making a lot out of a little is a great pastime.

Of course getting a “Scrabble” was the best feeling especially when you did not think you had a good hand. A “Scrabble” of course may well provide the highest score of the game.

The same is true of being a realtor. People call me to buy a home, or they want to sell a home. I enjoy each piece of “tile” that I pick up. With each selection on board, I strive to make the most points possible for my clients. But my role as a realtor is not really a game, but a career that I enjoy.

Call me today and let me help you pick the tiles that will get you the “Scrabble” you want in the form of a brand new home.
