John's Little Red Beetle
Sometimes the best things in life come back to us.
Back in 1980, I got my driver's license in a 1962 Beetle. Her engine broke on the way home and she sat, waiting for me - and then others who took her on - to fix her and fix her up.
Who would have guessed that 35 years later, I'd be driving the better, brighter, faster, louder, more seriously fun version of her?
Yes, she came back to me just in time to be part of our Seriously Fun Real Estate team. When you list your home* with me, the Little Red Beetle will hold up the Open House sign**. When you're buying with me, if you want a ride in her, we'll take the Little Red Beetle to showings.
She's fun, and she's ready for action.
