About Edie Webber
If we get the chance to work together, I think you should know a little more about me.
My current state of happiness and realized dreams is hard won. I have been involved with real estate my entire career and believe it the best investment most families will ever make. I have a wonderful family that I treasure: 1 husband, 3 boys, 3 new daughter-in laws, 1 new grandson, 3 horses, 2 dogs, 7 chickens, 10 to 12 cows on any given day, and a donkey that is trespassing. I live on an amazing ranch in Paradise Texas (yes it is) where I enjoy foxhunting, dressage, and the outdoor life.
I wallow in an insane amount of joy, love, prosperity, gratefulness, health and happiness. But this was not always the case. We all go thru things, all of us are or have been members of the “walking wounded".
My ignorant bliss came to a crashing halt shortly after I got married and then pregnant (yes in that order). Although married a wonderful loving man, a total lack of being prepared for adulthood threw us into instant financial turmoil that took everything we had, which wasn't much. I was defeated before I really ever got in the game.
At the naive age of 22 I was totally hopeless. Homeless, broke, and had a huge growing belly to remind me daily that there was a bigger dilemma coming. I could forsee my life falling miserably low of my young dreams and expectations. I thought I should give up on the dreams of being wealthy and prosperous and living in my dream home. I was destined for a mobile home trailer park furnished with furniture from Goodwill. I should make the best of it.
So this is when God and I had a serious “come to Jesus" meeting. I had proudly struck out on my own and failed miserably. My anticipated launch into adulthood was a disaster. I knew I was beyond my resources and abilities. So I begged God to take care of me, my family, and my new baby as I had botched it badly. He heard me, or rather, I heard Him for the first time. I felt his promise that He would never leave me or forsake me. I was a child of the King.
So my launch was a disaster, but who says we can’t start over? And yes, I did live in the predicted mobile home with my babies for a bit, and had some very interesting neighbors. But this is where I launched my first successful business which quickly got us out of the mobile home and we bought our first house.
Then I began my life as a real estate entrepreneur. Now this paragraph could go on and on, but to sum it up : Each endeavor was met with tremendous action, great can-do attitude, gained momentum, and blossomed into other opportunities. Some were flops, some were hits. But I just kept swinging for the fences. Ignoring the misses, and hoping for the big win.
Fast forward to now: I own the successful Pinnacle Relocation Services ( www.PinnacleRelo.com) and have on of my sons and husband working with me in that business. We enjoy working with each other and with our clients. I enjoy encouraging my family to swing hard every time at bat.
I live in my dream home on our family ranch in Texas and have a stable full of amazing horses, one of my hardest decision is which one to ride on any given day. Great problem to have right?
I live a life of gratefulness. Grateful for everything: the trees, sunshine, coffee, wine, hot water heaters, air conditioned seats in my car…. Loving life begins with loving the beauty and people that surround us daily. When you can lay in your warm bed, with your covers up to your nose, grateful that you woke up, grateful for the snores of the man next to you, love the sunshine coming thru the window…. and it’s just a typical Monday morning… you have truly found happiness.
I whisper “Thank you Lord for the blessing in my life" Then throw back the covers ready to take over the world (again).
My current state of happiness and realized dreams is the hard won result of a lifetime journey. I have been involved with real estate my entire career and believe it the best investment most families ....
