July 4 - Independence Day. Happy Birthday, America! It's probably not a good idea to light 248 candles, but enjoy some cake anyway.
July 21 - National Ice Cream Day. Any day is a good day for a scoop, but today is all about our favorite frozen treat. What's your favorite flavor?
July 28 - National Soccer Day. Did you know soccer is the most popular sport in the world? If you want to get active and meet people, make joining a team your gooooooooooooooooaaal!
July 28 - National Tree Day. Trees provide oxygen, reduce pollution, support wildlife, and give us shade. These are all good reasons to plant a tree today or support a tree-planting project in your community.

Get ready for the 2024 Summer Olympics! From July 26 to August 11, all eyes will be on Paris as the world's elite athletes compete in 32 sports, including new events like skateboarding, surfing, and even breakdancing. While we wait for the torch to be lit, let's review fun facts about the Olympics. The first Olympics was held in 776 B.C. and continued every 4 years until 394 A.D. It's been 100 years since Paris hosted the Summer Olympics (and 203 medal events have been added since then!) After a 1500-year hiatus, the modern Olympic Games debuted in Athens in 1896. The 2024 Olympic torch was lit in Olympia, Greece on April 16. By the time it arrives at the opening ceremonies, it will have been carried by 10,600 torchbearers across Greece, France, and six French territories. The 2024 Olympic medals will contain an inset of iron from the original Eiffel Tower. Source: International Olympic Committee, olympics.com.

Did you know? The way real estate agents are paid may soon be changing. In the past, sellers’ and buyers’ agents were paid by splitting the commission on a home sale (typically 5% to 6%), and this commission was typically paid by the seller.   But now, due to a recent lawsuit settlement involving the National Association of Realtors® (NAR), sellers will no longer automatically pay commissions to both buyer and seller agents. This means buyers and sellers will have more flexibility to negotiate how their agent will be paid.
