Introducing Real GiftBOKS

Hello and Welcome to Real GiftBOKS!

I want to introduce myself. My name is Shauna Morrissey, and I am a west coast original. My partner, Joe Potier, is a Washington State native. And we moved, intentionally, to the middle of Kentucky.

Yes, there is a story, isn't there always! We both owned property outside of Seattle in the beautiful little town of Snohomish, Washington. I owned a wonderful horse boarding stable full of fantastic people, and Joe raised a beautiful daughter and owned an iron-hanging construction business. But, unfortunately, year after year the traffic became worse and worse. The pace of life got faster and more expensive.

It started with a question, why do we have to stay here? What other options might be out there? Thus, the quest for change began. A few months later, we had settled on Kentucky, sold our farms, and bought a new one in the bustling metropolis of Berry, KY... population 250. Leaving what we knew and charging headlong into this new life chapter has been empowering and fulfilling. With amazing neighbors, gorgeous views, space for the plethora of animals we dragged with us across the country, life could not be better.

We began talking about what comes next while sitting around the fire one evening with all our ideas. We talked about the buying and selling of a total of 5 properties in 4 years. We talked about the agents we met and how they helped make this new life possible. One thing led to another, and we discovered our next business. It turns out, being semi-retired does not work for Joe and me! We realized that our combined life experience brought a vast knowledge base to a burgeoning idea. Joe's skills with construction and engineering, partnered with my 20 years of experience in the gifting/art industry, meant we had the essential ingredient to start a fantastic gifting company.

But how to enter an already congested industry? Focus is key. Find an underappreciated sector, create an appropriate gifting experience, and keep your focus on just the one market. Real Estate closing gifts were a natural conclusion. Having participated in the real estate game for the four previous years, we felt that our insight and experience would be invaluable to launching this new business endeavor. RealBOKS is the culmination of 6 months of careful planning and thoughtful design.
