This is one of those odd little phrases that we use to describe our relation to the source of a piece of information. But where did it originate?
According to The Phrase Finder:
"In horse racing circles...The most trusted authorities are considered to be those in closest touch with the recent form of the horse, i.e. stable lads, trainers etc. The notional 'from the horse's mouth' is supposed to indicate one step better than even that inner circle, i.e. the horse itself."
There's nothing like an unsolicited testimonial - from the source itself - to validate the work you do in helping people sell their homes. In this case, a recent client sold his home with us and he surprised us with this video testimonial.
Here's a snippet of what he has to say:
"We think his Home Advantage Team is a home selling machine."
"...my advice to you is if you want to sell your home in Arlington fast, and for top dollar, you'll want to stack the deck in your favor by listing your home with Steve McKenna."
But don't take our word for it. Check out the video, "How to Sell Your Arlington Home in Today's Market," and hear it from the horse's mouth, so to speak.
And thank you, Merle Braley, for your thoughtful video and kind remarks.
