Standing in Line for 1029

I’m so very happy as well as thankful for it being an absolutely gorgeous day and also having had three closings which all took place without any last minute hitches.  In these days of more government regulations concerning disclosure to buyers, it can be a bit harrowing in attempting to get homes to close on time.  All three of them did so whi … continue reading

Two Men and a Cat

Early this morning I was abruptly startled while driving North on S. Carolina just past the stoplights. What should jump right out in front of me?  Two full grown deer!  If I were driving a little faster, I would’ve hit one of them.  I’ve known them to be in the River Heights area because they take cover along those abandoned railroad tracks … continue reading

A Kitchen Staircase

I completely forgot about telling everyone I had another very soft landing on the sale on one of my listings last week.  I’m going to remain confident the new owners will continue on with the home’s legacy of being a great place to raise a family.  The few previous owners, seemed to remain there for a very long time.  The quality of construc … continue reading

It was Her that made Me Look

Without question, I’d say this weekend was quite the zoom-zoom, and when it was all over I thought to myself, “Well, it always happens this way whenever you have specific time sensitive jobs to do, there’s always a fly or two in the ointment.”  I’m getting better at not being so rattled by it all and just continue to move forward as best … continue reading

Always Bites

In spite of appointments being set for the following day, when in real estate sales and property management, one never really knows what’s going to happen throughout the day due to phone calls, texts, e-mails, and walk-ins.  With that said, there’s an upside to having something new and different happening each day as well as hearing or seeing … continue reading

Out of Time Steppers

It stills seems as if we’re on the rim of breaking into Spring.  It’s sort of like we’re one foot in its door and the other still standing in late Winter.  This wind has been pounding on us far too long and I believe it’s time for Mother Nature to usher in real Spring.  Yes, the daffodils are blooming along with a few other early perenni … continue reading

Going Greener With Glass

With the real estate market now at full throttle, I’ve been diligent in keeping all my appointments in order and thankfully I haven’t missed one yet.  In finding more young first time buyers out these past weeks, I’ve been all the more helpful in getting them on the right track as far as what to look for in their first homes.  Later this af … continue reading

Bread and Butter

Yeow! This cold wind has been quite a reminder of a month or two past.  I was kiddingly telling one of my customers how if while wearing my long black overcoat today, had I spread my arms wide, I'd likely of started sailing off like a bat.  Speaking of bats.  I was in the basement of a vacant building most recently and had my breath nearly taken … continue reading

Happy Easter of 2016

Certainly everyone has had a great Easter Sunday between attending Paschal Services, getting together with family or friends, and possibly being invited to an Easter Egg Hunt and watching the sometimes comical searchings of the children.  I’m sure everyone’s been invited to Easter dinners having been prepared by someone close.  Yes, the memor … continue reading

The French Woman’s Lover

It’s absolutely amazing how we went from about four inches of heavy snow on the ground this morning to dry streets, sidewalks, and green grass.  I felt sorry for the Robins fluttering about as if they were out of their elements.  I wasn’t surprised to find the trees covered with ice this morning.  I was parked under a tall one this afternoon … continue reading
