The great outdoors...aka the backyard! - 06/30/11 06:51 AM
If you haven't heard me say it you might be the last person on earth (or at least Active Rain) hearing it. I tell everyone that will listen. I love summer! M. and I have a sort of 'close to home' life. Her business takes up a lot time especially in the summer months. My time is spent on real estate, as in yard work for our properties in addition to working with clients. Since that makes it a challenge to get away while it's warm years ago we decided to put together this little pool scene in the side (23 comments)
It's summer. Need a lifeguard? - 06/27/11 03:06 PM
Working in our industry means working everyday with people that are in the currents of change. In terms of experience some are Olympic quality swimmers, some are barely able to dog paddle. Some move as if they are falling without a parachute, some are highly trained skydivers by comparison. But they are in it and Realtors are leading the way through! Some buyers and sellers are timid and shy, some are bold and brash. We see it all. Realtors quickly recognize their stlye, and needs. Every once in a while we meet a person who has big dreams or immediate needs of change yet they stand precariously on the edge of change, gripping (25 comments)
WWDD? What would Dad do? - 06/19/11 10:58 PM
WWDD? What Would Dad Do? Happy Father's Day friends. I cannot let the day pass without paying tribute to my Dad. Thank you Dad, for being just the person I needed you to be. Dad is a person that has devoted his life to improving the lives of others. He chose long ago to live by the tenets of his faith in God. Those tenets have defined him, not confined him. His faith has often been tried and tested and I can tell you it is unwavering. He loves and cares for the people around him. He is much more concerned with the (23 comments)
Sellers: Time to list? Avoid mixed messages! - 06/16/11 10:43 AM
When it is time to list a property there is one thing I make clear to sellers. NO MIXED MESSAGES! It sounds simple but somehow it is not always. Does everything about your plan say YES! I REALLY want to sell in a reasonable number of days. Yes I said days, not months and certainly not years! Selling takes a real life, carefully planned strategy. Have you done the proper maintenance inside and out? Is your home looking SHARP all over. Don't forget the check list: the yard and the garage, fresh paint, clean carpets, no trace of pet damage or odor, etc. (87 comments)
Keep Your Bentonville, AR Home Search in Balance - 06/06/11 09:56 AM
I spent the day Saturday looking at 12 homes with a couple of very savvy potential buyers. It was a PLEASURE! We communicated by phone and email before meeting in person Saturday. The buyers knew their price range, they knew their list of 'must haves'. They knew for certain where they wanted to be, based on proximity to work. Perhaps most importantly they had studied the inventory thoroughly, comparing specific amenities. Their priorities were clear, location, condition, age, amenities, price. Sounds perfect right? Well almost. Even after doing that much homework, questions still remain for home buyers. Questions about how to keep (22 comments)
Check out these big, bold and beautiful Moon Vines, yes they are from my yard. These babies only bloom after sunset. I think you'll agree that they put on quite a show. The blossoms are amazingly delicate and the crispest of white. Are you moving to Bentonville, AR ? Got a green thumb and anticpating what to put in your yard?
