Home is where the heart is - 12/26/11 07:43 AM
Like many of you, I am a transplant. I moved to Northeast Tennessee in 1995 and have made it my home. I have raised my daughter here and bought three homes over the years. My daughter knows no other region to call home. So, when people ask me where home is, I tell them Northeast Tennessee. So what about when people ask me where I'm from? That is a completely different question. I'm from Ann Arbor, Michigan. I'm actually driving there today, today, I'm driving home. Today, that is where my heart is. So, hence the title, my home is where (6 comments)

Santa brought her the hanging basket she wanted, and the leather boots. mama got her wind chimes she had been dreaming about for months. It was a wonderful morning. believe it or not, the dogs were up and running around earlier than we were! They also knew today was a special day. With that said, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Years to you! (7 comments)
Christmas tree lights - 12/24/11 12:01 PM
I just heard a really interesting story about lighting of the Christmas Tree. It dates back to the 1600's and, of course, they were lit with candles. Due to the extreme danger of having a lit Christmas Tree in your house (by candles) it was only allowed to be lit for one hour on Christmas Eve. The other interesting tidbit is that one person was assigned to light the tree. I love this! Merry Christmas! (7 comments)
So you say you want mountain views? - 12/23/11 06:43 AM
Northeast Tennessee is known for their Mountain views. Mountain views are fabulous, but with mountain views, usually comes hills, steep driveways and graveled back roads. You will also have property looking over 360 degree views of beauty and serenity all around. So how do you get the perfect balance between the two? It's not always that easy. I have found that living in Northeast Tennessee throws these exact challenges at us when house hunting in the Northeast Tennessee. So the new buyers to this area must keep this in mind when out shopping for homes. When you find that perfect home, you must also check (8 comments)
December Challenge:it's Week 3 Post 2 - 12/20/11 07:32 AM
I cannot believe we are less then a week from Christmas. That went fast. Seems like just yesterday I was doing post 1 of week 1. I have really been pushed with this challenge and got quite a bit done. More than what I've recorded. Today I am going through my leads for the past 6 months that have not done anything. I will call everyone of them and update their status. Who knows, maybe a couple of them are ready to make the move. (7 comments)

Fannie Mae, VA, FHA...get on the same page please. - 12/15/11 10:49 AM
Are you kidding me? I have a VA contract that is also a Fannie Mae property. I have had to change the wording three times to make everyone happy. The agent wrote it up as," Seller to pay up to 6% in closing costs and pre paids" . Fannie Mae came back and say's it must read as follows, "Seller to pay up to $9000.00 in buyers pre paids, title and closing costs". We are two days away from closing and VA comes back and say's it must read, " Seller to pay up to 6% towards closing costs , pre-paids (2 comments)

Tonight we had a fund raiser for Susan G Komen foundation. We had thousands of beads donated, along with instruction from Gail Oliver, RE/MAX Checkmate.

This is the second time Gail has teamed up with SELLabrate Real Estate Team to offer her time and beads to the great cause to help find a cure to breast cancer.

Saturday football was great! - 12/04/11 10:00 AM
What a way to end the season! There were some really terrific games going on yesterday, including some pretty wild upsets. My favorite game was the Michigan State vs Wisconsin game. I was pulling for State, only because they are in the same division as Michigan and I wanted the "Legends" to beat the "Leaders" in this inaugural game. What a game! It came down to the last 2 minutes. Wisconsin came out on top and won 42-39. I will now root on Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl against Oregon. (Once again, must support Big 10- Michigan). The other entertaining game (6 comments)
