I wish I could tell you that I took this picture but I'm still trying to get a good picture of a bird in flight. This was taken by our daughter on a layover in Seattle. I find pictures like this so relaxing. __________________________________________________________________________________________________ If you are buying or relocating to Spring Texas or Tomball TXand need help from a professional REALTOR®, Marchel can be reached at Marchel@AgentwithResults.com or by phone at 832-721-8332.

De-clutter, De-clutter, De-clutter!! - 01/28/11 09:42 PM
The other day I showed the nicest staged home. It was not a big home at 1800 square feet but every room was staged to perfection. It made this home such a pleasure to show. Staging is becoming more popular all the time and is a wonderful way to show your home off to its best advantage. I do realize that not all sellers are going to want to have their home staged but even if you don’t pay a professional stager there are many things you can do yourself. As I was looking around this home one of the things (27 comments)
Why you need deed restrictions in Harris and Montgomery County! - 01/23/11 02:44 PM
It really boils down to 2 words and they are NO ZONING. When we moved here in 1997 and I was in real estate school I almost fell off my chair when I found out that Houston did not have zoning. It is especially apparent when you live in either unincorporated Harris County or unincorporated Montgomery County. If you are not in an area that has some deed restrictions it is a total free for all. Those subdivisions without restrictions have mobile homes, businesses, salvage yards, farm animals etc. You get the point! Since we don’t have zoning something that has (26 comments)
De-Clutter The Outside of your Refrigerator...before You list your house!!! - 01/21/11 10:10 PM
I have to admit I'm guilty of putting these magnet on my refrigerator. For years now we have got a magnet from every place we visit but I'm also not selling my home. I agree that when selling your home they need to be cleared off the refrigerator. A great place to buy the metal frame she talks about is from the container store by the way.

It has been quite some time since I have shared one of my daughter's pictures. I think she has a gift but I could be a bit prejudice. It seems like an appropriate picture for a winter night! __________________________________________________________________________________________________ If you are buying or relocating to Spring Texas or Tomball TXand need help from a professional REALTOR®, Marchel can be reached at Marchel@AgentwithResults.com or by phone at 832-721-8332.

As you can see Calvin is all boy! He was not sure why I was chasing him with the camera; that is why he is under the table in the second picture. As you can tell he was not very happy with me! He is a clean boy though as within 10 to 15 minutes those paws will be white again. Which is why I had to get the picture quick. _________________________________________________________________________________________________ If you are buying or relocating to Spring Texasand need help from a professional REALTOR®, Marchel can be reached at Marchel@AgentwithResults.com or by phone at 832-721-8332.

Don't forget the front door!! - 01/05/11 04:58 PM
I recently walked refrigerator calendars around my neighborhood and I was AMAZED at the difference I saw in front doors. In my neighborhood the homes were built between 1997 and 2003 so if a door has not been refinished it probably should have been. I was leaving my calendars on front doors so you could say I had a bird's eye view of my neighbor's front doors. I saw some doors that had been replaced, some that had been refurbished, others that had been recently painted and I saw a bunch of doors that looked like no one had touched them (53 comments)
