Drive bys...Are you guilty of it? - 11/30/08 05:05 PM
This is a topic I haven't come across yet in my ActiveRain endeavors. Let me set the scene: You get a call that an agent wants to bring his clients to see one of your listings. GREAT! You immediately contact your clients to let them know when the other agent wants to show their home. Now, if your clients are like most, some work has to be done to get the house in showing condition because sometimes you'll get the call the night before but most of the time you get it 1 hour before they want to arrive. Now, (26 comments)
Tony Tours the Town - Due Amici Pizza - Charlotte NC - 11/29/08 09:17 AM
After a fun filled afternoon at the Nascar Speed Park we worked up an appetite. I called the wife and asked her what we should pick up for dinner. She said, " Due Amici's, of course"! Due Amici is located at 5346 A Prosperity Church Road, Charlotte, in the Bi-Lo shopping center. , I know, that's not Concord! Their food is so good, I had to blog about it. Due Amici has all kinds of Italian food ranging from pizza with all kinds of toppings to eggplant parmagian. Now, I'm not a big fan of eggplant, but their's is delicious! They sell Italian (6 comments)
Tony Tours the Town - NASCAR Speed Park - Concord NC - 11/28/08 09:41 PM
It's Friday and my brother is going back to NJ tomorrow. We promised the kids a day at Nascar Speed Park and that's just what we did. Nascar Speed Park is located in Concord Mills Mall across from Lowes Home store on Speedway Boulevard.
Upon entering, you are greeted by a store of Nascar memorabilia and souvenirs. Further back is a large arcade. That was our first pit stop (pun intended). After several games of Skeet ball, Donkey Kong, and wall climbing we were revved up (there's that pun thing again) for the fast cars!
This mall has it all. You can shop, eat, play, even take in a movie. My brother and his daughter are visiting here from NJ for Thanksgiving. We decided to go out to lunch and I figured Concord Mills would be a fun place for us to take our kids to. The food court there is huge with plenty of choices of food...to satisfy anyone's palette.
The kind of food you can get (4 comments)
TONY TOURS THE TOWN - THE CONCORD NC CHRONICLES - IHOP - First Installment - 11/25/08 05:07 PM
When we first moved to North Carolina, we settled in Concord. After about three years, we gave Cornelius a try. Still later, we put down roots in Huntersville. In spite of living in all these different places, Concord remains near and dear to my heart. That's why I decided to start a campaign for Concord. Every time I frequent a restaurant, movie theatre, park, etc, I will write a blog about it. My hope is that people from other parts of the country will read it and know how special Concord NC is. Attached is the very first inststallment of my (6 comments)
Concord NC Realtor and the Concord NC Christmas Parade - 11/23/08 08:15 PM
I LOVE A PARADE !! Especially a Concord NC Christmas Parade Concord, NC had its annual Christmas parade on November 22, 2008. Spectators lined both sides of Union Street to watch floats, cars, trucks, and paraders on foot march their way down the heart of the city. My wife, two daughters and I found an old tree whose roots were so large and protruding out of the ground that it made for a ringside seat for us to sit on while we watched and enjoyed the festivities. Some homeowners had tables set up outside their homes with food and drink aplenty. (2 comments)
Is it just me, or is the holiday season starting earlier and earlier each year? I couldn't believe it. The day after Halloween, I turned on my car radio and heard a Christmas song for the first time this season! Come on people, Thanksgiving hasn't even passed yet. I have a love/hate relationship with the holidays. I hate the hustle and bustle, but love the spirit that the season brings. Many home sellers view the holiday season with dread. Some actually withdraw their listings until after the New Year, (8 comments)
RELOCATION - RELOCATION - RELOCATION to Concord NC/Charlotte area - 11/15/08 04:06 PM
Hi everyone! Being new to Active Rain, I am still finding my way around this great service provided to us all. I thought I'd take this opportunity to post and market myself a little bit. Todays blog will be about, yes, you guessed it!...Relocation. First off, a little about myself. My family and I relocated here in 2001 from New York. My wife had the chance to transfer with the company she works for and we took it. So I quit my job of 7 years, uprooted our 7 year old son from all he knew, packed up our little girls and moved to (7 comments)
