So...like, lots of agents I've been pretty busy.  Buyers needing to see properties, contracts to write (yes!), new listings-paperwork for new listings-photos for new listings, and fielding phone calls.  Lots of phone calls from people "thinking" about listing their homes.  Digging a little deeper...

In my real estate area of Western North Carolina, I get my share of quirky and artistic listings. They are always interesting and so far, they've always been well built. The houses, like their owners have character and personality. The target audience is definitely not from the base of the pyrami...

Gardening can be seductive...a lot of work but really seductive.  Before I knew it, I was in for the ride of my life.  It started simply, a way to take control over some of the food that enters my body.  We studied how to do this, asked advice from any friend who'd ever turned a shovel of dirt, a...

"I have loved this house more than any other in my life", says the current owner. "The mountains can be seen through almost every window. There's a hot tub on our covered patio and the deck runs down the front and side of the house for great entertaining."   The houses that are the most pleasure ...

I'll admit that I really didn't have a full picture of what the NC Cooperative Extension Service in Jackson County, NC did or how they affected the citizens.  I sort of got the idea that they would test soils for gardens and help people figure out how to get rid of certain pests.  The local radio...

Every morning this week there has been an appointment to get to early.  Prime posting time for me up until now has always been early but I can see I'll have to break out of that habit if I want consistent content! By blocking out some personal time this past Tuesday, I got to attend a class with ...

The past week or so has been filled with looking at listings that have uhmmm "matured" in the "Days on Market" category.  The buyers I'm working with are interested in houses with character and personality and while there is something to be said for brand new and probably worry free houses, they ...

Sometimes it is good to just transport ourselves to another place mentally, even if only for a few minutes. We're grateful for a very good several months of real estate transactions but it sure has been a morass of details. The short sale that turned out to not have a right of way to the state ro...

Yes, that's right. I have a new girlfriend and she is a redhead. She already belongs to someone else though and they've been in a committed relationship for seven years.

   Yeah, that's right. Not all sellers are created equally. Fellow agents, you KNOW I'm telling the truth. There are just some sellers who deserve a higher return that others.   Of course, those would be the sellers who treated their homes like organic entities and went beyond simply mowing the y...

One of the first questions we ask new home buyers is "When would you like to be in your new home?". The first time I met Megan she told me "I'm not in a rush". Sometimes those words strike a mental shoulder slump in many Realtors and its hard to explain how some of us have an innate sense of seri...
