advanced real estate company: Back in the saddle - 01/04/09 03:19 AM
Logging in  to my AR account, I am shocked that my last blog entry was back in September! 

 I am saddened by my lack of commitment to blogging and then I realize that I am committed to so many things that it is dumb to beat myself up about it.  I have been so busy trying to keep a company alive, selling real estate, being a single mom, and trying to get healthy, that something had to give.  So last month I decided to sell my company.  It was a gut wrenching decision that looking back on,  I do not regret.  At … (3 comments)

advanced real estate company: Please help Steve Brown - 09/26/08 03:21 AM
I received a gut wrenching email today regarding Steve Brown's catering business.  As I am sure most businesses are, Steve is feeling the pinch of the economy.  As one of my friends, Connie Hipp says, "If Steve had back a 10th of what he gives to the community the business would be just fine. He continues to give with a very big heart." 
Please help spread the word if you can.

advanced real estate company: What's Happening in the Beaufort SC Real Estate Market - 09/16/08 08:21 AM
Talking with another real estate broker yesterday, I heard the broker say "the phones have been kind of quiet, showings have slowed and buyers have apparently disappeared."   I looked at recent sales in Beaufort from August 1-today. 
I looked at residential homes in Beaufort, Mossy Oaks, Port Royal, Burton, Lady's Island, St. Helena, Dataw Island, Fripp Island, Harbor Island, Northern Beaufort County, and Jasper County including Ridgeland.  71 homes in 6 weeks isn't much to talk about, but it could be much worse.  We live in a community of about 45,000 people.  The great thing we do have is that we … (1 comments)

advanced real estate company: Beaufort, SC-A hidden gem along the coast voted one of the best retirement communities on the water. - 09/16/08 06:55 AM
Great, thanks to Money Magazine, everyone now knows what I do!  Beaufort was recently one of 6 of the best places to retire.  I am not near retirement age, but I certainly chose Beaufort for many of the same reasons talked about in the article. Read the article here.  
We are surrounded by so many types of water, the ocean, the marsh, the river, and the Intercoastal Waterway.  We are a boater's paradise, which is how many of our visitors find us on one of their coastal trips up the ICW.  Others stop along the way and hang out on one of our many sandbars for … (0 comments)

advanced real estate company: Shrimp Festival is coming October 3-4th. - 09/16/08 06:20 AM
It is that time again, when thousands converge upon Beaufort to get a little something we might take for granted-SHRIMP!  Every year the Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce put on a great time over two days filled with shrimp boats, entertainment, vendors, shopping, restaurants eager to test their shrimp recipes, as well as a 5K run/walk.  This year, Advanced Real Estate Company is a jumbo shrimp festival sponsor again. 
Last year we had a money booth.  You know the kind where you step into a booth for a certain amount of time and try to catch as much money as you … (0 comments)

advanced real estate company: Is the market in Northern Beaufort County dead or barely breathing? - 05/05/08 06:09 AM
Is the market in Northern Beaufort County dead or barely breathing?  I say it is alive and stable.  In many parts of the country and even in the low country, there are those that say the real estate market is horrible and nothing is selling.  We are very fortunate that Beaufort is a destination and that we do not only rely on the military or one industry to buy homes.  We have military buyers, but we also have retirees or second home purchasers.  We have professionals, we have medical personnel, and we have students.  All of these types of buyers contribute … (4 comments)

advanced real estate company: A week long client, Easter, a child's birthday and out of town guests. - 03/27/08 09:27 PM
I woke up this morning a little disappointed in myself because I have not been able to post as regularly as I would like and feeling a little guilty because I know I should.  So, as I think about what topic I would like to write about this morning all I could come up with is what I have been consumed with for 2 weeks.  First, I had wonderful clients from Cincinnati Ohio that were looking for waterfront property.  We spent 4 great days together but I can honestly say I think I have seen every piece of waterfront property priced between … (6 comments)

advanced real estate company: Cherimie's Got "it" - 03/12/08 03:01 AM
As the owner of a real estate company, it is often hard to recruit agents who you know have 'it".  I was truly blessed the day Cherimie came into my life.  She is one of those agents who I envisioned when I thought about opening my own company.  She is beyond professional, she has an amazing work ethic and quite frankly, I am proud to have her representing my company.  It cracks me up that I turned Cherimie on to Active Rain, but little did I know that she would take Active Rain and run far and wide.  I also didn't know how … (4 comments)
