I received a request from my web site telling me the family was relocating from London and wanted to buy a house from me.  Only a few items get filled in on the forms and I quickly answered by email saying I'd be happy to help them relocate.  Today I have received the following email fr...
SOLD   SOLD SOLD SOLD SOLD!!So very many people love the country.  Searcy AR is surrounded with lovely country areas.  Most popular is probably the area to the North and to the West.  This small house is a foreclosure property.  It had some eager persons trying to fix it up and they either ran o...
I have heard of pole barns all my life but never truly understood what they were.  Were they built of poles entirely?  Did someone cut down that many trees?  I have a new listing that probably has a pole barn.  It actually is tin on the top and sides with poles on the inside holding it up.  So th...

My real estate career has been a long one but I must admit that I learned something about my county, city and state that I didn't know;  and I didn't learn it until probably 5 or 6 years ago.  We have a monthly meeting and invite a guest to speak.  This particular meeting had a guest from the cou...
I know that all states are different with contracts but probably all law is basically the same.  In Arkansas we have a 10 page contract for making an offer.  One page is all about inspections.  It tells how the buyer has the right to hire a home inspector or do the inspection himself and make sur...
We all have the desire to be charitable and we all have our feelings about which charity is best to choose. I had one favorite charity that I'd given to for years and years on a monthly basis but when I visited this web site I found that it was rated very poorly.....i...
