Simpsonville South Carolina is a great town.  It's got many of the amenities of a large city, but it has a small town atmosphere.  For instance, you can go down to Barefoot Annie's coffee shop on SE Main Street and enjoy a laid-back session with a local musician, or you can go walking on Main Str...

The best real estate decision I ever personally made was to purchase a home with a screened porch.  In Upstate South Carolina, our climate is very mild most of the time, making a screened porch ideal.  For about nine months out of the year I use the porch.  It's great to have quiet talks on, enjo...

The International Center for Automotive Research (ICAR) is doing great things for the Greenville, South Carolina economy.  As this project unfurls, it is bringing more and more engineering jobs, management jobs, and other high paying work to the Upstate.  Estimates have stated as many as 20,000 n...

As a closet techno-geek, I admittedly was far behind when it came to my cell phone.  I had an old phone whose best feature was the fact that it could actually take pictures (ooooooh).  I try not to be wasteful, so as long as the phone worked for me, I kept it.  Soon after I got the phone, this fu...

I just got back from the Greenville Little Theatre production of "There Goes The Bride!"  It's HILARIOUS.  I've never laughed so hard at a GLT production before, and I've gone to them all for the last six or seven years (well, either attended or performed *Grin*).The cast is made up of some of th...

Perhaps I'm biased.  No, scratch that, I'm definitely biased... but if you're looking for a great place to live, then you may want to check out the Simpsonville SC Real Estate Market!  Our town of Simpsonville (Simple-ville to residents) has grown by leaps and bounds, and yet has not lost it's la...

...and you're the agent who shows up to check it out.  Hmm... perhaps a poor choice of words.  Our Greater Greenville Association of REALTORS(R) recently sent out a warning about a gentleman (I use the term loosely) in a subdivision in Simpsonville who calls up female agents, tells them he is thi...

I'll be the first one to admit that I am not a work-a-holic.  Oh, don't get me wrong - if you poll the people in my office, or if you ask my family, they'll tell you that I'm the guy who is up on the computer at midnight sending emails, or at the office until the wee hours working on this project...
