heber springs: A Favorite Thing - 07/30/09 04:09 AM
In the classic movie “The Sound of Music” Julie Andrews sings the oft-parodied "My Favorite Things". Personally, “raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens” don’t find a place on my list, but what I do identify with is the simplicity of the things named. We seem to strive for the grandiose, but it’s usually the simple things in life that bring us real joy.
One of “my favorite things” is a nearly daily occurrence on the Little Red River. It’s the river mist, a fog that forms almost daily throughout much of the year … (5 comments)

heber springs: Trout Fishing 101, The Little Red River, Heber Springs, Arkansas - 04/06/09 09:26 AM
One of the great things about being a real estate professional in a resort community is that there are times you can engage in outdoor recreation and still call it "work". As my colleague Howard Calhoun says, sometimes it’s like being a professional golfer.
This was one of those times.
We had been brainstorming about ways to provide useful information to people visiting our area and came up with the idea of doing a series on basic trout fishing techniques. Trout fishing on the Little Red River is something that I did with my dad from a young age. Now … (3 comments)

heber springs: Greers Ferry Lake: The "red line" explained - 03/19/09 01:33 PM
Normally in real estate, the term "red lining" is a bad thing. It refers to the practice of denying (or increasing the cost of) services to certain areas. The term originally came from the practice of marking a red line on a map to delineate areas where banks would not lend. However, the “red line” on water front property on Greers Ferry Lake is something different altogether.
Many people familiar with the US Army Corps of Engineers project known as Greers Ferry Lake understand the “white line”. It is the “fee taking line” where private property ends and the government … (4 comments)

heber springs: I played hooky today... - 02/07/08 09:51 AM
Well, I didn't completely skip work.  I worked from home with laptop and cell phone and actually made it to the office for a few hours late in the day.  But this morning we had snow.  I know, I know... you northerners don't see what the big deal is.  You think it's ridiculous that our schools shut down and everyone raids all the milk, bread, & eggs at the local grocery when we see a couple of flakes.  Maybe it is ridiculous.  But we don't usually get more than one or two snows a year... and you should see the looks … (71 comments)

heber springs: Greers Ferry Lake: The "White Line" - 06/15/07 08:09 AM

Shopping for lake front property on Greers Ferry Lake is often an educational process for buyers.  Commonly the first questions out of a buyer's mouth is, "What about installing a boat dock?" or, "Can I clear trees to open up the view of the lake?"  While there are a few properties around the lake that have private docks, they are by far the exception to the rule and the Corps of Engineers is unlikely to issue more permits in the future.  Also, a large number of lake homes do not actually have a view because of the trees and other vegetation … (1 comments)
