I love it when past clients reach out to me and we get to work together again! I’d been chatting with my sellers for over a year, strategically planning when to list their wonderful garden home I sold to them in 2011. 7 years ago they lived across the street in a 2 story home but wanted a single story so when this home came available we made an offer quickly!
After moving we readied their home across the street and went on market selling quickly. Now it’s time to move again! The drive back and forth twice a year to … (18 comments)

austin tx: Another Grandview Hills home SOLD by Dorie Dillard CB United - 06/07/18 08:29 AM
Closing Day was bittersweet! My sellers reached out to me because of a recommendation on Next Door and I’d just listed and sold a home in their community. They were original owners and needed help in coordinating vendors to do a makeover (it was seriously in need of updating). I helped them pick out granite, flooring, paint, light fixtures and hardware.
The home was transformed from ordinary to extraordinary! The crowning touch was the home staged by my favorite stager, Brian, with Brian David Design! He showcased the home so buyers would recognize the livability of the home and fall in love … (12 comments)

austin tx: Serendipity Sundays ~ A Scientist at work - 05/11/18 11:01 AM
Hudson’s class at the NW Montessori School held their annual Science Fair and what a sight to behold! I’m so impressed with their annual science program. Each child sets up with their own table and display (even wearing a white coat like a scientist) and parents and family travel from table to table to ask the children about their experiment. There was a list of questions to ask the scientists about their experiment and each child knew their experiment backwards and forwards!
Hudson’s experiment had to do with magnets and he illustrated his findings through magnetic cars. Hudson has a firm grasp … (18 comments)
