marianne howell wright: Winmore Chapel Hill - 01/28/11 03:24 AM

It's pretty easy to find all houses for sale on the Internet but not so easy to find out about the neighborhoods. I have had clients come to town in love with a home they saw on line and then be crushed because the neighborhood is not what they want at all. I hope my neighborhood videos help you see what our neighborhoods are really like.
Today we are going to take a tour of Winmore, a Carrboro neighborhood with a Chapel Hill address with my client Sharon. Sharon, her husband and son have lived in France for … (5 comments)

marianne howell wright: Builder Deposits in a New Home Neighborhood - 12/29/10 05:15 AM

Builder Deposits in a New Home Neighborhood The first step in buying a resale or building is the same,  meet with a lender and get pre-approved. The pre-approval is only as good as the information you provide your lender. It pays to be very through at this stage because you don't want expensive surprises later. Your lender will check your credit and review your income and debts to determine the loan amount you will be approved for and the loan options. You will discuss what is a comfortable payment for you, what cash you will need for a down payment, … (0 comments)

marianne howell wright: Southern Village, a favorite Chapel Hill neighborhood - 11/02/10 03:56 AM
Southern Village was developed in the early 90's and was a new concept for Chapel Hill. The plan was to build a "new old neighborhood" reminiscent of the way people lived in the early part of the 20th century. There would be a Main Street (now Market Street) with shops restaurants and small businesses. Homes would have front porches and alleys for the garages in back. The neighborhood would be quite dense with approximately 300 acres with 90 acres of that green space. There would be 1150 housing units consisting of single family homes, condos, town homes and apartments. This type … (0 comments)

marianne howell wright: Jordan Lake,Chatham County, NC - 08/04/10 11:39 AM
I had lived in Chapel Hill for years, driving over Jordan Lake many times, but not really knowing what is was like to be actually out on the lake. I didn't have a very good idea of how large the lake is and how much fun people were having in my own back yard until a friend took us out of their boat. I thought I would make this video to give you an idea of what one version of an afternoon on Jordan lake could be. It was a hot summer weekend day and our idea was just go out … (0 comments)

marianne howell wright: Personal Branding for the Business Professional - 02/05/10 12:21 AM
Chris Brogan has written this great e book about personal branding that I want to share. I've had it open on my desktop for three days now and have downloaded it but don't want to close the tab because I want to refer to it everyday. (I don't print much of anything anymore). I realized that a good way to keep it handy would be to send it to ActiveRain. Here is where you can get your own copy.
