magnolia forest pearl river louisiana homes for sale: Another reason to Buy a Home in Pearl River - 10/15/11 02:11 AM
Fall is by far my favorite time of the year in Southeastern Louisiana.  The weather is finally cooling down after a long hot summer and the threat of hurricanes season is also behind us.  Plus the fishing will only get better now through January.  Also it's football season and my LSU Tigers are ranked number 1 and the Saints aren't too shabby either.
I decided to share a picture of one of several redfish we caught yesterday.  Man what a day to be alive and on the water.  These fish were caught in the marsh near the Pearl River.

magnolia forest pearl river louisiana homes for sale: Tax Credit Deadline Looming | Slidell Real Estate for Sale - 04/22/10 01:59 PM
The first time home buyers tax credit ends in eight days.  I can't help but wonder if the housing market can grow legs or will it need another government crutch.  The banks seem to be moving foreclosures to the fore front instead of stalling on them.  Will contracts dry up after the end of the month?  Will home prices drop further without the demand being pulled forward?  I for one don't really know.  I guess we will have to stay tuned?

magnolia forest pearl river louisiana homes for sale: Report Chinese Drywall - 12/07/09 11:34 AM
Seems many unfortunate victims of hurricane Katrina are victims of tainted Chinese drywall in their homes.  There also are many who built new homes that are also victims.  The Louisiana Recovery Fund wants all homeowners who know or suspect they have tainted drywall to call them.  So far only 415 homeowners have reported dry wall problems.  The state is sure it is much higher.  They need the numbers to get remediation money from the Federal government.  The number is 1-866-684-1713.  For more information click on the following link.  WWl-TV report on Chinese drywall.

Once again this year Xerox is sponsoring the Lets Say Thankscampaign to send Christmas cards to our serviceman and women serving overseas this year.  Whether you support the war or not shouldn't be an issue with trying to brighten their day a little.  While we get to live our life and spend the Holidays with our family we tend to forget the sacrifice's of others.  I have already sent several cards.  It takes about one minute.  I also checked it out with Snopes and found out it is legit.

Looking for a clear explanation on the existing homeowners who sell and buy this year.  Is there a date this year that applies or is it for the whole year?  I understand the first time buyers credit and have benefited from it.  I just want some clarification from someone who understands the new law better than I.  Thanks for your time fellow AR's.

magnolia forest pearl river louisiana homes for sale: Full Time Realtor - 11/02/09 07:06 AM
It's early August and traffic in my home is hot and heavy.  I guess first time buyers seeking that $8,000 payday from Uncle Sam.  We accepted an offer from an agent who's card stated in big bold letters at the top FULL TIME REALTOR.  OK I'm impressed, really you got my attention.
What else got my attention was the Hawaiian shirt you were wearing.  Looking kind of casual today are we?  I am the first person to tell you neck ties suck.  But neck tie withholding, one can still look more professional than this.  I think he just left the country club … (6 comments)

This house located in Yester Oaks subdivision of Slidell Louisiana was sold yesterday to a lovely young couple getting married in two weeks.  I hope they enjoy the home as much as the previous owners did.
This home was under contract in a little over sixty days and sold in three months time.  Sure makes my job easier when the home is well maintained.
Looking to buy or sell in Slidell, Pearl River or Lacombe give me a buzz.

magnolia forest pearl river louisiana homes for sale: Guess What? Another Government Planned That Doesn't Work in the Real World - 10/16/09 07:50 AM
I have attached an article from the Wall Street Journal online version detailing the happenings in the home finance debacle over the past few years.  It goes into some detail about the government and it's departments involvement in financing for those who really couldn't afford a home but should have one any way.  Our press ignores all of this at their own peril.  I guess they fell they will be excluded from anything that happens in the real world.  Why else would they not cover and reveal the truth.  I hope many of you read this article.  The real problem in my … (2 comments)

Here i was enjoying a day of fishing finally.  After moving twice in the past two weeks I had a day to relax and enjoy life a little.  Wouldn't you know it, the appraiser calls on a home I have under contract.  Her wants to go this morning at nine o'clock.  I have to tell him the owners don't want anyone in their house without them or myself present.  He insists that it has to be this morning.  I asked him why he didn't call me last night so i could change my plans.  He doesn't have an answer.
