sellers: Tax value $1,027,570 List price $310,365- What? - 08/03/10 11:18 AM
This past weekend I was out with a buyer who has been preapproved up to $350,000. Our real estate team set them up a search last week and they narrowed the over 150 homes to a list of 7. Some were not in the right area, some were to small, some had vinyl siding and some were just not their style. I am most happy when a buyer takes homes off of their list because that makes it easier for me to determine what they find most important in their next home.
Ok, back to the topic of this post. … (4 comments)

sellers: I need new business cards - 07/31/10 02:49 PM
It is kind of ironic that my friends at 210 Consulting are doing a contest with the prize of Free Business Cards. I have been playing around with making a new business card for almost 2 weeks now. I sent a copy of what I wanted to use to my best buddy David Patterson told me that I needed to go back to the drawing board and make sure it had my picture somewhere on it. I now have the card 90% complete so free cards would be fabulous.
Ok, so now onto what I am actually supposed to be blogging about. Do I love or … (7 comments)

sellers: Just one more reason I love my job - 07/29/10 04:09 PM
Today was a special day for me. I love taking out buyers to find the perfect home. I am ecstatic when a seller gets to close on their home. I love it when I get a call from a fellow agent with a referral. It is a special day when I get a call from a past client telling me that they are having a baby and they need to sell to be able to afford a bigger house for their growing family.
Those days are special for many reasons, but today was not one of those days. I was privileged … (5 comments)

I made my 5 year old daughter a promise this morning that so far I have been able to keep. I can tell you another thing, this school year has snuck up and started on your Union county, NCreal estate agent. Yesterday I was running around making sure that my Kindergarten-er had everything to start school because she started TODAY!

Starting Kindergarten is a huge step for kiddos.  They will meet lots of new friends, be in a different environment and have a whole new set of rules. What can we do as parents to help them prepare for this … (8 comments)

sellers: Was it worth the wait Fieldstone Farm? - 07/22/10 07:15 AM

Almost 3 years ago our real estate team started showing clients homes that were being built in the brand new community Fieldstone Farm in Indian Trail, NC. At that time the sales agents were promisin that a Resident's Club with full ammenities would be built during the summer. The buyers were all so excited about the pending clubhouse and all the ammenities that were going to be there too.

Up until the last 3 weeks the above picture was just that sign on a vacant lot. The Resident's Club opened less than a month ago with a full clubhouse … (2 comments)

sellers: Was it worth the wait Fieldstone Farm? - 07/22/10 04:15 AM
I started having clients buy in Fieldstone Farm in Indian Trail, NC over 2 years ago. The first homes were built with huge promises of a wonderful Resident's Club being built that very Summer. Well here it is 2 years later and the ammenities are all in! Was it worth the wait? I would have to answer that question with a resounding YES!
 For the last two plus years the only thing that you saw when you drove into Fieldstone Farm was a parking lot and a sign of a coming soon Residents Club, then slowly during that time a soccer … (1 comments)

I am sure that if you yourself has not had braces you know at least 10 people who had the lovely things in their mouth for an extended period of time. All the kids have then and now even lots of adults are getting them too.
Yesterday our 11 year old had to go get his spacers, next week come the actual braces.

sellers: Your Waxhaw real estate agent really wants and Ipad, but has concerns - 07/17/10 05:28 PM
Your Waxhaw area real estate agent really wants an Ipad. Does anyone have any advice on using it with the following websites:
Tempo5- our local MLS just went to Tempo 5 and I am wondering how this program works on the Ipad.
TopProducer- does anyone use this database system on their Ipad
Youtube and editing video blogs
Any advice would be fabulous! Any suggestions or personal usage would be helpful.
I have been wanting one of these and have played with several of my fellow agents and I really think it would benefit.

sellers: Carpets so clean your Monroe real estate team could sleep on them! - 07/08/10 08:57 AM
Really, carpets so clean you could even eat or sleep on them is the result that your Monroe real estate team gets when our clients use RIC Residential and Industrial Cleaning Company.
This week we had a seller who had a need for some carpet, rug and upholstery cleaning. Team Ludlow has been referring both buyers and sellers to RIC for a while and has never had anything other than extremely happy clients. The call was made to RIC on Thursday about the rugs and that afternoon the guys came in their van to get them. They took off for the … (0 comments)
