Consumers might feel Realtors are being a invasive during initial conversations about buying a house, but we have good reason to ask hard questions.  We ask "have you spoken with a lender?" but that's just the beginning.  It isn't enough to know that your debt to income ratio suggests you might w...
David Bowie is still a favorite musician of mine.  Back in the days of early MTV, I couldn't wait for one of his videos to come on.  There was always meaning in the story and he was famous for pushing the envelope. Since it came out I'll bet I've seen this a hundred times and still find it to be ...
  It's hard to believe that 10 years ago today I learned that I had passed the North Carolina Real Estate Exam and earned my real estate license. Happy Anniversay to Me!   Nothing about the class nor the tests was easy. It was difficult to go "back to school" after having been out of school for s...
I'll admit that I really didn't have a full picture of what the NC Cooperative Extension Service in Jackson County, NC did or how they affected the citizens.  I sort of got the idea that they would test soils for gardens and help people figure out how to get rid of certain pests.  The local radio...
Every morning this week there has been an appointment to get to early.  Prime posting time for me up until now has always been early but I can see I'll have to break out of that habit if I want consistent content! By blocking out some personal time this past Tuesday, I got to attend a class with ...
The past week or so has been filled with looking at listings that have uhmmm "matured" in the "Days on Market" category.  The buyers I'm working with are interested in houses with character and personality and while there is something to be said for brand new and probably worry free houses, they ...
Good Morning! When we as agents make referrals of friends, clients, leads or prospects to another agent many times the consumer doesn't really know how that all happens. A former client of ours is considering moving to Port Charlotte, FL and asked if I could suggest any agents in that area.  Why?...
We had an extraordinary light show in the mountains of Western North Carolina last night into the wee hours of the morning.  Facebook was crazy with local people reporting in with the storm locations. This morning the world looks like it was photoshopped in green, everything is so lush and the ga...
Not all buyers are alike.  Some are rigid in their tastes for style of home, or location, or amenities...sometimes rigid in everything and that's okay.  It helps to limit the field.  Some buyers can't be placed in a category with the exception possibly of price range and condition of home.  That'...
  It wasn't where we started but we did close yesterday. It can happen but it is pretty rare that a buyer selects the first house they see. Also, it can happen that a buyer will go under contract more than once before they finally close on a home...but thankfully that is rare also. We just got do...
