beam and branch realty: Historic Renovation ~ Granbury, Texas - 02/25/21 03:26 PM
Granbury, Texas is a quaint, historic town southwest of Fort Worth. Winding through the town is the Brazos River that creates our playground, Lake Granbury. At the heart of town is the beautiful and iconic town Square.
My husband and I purchased our first building on the Square two years ago and lovingly restored it where our real estate office, Beam & Branch Realty calls home. We love being on the Square and being a part of this vibrant community. So much so, we decided to purchase another building and closed on it yesterday!
122 N. Crockett is our new project that we … (15 comments)

beam and branch realty: Run to the Roar ~ Company Theme 2021 - 02/03/21 05:57 PM
Last week, I took my agents away from the office for our annual one-day retreat. The purpose of our retreat is to focus on our goals for the year, collaborate with one another, and take a breath from our daily routine to make some plans. Each year, I choose a book and a theme that will be our mantra.
This year, I chose the book, "Chase the Lion" by Mark Batterson. This power-packed book offers great inspiration to dream big and to get after those dreams. A great read causing you to determine if your dreams are big enough to scare you.

My husband Mark and I purchased a 12.9-acre tract of land just three blocks north of our historic town square here in Granbury, Texas almost 4 years ago. When we spotted this tract of land, we knew it was something special. Being walking distance to the Square, we saw the potential for this little tract.
Yesterday, we successfully closed the tract after working with a developer out of the Metroplex for over a year. We are busting at the seams about this new housing development. It will feature 69, front-porch series homes in a gated neighborhood. The price point will be in … (9 comments)

beam and branch realty: Preparing the Soil for Sales - 08/05/20 07:26 PM
Seeking to find new listings requires some planning, strategy, and a lot of hard work. Many new agents believe if they just hold their beak out just right, some listings might just drop from the sky.
Those of us who have been in the dirt of the business for a while know that procuring listings consistently requires intentional skills with specific marketing strategies. Preparation is essential if you desire to beef up your listing game. Just as a garden requires great planning and care in order to reap a bounty, listing agents must also plan so they can experience the harvest.

Beam & Branch Realty ~ Farm & Ranch
Farm and ranch real estate is a very specialized discipline that requires knowledge, experience, and specialized skills. In order to navigate the various nuances in farm and ranch properties, it is important to understand the various types of situations that arise from these types of sales. Farm and ranch real estate is entirely different from residential sales.
Understanding soil types, fencing, topography, crops, animal ratios, drainage, water needs, infrastructure, prevailing winds, minerals, along with many other issues are just some of the topics that are discussed with these types of properties. Agents must have a thorough … (2 comments)

Lipstick on a Pig ~ Remodeling Woes
In this remodeling and HGTV awakening era, as real estate agents, we've all seen the great updates as well as the examples of what NOT to do! Recently, I was showing my son who is hoping to be a first time home buyer some remodeled homes in the Houston area. Due to the flooding Houston has experienced, currently there are hundreds of remodeled and updated homes on the market.
In viewing homes all over the Houston area, it became obvious very quickly the differences in quality, versus lipstick on a pig jobs. While most of these homes had crisp, new colors on … (24 comments)

Bring in a few fall-colored throws to accent chairs and sofas. Even placing a few fall throws in a basket in the corner add instant warmth … (8 comments)

GRI - Let Me Tell You Why!
Graduate_realtor_institute, the designation many real estate agents aspire to achieve. Why is this? First of all, the dedication and time commitment in order to earn the designation is intensive. Agents who put in the time to complete all three of the modules, have invested valuable time in order to complete the requirements.
No matter how long an agent has been in the business, continuing education, working on designations and certifications is something that should never cease. This business of real estate is ever-changing and therefore, requiring those who practice in this field, continue to learn all they … (14 comments)
