Isn't it funny how every seller thinks there house is better than the one down the street? I guess it's the same feeling we all get when we are watching our kids perform or play sports. Our kids are the cutest, most talented and deserve more of the spotlight or playing time! If there was a fool proof way of getting Sellers to step back and be objective, I would love to know! Some sellers are motivated and think more objectively, others will argue until they are blue in the face even with no offers. I guess it all comes down to motivation and motivated buyers and sellers are easier to work with! This is another reason in my opinion, Buyers and Sellers should work with a knowledgeable Real Estate Agent. The old saying, "Can't see the forest for the trees..." Well, Full-time Professional agents are stomping through the forests all day every day and can tell you how big, climbable, shady and leafy your tree is compared to the others in your neck of the woods!

We know TN is the Volunteer State so maybe that's why my roots are deep in this area. I have the tendency to over-volunteer. Right now I'm trying to build my business, work on my real estate transactions, line up vendor booths for the Hendersonville Christmas Parade, get corporate sponsors for Jack Anderson Elementary School Carnival, support local charities and honestly I'm a little relieved my year of teaching 4 yr old's on Sunday mornings is now over. Did I mention I have 3 boys under the age of 8? I am thankful for all the relationships I've made over the years of being room mom and this and that...many of these connections have become clients which resulted in transactions...which has allowed me to pay for my family's Disney World trip coming up this Fall. The joy on my boys' faces will be worth all the ideas and business swarming in my head like a wind storm most days. I guess the bottom line is...Do what you love...give what you can...live to the fullest. Hendersonville was named as one of the top 10 cities in the United States for families in 2009. The Sumner County community made Family Circle Magazine's top 10 list. Cities were chosen based on affordable housing, good neighbors, green spaces and great public schools. The list examined cities with affordable housing, green space and schools. The magazine noted Hendersonville's friendly residents - who tend to look out for each other. "There is a neighborly affection in Hendersonville where we all look out for one another. We work for the common good and take tremendous pride in the city we all love," said Don Long, Director of Economic and Community Development.
