Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Properties

I love my home, and anytime I am away from it for a period of time, I can't wait to get back home.  My home was custom built to include everything I wanted. There is no bed like my mine, and I sleep better than anywhere, even the finest hotels.

I have a one story with no wasted space, designed for comfort, and entertaining.  My home office is fantastic, and is where my assistant and I work five days a week, she lives about ten minutes from me, but I walk a few feet, close my door, and my mood switches from the work day. 

It is situated on a private corner lot, and when I come home I know no one will ring my bell unless they have an appointment.

My clients, and other Realtors meet in my home office, and always say it is better than meeting at the larger main office.  I offer drinks or snacks when they have time. I offer my buyers bottles of my private label for champagne and wine.

At the end of the day I close my plantation shutters, put on my pajamas, turn on my television or listen to music.  The stresses of a busy day fade away, and it ME time.  

I live in a small quite neighborhood, and all the neighbors know each other. We have a tennis court and a gazebo where we can entertain as well as have get togethers with all the neighbors, at times bringing a pot luck dinner.

My home is the first home to be seen upon entering the neighborhood, and everyone always comments on my landscaping.

My grandkids love coming to spend the night, and we always make it a special time, unlike their own very busy homes when there is always something happening. 

These visits are great as it is just me and them. It is great having one on one time with them without any distractions.

I have a bistro room where I display my collection of Marilyn Merlot.  Standing in the corner is a red lady with a big black boa, and my collection of hats stands beside her.  I call her Ruby, and everyone entering my home for the first time goes there immediately.  I often sit there to have a glass of wine or drink my morning coffee.

The private patio is a haven where no one can see me, I can sit out there in my robe.  I listen to music, relax, and enjoy this my  place.

There is no place like my home sweet home.

Barbara - The love you have for your own home shines through, and I'm sure your clients appreciate the deep understanding and commitment it takes to turn a house into a home.  It involves a lot of effort, time and good old fashioned hard work to find the right house.  You're the perfect agent for Rockwell sellers and buyers!

Great features Barbara! I feel the same way about my home, I don't want to be away too long & would rather sleep in my own bed...

Elite sales team, home is the best place to be after a busy work day.

Peg, so true, I am always glad to be back home.

Norma, I do love my home and my home office where I work side by side five days a week, and clients and agents love coming to my home office rather than the big office.
