Dog Days of Summer - Lake Style

 

I do a lot of business around the lake and one particular network of friends/clients is rather extensive - when one moves, they all tend to follow. I love hosting house-warming parties and this particular crew is so much fun! It seems we are celebrating someones birthday or someones new home a few times each year and honestly, some of the best times Ray and I have had together, have been with these crazy folks. 

 

A day at the lake - Lake Wylie Real Estate

 

This end-of-summer bash brought a special group together once again - coincidentally, all but, two of the couples actually sold their lake homes and purchased new ones this year. They are nestled on amazing lots all down the Catawba River/Lake Wylie and all bought homes with stunning lake views. One couple, in particular, purchased a home that needed a lot of updating done but, they bought early enough in the year to be able to complete the work with some lake season time left on the calendar! 

 

Cooling off in the Lake"Let's go for a doggie paddle and cool our paws off!"

 

The one thing they did not need to improve upon was their dock - it was in immaculate shape (just redone by the former owners) and ready to go. They parked their boat and set to work on their new home. It is now gorgeous and what an opportune time to host a housewarming party - during the dog days of summer!

 

How about let's go boating!"Now, this is the life- MY life! Yep, I am one lucky dog."

 

As it happens, this challenge that Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS 602-380-4886 is hosting this month, reminded me of just this group. So, perfect timing all around. Our housewarming gathering also included the 'lake dogs!' They are always in-tow and always enjoy each others company, just as we humans in the group do one another. 

 

Me & my human - we're just too pooped to pop!"Me & my human - we're just too pooped to pop!"

 

The furry guests and their humans enjoyed their time last night as they celebrated home-ownership...together, at the lake!

 

Yes, we fur babies enjoy our sunsets too!

"You bet, we fur babies enjoy our sunsets too!"

They are all amazing - humans and fur babies, Michael Jacobs - and yes, many of them won some fabulous lake views this year! I feel like I'm a winner too - being able to serve all of them.  😉

We have SO many shots of that baby! In fact, she sent me a cute shot of her by my sign at their last house - SO cute, Sharon Lee.

Well, thank you, my brother! I haven't been around much lately either - it's getting tougher by the day but, hey, we'll all be back, playing in the Rain and catch up soon!

I am, James Dray! Tomorrow I will be getting my gas cans filled for the generator. Otherwise, because I have been traveling back and forth to Denver so much, I have all of my pet 'stuff' in one easy-to-grab spot (for the house-sitters) and everything else can and will be ready at a moment's notice.

Good Morning, Barbara Todaro! Oh my gosh, these clients keep grabbing the best lake lots and I keep looking for one for me! LOL Seriously, this one is one of my favorites for the views and to have those sunsets each day...well, there's a little touch of heaven there!

About those signs - our office doesn't require the office number be on the sign, just the name. So, I put one of my assistants numbers and mine on each sign. We do still get sign calls and in fact, just Closed on one from the sign in the picture above! They didn't buy my listing but, they bought another one in that neighborhood.

Nice photos. Your dogs look like they love to pose. Been so long since I have been at a lake...think it was those camp days, way back when. What a wonderful lifestyle to enjoy with you family, friends... and clients.
