Hello From Huntsville, AL !

Real Estate Agent with Craig LaMar, Real Estate Consultant

Hi. My name is Craig and I am a Newbie ; )  Since 1991 I have been helping Families and Individuals Reconnect to their new Home & Neighborhood in the beautiful TN Valley area. It's always taken a "team effort", and Helen, my wife of 30+ years is still here by my side. Remarkable, huh? (That's us in front of the hearth room fireplace at Christmas...one of my favorite holidays).

Prior to announcing to her one day that I was taking my real estate exam and getting out of the corporate "rat race", we were moving all across the country... almost 20 years of new faces in new places. Everyone said "You could write a book!". In a way, that's what we did do. We wrote a book....well, actually a system based on the experiences we went through. We included all the great things and the memorable things that REALTORS had done for us over the years, as well as a few things we wished they had done. That became the remarkable Craig LaMar Real Estate System that helps me to serve others who are going through the "relocation" experience.

Over the years we have created a social network of relationships through personalized services delivered with a servant's heart by remarkable people (myself, Helen, our son Steven who is the Buyer Specialist, Joan Nash our "virtual" Client Care Specialist and the Albrights our Client Services Specialist) to remarkable clients, customers, friends and family who support us with their repeat business and by referring others whom they think will appreciate the level of services we provide. And now that I mentioned referrals, remember we always have time for anyone you may refer to me. We will take great care of them for you!

Thanks Mike.

Seems several of my posts must be "inappropriate"....at least I am getting notifications they are being pulled off by someone at AR. I've only been blogging for a few weeks, so guess subject matter about state of my market, buyer activity, etc needs to go somewhere else.
