Although Lake Greenwood's waters extend into 3 different SC counties (Greenwood, Laurens and Newberry) the entire lake bed is the property of Greenwood County thanks to a deal with local farmers in the early 1930s. Lake Greenwood is a recreational lake offering many fishing and boating opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts. The lake is often replenished with ...

Dear Homeowner You Know When You're In Trouble With Your Mortgage sooner than anyone else. Contacting your lender before it gets out of hand can get you back on track in many cases, there are usually remedies for short term difficulty, they don't want your home back. On the other hand if you know that your circumstances have changed long term and that there is no short remedy that is going to allow you to make the payments then hanging on to the last minute and having the lender take action is not smart. Coming to grips with the situation you are in and making a decision to change your lifestyle to fit your present situation is pro-active. You can make the decision can lift the burden off so you can regroup and move forward in peace. Make the decision swiftly, interview Realtors, pick t...

The Birth Of Real Estate Greenwood SC Dot Com   One of the best things I learned in my long, long life is that I can do anything I decide I want to do. It may take a lot of hard work, it may take a lot of learning, it may even take a lot of time and I may need some help doing it but I can do it. The trouble with most of us is that if we don't have the skills in our tool belt we have the mindset that if I don't know how to do it then I'm too old or too out of the loop to learn how. Wrong   Case in point I was 52 when I decided to give up a lifelong career as a Cosmetologist to pursue another career path Real Estate.
