Progression of the Crumbling Cement

It started with a mud-wrestling contest, then an outhouse enhanced the scene until the job was done. This was well-worth the investment in our home. CLICK HERE for more info about having pavers installed at your home!

This August we’re hosting a wedding reception at our home and there are several more things that still have to be done. NEXT MONTH:  A paint-job will occur. Stay tuned!

TRUE Professionals Adhere to the Code of Ethics

Logo of the National Association of Realtors.

Let me give it to you straight. Some real estate people give us a bad name. I remember the film “Poltergeist” when the dead bodies came out of the bottom of the swimming pool and learning that it was the agent who didn’t disclose that the new homes were built on a former cemetery!

That character was NOT a “REALTOR”.

The Poltergeist scene is an extreme dramatized version of the unsavory characters who mar my profession. I’m proud to say, however, that there is a BIG difference between REALTORS who are serious about serving the public in a fair and honest manner and those who steer clear of committing to the professional standards required and expected of a REALTOR.

This is the reason we are so involved in our local REALTOR groups with our REALTOR association and the Women’s Council of REALTORS. We see the importance of keeping our noses clean not only with the public but with each other too.

Would you like to know what we believe in and what is expected of us REALTORS? CLICK HERE for the Code of Ethics.

Note: “REALTOR” is two syllables only and should always be capitalized. There’s so such thing as a “real-a-tor”.

So Many Buyers, Not Enough Sellers!


Get Off the Fence!Just a few months ago homes were sitting on the market beckoning for a buyer to want them!

It’s a bit different now. Buyers are abundant and available homes in affordable price ranges are not. Homes garner multiple offers above asking price with many important contingencies shaved off the contract!

Here’s the deal. When a  real estate professional tells you to BUY NOW, they’re not necessarily just trying to make a sale! Any of us agents who’ve been in business long enough have seen the ups and downs of the market and the frustration our clients face when they don’t get off the fence in a  timely enough manner.

If you’ve set a goal for yourself to do something in life such as purchase a home or sell your home, PREPARE NOW! You never know when it will be too late to enjoy maximum benefits.

However, don’t feel pressured — the timing must be right for YOU…
