McKinney, Texas and the surrounding cities make up my "stomping ground". I live here, work here and play here. My blog will feature real estate information & market activity specific to this area. Whether you are a local buyer, seller, resident or fellow Realtor I hope that this blog will provide insight into what makes McKinney and Collin County so unique!
One of the cool things about having a real estate blog is that I get to help out people who are new to our community. I especially love to help out fellow MOMS (and dads, too)! As Moms we rely on our girlfriends for just about everything - way more than our husbands or spouses realize. So when yo...
Today I was browsing real estate articles on the Texas Association of Realtors website. One caught my eye in particular... "House Hunting Fee to Debut" In a nutshell, it was about a Chicago brokerage who is now starting to charge home buyers a retainer fee. Much like an attorney, the agents will ...
Welcome to the first installment of Texas Ranger Tuesday!! I figure it's only natural to begin this weekly segment, given the fact I'll more than likely try to squeeze Texas Rangers baseball into my real estate blogs anyway. So, this way my baseball-loving readers can count on something good eac...
I'd like to say a big THANK YOU to the crappy lending institutions out there (my good lender friends, this is NOT aimed at you), who for the last couple have years have disappointed me, my clients and our industry. I'd like to THANK YOU for setting my expectations SO LOW that I've come to accept ...
Ohhh....Pinterest. How I love you and hate you. Love you because you give the BEST ideas out there. Really, you do. Kudos. However, when someone like ME decides to try and bust out of their creative shell - all in the name of explaining Easter and the Resurrection - and attempts to TRY one of the...
Yesterday I got to do one of my favorite things in this business: help a friend move BACK to the DFW area - or in this case, to move to the DFW area for the FIRST TIME! Who DOESN'T get excited that an old friend will soon be a neighbor?? I was giddy excited, and really wanted to do a great job to...
It's finally SPRING in North Texas!! Well, duh! March 21, 2012 officially ushered in the new season...but until today, all other days were just a "warm up" - to me. So what changed? A few things... The buyers and sellers are OUT in full force. Today alone I showed some relocating buyers homes in ...
Today I was reading a great blog post written by the Scott Loper Team out of RE/MAX in Harleysville, PA. It was all about the top 10 odors that offend home buyers. Scott really hit the nail on the head with that post, and it served as the inspiration for this post. In addition to odors that offen...
  The RoughRiders (Texas AA Team) vs. the Texas Rangers - Exhibition Game April 4, 2012 Yu Darvish on the mound for the first time for Texas fans! Incredible Spring weather, despite the crazy tornado weather yesterday. All in all - a GREAT way to usher in the Baseball Season in Frisco TX. Play B...
If you're new to the Dallas/Fort Worth area...allow me to welcome you to your little space in Tornado Alley! Today, April 3, 2012, DFW experienced several tornadoes. Even as I'm blogging this, there are STILL storms in the area with possibly more on the way. Prayers go out to all that have been ...
