Real Estate Agent - John L. Scott - Sp34627
This is the public Blog of Debbie Holmes. Real estate agent extraordinaire, with scientific training (which makes me very good at analysis). I have three boys. One going who just graduated law school and two in graduate school. I am one lucky mom!
After 73 days from our accepted offer.   After a terrible ordeal for my client refinancing his current home.  After 2 extensions.  After a TV being dumped in the back yard.  After problems with the inspection (because the heater didn't work and it was freezing outside).  After the client leaving ...
We took in a stray.  Unfortunately my cat hates him.  He has been hanging around our neighborhood for years.   I know who his daddy must of been because he has extra toes.  He is a very handsome creature who our housemate has tamed.  The lady next door used to feed him but she has dementia and do...
Sometimes before closing a buyer starts to feel ownership of the home.  Let me make it clear.  UNTIL the home is Signed, Funded and RECORDED you, the BUYER do not own it.  If you want to fix something you need to get the SELLERS premission!   You also should not be on the property without permiss...
Every so often it happens.  I settle all my buyers and all my sellers.  This is actually a really good thing.   After a bit I realize that all my clients are pending.  That is when this real estate agent is seeking clients.  I am pretty sure I could handle 4 transactions a month without needing a...
I was getting worried.  I had never saw the Lucky Peak Resevour so low.... It looked like a little puddle with the docks at least 30 ft above the puddle.   They were talking about farmers not getting their water.  That would mean no crops.  Animals not getting enough water.   I would have to use ...
When I was a kid we celebrated George Washington's Birthday and Abraham Lincoln's birthday.  These must have been the only two presidents who had birthdays!  It was sort of great because we would have 2 days off and Valentine's day in the short month of February!   On leap years we would always j...
The time passes so swiftly.  It seems like yesterday that my firstborn was put into my arms.  Today my last baby is 21!  He is a college junior, 6ft 1 in with a magnificant beard.  It is hard to believe that all three of my sons are men.   Yesterday my hubby and I took him to a very nice resturau...
The property inspection came back for my buyers.  I am sort of happy I am representing the  buyers and not the sellers because it was not so good.  We have the usual collection of little things but a couple of things that my buyer will need fixed.  The real problems are all in the crawl space.  W...
Happy Valentine's day.   When  you love and cherish someone you often want to make a home together.  I wonder how many people will get engaged today?  I would like to think that Valentine's day is about love not lust.  The two can be related.  It is good to remember to treat your life partner wit...
  I first heard about Ilene when her husband died. I was head hen of our chicken soup group at our Synagogue. Since I was head hen that month the Rabbi emailed me with the details. Ilene's niece from back east contacted the Rabbi because she was all alone. I called the Rabbi and asked what we sho...
