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!
Yesterday I saw a great for sale by owner on the bench near Hawthorne school.  I can't give the address because I do not have the listing but I can earn my commission if I bring a buyer.  I don't usually advertise these but this one is perfect for one of my many Boise Peeps.   This home is 3 bedr...
It was during the foreclosure crisis.  I must have picked them off via Zillow or Trulia.  They were a couple.  The woman was very pretty and the man seemed sort of macho with tats.  They told me they could buy a home and were prequalified.   They wanted to see property with some privacy.  They se...
We have a subscription to the Boise Little Theater!  They are an amateur group of volunteers that do a professional job at putting on good shows.  Annie is the current show and is playing now.  Hubby and I are planning to go on Thursday.  Tickets are quite reasonable at $15 if you call in advance...
I was very pregnant with my first son when I went to the rummage sale at the Orthodox synagogue in Binghamton, NY (in 1987).  My husband and I were graduate students living on $5,000 a year with some parental help (especially with medical bills and clothes).  Earlier that year we joined a synagog...
Today is quiet.  The dinner is done and the leftovers put away.  The snow is gently falling.  The kitchen is clean.  Today I woke at 5 AM  as if I had something to do.  It is black friday and I am not shopping.  This is good.  The dog is sleeping on the couch and I am sitting in the chair.  Soon ...
Today Joshua Holmes is trying to work on his orals for his doctorate. Jesse Holmes is trying to help him a bit. I hover pathetically and really cannot help. Jesse Holmes found this poem that Jonathan Holmes wrote as a child. I Debbie Holmes represent this poem. So for a laugh and a bit of fun at...
I woke up early with Thanksgiving preparations in my mind.  I went to the store at 7 AM.  Then I went to work for a bit.  I needed to learn about my new website.   I have new pictures of me.  I have a land deal where the buyer was trying to get us to agree to a lower price.  That is now settled. ...
Today should be a busy fun day with work and such! I started today with a text to my new broker talking about my land sale.  We will meet at 3 PM today but he told me to stand firm.  The buyer is just trying to get a better deal; my broker thinks that my land is well priced.  Wow! I take a friend...
It started at 1 AM on Friday.  I woke up and looked at my Facebook.  Someone had posted inflammatory fake news earlier and I refuted it.  I had started a minor flame war.  I woke up and got my sources added to my comments.  By then I was awake.  I stayed awake until 4:30 AM.  I only fell asleep b...
I looked in my customer's eyes and realized he saw something different from what anyone else would see and had priced it accordingly (an FSBO).   His father built the house himself with the help of a friend.  He and his sisters were born into this home and stayed until they married out.  He saw t...
