As a relocation specialist, I am always up to the task of previewing homes for my out-of-town clients.  But usually they come to town at some point to see homes in person, and make a decision.  Imagine my surprise when a new client last fall informed me that he would NOT be coming to Columbus, O...

Way back in 2003 (ha,ha), when I was taking my real estate pre-licensing courses, part of my education touched on the standard real estate concept of "highest and best use" of properties.  For most of my readers that may not be familiar with the term, here is a definition, in a parable: John and...

As a relocation specialist, I work with relocation buyers all over our metro area, and even into the surrounding counties.  I am currently working with a buyer that is looking in Reynoldsburg, the city (an easterly suburb of Columbus) in which I have lived for nearly 20 years.  I keep up on gene...

 Photo Credit By now, everyone in the real estate space has heard of Twitter.  And almost everyone in the real estate space has been told by a social media expert, marketing guru, or some other well-meaning soul that "you need to be using Twitter to get business".  I am not a Twitter expert.  Her...

I came across this listing photo while setting up an MLS search for a new client:   In general, as a design choice, wallpaper border is out.  If you still have some tasteful border in your kitchen or bath, don’t feel compelled to rip it out right away, as long as it’s tasteful and subdued, and it...

 The most common feature that I have been finding in my frequent visits to and showings of Columbus, OH foreclosures is not something that can be seen in pictures, or even in video.  It is something that only the "nose knows": the unmistakable evidence that the previous residents' dogs had used t...

A local Central Ohio real estate agent was assaulted as she inspected a foreclosed home (REO) yesterday at a neighborhood on the southwest side of Columbus, OH.  The home is located on Rolling Court in the Hidden Meadows subdivision, which is just outside of Grove City. The agent was most likely...
