RECENT BLOG POSTS
I had mentioned in a previous blog my purchase of some property on the New River in West Jefferson, NC.  It has provided me many topics to blog about in the coming weeks.  It has been a long journey (saved for later topics) to get the infrastructure in and approved.  When politicos talk about red...

A few weeks ago, my son was invited to do a presentation at a Fortune 500 corporation in Raleigh, NC.  What was supposed to be a small intimate tea tasting turned out to be a large group presentation and a tea tasting.  Of course this company is famous for their wellness programs so he should not...

In our search for some mountain land, we parked our RV in a campground just outside of Boone and in Asheville, we parked our RV in Black Mountain.  In neither office did I find any real estate business cards, flyers, or brochures and yet, when we walked our dogs in the evening, we visited with se...

PART I         Last summer, my spouse was fed up with all the tourists and the heat at the beach.  We did experience some very hot, dry days and the beaches were packed .  On our escape to the mountains in September, he wanted to explore the possibility of purchasing a property in the mountains. ...

My husband and I are looking for property in the Boone or Asheville areas...we're not real sure.  We are planning a trip soon to do some exploring.  We want extra land for escape and privacy not just a half acre lot.  We want to be close to or on water of some kind...cosmetic fixers are fine. We ...

I cruised to Myrtle Beach this afternoon and it was a morgue on a weekend that the beach should have been packed.  News media can be blamed for some of these issues.  On one hand they would say Irene was going to miss our area and then reporters would talk about she could this...she could that fo...

This morning I woke up to the sound of chainsaws.  I live at the beach so we rode around yesterday afternoon to view the damage...lots of broken limbs, some uprooted trees, lost shingles, and other damage from the wind but not so bad.  The problem is not so bad here that local repairmen will prob...

I found my son a home in Greensboro, NC earlier in the year.  The agent I found was excellent but the home inspector he recommended was not so great.  Several of the issues that the inspector missed or didn't mention in his report costs less than $2000 to repair.  We all recognized that in a fore...

Why is it so hard for agents to take multiple pictures so that a property has a chance of being shown.  I am no longer working in an agency setting; I have retired, but I am buying property.  By next summer, I want to own a place in the NC mountains so I have been searching all the routine sites ...

weeks ago, my son closed on a home in the Cardinal Lake area of Greensboro.  I admit it; he bought a home that was the worst home on the street.  Most homes in the area have from 1-5 acres and the terrain is beautiful.  The home had great bones but had sadly been neglected.  We have all worked fo...
