I love stories. In particular those told in movie theaters. I also love books. When I open a book to read I am immediately transported into the story. Stories are powerful ways to get a point across. People can relate so much better to stories than to dry facts. As a real estate agent I find that...
In a recent meeting with some potential sellers, I was asked if they should keep the pink window treatments, in the pink room. Not just any pink, but a pepto-bismol pink. The color actually wasn't terrible, but it and the window treatments made the room look dated.So, I offered to the sellers tha...

But for those of us still attached to our mice, here we go.About 3 weeks ago I was walking up a flight of wooden ...
 Ever pulled up to the front of a home, and even before you leave your car, you fall in love with the home? How about just the opposite. You pull up to a home and decide to not even slow the car down. I call this a drive by. Something about the home just turned you off. It could be something you ...
Friday I spoke with a gentleman looking to relocate from Tennessee to this area to be near his kids. He has a home on a lake in Tennessee and would like to have the same here. Luckily, we are blessed with 2 great lakes in this area, so we started discussing exactly what he was looking for. The ge...
This is one of my favorite real estate responses, it depends. An agent will be asked a seemingly easy question to answer by their client, and they may very well respond, it depends. Do you know why? Well, you guessed it, it depends.Many questions asked in the normal course of events in real estat...
