It has been raining since 7 this morning, but it didn't ruin the happy day for my buyer who closed on her first home in West Memphis, Ar.!! She is not just another first time buyer of mine, she is a very hard working single mom first time home buyer who was referred to me from an old client.  I wrote a blog about her 2 months ago A successful story of credit repair to become a home owner at last and we closed this morning at 9 am. She was beyond excited and I am so proud of her to achieve her dream of owning her first house and call it home for her children and herself.  She told me she is going to spend her Thanksgiving Dinner at her new home, it is so heart warming. Helping clients like her is very rewarding.  Frankly, I do want buyers are able to buy when they come to me, who don't? ...

A truly short SHORT SALE story in West Memphis Ar Short Sale, anyone who did one before knows there is nothing short about it.  I am not claiming to be a short sale specialist, we don't have enough short sales in our market to call it a niche, which is good actually. As economy being unstable as it is, many home owners fall into the same financial crisis; losing their job, make less than before, divorce, health issues, you name it and it is out there.  Even though we are not saturated with short sales in our market, we still have some shares out there. I got a call from a home owner about a month or 2 ago, he wanted to see if I could help him to list his house as a short sale.  He already talked to his bank and that's what they suggested him to do.  We met, we talked, I explained and pr...

While we are so busy celebrating the holidays, let's not forget the true meaning of Christmas-the celebration of birth of Jesus Christ.  I am not writing a religious post, but we need to remember Christmas is not about buying tons of Christmas gifts to our children and make them think that's the reason to look forward to celebrating Christmas. We can teach our kids to share the joy of Christmas by helping the less fortunate, after all, 'tis the season for giving.  It is so nice for a kid to learn how to help the others at a young age, it lasts forever, mostly anyway.

I just love this Christmas light decoration, especially Santa Claus in his sleigh on the roof top.  I love Christmas stories, they bring me to another world for a short while, and it is always a happy ending. I hope Santa is coming to your house through the chimney this Christmas and brings you lots of good gifts.  Are you on his good list?

Christmas is the time when most of us are enjoying the company of our family and share the quiet time, but, don't forget there are many other family members are stationed overseas to protect us at this time of the year. Please keep them in your prayer to keep them safe also.

Great opportunity to be an investor by buying foreclosures in Marion, West Memphis, Ar.   We are pretty fortunate that we are not saturated with foreclosures in Marion, West Memphis, Ar.  We have some, but it is not taking over the market.  Some of them are actually good buy for an investor to buy.  I have recently sold a foreclosure to an investor for merely almost nothing, the house has so much potential , it has lots of space, 2 stories house, over 2,400 square feet, 4 bedrooms and 2 baths.   My investor is going to spend some money to fix it up and let me list it on the market for him.  And he is interested in buying more investment properties and become a full time investor.  If you know what you are doing, you are financial ready to buy when a good deal pops up anytime, you can ei...
