Nathaniel flew from New York to one of the New Construction homes for sale in Alexander AR! There are a LOT of moving parts when it comes to any transaction but when you add a cross-country relocation into the mix, things can get tricky! What you wouldn't know just by looking at this picture is that the first time Nathaniel toured his home was at the final walk through. Because flights can get expensive, we had to get creative and use video to allow Nathaniel to tour homes and areas virtually. I went through two phone mounts for my car helping Nathaniel see properties by recording videos from my dashboard as I drove around different communities. As soon as we found the one and he went under contract, I knew it was important for him to have a team locally that would get us to our quickly...

There are still lots of people in the Central Arkansas area that have never heard of Lake Norrell.  Lake Norrell is really coming out these days.  The change started about 3 years ago.  Tolleson Land & Timber Company decided to sell some of its holdings on Lake Norrell road and on North Lake Norrell Dr.  Keeping it in mind none of this property is lake front, in fact, none of it is even lake view.  What has happened is a real metamorphisis.  Large parecels of land have been cut up into smaller parcels and some of the original purchasers of Tolleson property, have started to sell.  The end result is new houses popping up everywhere.  While most of the property that has been sold isn't lake front or even lake view, some people realized that a "breathtaking" view of the foothills of the Oz...

I, like most people, am not always the most enthusiastic person.  Sometimes we feel tired, sometimes things don't go our way or we get drawn into the whole negative world that the news media perpetuates, etc... we can always change our level of enthusiasm.  Think of children who are always amazed at discovering new things.  I personally like to draw inspiration from a couple of my TV heroes:  The late Steve Irwin (The Crocodile Hunter) and Bear Grylls (Man vs. Wild).  Steve loved sharing his experiences with others and it showed.  Bear has a overall zest for life and also enjoys sharing his experiences with other people. In our business, it is a must to be enthusiastic.  We are helping people enjoy the dream of home ownership - what a cool thing to be involved in!  Plus our enthusiasm c...

Well Fall is in the air, and home sales are really picking up here in Central Arkansas.  Many people are under the assumption that Spring is the best time to buy and sell homes.  I don't know why, but my best time has always been the Fall. Things have been looking up now for awhile and it's not a turn in the economy that's spurring on the sales - it's the fact that we never were grossly overpriced with our inventory in Central Arkansas Real Estate market like some areas of the country were. (before the economic downturn) We are truly blessed to have the new construction inventory at a good balance as well.  I've heard that some areas had a massive over abundance before the slide and have not fared so well - leading to problems like an entire new construction neighborhood falling prey to...

My partner and I had decided to hold a HOMEBUYER'S SEMINAR.  One of our main concerns was being able to get the word out without a lot of expense.  My company has a PR person that is always asking for any kind of news that they may be able to share with the media outlets.  (Especially since the media is all doom and gloom!)  So, I figured I would see if they could do anything with this.  I emailed them some details on the seminar and then they worked their magic.  They were able to write an awesome article and sent it to all of the local newspapers.  Thankfully, they ALL published the article.  They also sent it to the local TV stations, and our ABC affiliate contacted me about being on their Saturday Day Break Morning Show.  My first thought was OMG!!!  WHAT HAVE I DONE!!!  I've never ...

John and Marge Smith just bought a new country home, just outside the city limits. After about of week of unpacking and re-storing the household to normal, John decided to crank up the old lawnmower and tackle the young “hayfield” that had started growing in the back yard. After about 30 minutes of mowing, John came running into the kitchen, all excited and out of breath, “Marge, Marge, we’re rich, we’re rich. Marge, thinking John had maybe gotten a little too much sun or had started on the “Bud Lites” a little bit early, asked John, “what in the world are you talking about?” We’ve got oil bubbling up in the back yard, we’re rich! You know, Black Gold, Texas T! Well, unfortunately that bubbling crude was not “Black Gold or Texas T”, it was sewage from the Smiths septic system. The Smith...

  Lake Norrell, in Alexander, Arkansas is a 280 acre lake located just 40 minutes from Little Rock and has been a well kept secret, with the exception of a few avid water enthusiasts who frequent Lake Norrell to take advantage of boating, fishing, scuba diving and jet skiing.  Lake Norrell, located in Northern Saline County less than 3 miles from the Pulaski County line, has been for many years the emergency or back-up water supply for the City of Benton.   In fact, Lake Norrell is owned by the City of Benton.  Normally, when you mention Lake Norrell, most people in Central Arkansas never heard of it.  Over the years Lake Norrell residents have enjoyed the quite solitude and serenity this beautiful lake had to offer.  Lake Norrell has been one of those places that is so remotely located...

Well...here I go AGAIN. Apparently every single person in Benton, Bryant, and Saline County Arkansas has decided that I am the only person that can help them buy their first home. My last 4-5 transactions have been first time home buyers, and I have two more this weekend and one coming up next week. So, I have thought about why I seem to not only do a lot of this, but actually like it as a business model for myself. And here are my conclusions.1. First time Home Buyers buying $80,000 houses get me a REALLY BIG paycheck.  OK..that part is not true, but sounds good! Truth is I barely make enough from some of these to pay my OWN house payment.2. It's just really neat and fun! If you can work around the whole not getting paid much, truth is not many more things are as satisfying on a person...

Supported organizations from the past year included: Saline County Habitat for Humanity, The Arkansas Realtors Association participation  with the Special Olympics, and Saline Memorial Hospice. According to Sheila Blankenship Saline Home Builders Association Executive Officer, the event was a "huge success", and their fundraising goal was well exceeded. According to Sheila, 14 associated businesses had entries in the Chili Cook off. Prizes were awarded in several categories, with the coveted Best Chili prize going to

A great start to the year in Benton!! Not only are total sell value and number of homes sold in January 2007, up from last year, but they are up from January 2005, THE BEST YEAR ON RECORD FOR ARKANSAS REAL ESTATE SALES.  This is the data on sales of detached home for the month of January for the last three years, as pulled from the Central Arkansas Multi List                                                           2007                       2006                           2005Total Detached homes sold                       37                           36                              34Average Price                                 $139,318                 $142,512                    $128,675Median Price                                   $127,000                 $120,250                 ...

 It was a great start to the year for 2007 in Bryant. I pulled this data from the record of closed transactions for the month of January for the last three years. Remember one very important fact. 2005 WAS THE BEST YEAR IN ARKANSAS REAL ESTATE, EVER. As you can see, only only one less home in Bryant closed than in 2005, and a whopping 7 more from 2006 to 2007. I had some concern about the average and median prices at first, but some reasearch showed two homes in 2006 sold that sold for over a half million dollars, somewhat unusual for Bryant, and really skewed the average and median prices. But if you look at the increase from 2005 to 2006, seems so far, we may be having a better year than the previous best one!!!                                                                          ...

Well...here I go again. Later today, I'm off to show and work with one of my most favorite people in the world, the first time home buyer.  This has been a lengthy process, we first started probably 8 months ago. In fact, we had found them their dream home, got an accepted offer, then....POOF...it all went up in smoke in an instant when this small detail involving a surrender of a previous house came to light during the final loan underwriting. It wasn't really the clients fault at all, was one of those divorce related things that happen to people in this thing we call life.We could have parted ways then, and neither one of us would have ever thought about it again, we tried hard, just didn't work out. But, I knew these folks, had been in their home, and we both knew why they really, re...
