  When it comes to your pets, are you like me?  Do you spoil them?  My dogs really may be treated better than my kids.  In the picture to the left is Bellah, a very pampered Shih tzu.  In the picture on the right is Olive, a bulldog.   AKA the Bull-Shi_ girls!  Yes, Olive's tongue always hangs out like that! Because I'm so crazy for them, I worry about them when we travel.  We have boarded them and we have had them stay with family.  Even though they have always been well cared for, I have always felt they would be so much happier spending their time at home.  But, who would let the dogs out?Well yesterday I met the owner of Edmond Critter Sitter, Sheila Manning.  I was excited to here about her business.  Edmond Critter Sitter offers an alternative to boarding in kennels!  Perfect!Edmo...

Arcadia Lake in Edmond, Oklahoma There are so many people in Edmond that live to get out to one of the area lakes every weekend.  I must admit to you, I am not one of those people.  I'm not one for water sports or hanging out on the shoreline.  So, even though I have lived in Edmond for more than thirteen years, I had not ventured to Arcadia Lake for more than dropping off my daughter at Girl Scout camp.  Until yesterday.Yesterday, my daughter and I ventured to Arcadia Lake for a hike.  What a great afternoon we had!  Arcadia Lake has a 8.5 mile (one way) multi-use trail.  No, we did not hike the whole trail! The trail is used by walkers, runners, and cross country bikers.  We hiked some of the trail and then walked by the new UCO Center for Outdoor Recreation and down to the water's ed...

Last year I helped a great family sell their Oklahoma home as they relocated to another state.  They have been searching for their next new home and may have found a house that will meet their needs.  The house is listed for sale as a potential short sale.  Unfamiliar with Short Sales, she wrote today with a few questions; "...we are starting to look at houses in the area of town we want to live in. We've already found one that we really like, but it's a short sale. If you have the time, will you share some wisdom with me about short sales? The bottom line is, we will get about half the house for the same cost here. I would love some good advice on bargaining with a short sale. It's listed as needing TLC..." This is a common question from home buyers the Oklahoma City metro and around t...

Yesterday I was out for a quick jog in my neighborhood, Park Lane Estates.  It was such a treat to have the sun shining.  Especially since I had not had the opportunity to get out with so much yucky weather lately!  While I was out I noticed that several homes in the addition have recently been listed for sale.  There are "For Sale" signs in all the usual shapes and colors.  Which means there will be plenty of buyers coming into Park Lane Estates to check things out.How about an insider's view?  As an Edmond Realtor and a homeowner in Park Lane Estates I feel like I know what home buyer's want to know about this great Edmond neighborhood.First the basics.  Established in 1990, Park Lane Estates is located in Edmond, Oklahoma near the intersection of Danforth and Santa Fe.  Homes in the...

My neighbor has one of the most beautiful yards in Edmond.  You really should see it.  He wins "Yard of the Month" for the neighborhood at least once every year.  It is meticulously manicured.  The flowers are colorful and the lawn is lush.  But on this January day you would never know it.Are you like my neighbor?  Do you spend hours in the spring and summer caring for the landscaping of your Edmond home?  Are you the first one on the street to fire up the lawn mower?  Do the folks at the TLC and Lowe's know you by name?  If so, I know you are proud of all your hard work.  Do you have a picture or two of your garden in all it's splendor.  Or maybe, a picture of the kiddos playing out back on the grass.When you are trying to sell your Edmond house in the dead of winter, buyers can not ap...

Last weekend my office had a booth at the Oklahoma City Home & Garden Show.  It was fun to meet the public and answer questions about buying and selling real estate in Oklahoma.  It was also a great opportunity to meet other exhibitors participating in the event and learn about new products in the industry.While there, I had the chance to meet Josh Stallings, the owner of Steel-Built Construction.  Josh is offering custom, steel framed, residential homes with six inch exterior walls!  As he told me about his product I immediately remembered seeing his current project in Edmond.  It was recently in the framing stage and could not be missed as you drove west on NW 150.  You may have noticed it too.  While new construction is not uncommon in Edmond, a steel frame house certainly is differe...
