 Big Acreage and Friday Night Humor from TN It's 8:30 pm on Friday night, and once again I'm still at the office.  I've got a marathon week of showing big acreage tracts of land next week and those require a good bit of advanced planning. To properly show large acreage you need to pull tax maps, topo maps, FEMA flood plane maps, and surveys. You've also got to note the addresses of nearby houses since raw land generally doesn't have a 911 address assigned.  In addition, you've got to note where the access points are and have a 4x4 to traverse the rough cut roads across ridges and "hollers."  Lastly, you've got to have waterproof knee-high boots, rugged denim jeans, and a case of Deepwoods Off to deal with the snakes, ticks, and rough underbrush.  Doesn't that sound like fun?!  (I'm an a...

Why You Should Consult with Your Agent Before Choosing a LenderDoesn't everybody want things to go smoothly when buying a property?  Of course you do!  It's a big purchase and that's stressful enough. The last thing you need are things going wrong.  As a smart buyer, you've carefully researched what steps you should take to prepare.  You've certainly read that you need to get pre-qualified and choose a great Realtor to represent you.  Before you visit your bank, let me suggest that you choose an experienced Realtor first. Once you've made that decision then talk with your agent about the lenders in the area and let them suggest a list of the ones they know do a great job.  This is a big moment in your life and you don't want to risk a bad experience.  Take a look at my latest video to l...

A Helping Hand in Cookeville, TNOne of the cool things about working in real estate is meeting really wonderful people.  Sometimes you meet people who's hearts are so big they leave you feeling utterly humble.  That's the case with my friend Linda.  Linda is a nurse and I can't think of a better profession for her because she's one of those rare human beings who truly loves helping others.  If I'm ever in the hospital, I'll be hoping and praying she's my nurse!Today Linda started a go-fund-me account to help her husband Tom, who is in a wheelchair.  Tom is such a great guy and the love of Linda's life.  She's trying to raise money to take him to the Mayo clinic.  I'm sharing the link to her go-fund-me page so that you can help with this cause if you wish.  Even small donations add up, s...

Cookeville Relocation and a SunsetFor folks relocating to Cookeville, the community is often just as important as the home they buy.  In some cases, even more so if "where" you choose to move to is optional.  As a local Cookeville Realtor, one of the things I do to help my buyers who are relocating is to show them around the town.  I enjoy introducing people to my community because it's a beautiful place with so much to offer.One of my personal favorite things in our area is all of the outdoor activities we have in our backyards. We have several huge lakes, rivers, and loads of state parks.  We also have some great little city parks.  My personal favorite city park is Cane Creek Park.  Even though it's on the outskirts of town, it's actually quite large - 262 acres.  It's close enough t...

Spring in Cookeville TN Farm country While out showing houses a few days ago, I happened upon this beautiful farm near Cookeville TN. It was a perfect blue sky day and I just had to stop and take a picture to share. I'm sure when people visit the area searching for Cookeville farms for sale, they are looking for one just like this one. I'm not bragging when I tell you that we have lots of farms like this in my area! On the other side of this handsome red barn, the stream was really rushing because of all the spring rain we've had recently. This is what I love the most about Tennessee. We have beautiful farms, wide open spaces, and mother nature seems to have a new surprise for you around every curve of the road.

  Have you ever had the opportunity to “move” to another state yourself? This question may be for Real Estate Agents, but it considers the general public as well.  Moving can be a daunting task and if you don’t have a clue about the area you are moving to, well it can be quite stressful as well.  As I myself am a transplant from Texas, I always take extra care to prepare my new comers to the area before they arrive. This thought comes to mind at the moment because I am currently seeking a great and thorough agent in North Carolina to well…take good care of my people.  In this business, sometimes you meet the most wonderful people and when you sell their home, you just want to know they were taken care of on the other end.  I guess that is why I love to do referrals and to take them.  Wh...
