Happy St. Patrick's Day!   I found this Irish Blessing today and thought it was particularly appropriate since I am a Realtor and this is what I sincerly wish for all of my clients:   May you always have... Walls for the winds A roof for the rain Tea beside the fire Laughter to cheer you Those you love near you And all that your heart might desire.   Have a beautiful St. Patrick's Day!

      This is a cause near and dear to my heart. My daughter's mother-in-law is battling cancer and our family is reaching out for assistance in developing a fund to aid in our efforts of “Keeping Edie Well”.  Edie was diagnosed with lung cancer in the summer of 2012, less than a year after losing her younger sister to lung cancer.  So after great prayer and reflection she made the decision to set forth in alternative medical treatment options that are not covered by insurance.  She is continually traveling back and forth to the Dallas Area to maintain her treatment plan.  Edie’s faith and determination to enhance and maintain her quality of life to be there for her family and friends has been inspirational, and has instilled in all of us that we are to “Trust in the LORD with all our H...

Daylight Savings Time Should Be on a Friday Afternoon!  I hope you all are surviving losing that precious hour! I am but only with loads of coffee! I saw this picture on facebook and I had to laugh. It did get me wondering why we can't have it on a Friday afternoon. I think that it would put everyone in a MUCH better mood (I know it would me!). I say we start a petition and get this going!  WHO'S WITH ME?

    Once you've made the decision to sell your home, it's time to think about what comes next. I always tell my sellers to slow down and make sure the home they are selling is in tip top show ready shape. How do you do that?

  The decision to purchase a home is exciting and a major investment for your future.  Because there is only so much of it to go around, real estate is the top choice for many investors and the desire for most families.    Tired of The Rental Game One of the most profitable markets in real estate is rentals, which means that many families are paying to live in a home that isn't their own.  In some cases, renting a home is necessary.  For all others, the money that would be spent on rent could instead be used to pay a mortgage.  In fact, monthly rent payments often exceed that of a typical mortgage payment.  One of the greatest benefits of home ownership is putting money into something that you can call your own and knowing that the monthly payments are going toward your home's equity.  ...

  Buying a home can be both exciting and stressful but, for those with past credit problems, the process may also seem intimidating.  The good news is that many lenders have adapted to the idea that many hopeful homeowners simply need a second chance, which means that past credit problems no longer have to define your future.   Credit Blemishes   When life unexpectedly takes a turn for the worst, it's not always possible to come out without a few bumps and bruises.  Every day, people are faced with late or missed credit card payments, mortgage foreclosures, bankruptcy proceedings, auto repossessions and even civil judgments that will affect their credit reports for years to come. Whether it's from a job loss, injury or just a simple case of temporary hardship, credit blemishes are often...
