  I shot this silk flower at my number one favorite florist in Trinity, Texas. Yep, The Trinity Florist and Gifts. You've heard me talk about them SEVERAL times. And you will be hearing about them again soon. My favorite time to feature them is at Christmas when they have the store full of beautiful Christmas decorations.   But... as The Princess Mama and I were driving through town the other day, we decided to pop in to the Trinity Florist and Gifts for a new flag. We enjoyed the Halloween and Thanksgiving decorations, and a taste of what is yet to come for Christmas.   While we were there, TPM was engrossed with Tonya's work on a flower arrangement. She could hardly take her eyes off of the flowers. So every so discretely, Tonya set aside a Gerbera Daisy, placed a water tube on the b...

Just Closed on 111 Ash in Lakewood at Lake Livingston We JUST CLOSED on this Beautiful 1920’s home in Lakewood at Lake Livingston. My favorite part about this closing was this: Buyer to seller: "We found this home online and fell in love with it the minute we saw it." Seller's response: "That was all Joni. She did a great job marketing our property!" I love my job! ♥ This particular closing took a little longer than normal as the buyer used an out of state lender for their VA loan. Being a relocation referral, the selling agent was not allowed to refer them to a local lender. THEY HAD TO USE the referral company's lender. Unfortunately, the money that they may have saved was spent on a motel room for the past 6 nights as they waited to close. YIKES! Just for the record... our local len...

Trinity Plantation Market Report Trinity Plantation is a small subdivision located a few miles south of the Trinity city limits and a few miles north of Riverside, Texas. My top 2 favorite things about Trinity Plantation are the low annual maintenance fees, and the beautiful swimming pool which is located behind the clubhouse, and right next to the pro shop.  Other Trinity Plantation favorites are the 9 hole golf course and community fishing pier off of the Trinity River. Trinity Plantation is a mixture of mobile homes and traditionally built homes. A while back, the property owner’s association voted to grandfather in the existing mobile homes, but not allow any new mobile homes to be moved in to the subdivision. This is often a place of confusion for LOT buyers as they see mobile hom...

Harbor Point: Another Sale Pending with Joni Staples! Answering your phone, EVEN when you are CAMPING pays off! Today I am thrilled to announce another sale pending because I answered my phone while I was camping! Yep! I showed a lot in shorts and a T-shirt! I did not sell the lot that I showed that day, because it was not the one for them. However, while I was there, they described to me exactly what they wanted... and I knew immediately which lot would work for them. Of course, it was located in a whole different county.  (Lake Livingston is in FOUR counties. It’s huge!) Anyway.... I told them “I know the perfect lot for you. I just showed it the weekend before and it fits what you have described to me. I will email it to you, and if you agree, we can go and see it.” I emailed the lo...

Craigs List Scam for Harbor Point Lots         I have received several calls today from buyers telling me that they saw my ad for lots on Craigs List.    No matter what I say, the buyers seem to think that I placed an ad for some lots.   I DID NOT PLACE THIS AD.   So please be warned. There are scammers out there.   Even if you do want to take a chance and buy something from someone off of Craigs List, NEVER buy something without having the owner pay for title insurance for you. You should receive the title policy in the mail BEFORE you close on the property. Be sure to read the title policy to make sure that they have the legal right to sell you the property, AND to make sure that you are not inheriting their debts or liens. If you have any questions, call the title company that sent y...

Business Spotlight: Trinity Florist Ever since we purchased our first home near Riverside in 1994, Trinity Florist has been one of my FAVORITE shops in Trinity, Texas (our neighbor 7 miles north of Riverside.) In mid March of this year, the Kembro Family purchased the Trinity Florist. The Kembro's have steadily been redesigning the shop and adding new inventory. I dropped by yesterday -- RIGHT AT CLOSING TIME -- and was welcomed in by Denise and Tanya Kembro.  I apologized for coming in so late and they encouraged me to take my time. AFTER I came in, 2 other shoppers dropped by the shop. Denise and Tanya assisted every single one of us in finding exactly what we were looking for. The thing that struck me was that they had no idea how much we were going to spend. 10 minutes after we arr...
