More often than not, the best real estate agents manage their transactions so well that the clients never realize the drama and trauma happening behind the curtain.  It is the very rare deal that is absent of that excitement, most have some sort of issues to work out. Occasionally we make it look...
When most people think of pressure cooking or canning, all they can remember are mothers, aunts, and grandmothers stressfully saying "get the children out of the kitchen!".  My family dabbled in canning but I don't remember anyone using a pressure canner.  Still, the pressure canner is a little i...
Gardening can be seductive...a lot of work but really seductive.  Before I knew it, I was in for the ride of my life.  It started simply, a way to take control over some of the food that enters my body.  We studied how to do this, asked advice from any friend who'd ever turned a shovel of dirt, a...

There's a hot tub on our covered patio and the deck runs down the front and side of the house for great entertaining."   The houses that are the most pleasure ...
      Seriously? Sure, it happens...but not often. In ten years of real estate I've only had two agents tell me after they conveyed acceptance of an offer that they had missed an important term. The first time we were within a week of closing and the agent only noticed because more than $2000 tow...
Terrible Fire in Downtown Sylva, NC...Saturday, August 16, 2014 ...Kelly Timco Photos     This past Saturday morning started like most others. We had plans to go to downtown Sylva to enjoy the celebration of the NC Cooperative Extension's 100th birthday and to go by our local tailgate market. I p...
  In Real Estate Pre-Licensing and Post-Licensing courses in North Carolina, it is drilled into real estate agents that we MUST know who we work for.  In our state, agents work either FOR the seller or the buyer, with clear fiduciary responsibilities of confidentiality to either the Seller or the...
