        Look what I've found this time.  This is a postcard of Morning Sun, Searcy AR.  It is a newspaper copy and not a great picture but who would have thought there'd be one at all? Morning Sun reminds me of one of our real estate friends who said as a young man he worked at the filling statio...

      Thanks to a friend of mine for giving me permission to put these football beauties on my blog.  These ladies were football royalty at Searcy High School in 1953.  All were lovely.  The thing that intriques me in these old pictures is how styles change but the young people don't really chang...

  I have a permanent search on ebay for certain collectibles or memorabilia and one of the searches I have is for Searcy AR, my home town.  The fun thing is ebay will email you any new items for that search.  No looking every night or wondering if you've missed something.  This card is one that I...

Fire! Fire! I had cash buyers in my car.  They liked houses in nice quiet established neighborhoods.  I called an agent to show her house.  She had her own house listed and she knew exactly how to make it show well.  We'd had lots of training and knew what we were doing. She rushed home to turn o...

 This rap tune has been on youtube for several months now and each time I view it I appreciate the work that had to go into it to make it.  These four Harding University students had to walk down the streets of Searcy, climb over railroad cars, write the lyrics, record the lyrics, probably lip-si...

Our area Realtors get together every week to tour new listings and every so often on that 5th Wednesday that comes around, we have guest speakers or some type of program.  Yesterday we met with area loan officers, appraisers, inspectors, title work companies and a representative from the city to ...

  We don't have a lot of condos in Searcy Arkansas, a small 20,000 population city approximately 50 miles from Little Rock  Arkansas.  The first ones built were exciting for our city but the builder made a mistake.  He had an "outsider architect" plan them and though they were beautiful they had ...

Walking by my azalea bush in the back yard, I was almost blinded by the color.  It will only last a few days and be gone.  Looking at the neighbor's yard, I saw this tree that is also so colorful.  With flooding all over Arkansas, as you've probably read in the news, it should be cheerful to see ...

 We are pleased to have new people moving to Searcy.  Several families are being relocated to White County as gas wells are being built and all the jobs that go with gas production are filled.  Everyone is excited as we watch to see what happens in this previously quiet town.At this point, Searcy...

REALTORS  have a saying about a house that is about two or three years old.  We sometimes call it a "better than new house" because some owner has worked on the yard, added the window coverings and sometimes added a privacy fence. This house located on Shawn Terrace in Searcy AR qualifies for tha...

This great old house in Searcy has been here for a long time.  It is located near downtown Searcy and was built before the street was paved, as you can see in the original picture.  I once had it listed and the inside was so interesting with lovely wood trim and wood floors and butler's pantry an...

Don't you who get out in the country from time become nostalgic when you drive by a dilapidated old home place?  It will have large trees, outbuildings, animal pens, garden spot, but probably no chicken pen because the chickens roamed free and left nice droppings all over the yard for little kids...

Our town had a little excitement Monday afternoon as one of our branch banks called in to report they'd been robbed.  We have gained a LOT of branch banks in Searcy and some are in quiet areas where a robber would likely not be seen except by the bank employees.  The robber had his head pretty we...

We are supposed to change our clocks tonight so that we lose an hour and many people will show up late for chruch in the morning.  I always like the longer days and hate it in the winter when I drive home in the dark at 5:00 pm.  I can't remember a time, however, that the weather outside on this ...

Planning a cross country trip to visit relatives made us decide to buy a GPS system.  After lots of investigating we decided it was worth the extra money to have the voice tell us to turn at a particular street and name the street.  We bought the Garmin Nuvi 260 and it arrived this week.I have to...

 This blog is because of Gary Woltal's blog about advertising and whether to do print advertising anymore or just stick with the internet.  It made me do a little thinking. Thanks, Gary, for making me think. : )I'm lost without my newspaper every morning and I don't think I'm alone in feeling thi...

BUY a home or not to buy is the question?  There is a lot of negativity in the media about how bad the real estate market is.  Acording to NAR Chief Economist, Mr. Lawrence Yun, nearly half of  the Country experienced a price increase. While everyone is pointing fingers on who's fault it was for ...
