Learning From Nature Are You On Top Or In The Trenches?   Taking my youngest to the Greensboro Natural Science Museum is home to many animals from tigers to alpacas.  But, of interest in todays lesson is the small but community oriented Merkat.  You see Merkats always live as an extended family and they are constantly watching out for each other.   You will always have the workers and rest of  the community going about their daily business in the trenches.    Always working and just once in awhile glancing over their shoulders but not concerned because they trust someone else to watch out for them.     So is your agent watching out for you?  How is your comfort level with their performance?  Maybe you are a first time home buyer.  A client whether buyer or seller needs to be able to tru...

  Greensboro, NC US Airways Magazine did an amazing 71 page spread on Greensboro in their July issue. Have you seen it? We couldn’t have asked for better publicity. They begin by proclaiming: “Barbecue, basketball, and business: It’s a conveniently alliterative trio that’s synonymous with Greensboro, the historic hub of North Carolina’s picturesque Piedmont region. Yet there’s so much more to the city’s identity — museums, galleries, festivals, parks, music, and the dramatic arts. The combination of a pleasant, four-season climate, a deep menu of restaurants, and a gracious Southern style is tough to top.” The article includes a wealth of information on our region: theater and the arts, sports – including our obsession with the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) and the museum to prove it....

    Two Of The Most Affordable States In The United States by Tony Jarrett of Allen tate REALTORS We have written in recent blog posts that now is the time to buy your next home in North Carolina and South Carolina. Combine low mortgage rates and lower housing prices, and you have an incredible housing value.  We believe these will be the days we all look back and wish we had bought another house.  As billionaire investor John Paulson recently said – “If you don’t own a home, buy one. If you own one home, buy another one. If you own two homes, buy a third. And lend your relatives the money to buy a home.” Now comes more great news: North Carolina and South Carolina are two of the most affordable states in terms of mortgage closing costs. Bankrate.com introduced its 2011 Closing Costs Su...

  How to Prepare for a Home Inspection by Amanda Serra of Allen Tate REALTORS Most people would think about the inspection of their home the day before the home inspector is scheduled to arrive. But if you are planning to sell your home it is always good practice to take care of some of the potential issues before you put your house on the market. Is the banister to the deck and/or the stairs loose?  Is there chipping paint on the window frame? If the house was built before 1978, lead-based paint is a concern. And depending on the loan type, it may be a requirement that this be fixed. Anything that is a potential safety risk is always a good idea to fix right away. Not only will it reduce your liability before potential buyers visit your home, but by not fixing the issue, you may lead s...

Practice Flying Air Force One is something that must be done.  So where do you think they go to practice take off and landings?  Where you might ask well Greensboro, NC at our Piedmont Triad International Airport.  So when I was going by one of our excellent aviation companies Timco Aviation to get one of my clients to sign some papers what do we see but a 747 painted white and blue flying around practicing landing and taking off.

Are all Insurance Agents Created Equal? By Robin Price of Allen Tate Ten years ago, you didn’t expect to turn on the television and see insurance companies battling it out for commercial time in between your favorite shows. You also didn’t see them as some of the biggest sponsors of the sporting event of the year, the Super Bowl. Times have changed though—and some of the big insurance companies out there are spending millions of dollars each year to tell you that you can save 15% in 15 minutes. Their focus is price-driven and I understand why. Customers want to save money. You want to save money. I want to save money too. But I don’t agree with the fact that they simplify insurance as if it’s a commodity like gasoline. All agents and all insurance companies are not created equal. Price ...
