My Heart wasn't into it... I met amazing lady today who had her house previously listed, but sometimes... the heart just isn't into the journey. It is coming up on 2 years that her husband passed away, and the family is ready to sell their home of 7 years. Previously, I sent her a packet of information, and a questionnaire related to her home, comparative homes... and the like. I prefer to lead with information, it's the only thing that I know how to do. And it give the home owner a chance to think about their process, and what they would like to do next. Anyway, back to this kind lady... I was actually on my way home from showing homes in Downtown Wilmington, and the weather was unusually pleasant (and since I live around the corner from this kind lady)... decided to do a pop-by. I wan...

Why are you calling me?? My Home Expired? Well may it RIP! It is so disappointing when a home does not sell. For the owner, and also the agent. It's probably even crazier that, in the midst of everything thing, a real estate agent (or twenty) will probably call you and ask you a bunch of questions about your home... then ask if you still want to sell it. I admit, I have tried to help people sell their homes this way, but I also understand that you may not want to hear from a "Realtor" immediately after, what may have been, and emotionally draining experience. I mean, your house didn't sell. You listened to a marketing speech, you probably saw pictures, and perhaps a power point presentation. Everything sounds great until the home does not sell. Ready to soul search? Want to take a break...

Free Boating Access Area, Hampstead, NC My Husband grew up boating every summer with his grandfather. It is inevitable that we start window shopping for our own. Then there will (eventually) be a boat parked out front with our name on it! But, before we even consider getting a boat, we need to think about all the associated costs. From storage to cleaning, maintenance, and seasonal preparation... it can all add up. For the most part, storage is not the issue. The biggest question is where do we go to put  it in the water and enjoy! For my family, and for others in the Hampstead area, that question was answered! Yes there are different places to launch a boat in Pender county... but this one is conviently located..... and free. In the summer of 2012; the North Carolina Commission, togeth...

When I left home for the first time, one of the speeches that my mom gave me was… "You better learn how to cook... the way you eat girl!"  What a blessing it was that I went from my childhood home, in TX, to the Military for the first 9 years of my adult life. I was single, and either ate out, participated in a pot-luck, or enjoyed the fine dining of the many dining facilities on the bases wherever I was stationed. I also ate a lot of cereal and noodles (lol). Within one month of getting out of the military...everything hit the fan 8 years a...

Pcs Season? I Was Just Getting Ready for Santa! Are you Ready for Pcs Season? Hello Friends and Neighbors!Someone said something in passing a few days ago, and I had to think for a moment... They mentioned that, as a Real Estate agent, I should get ready for PCS Season. Well I should correct them... I'm not going anywhere (well...yet). The people moving in and out are the active participants in that party... If going from on part of the United States to the other is a pill, throw an overseas tour in the mix. So your're fighting for orders, need to put your vehicle in POV storage, need to host a yard sale, need to organize a long term storage, or a partial DITY move.... and it just keeps going. Been there, done that. Relocating? So... you are moving or pcs'ing (permenant change of statio...
