JUST SOLD & CLOSED BY NINA HOLLANDER6532 POTTER ROAD IN MATTHEWS, NC There's no better feeling than finding a long-standing client her dream home on her dream property! And who would have expected to find this remodeled, full brick ranch home built in 1959 on 2 acres in Matthews on the border of Weddington with a 1,234 square foot barn plus a detached brick building that was already set up as an office (simply perfect for my client who works from home). It was love at first sight for my client when we went to see the home the first day it came on the market.And while you might think you're in the middle of the countryside, 6532 Potter Road is but 15 minutes from Rea Farms, Waverly, and I-485 and just 20 or so minutes from the upscale Ballantyne area. Not to be overlooked are the top-rat...

Who remembers your first pager?  I had my first pager in 1985.  My pager number was 529-3880.  This number no longer works but someone would call it and input their phone number and I would call them back. If you try to call this number and try to contact me now, it is not the way to get in touch with me.  It seems like just yesterday that I had my first pager and then this led to the huge bag phone that was first 4 watts.  Who remembers these days?  Who had one, besides David Snell?  I would be on a job and I got a beep or a page and I would use the customer's landline to call the client back.  Using a pager or beeper was very inconvenient to say the least.  Wink. My name is David Snell and I own a company called Executive Restoration and Certified Mold Inspection with Sample and testi...

Last Saturday at 2 a.m, I got a call about a Water Damagein Indian Trail.  The client called many Water Damage companies and no one picked up her call, even though my client called other emergency service Water Damage Companies.  If you are an emergency service company please pick UP  the call or I will take the call and do the Water Damage job.  No worries.   I am back into Water Damage and Water Removal! What do you think I did?  I took the call even though I was getting ready to go to bed. I got to the job about 3 a.m and starting extracting water, spraying as well as mopping up hard surfaces and spraying.  I mopped all hard surfaces like 3 times to make sure the surfaces were clean.  I then placed 3 air movers to dry out the carpet as well as the hard surface flooring. This couple w...
