If an older person, asks you for help, will you stop what you are doing,  to help?In my travels, all over the world, I have seen so much respect in the orient towards older people. For example, while visiting Japan, I have seen so much respect towards the elderly.  If someone in Japan, has gray hair or white hair, people respect the elderly in a way, that is most impressive to me.  I also have seen the young in Japan bend over out of respect to say thank you to the elderly.  Is this the way, it should be all over the world?  I believe it should.  Should everyone be respected?  Absolutely yes!  I am just saying the elderly have paid their dues in life and they are due the utmost respect and we should all give the elderly the utmost respect.  If the elderly ask for help, would you stop wh...

Who do you think I ran into today?  Oh, my goodness! Today, can you guess, who I ran into, while performing Air Sampling and testing in a Mint Hill Home?  If you guessed, Mr. Rabbit, you would have guessed correctly.  If you guessed, Hugh Hefner, I am sorry  That answer, would be incorrect. Let me tell you, what happened.  I was opening up a door to an upstairs room and I was startled by this big rabbit!  I about jumped out of my skin.  Mr. Rabbit, was dressed to impress and he put me to shame.  He was all decked out, to say the least.  I have seen a lot of things in my time as a Home Mold Inspector, who scans homes for wall and ceiling moisture issues and air sampling,  to name a few things.  Mr. Rabbit, made my day today and I promised him that I would be back again, if the client inv...

Ranch Home UNDER CONTRACT in the Heart of Mount HollyImpeccably updated 3-bedroom, 2-bath ranch home in the heart of downtown Mount Holly hit the market last Friday and by Saturday, we had multiple Offers. Buyers wrote wonderful love letters and sellers asked not to see them until after acceptance so as not to select their buyer with a bias.  The sellers made the decision, based on strength of Offer. What that includes is strong Due Diligence Fee (how much skin the buyers are willing to put in the game), clean Offer, strong purchase price and reputable lender with full approval in place prior to buyer shopping for their new home. Yes, it made a HUGE difference! What did the buyers love about this adorable ranch home? It is filled with character and charm throughout – from the renovated ...

Another Lake Wylie Gem UncoveredI love showing and selling, listing and selling in the Lake Wylie area. The area is just booming right now as we watch the Steele Creek/Lake Wylie area grow and expand beyond what we thought the area would be 40 years ago! The first home I bought when I moved to Charlotte was in this area and we literally felt like we lived in the Boonies! Now Lake Wylie/Steele Creek is remarkably close-in with a shorter commute to Uptown than most areas of Charlotte. We took this shot during our inspection last week - the house is situated on a great lot but, the previous owners had allowed the brush/trees to fill in the majority of the backyard, leaving very little of the spectacular lake views visible from the home. BOY, did we ever uncover a hidden gem for our client!...

 Sold in Dallas In Gaston County: 2532 Blue Moss Drive 2532 Blue Moss Drive in Dallas, North Carolina is a closed sale courtesy of Nina Hollander. What do you do for a client who is a professional chef, who asks you to find him a home that is within 30 minutes of his workplace, has a cook's kitchen, is totally move-in ready, and has at least a one car garage and all this for less than $200,000 in a metro area where the average sale price of homes is just over $270,000 and where inventory of homes is tight, tight, tight and virtually non-existent for homes under $200,000? What could I do but roll up my sleeves and get to work to find my client (who's been camping out on a friend's sofa, since I had sold his home in October in under one month) a home -- and one sooner rather than later. I...
