Don't Wait Buyers--- If It Feels Right--- It is.

I love helping buyers find their dream home. I don't always love when my buyers don't see the right one, right away. As a Realtor, many times we "know" the house before you do. A great buyer's agent should ask enough questions about your likes and dislikes and get to know how you live in a home so that when "The One" comes along we are ready to jump as quickly as you are!

The worst is when we "know" it and you don't see it until it is under contract.

Of course, I would never tell you you are missing out because that is rude and it isn't my job to talk you into a home. The thing is, this typically becomes the turning point in home buying. This is when you as the buyer realize that sometimes waiting is the worst thing you can do.

Like the time when I know I had to have this Leopard Coat I LOVED but knew husband doesn't care for animal prints so I left it at the store. Then I thought about it all night. I even dreamed about it. The nex…

Fall Trends We Can All Live With

Fashion suffers a backlash after all the trends from a season fuse into many seasons. They begin to mix into one pile of way the hell too much. After all the nail art, the smoky eyes, the red lips, the rings and bracelets that cover every inch of your body and the shoes that are a mile high, people get irritated and drowsy on all the items it takes to pull one outfit together. 

This season's fashion is a blank slate. Start fresh. Take off your polish. Scrub your eyes and lips clean. Unwrap all the wrappings on your arms and place the jewelry back in its pearly case to rest for awhile. Easy, breezy fall is here. Wrap up in a cozy scarf; pull on a pair of silky socks and sip on a pumpkin latte for a bit. Shopping season is in front of us so be thankful a second and be rest assured, fall trends are easy to accomplish.



Wrap Up in Scarf: With so many selections, scarves are bits of a fabric store you can test out each and every day.  Roll out of bed, throw on a t-shirt, a pair of jeans and add your flat boots to your feet. Dress it up with stripes one day, skulls the next and florals the following. Instead of dropping $15 or more dollars on each scarf, head up to your local fabric store and purchase half a yard of fabric. You can mix and match while spending little to nothing on a new look everyday and what women doesn’t want a new look every day!



Strip Your Nails to Bare Minimum: Nail Art is dead. It’s time to move on. Don’t worry, it will come back around as all does in fashion. For now enjoy running a clear coat of paint over your nails and calling it a day. Instead of spending hours in the nail salon how about an hour in the massage parlor instead, seems like a winner to me!



Single Process Hair Is Back: Pick a color and stick with it. Ombre was a nice look for awhile but the time has come to say farewell and highlighting your hair was so 90’s. Super blonde is in as well as super brown, black and red. No burgundy or maroon, just red!



Pack Away All Those Rings and Wraps: Our wrists and hands are tired of wearing all that metal, fabric and beading.  Bare skin is back and there is nothing wrong with that. Classic skin is bare skin.  Let the jingle belong to the dog and cat.

Fall is a time for relaxation and fashion should be just that. Take a breather, let go of things not meant be and plan for your next big thing. It is much simpler to begin anew when your surroundings are quiet.
