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…

Stay: Hale Springs Inn



 Want to stay somewhere Presidents of the USA have stayed? Well that is just what we did on our last trip to Rogersville, Tennessee. Usually we stay with family or at the Comfort Suites but this time we wanted to try out a new scene. The Hale Springs Inn is a wonderful addition to the town.

Situated on Main Street,  the Hale Springs Inn has undergone many renovations and owned by many different people. After the Inn closed in the 80's it was bought and restored to its 1820-1830's appearance. The Rogersville Heritage Association now runs the Inn. In fact much of the furniture that resides in the Inn is on loan from many of the families that reside in the town. 

What I find really awesome though, because the town wanted the inn to survive they opened a bar. Now you may think what's the deal with opening a bar in a hotel? Well, before this bar, there was not a bar anywhere in Rogersville and the whole county was dry. You had to drive quite aways to get a drink in any resturaunt and you better make sure you had brought wine when you came to visit. So now, in 2014 you can have a drink where presidents stayed a long, long time ago. 

What We Loved: The essence of the hotel, the bed was super comfortable, the rooms are huge, the cleaning staff was super nice, the decorations for Christmas were superb, we chose a room in the back of the hotel, the location.

We We Didn't Love: The breakfast was less than superb, my eggs were cold and the server was not great and one lady who worked the front desk acted like she didn't like us being there.
