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…

Take the Train: From Richmond to New York City







What an amazing trip we just got home from. We weren't in New York City too long because we have other engagements we need to attend too but it was fun and exciting. Douglas wanted to go to New York and see the Yankees play the Red Socks for her sixteenth birthday. Although she is technically not sixteen until July 16th, this past weekend was when the Yankees were playing the Red Socks. We took the train from Staples Mill up to New York City. She hasn't ever been in a train so this was an new experience. 

Amtrak is a wonderful way to travel with a spacious leg room, air conditioned cars (bring a sweater) and a bathroom! So nice to allow someone else to do the driving and be able to sit back and relax. A lot of time during travel times, I drive and Joe works next to me on his laptop. I was able to sit back and see the scenery and I even watched a movie, No Strings Attached going up and Summer Rental coming back. 

We purchased drinks from the cafe car since we forgot our cooler in the refrigerator at home- It is ready to go again! On the way up we packed Farm Fresh's Spicy Fried Chicken, which is amazing, and homemade pasta salad. I'll share the recipe with you soon. Super simple and delicious.
