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…

Thirteen Candles: Sage's Birthday @ Kerr Lake








Last weekend was Sage's 13th Birthday! Wow, it seems like yesterday she was born with her mega, humongous eyes and tiny body! She was the smallest baby we had. My doctor thought she was going to be over eight pounds but she wound up weighing 7'2.

We packed up the car and hooked up the boat trailer. Her friends, Carolyn, MK, and Chloe rode along with Joe and Douglas while I followed behind with my mom in her car along with Ava and our dogs. Everything was going along just grandly until the right boat trailer tire blew out and we wound up on the side of 64, east of Richmond. Luckily everyone was fine and thank goodness for VDOT showing up five minutes later with a flashing caution sign and orange cones to warn those of a mishap ahead.

While Douglas and Joe waited on help, the girls piled into my mom's car and we snuggly rode to our destination. Once we arrived and unpacked, the girls explored and an hour later Joe and Douglas were there. We feasted on Bojangles Chicken (which is amazing by the way), mashed potatoes, mac-n-cheese and biscuits. I ordered the 20 Piece Jumbo Tailgate box. I have to say this is the largest box of chicken I have ever ordered but when you have a crew, you need stuff like this. I'm telling you, if you haven't eaten Bojangles and have the opportunity to, DO! The gravy is perfect and their mac-n-cheese is the best from a fast food joint I've ever had. Sorry, KFC.

The rest of the of the weekend consisted of seeing the largest non-poisonous spider we've ever seen, setting our eyes on two copperheads, enjoying a fire both nights, watching the girls be thrown around on the tube and getting up on the kneeboard, and Sage skiing as she normally does. Water sports are the best.
