Two new listings hitting this week–is either a home for you?


I have two sets of families moving this summer, and have two new listings to pass along as a result.  Please check out 207 Cambridge Court, 4 bedrooms, 2 baths with a garage and fenced yard on a cul-de-sac off of College. . .walking distance to the golf course and just down the road from the community college and priced below 190k!  Also new to the market is 3 bedroom 2 bath rance home on Fowler Manning Road in Richlands, just off of highway 24/258 near the orange and polk doted farm stand famouse for pummpkins and mums in the fall and fabulous jam!  Priced below 180k with almost immediate occupancy so buyers won’t have to wait a month out in a hotel until the deal closes!  Check out throughout the week as they get added

So fancy it takes three phones


to help me manage contacts and my life. . .but generally I only multi tast after on that level after I dump a brand new freshly updated iphone into a (clean) toliet. . .lesson learned, again, phones don’t swim well.  It’s taking some time to reload everything into an old back up phone and living without my ipod has been frustrating, living without music is unthinkable. . .and that means I have to actually communicate with folks at the gym rather than tune them out. . .ear buds are the ultimate do not distrub sign.  So, out of sorts but getting things worked out and thank you for your patience, I know it’s taken a day or two to get some calls returned as various messages went to different voice mail boxes.  Weeks like this make me think of the dark ages in real estate, when property info sheets were on 3×5 cards and you had to run all over town to pick up and drop off keys to get into homes to preview and show them. . .and email!  I don’t think you realize how “on the grid” you are until you’re off. . . I easily check email a dozen times a day, facebook to keep up with family, friends, classmates and folks I have met through a dozen moves in my life and past and present clients. . .off the grid I found myself at Bed Bath and Beyond wandering aisles, wondering what pals were up to and how many emails awaited me after-hours at the office and just how badly did I need a sham wow? 

Hope all of you are well, and, enjoying dry and fully functional cells/PDAs. . .it’s baby season, I’m seeing many of you at baby showers this season, and seeing how cute your nurseries are in the homes I sold you. . .and a wedding or four (?!). . .summer this year has been such a full and wonderful season.  My best to you and yours!

Yet again number one. . .


Sooo, quickie update, yes, my firm was number one for all of last year for the whole of Onslow County and for the first quarter of this year as well and real estate is going just swimmingly here on Onslow County, which, generally, being known as “On-Slow” County is a feat in itself.

I was lucky enough to break away from work for the weekend to see two great pals get married up near Beaufort (NC) at a loverly new Golf Course community. . .which is looking a little slow to sell, lots of vacant home sites. . .sad that I can’t turn the work thing off at times. . . but looked like a pretty course so if you’re ever in Beaufort, I have a place to send you!  A group of gal pals and I are finally getting around to planning a group golf lesson or two. . .we have such crazy schedules I don’t know when it will happen, but we have more than one instructor who has been voluntold to be there. . .Hi Carl (in particular), sorry you told us what a great coach you were before you knew you were getting nominated!  I promise to not wear pink, Lisa on the other hand is on the look out for pink clubs. . .embrace it, it’s going to happen. . .I’ll bring a cooler . . . 🙂

Hope your summer is going well all. . .slather on the sun screen and if you’re enjoying a season of lowlights, a fabulous beach trick to try that will leave you looking like an extra from a Soul Glow Commercial but your hair in fabulous shape is to take an empty and clean spray bottle and dump in one third sunblock, one third hair conditioner and one third water, shake and spray all over your noggin. . . cheers to a season of not looking like a q-tip!


Cindy, girl, I am resisting the urge to post your entire email  . . .  I had to put Goober the wonder-dog-great-dane down last week after thirteen years.  A very tough decision indeed, he was a Fairfax County SPCA rescue dog (to anyone reading this, if you are considering adding a four-legged friend to your family, please consider your local shelter first, a rescued animal never forgets!) who has had MANY adventures.  My thoughts are with you ANNNNNDDDD as usual, though later than planned, I am posting your latest event info. 

think of Robin Williams movie while reading that opening.
