By letting me help you, you help me win an iPad–

Standard

HEEEELLLLLLLLLLLuuuuupppppp!!!

Hi guys! We are having a referral contest at work to win an iPad, I NEED YOUR HELP! I want an iPad something fierce! What’s a referral you ask? If you know of anyone who plans to move anywhere in the world (yes, literally the world, not just the Jacksonville, NC area-which, of course send them my way too!) and would love a friendly, talented, experienced person with a track record to assist them rather than throw a dart at realtor.com or the yellow pages and hope to get lucky. . .I can do that, at no cost to you or your pal. HEEELLLPPP!!! Pour through those friends lists! 🙂 WHEN I win, I’ll of course let you come visit and play with the iPad!

Know someone that wants to move, is thinking about moving. . .might be renting or buying or selling a home?  I don’t care where you live or if a tornado hit your home (we’ve been helping our local victims as well). . .I’d love to help!  I’ll match folks up with the most professional an dhard working follks I can find!

The Cottages at Holly Ridge

Standard

I had to let you know about a beautiful new construction community in the Holly Ridge area, a hop, skip and a jump away from the beach.  The Cottages at Holly Ridge hosted a lovely open house for us agents to preview their beautiful new homes built in sort of a crafstman-like manner.  Attention to detail, fine appointments, great paint colors and cool floor plans await in this planned and peacefull community.  Contact me today for additional information, priced, floor plans and to set up a preview for yourself, though, sadly I am sure the caterers will not be there:

Yes, my last name is changing.

Standard

Hiya folks.

I have been asked enough recently that I thought it worthy a post on the old blog, which, apologies for not devoting time to it in the past few months, ’tis the busy season and my schedule has been swamped.

Long story short, I was married, to a Marine, and, in another life I was a Marine’s daughter (apparently I was a sikorsky groupie in a former life). . .dear old dad is retired and, unfortuantely the marriage didn’t work out.

This summer, once I can catch my breath and find some spare daylight I will be working on the fun process so many ladies love. . .legally changing your name.  I’ll be reverting to my maiden name, Johnson, from Laurence, this summer. . .so. . .thankfully the first name, McKenzie, is a snap to remember–there’s only one of me in the real estate market here in the area.

So, what does this mean to you?  No much, other than I am about to have some snazzy new business cards to hand out soon.  I should have done this a year or two ago, but, in the marketing world, you hate to make changes like this. . .but, it’s the nature of the beast I suppose.  I don’t plan to do this again, the divorce thing, the marriage thing was pretty great for the most part. . .but divorce, I think I’d rather have my wisdom teeth pulled, and a root canal, and be covered with live angry bees first. . .

Long and short, soon I’ll be McKenzie Johnson (again) but it will still be good old hardworking me.

Howdy everyone! I just wanted to say thank you for stopping by. I have had a great response to this blog, you all seem to enjoy the articles, and I think it’s a neat way to get to know one another a little before we’re locked in a car together all day looking for homes or working together to sell your home.

I attended the JBOR meeting last night, and was awarded, along with my team, the Art Furtney team, the “Gold Team Award” in recognition of selling more than 135 “sides” in the last year. A “side” is assisting with the buyer or seller half of a real estate transaction. It was a busy year last year and I have high hopes of helping even more good eggs find their way home this year. Last night was a great opportunity to bump into old buddies that with the slightly slower winter season I don’t have the opportunity to visit with them as much as I would like. I have invited several folks to be guest bloggers on this site, so check back; as I get articles and updates on their various industries I’ll be posting them here. . .you’ll be able to learn more about the mortgage industry, home repair, septic inspection and maintenance and more.

I hope you’re enjoying stopping by, I’m enjoying meeting more and more of you!
