The last few months I have felt like I have been riding the bench professionally during a great game. I managed to pull it together for last night’s festivities which, despite the contractions and sore feet and being overheated, made me feel a little more myself for a night which was a nice change of pace. Everyone is joking that “once the baby arrives, you’ll be exhausted and it will slow you down”- they’ve obviously not experienced a difficult pregnancy.
Looking forward to launching some new projects and ideas and having my new right-hand-man by my side. Subletting my body for the last year has given me time to fill MANY notebooks. . .big plans and goals for the future!
Today is also my birthday. I had a talk with baby Garrett- included the philosophy my folks instilled that early is on time, on time is late and late is unforgivable. I buffered the delivery and birthday conversation with the pointer that with both his father and my birthdays close to the due date, it would be lovely if everyone kept separate special days. Last week we made it through a harvest moon, a packed labor and delivery department at the hospital and his father’s birthday. This week I cleared my docket and rearranged a few big plans in anticipation since we are making very slow and steady delivery process. The average first birth is fifteen hours, so reaching mid-day on my birthday I feel I’m safe to guess that we are in the clear but ANY TIME from here on out would be lovely. Baby G, I’ll take a rain check for a day with no nausea, and getting to take a quick nap on my stomach as a present from you. 🙂
Hope you have big things brewing too! Cheers to planning for an amazing sis-bang-boom to send out 2013 and to putting things in place and in motion for an even more amazing 2014!
Almost complete with the name change but finally have a few official documents back so I can expedite things like changing them with NAR (National Association of Realtors), NCAR (North Carolina Association of Realtors) etc. . .the parts of name change house keeping that aren’t all that fun.
New business cards will be in the works, and even MORE incentive to get back in shape ASAP- new head shots and thank HEAVENS for Pinterest and SECRET boards! Inspiration and outfit ideas but looking forward to no more edema and perhaps finding something new-mommy yet professional. We shall see!
But the not-so-new-news is that it’s officially McKenzie Johnson again- and working on LOTS of domain name overhauls and the KW phone app etc. which had t wait until the name change became official.
Hope you’re well!
Check out the public portion of my Pinterest boards @ http://www.pinterest.com/mckenzie27/boards/ I passed 1,000 followers this week- so my late night and early am pregnancy insomnia seems to be helping “win friends and influence people”- or, at the least, find folks with equally annoying sleeping patterns OR who also spend time waiting in driveways for clients to show homes and pin a bit. 😉
A quick tour of Mimosa Bay in Sneads Ferry. Not the best quality (I’m not super talented with technology) but it’s very helpful especially if you’re home hunting from outside our area and are planning a move.
Feel fee to contact me for additional information, completion dates, prices, floor plan options and more! McKenzie 910.554.0761 direct/text or email McKenzieSellsHomes@gmail.com and vista

Don’t forget, the end of November makes the close of the firs time home buyer’s $8,000 tax incentive offer. As a National Association of Realtors, we are pushing to extend this deadline making this amazing offer avail. to move folks. . .also, there’s a push to extend the offer to repeat buyers AND to increase the amount from $8,000 to %16,000 but baby steps, it would be nice just to extend the intial offer.
If you’re in the market for a home, rates are at amazing FIXED rates (my last few buyers have been securing loans around 5% and 5.25% for 30 years with no down payment) and if you close by Thanksgiving, you qualify for the first time home buyer tax credit. . .closings are taking a little longer these days as new settlement statements are rolling out so plan on 30-45 days rather than an overly optimistic 30 to get the deal done.
Then walk up and shake mine!
I am looking to add to my business, grow my client base and of course, sell some more homes! I would love to talk opportunities with you, the great benefits of working with a full service office and the collection of marketing techniques and web exposure that will knock your socks off.
If you’re a contractor, I’d love your contact information, at times I work with clients looking to buy a home that needs more love than they can give and need help with additions or major overhauls or sellers getting their homes caught up on neglected maintenance and need a reputable person to contact. I only work with licensed and insured professionals, so everyone is protected during the project. . .
So, if you or someone you know is looking for someone like me, pass my name and contact info along. Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, New River Marine Corps Air Station, Camp Geiger, and Camp Johnson is growing in leaps and bounds with new troops and families arriving every day. . .and support staff. New businesses are popping up around town, Jacksonville is having a bit of a Renaissance. . .give me a call today to become a part of it.
