Cheers to a wonderful 2010, can’t wait to see what adventures 2011 will hold!


May your walls know joy, may every room hold laughter and every window open to great possibility.

Thank you all for an amazing year.  Some home sales were easy as pie, some a little complicated and some as tough as giving birth to a baby rhino (not sure, but imagine that it would be slow and painful, so I felt a handy analogy).  Thank you for all the close-call home sales too and I hope the stars align in the new year– after your promotion, baby’s arrival, graduation, marriage, retirement, divorce. 

I’m happy to count myself as ons of the few Realtors in the world who is still sitting at their desk during the holiday season responding to past, present and future clients.  It’s been a busy year and I’m already rolling into the new year swinging.

This year has been full of questions about the state of the economy, real estate, and the American Dream.  Part of being good at what you do is know when not to do what you love to do.  I’m thrilled with the homes and folks I have connected with this year but also the homes that didn’t sell because it simply wasn’t the right time for them to buy, pcs orders changed,  bad mix of risk and reward.  If you need more info about the local economy, want to talk shop. . .I’m always available, well, maybe too available which is on the resolutions list for the new year, but happy to help you figure out if now is a good time for you to buy or sell. . .or rent or lease. . .or look at an option contract. 

It’s the fit that counts and there is something out there for everyone.  I hope to help you find it.

With warm wishes for you and yours this holiday season!  May your new year be filled with even more fun adventures and great memories than the year almost past.


Robert Burns Dinner!!!!


Tomorrow night is the 8th annual Robert Burns Dinner at the Country Squire Inn in Wallace, NC.  YOu can find more information at the Inn’s website:  http://www.CountrySquireInn.com .

2009 is the 250th anniversary of Robert Burns birth.

The Following, and Menu are directly quoted from the Inn’s site:

We think this is an evening you do not want to miss. Robert Burns was a Scottish poet who wrote for the common man and was not widely acclaimed until his death. Burns supper celebrations are held worldwide in January to honor Burns. The lowly dish of “Haggish” was immortalized by Burns and is always served on this occasion. It is presented with great ceremony and will be led in by Pipe Major Andrew Simpson. This is a fun occasion where you can experience a “wee bit of Scottish Culture” (or lack there of), an excuse to wear you kilt, if you have one hiding in the closet, and generally just have fun and fellowship with a group of people who enjoy getting together whether they have a good reason or not.
