JBOR Election and Affiliates night.

A brief explanation.  The last few years have had progressively more fun themes for our annual Jacksonville (NC) Board of Realtor’s election and affiliate night. This year was more or less a night at the Emmy’s/Hollywood evening.  So, folks were encouraged to dress as characters. . .I was thrilled to manage to squeeze into something non-maternity for a night but I think had I done a youtube video of me trying to get into some spanx (spoiler, I wasn’t successful) whilst getting ready would have easily scored more views than that cat riding the roomba.  ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLt5rBfNucc)  Safe to say, especially if you have European heritage and have assisted your Grandmother making sausage, a nine month pregnant woman trying to get into “smooth wear” basically looks like fifty pounds of sausage trying to get into ten pounds of casing, alternate image, a python who ate a deer.

Adapt and overcome!  😉

201 America Court, Jacksonville, NC 28540

Standard
Can you imagine a better address in a military town? Located on a bit of a hill on the corner of a cul de sac is this charmer of a three bedroom, two bath
home. Lovingly maintained with new carpet (with a ten year transferable warranty), new flooring in the kitchen and designer paint colors. A HUGE deck to
enjoy the big privacy-fenced in yard complete with a functioning gate to keep little ones and four legged friends on or off the deck. A storage shed and
fenced vegetable garden make the yard complete. Designer colors throughout the house . Large sectional furniture or a fan of a super entertainment
system? The large family room in this home can accommodate just about anything! Located just off of Dawson Cabin Road, it’s a wonderful commute to the
air station (one left turn at the new stoplight on highway 17), new shopping centers and Stone Bay but enjoy saving on taxes!

Liquid sunshine filled run

Standard

Run and rain on 5/15

Started my run today knowing storms were blowing in. . .tons of sun the first half, wind the whole time. . .and mid way, snapped this as I debated cutting the route short but figured a spring run in the rain would rock.  It did.  I arrived home with a complete training day, soaked to the bone and smiling from ear to ear.  Hope your Sunday rocked as well!

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.
