Shifting market




Things are changing daily and weekly in ANY real estate market and the best analogy I have found is that real estate is just like the weather, it’s very local in nature.  What is true for one zip code or neighborhood isn’t the same for one down the road.  Commercial development, road construction, school zone changes, rates of bank owned homes all can change resale numbers and price per square foot valuations on properties.

Our local Jacksonville/Onslow County/Eastern NC market is affected by these changes as well as the rate of plus ups or cut backs of military bases.  We are blessed with a ton of new construction on Camp LeJeune (new ranges and more, and increased treatment options for wounded warriors and retirees at the local Naval Hospital) and MARSON base improvements as well as new assignments to MCAS New River . . .we aren’t sure what the future holds but we can read market indications and prepare any client to move best with the flow of the market so things are advantageous as possible for the most beneficial outcome.

Cheers to changes and preparing as best we can!

We’re expecting and we moved in together.

Moving in together takes compromise.  I said sure to the giant wall-mounted television as long as I got to do a little accessorizing and things could smell like flowers and baked goods.  It’s made for a pretty darn snazzy shared space.  We’d love for you to drop by for a hello, leave a business card, and check it out!

Baby’s got a brand new bag. . .


So, what had happened was. . .

In a week so much can change, in my case, I’m sitting at a new desk, in a new office, waiting on new business cards.

After a wonderful offer and way too much time spent on pro and con lists over wine with family and friends, I have made the leap.

So, what’s the scoop now?  I am still very much in residential real estate and what ever commercial matters you may have, I have nice folks to pass it off to so I don’t get messy.  Focus is still on residential new construction, pre-sale, custom home builds as well of course as always residential resale assistance on both the buyer and seller side.

I MAY have promised a name change a year to two or both on a post or four about resolutions and what not-but throw a career and office move in triple digit heat in the upswing of the busy season while I’m fostering a wild man of a dog. . .and now navigating an Apple (stop laughing, no, really, stop laughing)-pardon my now extinct skills of right clicking and copy and pasting.  Hold your horses, I swear it’s on the to-do list, in bold italics with highlighter.  Hunting down a friend’s twelve year old to give me some tutorials on the mac in the meantime and while I’m treading water with work.

So, IMAGINE a pretty pic right about ———-> ici.

Looking forward to exciting new things, projects and folks. . .hope we have an opportunity to rub elbows soon, but hopefully in air conditioning. 😉

18 homes, a dozen stair cases and four inch heels


Equals a fun day at the Carolina Plantations Open House.  I think after nearly twenty homes, close to one hundred degree temps and over two hours outside, I get a free pass on the marathon training for the day (side bar note:  should any of your have the name of a reputable rickshaw dealer and/or taxi in the Portland, Oregon area, let me know; that’s the back up plan for the run).  I dare say I made it to a darker shade of off-white today!

Have questions regarding new construction options and the purchase process?  I’m your gal!
