Congratulations, Joshua and Fabricio!

From a SOLD sticker on a site map to “here are your keys” took only 179 days. While that is a big number, the days can seem to fly by. Once the hole in the ground is dug, I always recommend that my buyers stop by at least once a week. It’s amazing how much […]

Scarier Than Halloween… or a Movie

They come out of nowhere. They stand by the roadside and stare as you approach. They are unpredictable. That’s right, it’s mating season for our local deer population. We have just entered the three months of biggest concerns; October, November and December. Nearly 55% of the deer-vehicle crashes in the Commonwealth occur in these months […]

The immediate problem with a dirty stairwell is that it’s a giant funnel that directs rainwater to the drain that’s connected to the sump […]

Who Needs a Beach When You Have a Pool In Your Backyard?

The kids may be going back to school, but that doesn’t mean summer is over. The owner’s goal when getting the house ready to sell was to make it “turn key” and I think they succeeded.

The First Word That Came to Mind Was ‘Putrid’

It was that bad. Paula came and got me. I needed to go in one of our bathrooms, as it didn’t smell right. For the love of fresh air, she was right. It was awful. The nasty smell was coming from the exhaust fan in the ceiling. With some quick deductions I was able to […]

The Deer Were Neat, But I Missed The Foxes

Driving up to my buyer’s new house for their walk through, I missed seeing the deer until stepping out of my car. Then suddenly, I noticed a deer standing in the neighbors yard.
