Please consider – there is fresh paint both inside and outside, new laminate flooring and carpet, light fixtures, bathroom […]
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.

When In Doubt – Call Your Realtor
Every now and again, I get a really interesting phone call. This morning I got one from Stacy (not her real name) asking if I sold a house at 1234 Oak St in Ashburn (not the real address). She was really interested to know if the seller was Bob Jones (not his real name). It […]

Do You Remember How Excited You Were to Get Your Driver’s License?
Getting your wheel-to-wheel Competition License is all that and then some. Earlier this year Jake got his.

After […]
