Clients first

I would never have imagined that thirty years after I sold my first home that I would still be enjoying it today.  It certainly has been a rewarding career and I am so very thankful to you my customers and clients.  I always believed that if money or success became more important than people that it would be time for me to make a change. I’m very happy to say that is not the case and if you are looking for a real estate professional I would like the opportunity to discuss being your agent.

If you’ve run out of space within your closets, why not look into cabinets in order to store things, You don’t need to redesign your home to get them installed, and you may have them custom made to fit your home’s style. 20 more words

Lazy Acres

Lazy Acres, if you’re looking for a beachfront property this probably is not where you’ll find it. Street, avenues, lanes, and others have names that are part of the address to identify the location of a property. Urban areas have been assigning names since the 1800’s in the USA . Rural areas have converted the Rural Route box numbers to Street addresses, in recent years to work hand in hand with the implementation of enhanced 911 systems.

There are many reasons streets are given a name from acknowledging a local family to the name of a flower growing wild on the property.
In the real estate world, you wouldn’t think a name would matter to a purchaser as long as the area, price and terms were just what they are looking for. From time to time a person may feel squirmish about a street name just the same as they may feel about a house number or what direction the front door faces.

Some cities keep it simple by numbering the streets in sequence. Others, like Atlanta can totally turn you in circles with Peachtree North, south-east and west. Thank goodness for GPS.

Inquisitive buyers like to know the backstory behind a street name and if you dig around enough you can probably hear a good tale. Developers today often take their time to assign names to a new community.  Selecting a theme that has a connection to the land or landowner sets the pace for effective marketing.
The background story can then be shared for years to come.

One of my favorites is the simple story of Keylime Drive.
The Developer had a weekend getaway on Amelia Island Georgia. She thought it was so beautiful and had Keylime pie at dinner for dessert. There you have it, Amelia and Keylime Drives in the new neighborhood.

A few years ago I documented by video some of the communities that I worked on and assigned names.  As word got out about my street naming from time to time interesting stories would be told to me.  Here is one from a small city in the metro area of Savannah Georgia.

Happy home shopping…:)  I hope you find your Happy lane 🙂

New and Old

I can’t help but to ask myself if I am prepared to accept the changes of the age of technology.  Anything that saves time is assumed to be good.

Scooter options….using pedal power and smart cars…downsizing

“There is no necessity to seek for anything better than metallic brown, venetian red, or red oxide as a pigment, and pure linseed oil as the vehicle, as a suitable paint for tin roofs”

Dormers and Skylights

 

Thanks Becky for the challenge.  I took this photo on my visit to Nuremberg, Germany.

I’m used to seeing the dormers and skylights just not this many on one structure.  Found this interesting.
