Bud and I just returned from our vacation to winter weather here in beautiful Kennesaw, GA. We are glad to be back but hated saying goodbye to our children and grandson, family and friends in sunny (and warm) New Zealand. It was a wonderful trip.
While there, we actually took a little side trip to a small resort area call Hahei, on the Coromandel Peninsula located on the North Island of NZ. It was one of the most beautiful places I have had the privilege of visiting in my life. We spent about five days there and then we went to the farm where our daughter and her husband and our Grandson live.
We actually got to see a real working dairy farm with 440 head of cattle, drink yummy unpasteurized milk in our coffee everyday and enjoy the perfect weather.…

This will just make you laugh at our Southern-ness…
Since our home is in Kennesaw GA and our Grand kids live out of state, we get to hear a lot of stories from their parents second hand; but this one is so good I just had to share it with you.
While talking to my Son-in-Love the other day he was telling us how our 3 ½ year old Grandson had fallen off a stool. He had hit his back and was explaining to his dad where it hurt and just how bad it was hurting too. He said, “It really hurt dad…” Then he looked up, rolled his eyes thinking about what to say and said, “…like the chickens.”
We all laughed ‘til we cried... Maybe it’s just the love of grandchildren; maybe it’s just really funny. At any rate we wanted to share with our readers.
P.S. For all you…

Here is something to take into consideration before you get that flu shot. Looking for a home or trying to sell one doesn't have to be work all of the time. See if this will tickle your funny bone.
Kinda makes you think, doesn't it?

You have just sold your home after enduring it being on the market for all that time and the home inspector is on the way! What is the process and what should we do? Glad you asked!
When an inspector completes the assessment, the results go to the purchaser of your home with the recommendation to have a licensed person come out and fix the items found. When the buyer sees that recommendation the thought is firmly implanted in their mind that they must have a “licensed whoever” correct the problem. The inspection becomes part of the contract for all intents and purposes, and even if you are perfectly capable of fixing the “whatever” they found, they will want to see a receipt where you paid to have it fixed. I’ve seen this same thing take place thousands…

I recently had a birthday and had such a wonderful time that I thought I would blog about it and since you all are dying to know what kind of cake I had, I thought I would share this with you.
We went to the Marietta Diner for our dessert which is supposed to be a famous place of old, in Marietta. It is located near Sam’s and the Big Chicken on 41. We didn't eat it there, since we had just finished a delicious dinner of Veal Gorgonzola at Vincent’s on Barrett Parkway, (there’s a plug for you Paul!) so we just got the cake to go and went home to eat it.
It was a little after nine when we got home so I missed Skype-ing (that was such a bummer) with my grandbabies. But that’s another story.
At any rate, we walked into this big building with about a…

Jenny (not her real name) called me off my website. This call was my first contact with her and she told me she loved our website, was sure I was the person to help her and that she was now ready to go out and see some homes she had already seen online. She told me she had been doing a lot of research and had found a couple of homes in the $500,000 price point that she was completely in love with—she was sure that one of them was “her new home.”
We talked some more and I asked her if she had her Lender Letter. She basically said, “What’s that?” Uh oh…But, you never know; this might turn out okay.
I explained to her the most important thing to do to begin with is to be prequalified for your loan with a lender. It only takes about 5 minutes on the phone.…

One of the best ways to get someone to look at your home is curb appeal. I have taken many buyers out to view Marietta homes and had them refuse to even look at the house because they did not like what they saw from the street. Needless to say this goes for Kennesaw homes and other cities we serve too.
You want to be sure to have your lawn cut, edged and your flower beds weeded. Fresh pine straw is always great. If you have trees that have created bare spots just put pine straw around the tree and turn that bare spot into an island. Also, if you have small areas were there is low drainage (a wet spot) you can always plant bushes and then pine straw it. The bushes will look pretty, drink up the water and it looks naturally beautiful. Just remember pine…

Are you thinking about Selling your Home? Need some Professional Advice?
I know there must be hundreds of articles on the market today about selling your home. One of the most important things to remember is that, as a seller, (and believe me, I am no different) we must look at our home without emotion and see what a potential buyer would see. For example, the other day I looked at the wallpaper and border in our Jack and Jill bathroom and thought, that’s not bad—it still looks good. Then a few days later I saw the same paper in a house I was showing and realized just how dated it was; in fact, I thought it looked awful. That just goes to show you we can become so emotionally attached to our home and the decorating we have done that we can’t see…
