My phone rang bright and early this morning. On the other end of the phone, a lady said "Do you want to sell my house?" Well, certainly I do. (Let's find out more about the mystery caller).Turns out, it was a nonagenarian (I'll wait while you look it up) calling to sell the home she had lived in ...
It doesn't take much to make a good first impression, right? A little effort can go a long way, regardless of the situation. Today my buyer client saw her new home "in person" for the very first time.  We went under contract about five weeks ago. Since the purchaser lived several states away, we ...
Here's your chance to move into an established neighborhood and add your own personal touches. While this 3 bedroom/2.5 bath home in Hidden Hills is structurally sound and move-in ready, the seller prefers not to make any repairs or cosmetic updates. The price is reflective of this.This is a spli...
Don't miss the opportunity to own a 4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom home in Kensington Subdivision, a gated community located in Flowood off Lakeland Drive. This home is located on a quiet cul-de-sac and has one of the larger lots in the neighborhood.This move-in ready home is 3 years old and has many cust...
Excitement has been swirling around the construction and Grand Opening of the new Aldi Supermarket on Lakeland Drive in Flowood.  Since today was Opening Day, I had to see what the buzz was all about.

I needed to take a couple of CE classes to complete my Continuing Education requirements for the next two years, so I hopped online and promptly ordered the required Agency and Law Classes. I had 90 days to complete th...
My little plot of land in Brandon MS provides a very small space for a garden. In fact, when I moved here a few years ago, absolutely nothing was planted in the back yard. The front was filled with crepe myrtles, Indian Hawthorn, Lorapetalum,  and a Japanese Maple; all of which I loved, but the b...
Today was Realtor Open House Day in my neighborhood. Three homes were on preview, all priced between $399,000 - $420,000.As I was leaving the first home on the tour, a car pulled up and rolled down the window. The driver asked if I was showing the home or if it was open to anyone, as the Realtor ...
Step into the time machine and travel to the mid 70's. Young and in love, my boyfriend and I were engaged to be married. I'm not sure how the topic of buying a house came up; I'm not sure we even discussed it. My parents had always owned a home, so we assumed we would own a home one day, too.My d...
We closed yesterday on this gorgeous 3 BR/2 Bath home in Rankin County. I'm happy and thankful for my client, but it is a mixed blessing because my friend/seller is moving four hours away.The home sold with multiple offers (yes!) and we accepted the one most favorable to the seller. Price isn't t...
