The picture above is one of my favorites. It was taken at my brother-in-laws home while I was holding newborn chick. It always reminds me of the phrase, you are in good hands. It could also say something about being chicken. Both of these ideas were with me yesterday as I underwent some dental su...
I was just thinking of a past movie title, It's a mad, mad, mad world! While the movie was funny, the current real estate market is not. I have never seen so many obstacles in the way of someone buying a home.Low housing inventory levels have been with us for a while now. Well before the pandemic...
Wow. Taking on this months challenge has been a...challenge. Reliving the past is hard. So, in this post I will talk about my professional life and how I ended up where I am today.So, as a senior in high school, I knew I was going to be an engineer. Probably a mechanical engineer. I loved to take...
I guess everyone does have an individual story that is important to who we are today. We are the sum of all our experiences.Mine began in Greensboro NC where I was born, in a snowstorm. I think it snowed more back then. Greensboro was a nice place to grow up. Maybe it was the times, but I spent m...

I found these images and paid to license them for a series of mail...
I had mentioned this earlier in a comment left on another blog, but I have recently moved to using an iMac at work and away from my Windows laptop that I have carried back and forth from home to office for years. My wife, a lifelong Windows user said to me that I have moved to the dark side.I did...
Blind offers are very common in the Atlanta market these days. These offers come from investors or from investment companies and are called blind because they offer to buy without seeing the home first. They plan is to own the home for rental.Several years ago these type offers presented special ...
I know this challenge is about our area where we live, but I spent many years growing up not far from the Atlanta area in North Carolina. I still consider this state my home even though I have not lived there in years. This past week my wife and I spent two days roaming on the Blue Ridge Parkway,...
