Today is the Festival of Flight at Prestwick Elementary School located in the city of The Colony in Denton, Texas. No pets or alcohol are allowed for this event but fun is for free!  I remember the fun times when I ordered kites for my Girl Scout Troop long ago. My daughter and the girls were free to laugh, run, watch kites fly, and compete with each other. Oh, I remember how much fun they had laughing and rolling around on the ground when strings got tangled up together. We didn't have "balloon animals, ballistic swing rides, wizzer rides, a Bird Exhibit, craft kits, juggling, turbo tubs, or food trucks," but we sure had a lot of fun!  My Scout is all grown up. Now she Kite Surfs on Land & Sea. I watched her Kite flying in Switzerland and Kite Surfing in Sardinia in the Mediterranean S...

Sometimes, I look upon what people do and how our culture has changed and I shake my head. Just the other night, I had friends over to my house. Friend “A” said something that honestly, could have been worded kinder. It could have been expressed in a less inflammatory manner. Friend “B” then responded to “A” and used highly aggressive and even condescending language to do it. Next thing you know they are arguing about who said what and who is right. I eventually broke the conversation by wondering aloud if the Backstreet Boys may do a tour this year (something completely unexpected and even humorous just to break the pattern and reset the conversation). Now they both spoke amicably the rest of the evening. But what impressed me was the next day. The next day “B” sent me a text message n...

There Are No Participation Trophies in a Brisk Market While one buyer is trying to figure out the terms and conditions of an offer that needs to be submitted quickly to meet critical deadlines, another one is charging full ahead with a no contingency contract, getting the attention of a seller. Educating clients on how to react to a brisk market is crucial, where sellers demand and get full price or more through multiple offer bidding wars. Some people are renting motel rooms in anticipation of eventually taking 'home' the prize. Buyers must be ready to perform quickly at the advice of their trusted agent to secure a property. Any hesitation whatsovever can cost them an acceptance. This is what is known as a seller's market and because of high demand, offering over list price is trendin...

 Greater Charlotte's Housing Market Continues To Surge...... If You Need Help Selling Your Home Fast & At Top Dollar......  Nina Hollander Can Help You Sell Fast At The Highest Price! Wondering just how fast homes are selling in the Greater Charlotte market this spring? The average days on market for Charlotte area homes were just 20 days in April. This is down 48.7% from 39 days in April one year ago and down 4 days from the most recent month.  And with inventory down 66.8% year-over-year and the months supply of homes just 0.6 months (compared with 2.1 months one year ago) Charlotte area homes are selling about as fast as they are coming on the market, despite a 32.5% increase in new listings in April 2021 compared with April 2020. Keep in mind that this increase in new listings year-...

  Mortgage pre-approval means a lender has reviewed your finances and, based on factors like your income, debt, and credit history, determined how much you're qualified to borrow. Being pre-approved for a loan can give you clarity while planning your homebuying budget, confidence in your ability to secure a loan, and a competitive edge in a bidding war. In todays market, connecting with a lender to get pre-approved may be the game-changer that helps you secure your dream home.

Thank you Rono Williams for your original blog.  A kitchen overhaul sounds pretty exciting, especially when you have moved into a new house or hoping to start a family soon. In case you’re a little concerned about the budget, then you must know that an average kitchen renovation cost runs between $20,000 and $50,000 if not more! DIY Kitchen Basics for You Now, the secret to a statement kitchen is not always a huge bankroll. You can still achieve the cooking corner of your dreams without having spent a king’s ransom or even lowering your expectations. If you’re starting from the ground up, here’s a basic, step-by-step guide for you: 1. Chalk out an in-detail plan. If it’s more than just fixing the DIY kitchen cabinets or painting the wall, begin by working on the kitchen layout. 2. Choos...

Matthew 7:11“If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask them.” Being a child of God has its benefits. If you were taught it was a burden to follow God remember the new covenant with Christ took that away. Jesus died to remove that separation.  The evil or sin that people often do now, is the evil of wrong thinking.  NOT believing in Gods best. Worrying, doubting, fearing that our troubles will overtake us and something less than Gods best will happen.  Do you believe? Can you conceive the good God has for you?  Start now by picturing a desire that is on your heart…what is it?  Close your eyes and picture it.  Feel it as part of you.  If it works better to write it out and desc...
