They're all around!  Signs of Spring that is.  Birds are chirping & frogs are singing.  I even heard the Spring Peepers out in the wet woods behind my back yard just late last week.  Heck, Spring is even in their name!     And of course flowers are blooming, like these little wild violets in one of my customer's yard.       And there are more signs, like these hyacinth in our front garden.             But the most sure sign of all, the one that you KNOW Spring is here when you see it is this:  when your handyman's van has to put on it's sunglasses.   Spring is here!  As of 7:21pm (EDT) today!  Enjoy it!

I can not tell you how many times I have been in stores or restaurants and I hear tourists asking for directions to the Wake Forest University.  When they find that although they may BE in Wake Forest the University is approximately 2 hours away......Talk about frustrated!  Sometimes they even get mad like it was a whole conspiracy by the town to mislead them.......Well, here is a little history lesson regarding Wake Forest and well, Wake Forest..... Way, way back in February of 1834 (told you it was way back) the very first class enrolled in what was then called the Wake Forest College.  When the Civil War started all the students but 5 were obligated to the Confederate Army.  That huge loss of student body forced the school to close in 1862. The school reopened in 1866 and thrived ove...

Every week I update the Foreclosure Report for Wake Forest, Rolesville and parts of North Raleigh.  I upload the report to my website where it is available for download for FREE!  This report includes single family homes as well as townhomes and ALL price points are included. Having personally toured many of the homes on the list I can say that the majority are in great shape and the prices are fantastic!  Buying a Foreclosure, Short Sale or an REO does take a bit more research, knowledge and patience than other homes and I am here to help guide you through the process.  If you have any questions about purchasing one of these homes please let me know and I can provide you with answers needed to make a sound decision.  You can also find some definitions and assistance on my webpage, Wake...

If you think all fasteners are the same, you're wrong.  Just ask Jay Markanich.   For instance, staples work great for things like carpet pad.  But not for fascia!  If you see a board with these sticking out of it, your house ain't built right!   Staples just aren't made to hold up pieces of wood thicker than .05 to .10 millimeters (you know, paper).  They do a really good job on that.   But if these are in your fascia, don't be surprised if your house looks like this after a strong wind or a strong rain coupled with a clogged gutter!  One this one, the vinyl soffit, gutter, and fascia (still intact with aluminum wrap on it) all came off in 1 piece!  It was just sitting on the roof, all together.   So please, instead of staples, use nails or even the proper screws!  I know they are hard...

It's the second Friday of the month and that can only mean one thing......Art After Hours!  The streets of historic, downtown Wake Forest come alive with some of the areas most creative artists showcasing their works whether they be paintings, photography, sculpture or sketchings.  This month The Cotton Company will showcase the photography of Leigh Moose.  I have read a few "briefs" and short bio's on Leigh and for most posts I use what I read.  I never have had the opportunity to actually meet artists prior to their showings.  Even if I met them at the reception it was too late for me to post what was upcoming.  Well, this time is different.  I had the honor of meeting Leigh in person prior to the opening, and yes, it was a complete honor.  Leigh has a story to be told that can only b...
