As many of you already know, we had our baby girl on May 19th. One of the presents we received was for a photo shoot with a professional photographer to be done before she is 2 weeks old. On Saturday, my wife & Isabelle met with Lynn Crawford for this shoot. Below are some of the many wonderful pictures that were taken. Lynn did a fantastic job!!! We are so pleased with the results.

Caravelle #522...  The views from the 5-th floor balconies are awesome.  Only one floor, the fifth floor oceanfronts at the Caravelle have these gigantic 20+ft verandas.  This oceanfront efficiency just sold for $ 117,000.  The New Market Common in the heart of Myrtle Beach combines that low country style and easy going feel with the modern, rendering a European flavor to a wonderful outdoors shopping experience.  Trendy boutiques, bustling, stylish bistros; you absolutely must include this on your itinerary. The ubiquitous Myrtle Beach "Bikes"...   Europe in Myrtle Beach...  Market Common         Cherry Grove Beach Homes...  The Cherry Grove Marsh spills here, between Tidewater Golf Course and this quaint, fishing village like neighborhood.  Navigable canals cut into every street, so ...

This may sound a bit strange; please indulge me for a few moments here!  I was wondering how many of you are giving "Mercy Discounts"?   I am not referring to negotiating a lower commission rate when you are taking the listing.  I'm talking about having a signed listing in place already and giving the Seller a break by discounting the commission already agreed upon, because the Seller is in a bad situation and has to bring money to closing.    I had a seller bring over $ 30,000 to closing recently and I surprised him right before closing by discounting my commission.  He never asked me to do it, but I just felt bad for him and wanted to show him my support.  He was very appreciative indeed and I felt good about helping him.  He has two kids and a family to support, and he actually pulle...

I've been bit by the rabid super MeMe bug.  Ouch!  I feel it, Rich, right on my left cheek... and I don't mean my face!!!  Comply with the request I must, so here it goes (I remember doing this in grade school, only with a different Q & A):   Who is your favorite musical artist?   It changes all the time.  The only constant ones are Mozart, Beethoven and Vivaldi.  I listened to Vivaldi's "Four Seasons" for an entire 9 months while I was pregnant.  It was the only tape I had and it soothed me (Baroque music is very relaxing; it has a similar number of beats per minute as your heart).  Mozart and Beethoven work for me at different times.  When I am very sad I listen to Mozart's Requiem.  When I'm upset I listen to Beethoven's Coriolan and Eggmont overtures.  I turn it on loud too; it's gr...

All work and no play... well you know how the saying goes... Last weekend I took my family to Myrtle Beach in South Carolina. A long drive but boy did we have fun! The shore is beautiful and the sand is white! We went to the IMAX theater, played miniture golf and even drove Nascars!   It is always good to take a break and visit a new place.   When kids are involved spend time doing what they want to do and you will enjoy yourself too!   Sure I enjoy showing people Charlottesville Real Estate but time with my family is precious and sometimes we do not get together as much as we should.   Enjoy your day and more importantly, enjoy your family!   Your RE/MAX Agent in Charlottesville Virginia!

Working in the real estate marketing business is tons of fun. However, my wife says I'm way too critical of print ads and web sites. It seems the tables have now turned. Just the other morning while reading the Sunday paper, my wife commented to me how bad a particular newspaper ad was. She's was right! Here's the deal, her thumb was covering the lone reference on the ad to "where" this festival was taking place, plus the reference is really small. Duhhh... that might be critical piece of information to know. Take look... don't blink you might miss the location of the event! Did You Figure it Out? Now granted the original print ad is "a little" clearer than the scanned copy I have provided. Trust me, the orginal version with the lone location reference is just as "fuzzy". If you figured...

  Market Common, built on the site of the old Air Force Base in Myrtle Beach, takes the best of the city and leaves the worst out. Parking meters will not be installed at least for one year. The "urban village" concept combines retail stores, restaurants, parks and residential housing in the same complex. It is a sight to see and is stunning. Fortunately the developers and the Myrtle Beach City Council decided to leave out the parking meters. If you want walking distance access to Market Common without living there look at Seagate Condominiums. These are the original Air Base houses converted into condos. Some are single, detached homes just like a regular neighborhood and some are duplexes. Condo fee covers all exterior maintenance including paint among other things. Myrtle Beach Stat...

Wall Street Journal columnist Cyril Moulle-Berteaux predicts the real estate slump will end in 2008, in his recent opinion column The Housing Crisis is Over. He makes a very good argument for his opinion, reminding us that the current housing bust is now nearly 3 years old!  Hard to believe, isn't it?  2005 saw the peak of it all, when we were getting 50 leads a day and realtors were little more than order-takers.  Here it is in mid 2008, and real estate agents everywhere have left their careers, many because they came on board when they didn't have to SELL, but do little more than answer the phone, reply to emails, and cherry-pick the leads. According to the journalist, New Home sales are now down 63% from then, and new construction is less than 1/2 of what it was, back to the levels o...
