This week I showed a house where the master bedroom was clearly an afterthought and the only thing I could think of was how sad. It doesn't matter if you're honeymooning or going through the big D, your master bedroom is the last thing you drift away in at night and the first thing you smell before your eyes even open. It's the beginning and end of your day and worthy of more effort than many give it. Here are a few easy decorating tips to making your master bedroom lovable again: 1. Give the bedframe wall an accent color; 2. Layer the linens. Great sheets, great looking new bedding, great stack of pillows; 3. Mix-n-match the nightstand stuff including some good-looking practical items, even your H2O bottle; 4. Gather practical supplies -- bed tray, reading, throw; 5. Bring in some comf...

The Best Real Estate Agents Have Great Systems:   The word system has quite a few definitions, I like: An organized and coordinated method of doing things on a daily, weekly, monthly, and annual basis. Well, I have been wanting to write this post for a while, but today, and me stumbling upon the last day and hours of the IMSD Systems challenge here at Active Rain, I can’t think of a better reason to wait any longer to write it. I have been a member of Active Rain from almost the inception of it, but like a lot of members here in the beginning; I set up a profile on Active Rain and forgot about it for the next four years not realizing what I had my hands on with AR.  For those reading this who don’t know what ActiveRain is, it is the largest Network of Real Estate Professionals online in...

It happens. I get a traditional buyer and years later they go to resale on their own without me - FSBO. Or I help them purchase an investment and they want to flip and resale it on their own or rent it on their own. It happens. They are all after the same thing... they learned real estate from the best (ha ha) and they want to save a buck. I get it. It's all good. There is more than enough business for me and the mouse in my pocket. But sometimes I can't help myself! They are good people! Good clients. Best friends! I had a nice steak dinner and a fine wine after their deal or on their patio and I just can't stop myself... I still want to give them one more thank you vs. get all upset over them wanting to do my job, since it's so easy, right? Wink. Teasing. The reality is they can do it...

Keller TX Parks:  Keller Veteran's Park and Happy Veterans Day!   Happy Veterans Day! (Observed, per my calendar) so I will observe it yet again(please see first blog) and tell you about the Veterans Park in Keller.   This little park is right off of 1709/Keller Parkway and the corner of 377 in Old Town Keller.  The park is highly visible to passerby because of it’s proximity to the Old Keller water tower and the beautiful carved eagle rising up through the middle.   This Keller park is more of a monument than a park and is meant to honor those Keller, TX citizens who have served our country in the armed forces.  The park consists of 7 granite pillars, one in the center as a monument recognizing the service of Keller TX veterans and the other six surrounding the central column with the ...

Keller Texas BEST BUY OF THE DAY: Amy Steele www.SteeleOfALifetime.com Good evening y'all. I was out previewing new listings today in Keller Tx and I had to tell you about this fabulous buy in the Williamsburg Estates in Keller.  I LOVE this area not only because it is close to downtown Keller and everything else but because it is a quiet community with mature trees and pride of ownership.  This Keller home for sale is not only beautiful on the inside and the outside but it backs up to a private ranch where you have views of the ranch's private lake.  Your neighbors back there?   In typical Texas fashion they're LONGHORNS.  I find longhorns to be such interesting creatures and I love to watch them.  This Keller TX home has a stunning back yard with a pool on a third of an acre.  Just cl...

Ghostbusters was one of my favorite movies as a kid, so the branding of Clutterbusters!! is amusing to me. "We ain't afraid of no mess!" But that's the last reason I would call on Kay Gallegos* at Clutterbusters!!, Fort Worth. I meet with Kay as a trusted business partner on a weekly basis about business building. If I were a piece of paper out of place, I would be afraid. Be very afraid! Kay's de-clutter Queen! Kay organizes homes, offices and home offices. In the case of Realtors® with home offices like mine, she can take on tasks as simple as workflow management and file management or as complex as multi-suite "garages full." She helps hoarders. Sorta-hoarders. And Kay de-clutters the kinda-cluttered. She can shape up the ship before it sets "sale" and she can give a whole new meanin...
