Tis the Season to be Jolly…

Recently I toured my local Pier One Imports store (www.pier1.com) for holiday decorating ideas and got quiet a few good ones.  I decided to use the pictures I took on my Instagram and to write my blog about simple decorating ideas for the holidays to bring beauty to your home should your home be “on the market” for sale during the holiday season; but this morning as I was collecting my thoughts about what I had planned to say, I went back to where I was last Christmas.  I decided to share my real life experience along with some decorating ideas.  What better way to get to know me – Right?  So here goes…  Continue reading

Not a Decorator? Neither am I!

I love everything about real estate from the new construction process to the decorating process to the closing process.  There are so many fun steps to take when building a new home.  BUT- what if your home is already built or you already live in your home and are thinking about selling or just updating your home? Where do you go to get design inspiration?  If you are like me and not a certified or professionally trained interior decorator, it can be hard to know what to select when making the necessary changes to bring your home up to date.  I am lucky to be in the real estate field because I keep up with what is popular and on trend in the home business.  I also see a lot of what needs to go!  So many people live in their homes their entire life and are still living with green shag carpet.  Seriously – well maybe that is a little bit exaggerated but I have seen it – believe me!

Oyster Point – Mount Pleasant

Me in Kit1

Happy Monday.  I spent the afternoon at Oyster Point getting ready for an out of state Buyer to come in tomorrow.  I have sold homes in Oyster Point before but I always like to go by the places I plan to show the day before if I have time.  I am a planner for the most part and it is very important to me to have everything planned out for you before you arrive so I can show you a wonderful day.  So far, this has worked well.  So why am I standing in a new construction kitchen?  I can’t even cook.  I mean I can cook enough to not starve, and I was able to cook even to care for my children when they lived at home.  I guess being single and living alone I just don’t find the need to cook much anymore.  However, I love the way a kitchen looks – super nice!  HA HA – that probably doesn’t even make sense does it?  Well, the kitchen is the heart of the home.  It is where everyone gathers to watch you cook or to talk to you while you are cooking, so why not be in luxury even in the kitchen?  I am standing in a beautiful town home in Oyster Point.  The builder is DR Horton.  I have sold so many of their wonderful homes during my career, and my Buyers have always been very pleased with their purchase.  There are also single family homes in this beautiful neighborhood too if you would rather not have a town home.  And…the amenities are amazing.  Not only do they have a pool which is huge, they have a bocce ball, tennis courts, playground, walking trails and a dock!  Yes, a dock where you can drive your boat up to the dock and pick up your family or guests. This neighborhood is super close to the Isle of Palm Connector which means 5 minutes to the BEACH!  I have posted some beautiful pictures of the neighborhood and two of the models.  If you are ever in my area, please call me.  I would love to show you around!
