I LOVE being a REALTOR…Why?

THERE are so many reasons but the PEOPLE I meet help make my day!

I am working for a Veterinarian  that is driving over 5 hours to meet with me to  search for a home.  We share amazing, fascinating, and fun conversations in our travels as we search for that perfect home for her and her two dogs.  1.  She is listening to Audible books while driving to Columbus.  I get book reviews…”Peak Secrets from the NEW Science of Expertise” was this weeks topic.  How do you become an expert?  2.  I have learned that setting up an agility training course for dogs requires a larger back yard with no large shade trees and well established grass.  3.  Work dogs can begin their training herding ducks.  Sheep come much later.

Last week, I spent one day with a family visiting 4 middle schools in 4 school districts.  What fun for a former educator to see what is happening in schools today!  Love working for families that realize selecting a school is one of the most important factors in finding a home.

I never know who is coming through my door…..but I will be ready.

March Madness in Central Ohio Real Estate

 

Crazy season for buyers and sellers !

Reasons you need an experienced REALTOR like ME!

  1. Buyers are competing with other buyers that are escalating offers, taking out appraisal clauses, not including home inspections and the list could go on.
  2. Sellers are accepting offers with a handshake, preapproval letters from an unknown lender, long inspection periods, and nowhere to move their families.

I can guide you through the process.  If ever a time for a need of an knowledgeable,  honest, patient, caring Realtor with a sense of humor to help relieve the stress, join my winning team.

Going the Extra Mile…Ohio to Illinois

If you see me wondering around face timing I could be shopping for a client from afar.  Clintonville is so HOT right now.  I have been traveling over to tour houses with my client on her breaks from surgery so she can then make the trip to OHIO before properties are SOLD.

I love driving through Clintonville…reminds me of the streets where I grew up in Waverly, Ohio.

And of course my car turned off High Street to Iron and Elm…much more quaint and interesting than the larger store at Easton.

Love walking through this store when the garage door is up on a 70 plus day in Clintonville. Makes my day…and I just looked for great ideas!

WANTED…….Listings in Clintonville…I have the buyer…maybe 2 buyers…and they both have a MD Loan with no home sale contingency!

A Quick Trip to Lowe’s Ended in a Three Month Relationship, Bath Renovation

N

George and I (41 years of marriage, and 2 custom homes during that time) decided…well I decided and then sold the idea to George that we needed to update our master bath.  I interviewed 2 popular contractors and got the same results.  No LID on the expense, no dates for completion, contractors highly recommended I select materials from their preferred vendors….even though I might not have the time or like the selection for this process and the conditions or really no conditions….well the list could go on.  So on a whim, I decided to take a look at Lowe’s on Polaris Parkway.  I was curious but I knew…….not Lowe’s in my Custom Chateau???  The magic began when I met Theresa Bartok, Project Specialist Interior.

 

After visiting our home, Theresa drew up several plans, and together we selected products.  This book was created with every detail and a detailed timeline for each stage of the renovation.  All warranties, product information, and more.  As many of you know, I am a former educator…I love notebooks!.   This helped prepare me for my Sales Job to George.

Ok…it started right here. Goodbye green tile and this lovely bathtub only our grandchildren use!  Another GEM in this process was Anthony Pollina, General Contractor from Stouter Construction.  So why was Anthony such a GEM?  He texted or called almost every day to share who was coming and what they would be doing.  He called to remind me if no one was coming and shared why.  Stouter is a family business and many of the craftsman had worked for Anthony’s father for years.   They were experienced and pleasant to have in your home.

Can’t say we miss the HUGE TUB.  I was concerned as I show many homes that have removed tubs and there is just an awkward space. And to George’s JOY, I only purchased a rug…all was in our lower level.   Well, I did purchase what I call the Jewelry of the Master…the Chandelier.  BUT a Bargain at ARHAUS Warehouse, The LOFT  at 3791 Parkmill Run Drive…just a mix of some old Stencil paint in the lower level and Ta Da!

From a Lowe’s Representative checking the delivery of all product at the beginning to Theresa’s guidance and communication to Anthony and his daily texts and excellent crew to phone calls from Mark Moeller, Lowe’s quality control…and the list could go on.  So everyone asks me was it inexpensive…NO but at least we knew exactly the cost…not a range with no LID.  The job was completed in the estimated time.  “The right hand knew what the left hand was doing.”   One other perk…we bought Lowe’s gift cards at Giant Eagle for the project….Free gas for three months!!!  This came in handy when we had 3 additional drivers during the Holidays.

Words from this REALTOR…Where should a home owner put the $$$ if updating……BATHROOMS and KITCHENS!
