One of my FAVORITE Things to DO! Flea Market Finds

One of my Favorite things to do…is as George would say, look for junk!  The Springfield Flea Market Extravaganza held in the Fall and Spring at the Clark County Fairgrounds is one of my favorite HUNTING Grounds.  I must say when I share downsizing tips to my clients…getting rid of clutter,  I always feel a little guilty as I know our house would be the biggest project ever.

So looking through so much stuff to find my treasures or just to take some photos for ideas to remember when I get home…

The Real Estate Market is crazy right now.  If you want to list, now is the time!  If you want to build, get in line.  Many buyers feel they don’t need a REALTOR when they build a new house.  Not true.  Builders use a contract that is to their advantage.  You need someone with experience to guide you along the way.  George and I have built two custom homes…we learned so much…sometimes the hard way.  I have helped many families build and have kept on top of the process for them.  Love sitting in on beginning drawings, modifications, and selecting materials for the finished product.  Negotiating and representing the buyer…all in a day’s work.  The builders pay the realtor and want to keep the realtor happy…who brings them the business.

Happy Holiday Weekend…You might just have some time to go as George says, “Junk Shopping”.
