Better than new, is this recently restored Craftsman Bungalow on the Park! This home was taken to the studs and built up with no stone unturned. Many unique details- Trey ceilings, canned lights, entry foyer with a fireplace! Come tour and find spacious bedrooms off a main hall (great for art!) with traditional gleaming white moldings throughout. The kitchen boasts french doors off the E-I- breakfast nook/sun room. This summer you’ll enjoy the wrap around front porch over looking a serene park. All this within a Historic in town community. Ask about our association, private security and Merchants Coalition.

Getting settled with the new broker…

Happy New Year!!

The past month was very busy and a huge emotional roller coaster. Having received the news of Sanctuary closing, I was forced to NOT vacation and scramble around to interview new brokerages.   -Totally knocked off my game because there was too much to think of. Culture, vision, mission and overall “what does the company stand for? ”  and “what do people think when they see their name….”

I think I found a good one, to hold my license but this time I decided to just go and get my brokerage license and really brand my own company.  Too bad my marketing team is still on vacation -lol.. I’m anxiously awaiting their return because I have 101  ideas and my excitement is bubbling over.

So what’s new on the Real Estate front?  I have many great listings becoming available.  1560 S. Gordon, 1530 S. Gordon …and if you haven’t seen my Beltline Bungalow with a Carriage house by now, you’re missing it!!  Stick around, now that I have gotten MY blog back from being under the last company- I can get back to me- writing and informing you of my community!

Small Cool…

I think my house is too big.
I know I could never imagine thinking this, when I was in my smaller ranch home but, while sweeping the upstairs hall and discovering dust balls in places I haven’t been in weeks, I felt drained.
Not drained from the amount of work I had to do to keep the house in order, but drained in the creativity department.  Is there such a thing as having too much space for “stuff” that it actually stifles our creativity?
I don’t know, but I’m feeling it.  When I was in the ranch home, I remember being bold and daring.  I painted the dining room a deep chocolate-brown, I used baskets for storage and seats.  I recreated shelves and turned nooks into libraries.  In the living room, I painted one wall aqua  and on the other  white with a huge freehand aqua flower.
I hung curtains all over and weekly rearranged furniture to give each room new life.  The bold YELLOW kitchen always felt spicy and my red bathroom fun. I miss the ME, in that home.
Now with a little over 3,000 sq. ft, I feel…afraid!
I’m afraid to make any paint decisions that may stand out and not flow with the “theme” of the home…?? What theme? I still have yet to define my “theme” but don’t’ want to make any moves out of fear of potentially messing whatever it WILL BE, up.  Insanity!
I know and always tell clients, “Painting is the easiest, most affordable way to make a change. If you don’t like it- paint it AGAIN!”
So why am I not following my advice?
Today, I had to revisit a few good websites and books that always inspire and motivate me.  (http://www.apartmenttherapy.com) Apartment Therapy’s “Small Cool” book top’s the list.
I really miss my small cool home viewing this site http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/big-book/ ..now, how to take these ideas and be brave enough to incorporate them on a larger scale?
