All things about my corner of Knoxville, TN, west Knoxville, and surrounding areas.
I just love cool little tips like these. I remembered the toothpaste to polish chrome trick, but did you know (or remember) the baby bottle deoderizing trick?

A friend recently asked me "Who would you invite to Thanksgiving dinner?" It's a slight twist on a popular psychological question that was often used by HR Departments to see how you would fit in with the company. She had heard it on a morning radio show, so I played along. The first person I'd i...
Today it's raining in my corner of the world. I also have clients whose "weekend" lands on Monday-Tuesday, so we have scheduled showings.

But things are hopping over there, selling like hotcakes hopping!   Seriously, though, Harrison Springs is a highly desirable subdivision starting with location, location, location! That is followed up by f...
I don't know about you but I live by my laptop. I have other techie toys, but my phone and laptop are my life-lines. This morning, I had to drop off my laptop to have several keys replaced. How long can you be without your laptop? It didn't last long before I was completely lost. As a Realtor® al...
Shocking that an agent would decline a listing, doncha think? I honestly think it is the right think to do if the seller is not willing to work closely with you, or take your advice. But, one of the things that really stood out for me, in Tammie's post, is HOW she prepares her Competitive Market ...
