      Seriously? Sure, it happens...but not often. In ten years of real estate I've only had two agents tell me after they conveyed acceptance of an offer that they had missed an important term. The first time we were within a week of closing and the agent only noticed because more than $2000 tow...
Terrible Fire in Downtown Sylva, NC...Saturday, August 16, 2014 ...Kelly Timco Photos     This past Saturday morning started like most others. We had plans to go to downtown Sylva to enjoy the celebration of the NC Cooperative Extension's 100th birthday and to go by our local tailgate market. I p...
  In Real Estate Pre-Licensing and Post-Licensing courses in North Carolina, it is drilled into real estate agents that we MUST know who we work for.  In our state, agents work either FOR the seller or the buyer, with clear fiduciary responsibilities of confidentiality to either the Seller or the...
Yesterday was a good snail mail day. The announcement arrived for the 2014-2015 Mainstage Season at Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, NC.

People work part-time in real estate for many reasons. What really matters is how do you know if you are hiring a part-time or full-time real estate agent and which is in your best interest.     ...
Consumers might feel Realtors are being a invasive during initial conversations about buying a house, but we have good reason to ask hard questions.  We ask "have you spoken with a lender?" but that's just the beginning.  It isn't enough to know that your debt to income ratio suggests you might w...
David Bowie is still a favorite musician of mine.  Back in the days of early MTV, I couldn't wait for one of his videos to come on.  There was always meaning in the story and he was famous for pushing the envelope. Since it came out I'll bet I've seen this a hundred times and still find it to be ...
  It's hard to believe that 10 years ago today I learned that I had passed the North Carolina Real Estate Exam and earned my real estate license. Happy Anniversay to Me!   Nothing about the class nor the tests was easy. It was difficult to go "back to school" after having been out of school for s...
