  Time must be the most convenient invention of the human mind – sometimes it's even a tool for getting to staff  meetings when everyone else does.On Tuesday, when we get together, I ask our eco-friendly Buyers' Brokers to bring clip boards and use forms we have created mostly so that we can get through our staff  meetings in a "timely" manner.  We have so much to talk about these days what with the "Green Revolution" and the surge in green building in the Asheville area. Don't laugh, but we even have a “designated” clock watcher and set the timer to keep us moving forward and on track as  each of us to share our business-at-hand. For a group of talkative colleagues, it works. But there is more...  I have been thinking about time and the Buyers' Broker, and how important time management...

          It's one of those perfect, clear nights in Asheville. Not a cloud in the sky. From my ridgetop, facing north, a million stars above call my name. Here in the venerable mountains, almost as old as time itself, tonight I am thinking that it actually  is easy to connect with something much larger than myself. We all know that as you relax, your heart just opens wide, and that magic connection simply happens.. But, tonight that knowing is very present, and a certain embracing serenity is in the air. Maybe that’s why Asheville ranks as the “Happiest City in the USA”.           A gentle soul once told me, “…..there’s a pathway to contentment here. It is like the rainbows over the ridges. It's an uncommon force. When you see it you can measure it by your heartbeat ... an all-at-once ...

Because I am in Asheville,North Carolina and so many people want to be here, a particular interest to me in my real estate practice is providing good information to my relocating clients.From time to time, families new to the area, tell me they really miss the sense of belonging and family ties they had in their previous neighborhoods. For example, high school kids let me know that it’s not easy to feel uprooted  and to  leave their pals in another city. Parents agree. They want to deal with concerns about “the culture” at a new school before they relocate here. In response to these, and a myriad of clients’ concerns, over the years we have gathered a ten-foot stack of resource materials having to do with RELO INFO and “making happy connections”. Here in Asheville, voted the “Happiest C...

 I have a steady real estate practice. For some reason, I keep attracting dog lovers. Maybe that’s because I am a dog lover myself. I hop in the car with families and their poodles, beagles, hounds and mutts. I take dog biscuits with me to  my listing appointments. I carry dog goodies in my glove box.   I have met a hundred or more dogs along the way. This is the story of just one. Her name is Isabella.  Isabella is an exceptional Golden Retriever, but not in the way you might expect. By some measures, Isabella is a mess. She had a real tough start in life. Weaned at Kennel One, shipped to Kennel Two, and then, as luck would have it, sent to Kennel Three, she was showing the affects—she was old beyond her years. The owner of Kennel Two had expected Isabella to finish her championships ...

 Connor came home from school the other day talking about “smart growth.” Barb, his Mom, a new client of ours thought he was talking about how fast he was growing. Maybe her contribution to his "smart growth" should be to buy his shoes a size too big. But Connor straightened her out right away. Connor explained that ”Smart Growth”  is a term that Asheville and other communities are using to articulate their goal for a relatively compact  pattern of development that accommodates a diversity of people, housing types and jobs. "It works well for everybody, and makes efficient use of public investments," he informed her. Connor said he'd be volunteering to help out on a couple of community projects, and invited her to come along. One of the projects involves walkable and bikable neighborhoo...

"Green" Sustainable Real Estate is energy efficient. ! And saving energy and $$$ is exciting.  Things HAPPEN when people start getting together and talking. And the the talk here in the Greater Asheville area, where "THINGS" already are happening, is about making wise choices in terms of sustainability.  Here in Asheville, it is safe to say that we are on a roll for sustainable inoovation. Asheville, N.C.'s creative citizenry has set its heart on finding ways around the "energy crisis" and the global warming predicament. They are taking a leadership role in "unearthing" new ways that will benefit our ecology and our economy.  EXAMPLE: FUEL EFFICIENCY & BIO DIESEL FUEL  Take, for example, one community owned business, Blue Ridge BioFuels. This business has a two-fold objective:1) Educate...
