Southern Village Last weekend I went to Southern Village with my sister,a friend and our dogs for the Walk for Paws. It was a  was a beautiful fall day, perfect for a walk down the tree lines streets of Southern Village.     Southern Village dates from the early 90's and was the first of the "new old neighborhoods" in the area. One of the models for the new neighborhood was Kentlands in Va. When the development of Southern Village first started I really wondered how it would turn out. I was familiar with Kentlands, my sister lived there, it was a wonderful neighborhood concept. But in Kentlands the land was level and Southern Village had so much topography.... How would they ever get it to look good with the density and hills? Well, it turned out great. The developers, D.R. Bryan , Brya...

The annual Paws4Ever Dog Walk was held this past weekend at Southern Village in Chapel Hill, NC. The event was well attended on a beautiful Saturday which brought out pooches, some in costume, and their people for live music, browsing the booths of pet centric vendors, a silent auction of some unique hand crafted dog houses donated by local builders and many other unique handcrafts. A lively demonstration by the Paws4Ever Drill Team was followed by the dog agility course demonstration and a popular round of Musical Sit! Finally, the pet parade left the village green for a walk around Southern Village. Thanks to all who attended! We look forward to seeing you again next year!

“Cherished Family Memories Reluctantly For Sale To Highest Bidder… and we do mean high so don’t offend us with a lowball offer.” I see this ad all the time; in community newspapers and magazines, print, online and in my email. I see it every time I pull up the day’s New Listings in MLS. You’re kidding…no one would ever run such an ad, would they? Guess again; this is exactly what a seller is saying when s/he decides to ask their real estate agent to “just try it” and put an overpriced home on the market to see if anyone is willing to pay. (Never mind whether or not a lender is willing to lend money to a buyer to overpay for your home but that’s another discussion…) We all think we are capable of being perfectly objective when it comes to selling our homes. “I know it’s just a house,’ we...

It’s the newest marketing advice in real estate! And probably car sales and insurance sales and any other sales you can think of…’become their trusted advisor.’ Don’t get me wrong. It’s great advice and those who are giving it are correct. But some folks seem to skip over the first word in that advice…BECOME. I am not your ‘trusted advisor’ because I use that term to describe myself on my webpage. I am not your ‘trusted advisor’ because you typed that keyword into a search engine and I came up. I am not even your trusted advisor because I am trusted by others. Not yet... Trusted advisors are parents, teachers, mentors and friends. People who really know us; who really care about our happiness and want us to succeed and make good decisions. Until such time as I should fall into one of th...

Life happens and sometimes a home seller has to move out of a home before it is sold. On occasion there are even circumstances that would lead me to suggest that they move out early to facilitate the sale. But that's not what I'm talking about here. I'm talking about the fact that vacant homes are homes that present their own unique challenges since there is no one in them to notice if a pipe bursts, the newspapers pile up or the yard looks untended. Many home sellers who, for any number of reasons, end up having to vacate a property during the marketing period, seem to feel it is no different than going away on vacation for a couple of weeks. Everything will be ok, right? The law of unintended consequences is always lurking, waiting for just this combination of circumstances. And let m...
