Easter will definitely be different this year! Having Easter dinner with my husband only; no family or friends coming to visit. I decorated for Easter the end of March. But, alas no one will be visiting to see my decorations. So, I thought I would share them with you today.   Since I couldn't find a straw hat for the large bunny in my front yard, I decided to leave the St Patrick's hat and tie on the bunny. Bunny Tips: 1. Don't put all your eggs in one basket. 2. Everyone needs a friend who is all ears. 3.  There's no such thing as too much candy.  4. All work and no play can make you a basket case.   5. A cute tail attracts a lot of attention.  6. Everyone is entitled to a bad hare day.  7. Let happy thoughts multiply like rabbits.  8. Some body parts should be floppy.  9. Keep your pa...

This all-brick 3BR/2BA brick ranch with 1664 sq ft of living space on eight acres has sold. I was the buyer's agent on this transaction. The buyer was moving from Texas to West Virginia and wasn't available to travel here to see properties. So, I made videos of three properties and sent them to the buyer.  She liked this one the best at 6227 Grassy Meadows Rd, Alderson, WV.  The loan officer, Pam Istrate, with Loan Depot, did a fantastic job of getting this VA loan approved in a short period of time. The buyer arrived in Alderson at 11:30 pm on Saturday, February 29th. My husband and I were there with the lights and heat on for the buyer. She was starting her new job on Monday and rented back from the sellers for three days until closing, March 3.    This property is conventionally loca...

Below are photos of some West Virginia sightings I have seen in the past few months while showing properties to clients.   This past week while showing a property at Sandstone Mountain, we came upon these rams. They were not scared of us and I got to take some photos.    Of course, we always see deer. Even in our community. My husband counted over 20+ deer in our backyard.       This was a funny one. On my way to Renick, WV, we sighted a pig walking along the road. I stopped to get a photo, and he crossed the road and back to the other side. When I started driving again, he started running alongside the car. It was funny to see the pig run and we had some good laughs watching the fat pig.       I not only saw one rooster but many at this showing.   Another sighting was this very large s...
