My husband and I decided that we were paying way too much for cable! We were in a contract with Directv and did not have a good experience with their On Demand; multiple times we purchased movies and it would stop to buffer or stop completely and tell us "please try again later" and kick us out of our movie! So disappointing when you are in the middle of a great movie!!! So we decided it was our turn to "cut the cord" with cable. 

I started doing research on different streaming companies. I also reached out to the Facebook community and got tons of recommendations as well! There are so many articles and people we know that are convinced that they have the BEST streaming service!! So how do you know truly which is the best? 

We made our decision

Another happy seller/buyer! Wendee needed to buy her next home and sell her current home at the same time. I have been working with her for 4 years, throughout all the curve balls life has thrown at us. We made her dream come true as a team. I don't care if a client can start this journey now or years from now; I will stick by their side and guide them. Receiving packages like this reassures me I am doing my job right! I am grateful to have Wendee as a client and now after all this time, a great friend.

If you feel like your house hunting is taking longer than expected, know that you aren't alone!! In a REALTOR® magazine article, it was stated that "the two chief reasons why home buyers said their search was taking so long was not being able to find a home with the features they want (45%) and having difficulty finding one at a price they could afford (43%)." If you feel like either of those are also your reason, don't let those them deter you from finding your PERFECT MATCH!

Stay positive, keep searching and you WILL find the right home!

My husband and I PAINTED our lawn! With laying new sod or installing artificial grass being pretty expensive options, we decided to read up on what it takes to paint it! This was a common solution during the drought and while getting artificial grass is still our goal, it is just too expensive for us to do right now. This was a perfect solution to have green grass for the rest of summertime! Happy with it!
