I remember as I started my journey in real estate, countless people would say, “make sure you sell a lot in the Spring & Summer, the winter months are tough in real estate”, or “no one likes to move in the Winter, so expect it to be slow”. At the time, I believed them. I thought oh no, just as I start getting my foot in the door the Winter months will come & I’ll have no business! What am I going to do?
Its January, January 10, 2018 to be exact, we’ve been fighting off -5 degree temperatures & frigid wind-chill. It is COLD, but guess what? I currently have three different buyers, all pre-approved and ready to buy their next home, and our only issue… there’s NO inventory! You don’t have to be an expert, a real estate agent or have any clue about real estate in general to understand supply & demand. As supply declines, demand goes up, people want what isn’t out there, in this case… YOUR HOME!
So, I started to think, how many people are considering the idea of moving? You need an extra bedroom, your husband, wife, boyfriend or roommates clothing is currently in the hall closet, and you need space for all the new things you accumulated from the holidays. Does this sound familiar? It’s time to sell your home. In fact, there is no better time than right now, and here’s three reasons why. Read More
Wow. It's taken me a few tries to sit down and start writing this thing, for a couple of reasons. Every time I'd open my computer my brain would start thinking of the 5,000 "resolutions" I should be coming up with & all the changes I want to make for the new year. Or, I would start to recap the year and get sidetracked looking at pictures from travels, and shoots, and who know's what.
But here I am, and boy am I glad I waited. They say this week, you know the one between Christmas & New Years is one of the oddest weeks of the year. I couldn't agree more. Do you start your "resolutions" early? Do you binge on everything you say you aren't going to do starting January 1st. It's extremely hard to go back to work for a few days, to be off again. It's just kinda off. And if your weather is anything like it is here in Kansas City, you really just wanna stay home, cuddle up by the fire and NEVER LEAVE. (currently feels like it's -50 outside) Read More
I have been on the hunt for the right concealer / under eye coverage for years! I was blessed with extremely fair, thin, skin, the perfect recipe for dark under eye circles! I could have gotten 10+ hours of sleep the night before and I continue to wake up with dark circles! I do use collagen eye pads before a shoot, event, or if they are really really bad, but I need a quick fix in the morning!
Most concealers wear off within hours of application, and I found myself constantly reapplying just to have to do it all over again & again throughout the day! I had finally had enough & took the time to head to Sephora to fix the problem! Read More
