Patience Grasshopper

YIKES!  I haven't blogged in a while and I'm sure my fans are anxiously awaiting an update.  This is my attempt at not taking myself too seriously.  I enjoy blogging but feel that most people just aren't that interested but for those that are, here ya go.....

I'm now officially back in a comfort zone with my real estate photography.  It took a while to get here but that's because I tend to get knee deep before reaching out for help.  My pricing is somewhat set but am not going to firmly commit until I make sure there aren't any surprises around the corner.  New business and repeat customers are calling.  Yippee!  Now I have to update my website when I'd really just like to find a genie in a bottle and make a wish.

Real estate in KC is booming!  Since I'm the one that dropped my real estate business on its head when I got bitten by the photography bug, I have only myself to blame when I get that impatient feeling and want our business to be right where I left it.  Patience is not my strongest attribute and honestly, it's probably the worst part about me.  I tend to work/play in high gear with my hair on fire until my head hits the pillow at night.  My new mantra is, "Patience, Patience, Patience."

I have tons of real estate photos I could show you but what I really want to do is introduce you to the newest member of our clan.  Please meet our new niece, Lexi.  She was born last week and will certainly be the most spoiled baby thus far.  She may possibly be the last baby for the family, which means she'll be held by every female and not allowed to walk until she's at least two.


Thanks for stopping in and if you'd like to help me with my patience problem, and know of anyone in need of a realtor, please pass along our contact information.  :)  The links below will take you to our websites.  Much appreciated.

"I AM NOT YOUR SECRETARY!"

Real estate and photography have been busier than ever and I couldn't be happier.  Having Mike home to shuffle, wipe, brush, bathe, drive, cook (that one is a stretch), read, pray, snuggle and play good-cop/bad-cop with the kids has made life so much fun.

We are off and running with our first listing scheduled to go on the market very soon.  Mike and I are navigating the nuances of working/building a business together and I'm happy to report that neither one of us have come away licking any wounds.  However, I did have to make a very loud and clear statement last week that went like this............"I AM NOT YOUR SECRETARY!"  It has now turned into an ongoing joke in our home.  Any time I ask him to do something like, "Will you grab some milk on your way home?" or "Can you please put some gas in the car?",  I can expect to hear, "I AM NOT YOUR SECRETARY!"  Humor never goes into a recession in our home.

Here's a sneak peek of the new listing!


Interest rates and inventory are low in the Kansas City area.  There really couldn't be a better time to buy or sell a home regardless of what the naysayers are telling us on the news.  If you're just thinking about it, give us a call and we'll help you decide if it's a good time for you or not.  

Thanks for stopping in and catching up.

Ciao,

Dawn
