“If you do what is hard life will be easy.  If you do what is easy your life will be hard.” ~ Les Brown


Success Story continued…First we bought the acreage. Second we sold the house. 

Dreams come in all shapes and sizes and for The Whaley’s having their horse on their own property was just a dream until acreage with a horse barn that is perfect for their family’s horse came on the market.  Other’s liked that parcel too and after 30 days in a back-up contract, they took first position and closed on that dream within 30 days.  


Next, was putting their home of 15 years on the market.  Maintaining a home really pays off when you want to sell.  With only a few things to do, she was listed and under contract in 31 days.  Not to say that there wasn’t a wee bit of stress involved but relying on an agent that can answer all their questions certainly has its advantages with stress management. Did I mention obtaining a short term rental in between selling their home and building their new home, to put the cherry on the top of that ice cream sundae!! 

Anything worth obtaining comes with obstacles and, as Booker T. Washington says, “You measure the size of the accomplishment by the obstacles you have to overcome to reach your goals.” 

This my friends, is what is meant by "the rubber hitting the road".  You need to FOCUS (Follow One Course Until Successful) in the middle of work schedules, kid’s schedules, and life’s detoured agendas to drive that plane onto the runway.  Buying and selling real estate has many moving parts and having a ‘coach’ to see you through is what can make all the difference in Happy Day at Closing or maybe no closing at all.  

Need a ‘coach’ to help you FOCUS with a Home Sweet Home goal?  I would love to help you with this.

My Og Mandino mantra in this sale, “I will persist until I succeed”.

This is exactly how this home sale went.  This story is too complicated to even begin so I will just start with the end, “WE DID IT!!” 


Thank you to The Legates family who were just as persistent in getting to the table.  Even after years of matching homes with people, I learned something new.  


Need someone to be just as persistent for you, I would love to have a telephone conversation with you today.

Sometimes you just want a change in some personal things and that was the reason why The Hignutt’s contacted me.  They wanted to live on the same property that had a horse barn among other reasons.  So we listed their 8-acre parcel with the horse barn that was across the street from them and wrote an offer on this dream property.  The lots garnered 3 offers in the few days on the market with the back up offer actually going to closing.  

Now Paul and Heather can live where their horses live and still maintain the peaceful surroundings for their family. The horse barn and fenced in areas for their horses compliment their beautiful new home to raise their family and be much closer to the kids school.

It is such a pleasure to work with a determined, persistent couple.  On my way to work this morning I heard this definition, “Victory: An achievement of mastery or success in a struggle against odds or difficulties.”  And that depicts this closing.  There were many obstacles in our path but, with working with Paul and Heather, we had such determination to get to the finish line together that it made for such a sweet closing today.

Thank you Theran Smith at The Parker Group and Joan Tyndall / Shannon Carmean Burton at Sergovic, Carmean, Weidman, McCartney, Owens. 

Are you looking for a ‘change’ in your life? Let me help get you towards your dreams.

I am so delighted to have this close today. We weren’t sure all along but the selling agent, Rich Polite, and I did many tasks with the same mindset, willing seller and willing buyer to a closing! If you are not involved in this business on a regular basis, you just don’t know the things agents (and attorney’s office) have to do behind the scenes. Kiddos to The Smith Firm for a successful closing.

Welcome to Manor House, Acts Retirement-Life Communities.

So grateful to have had the opportunity to represent Ms. Virginia with the sale of her home.  She and her late husband moved here 11 years ago and thoroughly enjoyed the Lower Sussex lifestyle and the plot of land they retired to.  I just loved hearing all the stories of their lives together and the many things she still is involved with like Read Aloud Delaware.  We connected right way and I shared my involvement with Reading ASSIST Institute, another volunteer program.  

Ms. Virginia wrestled with the idea of living at Manor House and at the end of the year was ready to make the move.  We talked a lot about this move and how the lack of apprehension had affirmed her decision time and time again. 

My marketing strategy garnered multiple offers and a contract in just 3 days.  It helped that I had such a wonderful seller who listened well to the strategy.  

Ms. Virginia had several problems that needed to be solved and that is what I love about this career.  Each home and client has their own problems that need solving.  A good Realtor has many skills but, ultimately, solving problems and maneuvering through obstacles is a challenge agents must be ready for at all times.

All my best to you Ms. Virginia.  The folks at Manor House are fortunate to have another great person added to their residences. I look forward to seeing you in the near future.

Do you have an obstacle in your way from listing you home?  Let’s get started.
