Have you ever spent an entire day looking at several houses at a time in Florida? …It can lead to quite the work out, given the average Florida temperature.
…BUT LOOK AT THIS WEEK!
It has been ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS out! Perfect temp. Slight chill. No rain. Sunny skies. And a gentle breeze.
Don’t get me wrong: Vero Beach, Florida offers some of the best weather year ‘round! But the difference in temperature gives a touch of magic from season to season.
If you wish to see a property you’d like to call home, feel free to call me!
Here is a link to my site where you can view several stunning properties!
Get your jacket, and let's have a great day! :)
BLOG: " It is LOVELY weather for a showing! "
What do any of these images say to you?
I randomly found them on Pinterest, and immediately I noticed the colors, the textures, the vibrance, the ... fun!
Well, if I'm sitting at a desk getting excited about them, imagine what spaces like these do for a child's mind! Much like adults, children are very much driven by visual effects, if not to the same degree -- MORE!
Also like adults, children have an emotional reaction to leaving a home they grew up loving, to moving into a space they've never seen before. In many cases home buying is an emotional process. To a child, this emotional process is often magnified.
The good news is there are MANY ways to make a child happy! (HUZZAH!)
So my advise to you as an agent would be this: Create an environment that your children can grow, dwell, and flourish in-- a space they will be comfortable in, and eventually learn to love.
Get them involved in the decorating process of their room. Kids love anything hands-on! Start off with small projects like wall color, or bed style. Ask colors they like. Include various textures that will help their senses develop.
Include a desk and/or book shelf with art supplies and fun reading materials to give them options of activities they can do to enjoy their new space.
Create a sanctuary for your child. This will take their mind off of the relocation. For girls- build her a vanity she can feel like a princess at. For boys- How about a race car rug and a new pack of cars as a house warming gift?!
The phrase "If momma ain't happy, AIN'T NOBODY HAPPY!" is just part of the puzzle. Step one is to make the kids happy so momma has some peace in her life. ;)
This one, simple step to take in buying a new home will make a huge difference for the whole family!
Have fun with it, and enjoy the time together!
If you get stuck, Pinterest is a great place to find ideas!
Happy building together!

"Build a fun space for your children!"
There is much to say about working in a field that satisfies you- about taking a career that you feel was meant for you.
The statistics about unhappy workers in America are ASTOUNDING! Just do the research, and it won't take long to find how many people feel "misplaced" in their workplace.
The deciding factor to start my real estate career came at the perfect time in my life. I was given a golden opportunity, and I went for it! My alternatives at the time seemed less than desirable, so I took the leap of faith, gathered my resources, and ventured into something I turned out to absolutely love!
Sometimes it just takes an ounce of courage, and a pen to write down the goal! So my advice today that you can soak in over the weekend is this: Don't settle for a job you know you'll be miserable in. Even if you need to take a temporary dreaded position to pay the bills- Set a goal. Write it down. Post it on your wall, your bathroom mirror, wherever you'll see it daily. Work towards it. And eventually you'll find that taking the leap towards your dream isn't so hard after all.
For me, my day job IS my passion. With obstacles, hurdles, and all, it is totally worth it. I get to represent wonderful clients, help families find the perfect home, and I get to live in the most beautiful city of Vero Beach, FL!
I entitled this post "My Day Job Vs. my Passion" to get you thinking about your current life situation. I encourage you today, and every day, to set a goal, and work towards that vision inside your heart.
Have a wonderful weekend!

I was driving down the road today, and it hit me more than ever just how many people are in Vero Beach, Florida during season. Since November first is typically the beginning of the rush, I can usually expect to spend an additional 10+ minutes to travel anywhere I need to!
...But in real estate that's a good thing!
It means people are down here. They are warm. They are enjoying time away from their busy life up north. ...They are possibly with their families. Or possibly on the beach. OR MAYBE, just maybe, they love it so much down here that they are searching for the perfect home to make their own!
MEANING, it's a perfect time to make them feel at home down here!
We, as agents and sellers, should make buyers feel at home when they are looking at possible locations to make their own. Staging is all about helping a buyer envision their life in your property.
So my thought for the holidays is this: When you are staging your home to sell, stage it as cozy as possible. Without making the place look cluttered, add a touch of warmth to the home. Maybe a nice wreath. Maybe some fall colors or fragrances. A little bit of 'north' in sunny Florida is OK!
Because home buying is often an emotional experience for buyers, the holidays are a perfect time of year to create an atmosphere that best suits for the occasion!
SO! go to a crafts store. Buy a fall-colored wreath and a pumpkin-spiced candle, and bring on the snow birds!
