Kids Sense of Humor

May 4th, 2023 | By Charleston Fine Homes

Spring? Did you see my friend Spring? I think she walked right past us and let Summer walk right in the door. Fall and Spring are my favorite seasons, but enough about me.

What’s new with you? Did you buy tickets to the Wine and Food Festival and have a great time, or are you going to Tennis? I chose tennis this year. I was an avid player in my younger years and love the thrill of the crowd. (They also have fun food and beverages.)

January 30th, 2023 | By Charleston Fine Homes

We all have heard the statement “dress to impress.” At one time or another we have applied this to our selves. When you are thinking about preparing your home for sale, consider this statement and apply it to your home. Through consultation and staging, you are in fact “ dressing” your home to impress the largest number of potential buyers and stand out among the competition . First impressions are lasting impressions.

Strong Women

January 19th, 2023 | By Charleston Fine Homes

I come from a long line of strong women.

My paternal grandmother was unsuccessful in love (three marriages…) but successful in business. Her family admired her, even while we tried to avoid her strong opinions.
