Back in the Saddle

It has been a while since I took time to write in my blog.  In my defense, the month of July was BUSY in real estate terms...not to mention the fact that I got engaged to my best friend of three years, Tim Peters!  Don't worry, though. I have no plans of changing my name and moving to exotic Scribner, Nebraska after our December nuptials!  I still plan to stay on as a full-time real estate broker at 1st Realty as we make our new life together.

Well, a lot has happened in the month of July.  We have seen between one and two new listings each week and we have also had the pleasure of closing on six homes with a variety of buyers from investment to first-timers.  The most bittersweet closing came at the end of June, though, when my neighbor and friend Shannon moved away after six years.  I have truly missed our talks in the front yard after mowing lawn or watering the flowers.  However, I am anxious to strike up a new friendship with the Ericksons who will be moving in gradually this fall when they sell the acreage they have called home for many years and officially move into town.  

As mentioned, July was a busy month for new listings.  We have seen listings from Wakefield to Wayne.  The home styles include everything from classic 1 1/2-story bungalows to 2-story square frame homes to ranch-styles.  Below are a few of those you have to choose from!

612 Winter Street, Wakefield

108 S. Lincoln Street

208 E 9th Street - SALE PENDING!

408 Douglas Street

903 Hillside Drive

705 West 3rd Street

916 Logan Street

523 Windom Street

In addition, our closings have provided a place to live for a variety of young families that will be making their homes in Wayne.  It was a pleasure to work with Adam Hoffman and his fiancee Ashley Becvar as they purchased 212 West 12th Street as well as Rick and Alyssa Bartek as they made 511 West 4th Street their home. Rosario and Maria Salcedo are also new home owners at 907 Winter Street in Wakefield.  It was exhilarating to see the excitement on all of their faces on their respective closing days!  July has been a great month for real estate in Wayne, and I hope the momentum continues in August!  Welcome Home!
