Finding a realtor that will meet your expectations can be difficult, ask these questions to help make your important decision.

Having the right real estate professional by your side can greatly improve your home–buying experience. A good rule of thumb is to interview a minimum of three candidates.

A great Realtor can be a treasured asset to your home sale, but only if that Realtor is doing his or her job right. Some Realtors, unfortunately, are more of the “post and pray” type, choosing to put up a sign, posting in the multiple listing service (MLS), and then forgetting about you. But for your Realtor to get the job done, he or she needs to be out networking, getting the…

Sometimes it seems that the more birthdays we have, the less exciting they get. Of course, the alternative to having a birthday is not at all attractive. So as we get more ‘mature,’ we can look back on the best birthdays we’ve ever had, and share the excitement with the little ones. After all, they’re always ready to celebrate and have a party, especially if it’s their birthday.


I’d like to take this opportunity to wish our fabulous office manager, Amber, a very happy Birthday, on November 1.  Amber actually started working with us part-time before she got out of High School. After graduating she became full-time and eventually our office manager. She now has a little one, Tanner, to help her celebrate and I’m sure they will…

If you’re looking for a good local mechanic I would highly recommend Johnson Brothers Auto Repair at 352 Revere Street in Kingsport. This is a family owned business that I personally have been doing business with for over 30 years.

Mousey Johnson (Bobby Johnson Jr.) took over the business from his father Frog Johnson (Bobby Sr.) several years ago. Originally they only worked on VW’s but after Frog retired Mousey started branching out and today they’ll work on most any make or model. I met Mousey and Frog in 1980 when they rebuilt the engine in my 1969 VW Campmobile.  They are honest, and do quality work at a fair price. If it turns out to be a problem that they don’t have the experience or equipment to repair they’ll tell you. In my opinion there…

I recently read an article in the Wall Street Journal about Millennials that I found interesting. One of several facts is that the millennial segment of our population (75.4 M) is larger than the Baby Boomer population (74.9 M).  While there seems to be some debate as to the exact date range Millennials were born it appears that individual’s age 24 – 27 fall into the category, and they’re peaking in their need for careers, and for homes.

In order to appeal to this generation, retailers need to provide a seamless customer-facing retail experience. Whether this is online or in-store, millennials seek customer service professionals who understand their preferences and make recommendations tailored to their specific needs.

Thinking of selling? Now maybe the time.

 Fall may be an ideal time to put your home on the market. Buyers who are the housing market between Labor Day and New Year’s tend to be the most serious buyers we have. They’re not just looking they need a home and they need now. Housing inventory in the Tri-Cities continues to decrease. There are fewer home on now on the market and there have been in the last 10 years.

Don’t think people only buy homes in the summertime. Empty-nesters are those folks who just sent the last child what college are seriously considering if they really need all that extra space. Often times they’re looking to downsize and now is the time they start the search.

Younger couples who have been renting are deciding it’s…
