    I'ts a lazy Sunday in the Daugherty household. No real estate appointments, kids enjoying playing outside, and I'm personally in my happy place - in my PJ's, on the couch, Texas Rangers playing Detroit for a Noon game with PIZZA in my hands.

Yesterday I wrote what I though would be an informative, but maybe boring blog post about doing final walk throughs with my buyers. Nothing controversial, nothing to read that would just knock your socks off - but concise and informative nonetheless. To my absolute surprise and astonishment, it b...
In the days leading up to the closing of your new home, there's a few items you shouldn't forget to check off your to-do list. One of them being "Do a Final Walk Thru". A final walk-thru is NOT: a chance to go back and ask for more repairs to be made (assuming no further damage has been done sinc...
CONFIDENTIAL DOCUMENT SHRED DAY Everyone has those personal and confidential documents that need special attention when it comes time to get rid of them. If you find yourself one of these people, you'll want to take advantage of  a free community event brought to you by the City of McKinney and B...
Ahhh, moving day! You've done your best to sell your friends on how FUN moving day will be - with THEIR help! Maybe you've promised the standard "beer and pizza", or "I'll help YOU move if you help ME move". You've probably also recruited those friends with the biggest and baddest trucks. You do ...
