Loyalty - In Business & Life “Respect is earned. Honesty is appreciated. Trust is gained. Loyalty is returned.” - Zig Ziglar Let’s talk loyalty. Have you ever really thought about how incredibly vital loyalty is in our relationships?  Whether it’s a relationship in our personal lives or those in our business life,  loyalty is a necessity in any relationship to be sincere and everlasting.  Without loyalty, there is no trust; without trust there truly is no meaningful relationship.  In fact, when explaining our agency agreements to buyers & sellers, I use the term LOYALTY, as I feel the definition of loyalty is one that is universally understood. Now, whether or not people ARE loyal, is another conversation! loy·al·ty /ˈloiəltē/ - a strong feeling of support or allegiance. Remember, loyal...

 HOMES WITH OWNER SUITES ON THE MAIN FLOOR IN THE GREATER CHARLOTTE AREA One thing my buyer clients increasingly have been asking for in the last several years is for a home with an owner's suite on the main floor. Part of the reason is that baby boomers are aging. Also, quite a number of my clients grew up in one-story homes and like the idea of having their bedroom on the main floor, even if they are purchasing a two-story home.  We often joke that Charlotte is the "home of two-story brick boxes," where an owner's suite is typically on the second floor. Fortunately, in recent years, more of our builders are offering homes with a first floor owner's suite, but they can still be hard to find. BENEFITS OF AN OWNER'S SUITE ON THE MAIN FLOOR Ideal for aging in place and not needing to navi...

 MORE PETS ARE LOST ON JULY 4TH THAN ANY OTHER DAY OF THE YEAR!How To Keep Your Pets Safe During July 4th Fireworks We might enjoy the Red, White & Boom of Independence Day celebration fireworks. But your pets ABSOLUTELY DO NOT LOVE FIREWORKS! Dogs and cats are frightened by fireworks, explosions and loud noises. Their first instinct is to run away to safety. Sadly, many of the dogs and cats that escape then can't seem to find their way home and are lost forever. Did you know that July 5th is the day when most pets are reported missing? That's because more pets go missing on July 4th than any other day of the year. So keep this upcoming Independence Day weekend a "pet-friendly" holiday. And just in case one of your four-legged family member(s) does run away, make sure they have easy-to-...
