With the weather finally rolling into a nice steady warmth, I've been enjoying some cycling and hiking and still find myself looking forward to more time in the woods and on the road. As the temps have been climbing, so has interest in real estate.
You can't watch a home improvement television show kitchen renovation without seeing an island become the focal point of the new space. Kitchen islands are one of our clients' most requested features and for good reason.
For many years, Country Cabinets, Etc. has been designing dream kitchens. Our experience indicates that there are several key components essential to creating an individual's dream kitchen that too often are not given due consideration. These elements include the following lighting, seating …
It is no secret we are already in the early stages of the summer buying season. If you are considering selling your home it is beyond time to call your local real estate professional and get the proverbial ball rolling.
I'm reminded of the good fortune in many sci-fi movies where someone gets their hands on an almanac from the future. Of course, they could use this information for good and perhaps alter the course of things in a positive way. Inevitably though, they (much like I would) use this information …
Being catfished or lured into a relationship by means of a fictional online persona is the plight of many single folks these days. You show up for the first "in-person" meeting and what you saw online is not what you now see. Suffice to say, nobody likes being duped.
