Happy Times

So, the coolest thing just happened. Ava and I heard a bird fly into one of the big windows that look out on deck. We went out to see if the little guy was okay (and honestly I didn't want Ava "playing" with a dead bird) and he was just standing there, a little off to his side, panting like crazy. I picked him up and he finally closed his mouth and stopped panting. We paced up and down the deck, rocking him a little and petting him and telling him it would be okay. I tried to put him down on the deck rail but he wouldn't let go of my finger so we just walked some more. Finally, he actually looked up at me like "OK, I'm ready now" so I put him on the rail again and he flew over to a tree!!! I was shocked. He stayed there until I got my iphone, snapped this pic of him and then flew off to Acadia. Love it.

Hurricane Showings...

Not really, Irene is only a tropical storm now.... showed Ravenscleft at noon to buyer who wanted to see the wave action in the storm. It was quite pretty. Sound was really cool, wish I had thought to video instead of just taking a few pics with iphone.

Most important....

Life gets crazy sometimes but all I have to do is look at this crazy little Yorkie to know it is all worth it. I LOVE THIS DOG! :-)

Found this pic online of her as a puppy, in her former home. We didn't know each other then but we were just patiently waiting to meet... Thank you God for making that happen.

Bangor Daily News on Maine Real Estate Market

I was happy to be quoted in today's BDN article about our market. The writer, Matt Wickenheiser DMd me on Twitter this morning and I gladly provided a quote on Bar Harbor's market. Amazing how fast things can happen with social media. His writing is great and informative and he really captured the essence of today's market.

Captain Lindsey House in Rockland

Had fun doing the new website for my new listing. Check it out at - beautiful property and it has all four of my top requirements: location, business, potential and condition.

All this does is makes me want to buy....

1. Naples, FL
> Expected price drop: -16.6%> Median family income: $62,800 (137th highest)> Unemployment rate: 10.5%> Median home price: $225,000 (40th highest)> Projected to hit lowest level: Q4 2012
Like much of southwest Florida, Naples was one of the fastest-growing communities in the country as it prepared for the millions of baby boomers on the cusp of retirement. When the housing bubble burst, however, the thousands of construction projects for condominiums and retirement communities were halted or lost money, and home values plummeted. From peak home value in 2006, prices dropped by 55%. They are expected to keep falling through next year more than any major city in the country. By Q1 2012, home values will drop an additional 16.6%, or nearly $40,000.

Ravenscleft in Seal Harbor

You know it is August when there are excellent showings on the gorgeous trophy properties. LOTS of interest in Ravenscleft. We truly believe we have it positioned to sell this season.

Smugglers - so serene

Carol took this photo at Smugglers today in East Boothbay - love it there.


Developing a new project... so far in my head... and starting to "collect" items that will magically gel to create the perfect environment - just tried to get this cool flag pillow but lost it to "another member".

Proud of my little girl..

Ava was such an angel at dinner on the dock of one of the Boothbay Harbor restaurants that are dog friendly - she is such a good girl.
