Inspiration . . .

“The danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim to low and achieving our mark.”   Michelangelo


Did you know that . . .

The amount of tropical rainforest cut down each year is an area the size of Tennessee?

The only continent with no active volcanoes is Australia?

The United States has more personal computers than the next 7 countries combined?

If people are offered a pen to test, 97% of them will write their own name?

Mickey Mouse was the first non-human to win an Oscar?

The lion on the Metro Goldwyn Mayer movies that roared actually lived in Memphis, Tennessee?

Bradley, Voorhies and Day were three men who designed a line of men’s wear.  Today we know this line as ‘BVDs”!

The most powerful earthquake to ever hit the United States occurred in 1811 in New Madrid, Missouri.  The quake shook more than one million square miles and was felt as far as a 1,000 miles from its epicenter.

If the ice floes of Antarctica were to melt, they would raise the ocean level by 240 foot submerging a quarter of the world’s land.

In real estate, it is important that all offers or counter-offers have a time limit to it.  Without the time limit the party receiving the offer may sit on it for a long time and still be marketing their property.  The only option the party making the offer would have at that point would be to cancel the offer (as long as it had not been accepted by the receiving party).  This would in effect kill the deal and the parties would have to start from the beginning if they were interested in making the deal happen.

If you are thinking of buying or selling, talk to a REALTOR who can give you the information you need to make an informed decision.

As always, if I can help with any of your real estate needs, please feel free to text or call me at 615 417-8182 or email me at
