Exterior 2

My recent 2 bedroom listing that went under contract in 3 days. We had 2 offers.

On Saturday, I tweeted an article from The Washington Post titled "Buyer's Market for Houses is Fading." This declaration led to a frenzied back and forth with one of my twitter followers about whether or not DC ever had a buyers market.

One of the best parts of being a real estate agent is helping your friends buy a place.  Sometimes, they even want advice on furniture, paint and accents.  *which i love*

wth?

Once again, I'm uninspired by the new listings this week.  I'm bored.  Let's laugh instead.  

Sometimes, listing photos make you scratch your head and say "wth?"  A few of my favorites below:

Do you have art/accessories on your walls that make you shudder every time you glance at it?  I do.

riveting rooms

Osborn-Architects-7
Mid century modern homes are an enduring love of mine.  This one in California has all the classic elements I enjoy but has been reinterpreted for contemporary living.  The entire house is striking but my favorite room is the entry way.  The Lalique flower chandelier, pops of orange with the bold art and the driftwood table contrast beautifully with the wood paneling.  Who thought wood paneling could be chic?

dive in

Pool-overlooking-cannes
It's been so hot the last couple of days, I've dreaded going outside and I can barely concentrate.  In fact, all I want to do is dive in a pool.  This one over looks Cannes.  Not a bad view, right?  It'll only cost you $23 million. A girl can dream…

Novel novels

Novel-novels-julyWhile I was at the beach over the 4th of July, I read six books and only two were worth mentioning (besides the Dark Tower series but I won't bore you with that obsession.)  Don't you hate that?

Color-swap
A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned wanted new slip covers for my couches. Currently, they're rust like the first picture.  I also have blond mid-century furniture and I've loved the look for years.
