Just Sold

Today my buyers closed on this mid-century home, which they plan to rehab while maintaining some of the original beauty. Terrazzo floors are hidden below current flooring and are ready to be exposed and shine again! 

The Lofts at Savannah Park

Sometimes, in between selling and buying, a client needs a place to rent. Today I toured the new Lincoln Property Company’s development at Savannah Park in Sanford. The decor is fresh and modern, with 24 hour amenities for residents to enjoy. Eight different floor plans are available to meet most people’s needs. Short term leases are also available. 

For Rent

Today I showed this house which is for sale OR for lease. The home was built by Morrison Homes in 2004, and is nestled on a quiet cul-de-sac in Lake Forest. Call for more information.

Under Contract

Under contract in just 3 days! Want a quick offer on your home? Decorate just like this seller. She could run a clinic on decorating and staging. This is the second home I have listed for this client and the second time we have received a contract within a few days on market. Take a look at these pictures – this is what buyers are looking for. Not into the “Pottery Barn” look? Serious buyers are.


Just Listed

This is the one! Make an appointment to view this beautifully decorated 4 bedroom, 2 bath home in Woodsong. The layout makes use of every square foot and features an inviting foyer, separate living and dining area, a kitchen with a breakfast bar open to an eat-in area and large family room. Bedrooms are split 3 ways. The flooring is newly updated with a hand scraped look laminate flooring in the formal living and dining area, master bedroom and one of the guest bedrooms. Ceramic tile flooring can be found in the kitchen, baths and family room. Owner has installed upgraded decorator lighting and ceiling fans throughout. New buyers will enjoy a new oven and microwave, newer refrigerator and dishwasher, and recently installed mother of pearl backsplash. The laundry room is located off the kitchen with a utility sink located in the garage. New washer and dryer remain with the house. Interior was recently painted with neutral decorator colors, and the exterior was painted in 2012. Master bedroom features a walk in closet and attached master bathroom with a soaking tub and separate shower, and double sinks. Three additional bedrooms have been updated and share a 2nd bathroom with a tub/shower combination. The spacious family room overlooks the back patio and private, fully fenced yard with no rear neighbors. Whole house gutters, professionally landscaped yard, and an updated security system with motion sensors, cell phone back up and fire detection add to the desirability of this home.

Astor Grande at Lake Forest

Today I toured Astor Grande at Lake Forest, a new gated development by MI Homes. The sales manager invited agents to view the available inventory ready for a quick close. My two favorites were the Essex priced at $428,990…..
and the Brookshire II priced at $464,990.

The Brookshire II is on a beautiful lot with mature trees and an empty lot to the right which will never be built on. This affords lots of green space to enjoy and a more spacious feel.

Price Reduction


Today my seller agreed to a price reduction and we are now ready for a contract at $306,000. Make an appointment to view this former Taylor Morrison model with a main floor master suite.

Reclaimed Lumber

What a find! We have been searching for a local source for reclaimed barn wood and lumber. In Oviedo we found Gleman and Sons, a supplier of all types of reclaimed wood and some exotic lumber. We bought enough for a fireplace surround, and may return for barn door supplies and a track for the office. Visit www.GlemanAndSons.com for more information.
