The first day of FALL has happened! The first day of fall 2023 was on Saturday, September 23, in the Northern Hemisphere. This is also known as the autumnal equinox, which is the day of the year when day and night are approximately equal in length all over the world.
We are excited and things are starting to change…. hopefully all for the better!
What is your favorite thing to do in the FALL?
August is ending and September will be beginning! Happy Labor Day Weekend to all!
Congratulations Bill Medlock on another Sold home!
This wonderful couple closed on their new home in Van Alstyne today. Thank you so much Jessica Jones for letting us be part of their new journey.

Yesterday I helped a family close on their first home after they’d been told by at least one other lender that it was not possible. If you work with a local lender who will take the time to review all your documents (tax returns) and ask questions to understand the whole picture you might get a different answer, or at the very least a game plan to follow to allow you to buy in the future. Yesterday was the day for this family!! And a huge shout out to Ven Vraniqi for working tirelessly to find them a beautiful new construction home that fit their budget, and to Tracy Koonce at Lakewood Title Anna for going above and beyond to get around needing an ICC Inspection! And to Paul Tharman for building a great home! In honor of their closing we are giving a donation to Humane Tomorrow to support their work to find homes for unwanted and abused animals in the DFW area. I’m grateful they chose our team so we can give back to our community.
Father’s Day is Sunday, June 18, 2023. How do you celebrate your father (or, honor his memory)? Did you know that Father’s Day is celebrated on the third Sunday in June in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, India, and a number of other countries around the world? Treat your dad with something nice!
We would also like to wish all those with June birthdays a very happy June birthday month. We think birthdays are very special! Did you know that the flower for June is the rose?
A little Real Estate Humor never hurt anyone!

It’s March—Happy New Year, ancient Romans!
Welcome to the third month of the year—or, if you were born before 150 B.C., the first! According to the oldest Roman calendars, one year was ten months long, beginning in March and ending in December. It may sound crazy…………. READ MORE https://www.rd.com/culture/month-of-march-facts/
It’s the best month for basketball (but worst for productivity)
For civilians, on the other hand, March is known for one thing above all others: brackets. March Madness, as the NBA calls it, runs from March 11 to April 2 this year, and the safest bet you can make is that lots and lots of people will be distracted…… READ MORE https://www.rd.com/culture/month-of-march-facts/
It’s also the best month for vasectomies
March Madness is a cherished time to reacquaint oneself with the couch, especially during the early tournament days when dozens of games unfold consecutively. In other words, it’s the perfect week to recover from a vasectomy! READ MORE https://www.rd.com/culture/month-of-march-facts/
March was named for war—and lives up to its title
So, if so many months were named for their Latin numbers, why wasn’t March called… unumber? Firstly, because that sounds ridiculous, and secondly, because the Gods had dibs on it……READ MORE https://www.rd.com/culture/month-of-march-facts/
Beware The Ides of March unless you’re a cat
We’ve all heard it uttered, but what does “beware the Ides of March” actually mean? On the Roman calendar, the midpoint of every month was known as the Ides. The Ides of March fell on March 15th. This day was supposed to correlate with the first full moon of the year (remember, winter didn’t count then) and marked by religious ceremonies…….
