 have to say how proud I am to be part of RE/MAX of Texas!  Julie, Hope and I attended the RE/MAX of Texas statewide convention the last 4 days in Galveston at Moody Gardens.  The city of Galveston has come a long way since Ike.  It is a great place and definitely back in business. The convention was over the top!  RE/MAX of Texas celebrated it’s 35th Anniversary by providing us the absolute top speakers and teachers not only in the real estate industry but also in the world of technology and internet with classes solid for 3 days.  Wow great stuff!!!  Thanks to Richard Filip and his outstanding staff for cutting edge tools and education to make sure we remain the top in our market.  Also the Fun Night party at the Moody Gardens Aquarium and the Awards Gala, Casino Party the Doppleganger band wow what a great time!  And the best part, spending time with all our friends and making new ones from all over the state, who happen to be the best real estate people in TEXAS. Now back to work at LakeSide Dreams on beautiful Richland Chambers Lake, which is filling up by the way, ready to conquer the world!

Major Renovations at Northshore Marina
Northshore Habor 2Northshore Marina has seen a lot of boaters, sailors and
fishermen over the years. The docks have been and still are a safe harbor for
sailboats, fishing boats and cabin cruisers. The marina facilities were built
about 2001 and have been in operation since. Now the Northshore Marina boat
ramps, gas pumps and jetty are about to undergo major renovation. The jetty is
going to be ‘moved’. Part of it is going to be cut out and then rebuilt on the
windward side of the present boat slips to provide shelter for launching and loading. The gas pumps are also slated to be moved, re-configured and upgraded to 24 hour service.
The plan calls for dredging out to a 10 ft depth for the boat launch, the new channel and along the
seawall in the harbor.
A site inspection took place last Friday with a
representave from Tarrant Regional Water District and final plans were
submitted. After the plans are approved by Tarrant Regional the work will
commence.  Right now is a great time to do this work with the lake level down
almost 8 feet.  Silver lining to the low water level ?!?!!

As January pulls to a close,  we reflect on the month and are jubilant in what we have accomplished.  A year ago this week, we were moving furniture into our new building, REMAX Lakeside Dreams, and planning our Grand Opening!  It really seems like yesterday and we have been so blessed along the way.  We have many accomplishments to be proud of and have learned a lot along the way.  Our goal then was to still be here this time next year, and we have not only achieved that goal, but have exceeded any expectations that we may have had.

I came home from a Community Tour last night to a roaring fire, Tbone steak, a glass of Merlot and dark chocolate!  Boy, that husband of mine just keeps getting better!  And to think, it is not even Valentines Day yet!    John and I took  a trip down memory lane to the year in review and how much we have learned and experienced this year.  We no longer need maps to get us from one Subdivision to the other and believe me, we know every shortcut out here now! We have driven so many miles and back roads, that we both needed tires prematurely.  We have driven every tire kicker and curiosity seeker that we have come across from one side of this lake to the other. Maybe in hindsight not the best of approaches, but we were also in the curiosity stage and learning every step of the way.   To be honest, our percentages have not been great on turning those trips into transactions.  But the market is not what it  was and truthfully, we were just glad to see warm bodies at the Lake!  Even if they were just beginning a 5 year-long search!

Our goal is that those tire kickers will return and eventually buy on Richland Chambers!  Our mission is to sell this Lake!

We were told this morning by a web client(meaning someone who found us on the web)that was sitting in John’s office  looking at aerial photos(John hired a plane and went up and took these photos) of  lots that they had decided to use us as their real estate professionals because we have the most accurate and complete information on the web including, plats, aerial views, youtube videos, etc.!  Now that made me happy!  We have worked very hard to go above and beyond in this market!   And we would not be where we are without the help of  Lacey Ogburn and Anne Burgess behind the scenes at our offices doing all the detail work that they do.  Those two are the  best backup team that we have ever had!  Thank you guys for all that you do! You two are awesome!

As we begin the second month of 2010, we have some great opportunities for Lake exposure,  education and  fun scheduled.  We are going to be at the Dallas Boat Show promoting Richland Chambers Lake and Northshore Harbor Condos the first two weekends of the month, attending the REMAX  Awards Convention in Fort Worth the following week and setting sail on a four-day cruise for Valentines weekend with our Lakerz friends!  We will end the month by attending the Texas Association of Realtors Meetings in Austin.

The weather has warmed up this week and so has the Lake market! We had two waterfront listings go pending this last week!  Congrats to those sellers in doing what has been a challenge this last year for most sellers on the banks of Richland Chambers!     And speaking of banks we are banking on an active spring real estate market!  

Last week found us hosting the Lakerz social event at REMAX Lakeside Dreams.  We are so fortunate to  have been so well received by this community and we would like to thank everyone for being so supportive and for the many friendships that we have made.  Richland Chambers Lake is home to some of the greatest people that you could imagine.  And we are so thankful to God for giving us the foresight and ability to make REMAX Lakeside Dreams  a reality and become a part of this special community.         

We are excited to announce our new agent, Martin Ortiz, who is bilingual and has real estate experience in Michagan.  So, Martin is new to REMAX but not the real estate business and we are glad to have him aboard! 

Also, Congratulations to Karen Williams for being top producing agent  for December which was no easy task!  So, if you see Karen, congratulate her for an outstanding year! 

Karen was our top producing agent not only in December but for the entire year!
