In real estate, the number one question I get asked during the winter is “Are you busy?” The answer is always yes. But, it isn’t always the most obvious things. Sometimes being busy can be planning new things for my clients, continuing education, restructuring how I do things, and thinking of innovative ways to improve! But I don’t care who you are, everyone has off days where they want to sit around and ...Read more
This past year was probably my favorite year ever. My girls were such fun ages and we finally got into a flow, work was great, and my family and friends were overall healthy! Plus, I really discovered what I like to do and did it more often. My 2019 goal is to continue a lot of what I did last year. To do that, I decided to look back on the top five things I ...Read more
Whether you have never sold your home or it has been a long time since you last did, this post is dedicated to you.
My clients often ask how to get started, and I assure them they can already check off the first step: contacting me! Selling a home takes time, effective marketing (listing, staging, and reaching the right potential buyers), and an understanding of trends for your location. That’s all part of what ...Read more
This weekend, even if you didn’t get a chance to watch the whole wedding of Harry and Meghan, you probably still saw a few glimpses! I myself love seeing every single second of it and the various specials and articles.

It’s April 18 and you all know what that means… Tax season has come to an end! It’s that time where you are either super happy and getting money back. Or cursing your job and wishing you just stayed home (just kidding, I hope)!
If you are a lucky one who got quite a bit back, let’s talk about great ways to spend that refund. Since, let’s face it, it kinda ...Read more
Let’s be real here, I love the rambler style home. That’s what my family had when I was a kid in Texas, and I even have a slogan for it now: “Buy a rambler with Amber”!
So… why am I talking about split-level homes? Chances are you are living in one yourself, or someone close to you does. Maybe you’re just curious about the style.
Coming from Texas, I still remember moving ...Read more
The holidays: when downtime seems to be acceptable by everyone. While that time was so relaxing and enjoyable this past season, a slight dread has definitely set in this month. I felt like I needed to get back to everything I have been “putting off.” I started thinking of all my expectations for this year, and it is only January! No wonder resolutions can be so hard to keep!
One thing I am trying this ...Read more
Last month we had an appraisal done on our house, and while it hardly compares to what my clients with kids go through with their home showings, I promise you I understand the pure panic that might cross your face when you think your home isn’t ready to show. Getting the kids out the door, coming home and picking up the house, and all I can say is I am so thankful I have ...Read more
Presents are always a hard thing to get. Some people are amazing gift givers, and others shop like my immediate family does: the day before Christmas and I get the classic phone call, “Hey, I’m at Scheels, what size sweatpants do you want this year?” I have learned to love that phone call and I keep getting more and more specific on the sweatpants that I want, but when it comes to what to ...Read more
Tomorrow officially kicks off my favorite holiday of the year, and it’s really hard to contain my excitement! You see, for as long as I can remember, I have dreamed of being a mom, especially during Christmastime. In truth, I didn’t really dream of being anything else. I just pictured myself in yoga pants, drinking coffee and having fun playdates with other mom friends when I grew up. I dreamed of baking holiday ...Read more
