What’s happening in Charlotte?

Want to move to Charlotte? Wondering what Charlotte Market looks like!

Here is a little teaser!

As a native I have seen Charlotte change so much – It’s crazy!

Throughout Charlotte, you’ll find all sorts of diamonds and gems to consider your new home. The lifestyle, culture, and neighborhoods truly make you feel at home. As developments and communities grow, it’ll only get better.

Pricing is rising, however, that is to be expected with all the growth and development. Right now things are a little slow, but will likely pick up as it usually does in the summer. This is a great time for buyers to hit the market with a game plan.

In any case, let me be completely honest with you. The waiting game is not what it’s cracked up to be. A $425k home could be $447k in a matter of six months! That’s all it takes! Six months can turn into thousands of dollars. Do you have a game plan? I do! 

Let me know if you want to chat about the market or your real estate needs! 🙂

NC Real Estate Agent , chp 3 Section 3.

From real estate paralegal to real estate agent.

From passing closing documents to real estate contracts.

Oh my have I been through quite the roller coaster ride.

2 years ago – headed to the law firm.

Working for attorneys will teach you to three things: read everything twice, pay attention to detail, and lastly when in doubt just say you don’t know.

Your word is super important and I rather you be honest and knowledgeable than carelessly move forward with whatever.

Be sure to read through everything thoroughly. Lawyers are trained to clarify (usually in detail) and spice of language for contracts. Understand what you are signing.

Paying attention to detail can easily save everyone involved some time. Imagine recording a deed to a home and the Parcel ID or grantee name is wrong 😑. Simply mistakes happen but in this world you learn from them and they don’t happen again.

Real estate school is something else too! Some attorneys would even say the NC state test is harder than the BAR exam! 🤯 I can’t imagine. I would prefer going to school longer for this type of test. I also wish upfront cost were there for people to know as well.

Being a real estate agent is new for me. Just the agent part. I’ve been touring and working in homes since I was 8 or 10. Now I just have the luxury of helping people secure their home and their bag 💰.

I’ve watched this city grow and am excited to be a part of it. Welcome home y’all 🏡

Cat in the bag

These two are so different it’s ridiculous.

Pictured below is Tails. She is a true tuxedo cat. She is shy, scared of most things but loves to cuddle.

She hates loud noises but enjoys lounging in sun spots and home made forts.

Below is Mushka, she is a new age tuxedo, grey in color. Spunky and mischievous that one 😏 is all over the place. Literally every morning she has to see the birds morning routines. Even the neighborhood strays and her say they’re greetings.

She will carry a whole conversation with you too! She likes to get on our shoulders and lie down. Maybe she was a parrot in another life.

They are both great in their own ways. I’m just glad they can share the same space peacefully (well sometimes).

I actually call the baby, Mushka the monster, when she is bullying her sister. She goes through phases where all just wants is to play. Tails is never a fan.

She would just like to sleep alongside her and sniff her once in awhile. Haha!

You can find these two cool cats on Instagram @tails_tells_tales

It’s getting cold.

I’ll just leave this here.

Shenanigan is my middle name

Who says I am thirty years young?…. *Cough Cough* well, for starters my mom, the government. But you know who to say. Bae thinks I have been seven years old this entire time we have been dating. Heck I’d be fourteen if you just counted the birthdays we’ve had together.

Anyway, all that to say. I am a child in the eyes of most men. Here, let me prove it!

I am on Instagram TickTock Facebook and Twitter. I have several accounts I do the most with my personal account (ohhsilly) it’s more of the day to day shenanigans 😬. This is the only place for blogging you now.

Until next time, xoxo

Also Happy Hump Daaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyeeeeeeeeeee!

The only PROOF I need!

Meet my adorable nephew, CJ! Every time I see this photo, I scream!

I want to take the time to thank my sister for having such amazing kids! You kind Sir will never disappoint! LMFAO!

Not sure if the prints were order, knowing his mom she was more annoyed with this look.


Let me tell you something though! I want this framed. This is my dude! Happy Saturday y’all!

Feel free to share, create GIFs, and memes. This without a doubt should go viral!

Love you mean it!

Chapter Three

Journey with me…

Life has a funny way of teaching/showing you things on time so you can prepare yourself. Not everything is promised to prepare you. It’s cray what bullets I’ve missed on this journey — I am so grateful. For life is precious and any sudden move can change your direction. I am blessed and I am thankful!

There has been so much going on, I have been all sorts of all over the place. With all of the changes, stresses and *whispers* of anxiety, I have been managing — for solutions are the result of not giving up. I’m fine-tuning my schedule and making choices that serve my morals, passions and goals!

Growing up is never-ending, that’s what I like about it. My favorite part has been always questioning what they tell me. “They” being everyone, haha. Please understand, I am painfully technical most times. Chose your words wisely. Communication need not run out of style, guys. Feelings and opinions are just that, and I prefer the things that don’t change. With that being said, I have always questioned labels; the fact that they exist, the definitions of them, and how we the people may easily misuse them. My poor mother, hahaha! Let’s just say, there is always something to chat about.

Things that you typically think to continue to grow: nails, nature, hair, blah blah blah. What I would like to challenge you to do is… Grow your level of awareness and compassion. Grow that closed mind, if applicable. Try something new, eat new food. We can only experience and grow as individuals if we let ourselves. If you are normally stuck in your ways, then things in this field will be hard. Stick with it and you shall prevail.

Feel free to follow more of my journey @mindfulfourcorners on IG, Facebook, and Youtube.

Moving on… This is random but I am totally on to something. Bare with me… I was thrown into residential homes at an early age. Before my teens, I would join my dad and help him do hardwood floors. We often ran into my godfathers, who also do residential trade work. I will have a post later about that type of life. For now, here is a picture of me getting down and dirty.

If you are in the Charlotte, NC area or surrounding counties and want a quote for your hardwood floors, give’m a shout! Forte Floors 704-605-4036. Quality is the Forte difference!

On May 4th I passed my NC Real Estate exam. Oh, how it feels to be done with that. For so long I was working in a real estate law firm. It was cool to be on that side of things. With that and real estate school, I learned so much about owning a home and the law on real property. I feel as though 30% of the information should be taught at some point in high school. Let me not address the school system though.

As a realtor, my goal will always be to protect my client, whichever side we are on. I know the land and my upbringing has helped me see the cost of trade work and repairs. With a wide range of homeownership resources and knowledge, I plan to be the BEST! I can’t wait to see what is to come. If you are looking to buy Real estate in North Carolina, let me know!

On the 24th I got back to work and am loving this new law firm. My direct supervisor is the bee’s knees. I feel like I found a distant family member. She is so kind and compassionate. So giving and sweet! I could brag about her all day but I am not sure how much time you have. At this firm, there is a great balance of work and life. I am not a number and I am respected — crazy how hard that is to find, smh. We will talk about work environments later. Anyway, I can’t wait to see what we accomplish together as a team. Those who know me know my work ethic and skill always produce success.

Well, I have completed all of my personal goals before my 30th birthday! Next on the list will be stocks, savings and working on my health. The bigger more public things would be starting my store for Applesauce Chronicles. I am excited to say I will have items made and/or designed by yours truly. The goal is to be running before Christmas! I can almost guarantee you that you want some of our stocking stuffers!

I hope you all are making goals for yourself! If and when you put your mind towards something that serves you, the universe will reward you. Stay true to your manifestations and just keep swimming!

Saturday afternoon, lookout for a post and pictures from my dirty thirty celebrations! Peace and love!
