A view from our window in Dubai

An ending to a wonderful Celebrity cruise from Venice to Istanbul was concluded in Dubai where “Everything is possible”.  This was a view from our room at the Ritz Carlton.  The buildings, the people, the food will all be remembered fondly.  Dubai is utterly amazing!!

Sisters with their daisies

Growing up on 2 acres in upstate New York brings back lots of memories!  My older sister Sue and I loved to pick daisies, make bracelets and put daises in our hair :).  Bouquets were always picked to be displayed proudly in one of the many vases mom had for our flower picking escapades.  It was a much simpler time in our lives….one that I cherish.

Another Closing for Dorie Dillard at 11232 Avery Station Loop
 
My buyers did their homework and now closed on the home of their dreams! They knew they wanted new construction and needed their current home sold to purchase. I listed and sold their home so they were in a position to downsize and write an offer with Grand Haven Homes in the “Cottages” at Northwood with no contingency! It may have taken slightly longer for the home to be completed than we anticipated but the floor plan, location and finish out selections made it worth their wait!  Working with Tessa … (21 comments)

 Dorie Dillard Closed Another Home in Canyon Creek NW Austin July 2014

My sellers found a move to a closer location to their children’s private school was in order. We found the perfect house, won the contract in multiple offers, closed and they moved in.
They kept their home well maintained so only needed to have paint touched up, windows and carpets cleaned and some vignette staging introduced to the home. Mike and Nicole are repeat clients and I am grateful they reached out to me to help them in this next move!
After 6 days on market the home was under contract and closed … (20 comments)

Bus Transportation System~Focus on the User
Recently we traveled to Dubai and were astonished to see in person how effective the RTA (Roads and Transportation Authority) has been planning and providing efficient bus traffic in the Emirate of Dubai! They created an effective and integrated transport system capable of achieving Dubai’s vision and serving the vital interests of the Emirate. Their philosophy of “Everything is Possible” in Dubai is one to be admired.

These bus stops (there are currently 900) are air-conditioned and complete with free Wi-Fi! It’s not a wonder people don’t mind public transportation! Thinking outside the box can make … (12 comments)

Handsome Hudson is going through a car and truck phase! We just returned from a 2 week vacation and missed seeing our grandson Handsome Hudson. He now officially entered the car and truck phase and loves to line them up in straight lines and let them travel together….he has a special bag he likes to keep them in…easy for transporting and so far he likes to put them away after playing.

We recently returned from a fantastic trip ~ a cruise with family that began in Venice and ended in Istanbul and a visit to Dubai!  A recurring theme from many we came in contact with in Dubai (including our guide) was the statement “Everything is Possible!”  I definitely agree this is the prevalent outlook adhered to in Dubai!  The Burj Arab Hotel is just one of the many achievements completed raising the bar to endless heights.

Hanging with Paw Paw

I love Handsome Hudson’s style...he is his own person. He likes his PJ’s to have stripes!   After an afternoon of swimming and dinner, it’s best to dress Hudson in his PJ’s... spend a little time to “hang” with Paw Paw viewing the video we made entitled "Hudson's First Spring break" and then crusie on home in his car seat ...... Ahhh......feels good......life is sweet!
