southport homes for sale: Are you soccer grandparents? - 05/30/09 08:22 PM
Today was a family day. 
First event was soccer for our 7 year old grandchild.  It is so much fun seeing the young ones learning life skills on a soccer field.  That is what we saw today.  When you are behind....you work hard to do the right things and to pull together as a team to make it work. 
We saw that happen today.
Then  to the pool to cool off.  What a great day.
Hope your day was great too..

southport homes for sale: Ping goes the realtor... - 05/18/09 03:57 PM
Thinking of PoP goes the Wessel.....
Today I have been working on social networks and getting more confused.   We started out with Twitter, then facebook, then My Space, and then ended with Ping. 
If we just worked on each one of these sites it would take hours to update each of these sites.
Hope that you all are doing better than I am right now.
Take care and stay in touch,

southport homes for sale: Blessed Rain.. - 05/14/09 08:11 PM
Today we had rain again.  Luckily we planted our seeds this past weekend and then the rain came. We had laid the garden out for the butter beans, sweet potatoes, squash, tomatoes, and cucumbers.   Then as an added bonus, Jimmy put in giant sunflowers to brighten the garden.
We will  enjoy fresh cucumbers and tomatoes for the 4th of July.
With you were here.

southport homes for sale: Best of the Best! - 05/11/09 02:30 PM
Hi All,
Today we were celebrated by our owners for being the "Best of the Best" with our company.  Criteria being that you have to have so many sales and so many listings in the first quarter of the year.  I think that is wonderful to be recognized for the hard work that you do. 
Our company provided us with a nice lunch and then talked with us about the market here in the Southport ~ Wilmington area of North Carolina.
It was very pleasant.

southport homes for sale: April Showers Bring May Flowers! - 04/02/09 09:30 AM
Oh what a glorious day..raining...and cool...and damp.
But I am not going to let that dampen my spirits. I know that in May the flowers are going to be beautiful.  I must have a thousand Azaleas and Camellias that will bloom in my yard.  It will be pretty for the Easter Holidays but the peak will come in May.  Orton Plantation is getting ready to be in full bloom.  If you should be in the area, check it out.
With warmest regards,
