rose king friendswood realtor: How to be the agent everyone likes to work with - 06/18/14 03:52 PM
In the real estate business, we have the opportunity to work with all types of brokers and agents. Most of them are nice, but some are not so. There are a few in my area that I really don't like working with because the experience is usually difficult or just not pleasant.
 
It's a shame, because being THE AGENT EVERYONE LIKES TO WORK WITH is really simple. I put together a list of some things all agents could do to make working with other agents a pleasing experience. I'm sure you can think of some other things (feel free … (129 comments)

We have been spending a little time in New Mexico, visiting my mom for her 80th birthday. This time we decided to stay in a hotel, and were looking forward to a beautiful view of the mountains from our hotel room. When we got to our room, we opened the curtains…and here’s our view! 
 
 
Oh, well! Guess we should have checked the view on Travelocity, as the commercial says!

rose king friendswood realtor: Active Rain Math - 04/20/12 09:50 PM
1 Active Rain referral + 2 boys fishing = 3-day quick sale!
 
Last week I received a listing referral from Active Rainer Brian Rugg. On Saturday, I met with the seller and got the listing. On Sunday afternoon, I went back to take pictures, and on Monday, I got an offer, before there was a sign in the yard and before the listing was on the MLS! Now, that was a quick sale!

When I was taking pictures of the pretty pond in the neighborhood, I saw two little boys fishing, and took pictures of … (14 comments)

rose king friendswood realtor: Have you ever tasted a Korean pear? It's my new favorite fruit! - 12/16/11 12:09 AM
I have a new favorite fruit – a Korean pear! One of my past clients stopped by to see me at the office this week with an 11-pound box of Korean pears, a thank-you gift for helping him and his wife find a home. I had never tasted a Korean pear before, and boy, was I ever missing out! They are delicious! They taste sort of apple-ish with a hint of pear, and are very sweet and juicy.
 
Korean pears are huge! They are as big as a large grapefruit, and one person cannot eat a whole one. Each pear … (7 comments)

rose king friendswood realtor: December Season of Celebrations and Sharing - Santa Claus is Coming to Friendswood Saturday – on a Fire Truck! - 12/13/11 12:45 AM
Santa Claus will be making his annual tour of Friendswood neighborhoods this Saturday, Dec. 17. The Friendswood Volunteer Fire Department will be giving him a ride all around town on one of their big red fire trucks!
 
There is no set schedule for Santa to visit each neighborhood, so you will just have to listen for the siren as the fire truck makes it way down each street. He always seems to show up in Wilderness Trails in the mid-afternoon, but only Santa knows what his schedule will be this year.
 
Santa and a few of his helpers will … (6 comments)

I found this charming whimsical Christmas tree on the Alvin Christmas Tour of Homes last weekend. It was cute as can be, and I found it tucked into a corner of the sweetest little girl’s room. I loved the ornaments she put on her special tree, especially the snowman with a carrot nose!
 
Merry Christmas!
