Before & After
It's amazing what new owners and a few weeks can make in a house. 3121 Quitman is prime example.
About 8 weeks ago, this old home was in desperate need of a face-lift - well, it got it. Now the home radiates from the inside out. All hardwood floors have been exposed and refinished. A custom kitchen with grey floor tiles, granite, ss appliances, and glass tile back-splash. There is a two person high-bar for entertaining. Both full baths have been updated as well. Did I mention the master bedroom has a private bathroom? The house has a brand new gas-pac and 200AMP panel box - music to any agent's ears!
This 3bedroom / 2bath home is complete and shows amazingly. I personally have scoured the local Forest Acres/in-town market for homes that compare and let me just say - there isn't one. At $159,900, this old estate have been brought to 2014 and ready for a new owner.
3121 Quitman is located on a quiet (yet, oh-so convenient) tree-lined street. The neighbors have all visited during the renovation and are thrilled to welcome the new owners.
As always, feel free to call/text/email/send a raven if you would like to see this home.
(FULL DISCLOSURE: I have re-written this post 3x now. For the sake of my sanity and the wine bottle, let's hope this post actually publishes. Womp, Womp! All in all, it's the bomb-diggity!)
Come November in Columbia, Fall has finally made it's way to our #famouslyhot city. If it falls below 70 degrees, people are bringing out the boots, coats, jeans and best of all - chili is ah cookin'! This past Saturday, my Husband and I trotted on down to #5points with our hungry bellies to savor local flavor. The Five Points Annual Chili Cook-Off is definitely a thing to visit if you are in town. It's free admission and the chili is only a $1 requested donation per cup. You can basically eat a good, hearty lunch or dinner for under $5. The vendors are extra generous with their portion size and have all the fixin's to go along with their chili. Vegetarian? No worries, they have you covered too! AND, even better, all donations raised from the chili go to Camp Kemo. There are over 40+ chili vendors participating in the cook-off and another 10+ serving adult beverages, desserts, marketing vendors, etc. There is also an AWESOME band line up and kiddie jump castles/slides. It's a good ole time for all to enjoy. It seems like each year draws more people, gets more organized, and attracts some of the best, local chili makers. Feed your belly and soul all at once!
"To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations…" - President Wilson
November 11th is a day many of us celebrate and thank our military veterans for their service. It's a day companies/businesses give discounts and freebies to active/past service members. It's a day cities throw parades and on-lookers wave American flags. All of the past mentioned activities are appreciated, but do people in 2014 truly understand what being a Veteran or a soldier really entails? The intricate details of the daily life of a soldier are all-encompassing. The unknowns of possible deployments and trainings that cause missed birthdays/anniversaries/holidays/life events. They volunteer their freedom, so that we might have ours - such a selfless act when you stop to think.
A few weeks ago, I had just been grocery shopping, but forgot one thing on the list - toilet paper. My Husband stopped by Publix on his way home to save the day. Standing in line to check-out, a college dude asked to pay for the toilet paper - TOILET PAPER! My Husband just happen to still be in uniform on that particular day which provoked the college student to extend his gratitude by insisting on buying the toilet paper. After this, our faith was revived in our local USC college students. Cheers to you college dude! #RAK (random act of kindness)
I encourage us to remember that we should be grateful for our service members - not just today, but everyday. It's the small things and the act which truly matter. It's the toilet paper.
-Dedicated to the servicemen and women and their families - I salute you.
