King's Kitchen in Conroe, Texas

Do you ever get tired of eating at the same places?  Today a friend and I had lunch at a spot that all my neighbors in Panorama Village are raving about.  It has to be one of the best kept secrets in Montgomery County.  The meal was only $6.00 for an entrée, 2 sides, cornbread, salad and dessert.  All homemade!  I choose pork chops smothered in gravy, mashed potatoes and green beans with regular cornbread (jalapeño cornbread was also offered).  Although the mashed potatoes were thin everything else was a must do again!
Let's not forget dessert ... just imagine coconut chess pie!
Everyone was friendly.  The clientele seemed so happy to be there.  Although not expected, yes, I did tip.  There is a tip can on the buffet line close to where you pick up dessert.  I was thrilled to eat in such a pleasant atmosphere and can't wait to go back.

Summer is Here!

Summer is here and where have the days gone?  It's been a journey ... from selling our beautiful home in Legends Ranch (contract signed in Nov. 2013) ...

to the purchase of our home in Panorama Village (Jan 26, 2014).  We had a week of painting, a week of new flooring and then the big day of Moving In Feb. 13th 2014.  Just in time for Valentines we finally were able to celebrate being over the homeless feeling!

In the last six months we have also reconstructed the balcony supports, cleaned up the yard, painted the exterior, replaced a spa heater, adopted a puppy (Twiggy) ... and hosted guests for a Wedding!  There have been gardens planted and fun in the sun.  Now, however, to Twiggy's dismay, it's time to come out of the yard and get back to sharing my time with Real Estate!

The Real Estate market in our Houston area is fast and furious with many good changes.  If you are ready to put your home on the market then by all means know where you are going, have a local mortgage officer working on your finances, and be aware of how much you are going to spend once you have made a profit on your home.
Speaking from experience, it's a long journey from Selling to Buying.  There were days I became totally confused and exhausted.  But the final outcome was a winner.  So if you are searching for a Buyers Agent contact me and let's get looking for your property
