Welcome home....

We officially closed on our house on Tuesday and are now in complete renovating mode. Our General Contractor will begin demo in the next few days. It still doesn't even feel like this is our house and we have a long way to go, but Alex and I are enjoying the process. While they are working away at renovating the house, we are going to start clearing out the yard and trying to get it back to working condition. Should be a great season of learning how to take care of a huge yard. First thing is first...get the sprinkler system working and buy a lawn mower. :)

Just as a teaser, here are a couple pics to prove the NEED for renovation.....

Bush the size of our house.....

Ummmm.....enough said.
I have to give a shout out to our realtor, Sam Carratala with Keller Williams. Sam was our neighbor when we first moved onto Sherwin Street. He did an AMAZING job. He sold our house in 3.5 weeks, when most homes in our area are selling in an average of 45 to 60 days!!! Additionally, we moved into a very highly sought after area and he was aggressive in not only helping us find the perfect house, but also aggressive throughout the process through closing. The buyer of our old house and the seller of the new house both had quite a few issues causing potential delays in closing and Sam was great in keeping tabs on where we were in the process and following up with all involved parties. He kept it moving and helped us to close within our timeframe. We are so grateful to have a realtor that we trusted to have our best interest in mind and will use him if we ever need to move again. If you need a realtor, ask me for Sam's contact don't want to use anyone else!!!
