Christmas Giveaway!

Some people say Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year, and for the most part I agree with that. But it surely can be stressful. I feel like it is an endless game of coordinating schedules, who is buying what present for who, what party or event is happening on that date, when are my kids Christmas programs at school or church, and the list can go on. On a side note, does anyone feel like you are...

Valentine’s Giveaway!

It is so hard to believe that Valentine's Day is next week! There is no worse feeling in life than being that sucker that is at CVS at 5pm on Valentine's Day with all of the other men trying to find a $5 card that really doesn't even say anything you would ever come up with, not to mention trying to find flowers that aren't half dead since you waited too long. I am gonna help you out! I am giving away a...

This is the ’05!

The '05 is my favorite zip code in Fort Wayne, but I am partial because it is where we live! The '05 has so many beautiful homes, iconic tree lined streets, parks, restaurants, and coffee houses. We love living within minutes of all the great development in Fort Wayne and we love the charm of our home. In 2019 I will be focusing on neighborhoods in Fort Wayne and highlight some of the amazing people and...

Shop Local!!

Here we are, in the midst of the holiday madness. I have always loved Thanksgiving - a day to spend with family, eat an unreal amount of food, and spend time reflecting on what we are thankful for. It is sad that it has become a stepping stone to Christmas shopping, but it is what it is. Our family has always enjoyed spending time on Friday outside for the #OPTOUTSIDE campaign, and small business Saturday....

Neighborhood Pride – My TED Talk

I had the incredible opportunity to speak at TEDxFortWayne this spring and many of you have asked where you can watch my speech. I have always admired TED talks and when I saw that the conference was accepting speakers I thought I would apply and see what happens. The theme was Resurgence, and I figured I could at least share something about how I feel like the real estate market is seeing growth and...

Fort Wayne Development Update

I feel like I say this every time I write a blog about Fort Wayne, but there is some exciting things happening in our city! There are significant updates and monumental efforts being placed into revitalizing our downtown! You can read about it on previous blogs of mine. We have the abandoned GE campus being redeveloped, the Riverfront Fort Wayne initiative, and several other development projects around...

What is My Home Worth?

What is my home worth? I get asked that a lot from people that I meet. I usually try to give ballpark answers, but it is really hard to do without seeing the comparable sales for neighborhood, accessing updates, analyzing market trends, and being able to understand the local market. Sure you can go to Zillow and see what their Zestimate is, but would you rather a computer use information that it finds on...

Fort Wayne is still a HOT Market!

I previously wrote about Fort Wayne being one of the hottest markets in the United States. You can read that article here. A recent article on Realtor.com has ranked the 46815 zip code in Fort Wayne as the 17th hottest zip code in the country. They have several metrics for what makes a zip code a "hot" zip code. They include: relative affordability, shares of millennials, millennial ownership rates, job...
