Downtown Columbia Lot @ $89,900!

Heads up a level vacant lot just hit Columbia’s market for sale for under 100K!

This morning, Meredith Honeycutt, and I put 206 Highhill Drive on the market in the Woodhill Crest Neighborhood for $89,900.

Woodhill Crest is a pretty small, exclusive Downtown, Columbia, SC neighborhood just off of the Garner’s Ferry Corridor. The neighborhood was slow to take off because of “timing,” (the great recession) but Woodhill Crest has caught its stride as more homesites are now being built.

Woodhill Crest was a product of Wildcat Creek Development, which some years prior put King’s Grant on the scene, which was also slow to develop, respectively. That all said, a Downtown lot for $89,000 is an opportunity for a lot of people to build an expansive, executive style home. Think of it, vacant lots less than a half-mile or so away or whatever are fetching double and triple this number. The other way to get a Downtown lot is to raze an existing dwelling to build a new home for double or triple the amount…to attend Hand/Dreher. I’m not selling you, I’m telling you, this is a path to own a new, large home for a wildly different number than is currently available. You can see that folks are catching on to this simply by paying attention to the activity and uptick in recent construction in the neighborhood.

If you or anyone you know would like to know more about this half-acre lot in Woodhill Crest Neighborhood, please call/text Meredith at 803-319-7649 or email her @ Meredith@TheNeighborhoodRE.com.

Thank you!

KW | Renew, Energize, Donate Day!

Thursday is Keller William’s National “RED Day!”

What is RED Day, you ask? “Introduced in 2009, RED Day, which stands for Renew, Energize and Donate, is Keller Williams Realty’s annual day of service. Each year on the second Thursday of May, associates celebrate Mo Anderson’s birthday by spending the day away from their businesses serving worthy organizations and causes in their communities. RED Day is just another example of our commitment to each other and to the cities and towns where we live and work. Join us!”

Mo Anderson is one of the Grand-Poobahs of Keller Williams Realty International. While her official title is Vice-Chairman of the Board, her aka is the “Velvet Hammer.” I’ve seen her in action at various events, and the name fits. She’s also the author of,  A Joy Filled Life: Lessons From A Tenant Farmer’s DaughterShe’s also hilarious. Oh yeah, and she doesn’t like cussing. :-O

This year, given the Covid-19 restrictions on what we can do as a group in person, we decided to host an online style telethon whereby, if you’re inclined and able, provide our family and friends with the opportunity to easily donate one dollar up to a zillion bucks to Harvest Hope Food Bank on Thursday, May 14, 2020.

The Chair of this year’s RED Day committee, Eric Tucker, along with our Broker In Charge, Lori Carnes, and fellow REALTOR Meredith Honeycutt, and I toured Harvest Hope on Shop Road to get a first-hand vibe of what’s going on. Truth told I thought “the line” that was backed up all the way down Shop Road towards I-77 was a bunch of folks donating to the cause. I was incorrect. The long line that was being directed by police officers and orange cones was for folks receiving donations from Harvest Hope. I was taken aback and felt like a straight-up dumba**.  That all said, since I participated in that exercise, I have a new respect and appreciation of the need for what’s happening at Harvest Hope and our community.

Having witnessed what I saw combined with KW’s RED Day, be ready from a call or text from one of our office-mates or me as we attempt to ease some of the angst of our hurting community. Know this – The way Harvest Hope does it, $1.00 can provide five meals for those in need. Let that sink in for a sec…………….

I want to recognize in my small way the hard work of our new, awesome KW franchise. I love this company and all of what Mo Anderson helped create.

Thank you, friends, for anything you can do!!!

In The Center of Forest Acres @ $85K!

Check out this awesome opportunity in the middle of one of Columbia’s most popular neighborhoods!

Amy Cartin and I introduced this well priced Carriage Hill condo a day or two ago and it’s getting a lot of action! I’ll place the write-up below, but in my opinion, the star of this show is the location. Nestled smack in the middle of everything Forest Acres and only minutes to anything Downtown Columbia and I-77, this is an awesome place to live and not spend an arm and a leg.

Forest Acres is actually more than a neighborhood. It’s a small city with a mayor, council, police force, and actually encompasses many neighborhoods within its borders and is home to some of the best restaurants and retail in The Midlands. Everyone loves Forest Acres!

Please call/text 803-467-0712 or email Amy@TheNeighborhoodRE.com . As you can imagine we’re never more than a minute or two away from Clemson Avenue!

Thank you!

Thank You, Travis & Granger Owings!

Big shout out to my friends at Granger Owings Clothiers for firing up the troops and providing these awesome looking facemasks for our team.

As you may know, I was quarantined at the beach for a while, but my Granger Owings haberdasher, Travis Hollis, and I coordinated a drop-off of masks to our Team Manager’s house for our team members to pick up (Amy’s house is super centrally located).

Travis made the drop within a couple of hours after the order was made, and Amy separated the products into zip-loc bags for all to pick up, respectively.

Thank you to Travis and locally owned and Downtown Columbia, SC luxe signature clothing store, Granger Owings. The masks are top-shelf material and well constructed. They were packaged amazingly, complete fancy tissue and branded sitcker, of course! The service speaks for itself.

“GO” even made a super simple link for your mask orders.

Thank you, Travis, Amy, & Granger Owings for making this happen for The Neighborhood Company!

Shop your local neighborhoods, friends!

Quarantining Well @ “Black Magic!”

 

Given the Covid-19 pandemic, an opportunity to go to the beach came about. Personally, I went back and forth about it with all sorts of angst, asking Jennifer, “Nothing is open at the beach, and if we go there’s no tennis, no golf cart, no bikes, fewer TV channels, and on and on, and why would we move all of our crap there just to have the kids watch the same Ipads and tablets two and a half hours away?”

Well, that was stupid.

What was supposed to be a few days turned into over two weeks of the most amazing family time we could imagine. We quarantined our a*&^s off and what I mean by that is that there was absolutely no one on the beach. We had the entire edge of the earth to ourselves and watched the giant bowl churn angrily, and calmly, depending on the day.

If you know much about Star Wars, the sandy beach was so barren for as far as the eye could see, it reminded me of where Luke Skywalker grew up. Even Jennifer said, “This is weird.”

That all said, the days, weeks, blog post, and memories are all because of my in-laws, Stephanie and Jeffrey Black (Jeffrey is my late wife’s brother). Short term rentals at the beach were halted by the Governor of our state, and Jones Party of 5 and Aunt Steph and Uncle Jeffrey moved right into their beautiful house on the beach, “Black Magic” (Think, “MTV Cribs”). Their daughter, Liz Black Fisher, and her new hubby, Ryan, hung out both weekends. It was all just awesome and clinched this whole beautiful family even tighter.

Big shout out to Steph and Jeffrey for providing this amazing opportunity and thanks to my kids and wife for punching me a little bit for being a dumba#*.

Thank you and we love you, Aunt Stephanie and Uncle Jeffrey!!!

Ivey, “Le”Nora, Finley, Jennifer, and Franklin

*I have a ton more pics but they’re too big so I need to size them down a little.
