Keller Williams Palmetto Has Arrived, BIG TIME!!!

As many of you know we’ve been in Dallas, Texas for almost a week and I have a lot to unpack from such an awesome experience, and I’m not talking about my messy a** suitcase.

The first item I’m going to address is how proud I am of our Market Center. (Within our franchise, we refer to a KW independent real estate brokerage as a “Market Center.”)

Saturday night was a proud moment for me and a lot of others. Around 7:00 PM, 1,000 or so REALTORS from North and South Carolina gathered at The Hyatt Regency in Dallas to celebrate 2019. Collectively we broke all kinds of sales records. This (Carolina’s) Region is super strong and the enthusiasm and numbers show it.

What I’m really getting at is how proud I am regarding the pics above. If you know me, you’re aware that my real estate journey has been wonderful. My wife, Jennifer Sparks Jones, encouraged me to get into this industry when I had less than $200.00 in the bank (she paid my electric bill at 1919 Atascadero Dr. the month I was in real estate school, mind you).

Fast forward through endless stories of wonderfulness as well as hard life lessons learned, the top brass of the Carolina’s Region of the #1 real estate company on earth announced that we achieved the #2 status for Launching Market Centers in the Region! Even more exciting, in my mind, was that we were the #5 performing new Market Center within the Keller Williams Realty International system (KWRI). We are talking….on EARTH!!!

Our friends in The Outer Banks, NC (KW OBX) barely beat us out for the top spot in the Carolina’s Region, respectively. I’m not sure when their official start date was, but ours was April 1, 2019. Even so, I’m OK being just behind a cool beach town as the OBX price point is triple and quadruple Columbia’s.

When I took this leap of faith to be part of the Keller Williams family, I was told, “It doesn’t work like that,” and, “Franklin, you’re not going to be able to do that here.” 80 REALTORS on the KW Palmetto roster later and WE…. ARE…. DOING…. THIS!!

Congratulations and THANK YOU to everyone who is a part of this and helped get us here. Now the honeymoon is over as having the label of, “Launching MC,” it’s now time to compete and grow to what we can really become.

I can’t express through this keyboard how proud I am to fly the Keller Williams banner.

Join us!

Thank you!

Family Reunion @Dallas.

WOW, Check out those pics above!!!

Some awesome REALTORS from our Market Center (KW Palmetto) and almost 50 from Columbia’s three Market Centers landed in Dallas, Texas on Friday and will be here until Tuesday afternoon learning from the best REALTORS in the world, and the #1 real estate company in the country (sales, training, tech). We’re learning how to be the best we can be for our clients, our teammates, and most of all our families.

Let me ask you this, “Are you doing your job to the best of your ability, or are you doing the job the best way it can be done?”

Another “writer downer” that I love, “Are you a businessman that has a family, or are you a family man that has a business?”

When Geoff Woods, VP of The ONE Thing, said this to the breakout session today, I said to the people around me, “Boom, y’all.”

KW is my people….

The pics above were so cool to see as over 18,000 learning-based Keller Williams REALTORS are in Dallas, Texas from Thursday to Tuesday. Think of it like this. The amount of KW REALTORS that are at the “Main Stage” once a day would sell out the Colonial Life arena every time. After that, we all move to the break-out sessions that most apply to our individual businesses as some teams sell 300 – 3,000 homes/ year, and some REALTORS are brand new to the industry.

If you or anyone you know would like to know more about a career in real estate sales, or if you are currently a REALTOR and would like to know more about this company, please call/text 803-447-8683, email Franklin@TheNeighborhoodRE.com, or hit me up on FB. I would love to share what I know!

A big thank you and shout out to Dallas, Texas for having us and for putting on such a great show!!

Looking For F3, Dallas!!!

When I saw this FB post by our friend, and KW Operating Partner in Wilmington, NC, I felt like I needed to post up on this blog. After all, F3 is battleship propeller shaft strong in Columbia, SC.

I thought my F3 friends would like to see that one of their brothers was searching for a group in a major city during a gigantic convention of 20,000ish Keller Williams REALTORS.

Well done, Ladd! Some of my best friends in Columbia, SC are your F3 brothers and I know they’re happy to see you search for opportunities in Dallas!

See you in Texas, buddy!

Columbia, SC’s New Flag.

Two and a half years ago I wrote this post. Fast forward to today. The new design for the new City of Columbia, SC flag is official, barring some technical issues.

The Free Times & Post & Courier introduced this story, respectfully. That said, I’m not sure what to type here. I read Mayor Benjamin’s explanation and/or interpretation of the image, and I’m not bustin’ on Steve here, but I’m not sure I’m getting the connection.

To me, it’s almost like the artists are trying too hard. If we don’t have an identity, I’d rather see Columbia embrace the overused capitol building or dome, or incorporate the Palmetto Tree (overdone…I understand, but brand effective), or even a smiley face, for that matter.

The 19 flags above are some of the other choices that were under consideration.

The river thing we’d all love to identify with and embrace is kind of a stretch, and bringing up that the beautiful rivers were commercially important 200 years ago isn’t helping. Think of it – Yes folks walk on the riverwalk, but other than that and that some folks kayak or sit in an intertube, pretty much all we do with the rivers is drive over them. Adding a star to symbolize that we survived Gen. Sherman’s burning of the city during/after the war between the states is not inspiring to people born after anyone you know.

I live and love Columbia and our city is on a good and solid upward trajectory, but IMHO the image above does not symbolize who we are, what we want to be, or where we want to go.

For those who didn’t click a link above, I copy/pasted the text below –

Thank you!

It’s Official: Columbia Adopts New City Flag

Columbia City Council on Feb. 4 concluded a more than three-year, at-times rambling process of selecting a new city flag to replace the antiquated corn-and-cotton festooned banner that had flown over the city for more than a century.

Council chose a flag created by design studio/print shop The Half and Half. It features a deep blue field, with two lighter shades of blue and a streak of white flowing diagonally across the flag, with a six-point star in the left corner.

“It speaks to, I believe, not only who we are, but who we hope to be as a city,” Mayor Steve Benjamin tells Free Times. “It symbolizes the rich land that exists at the corner of the connection of the Saluda and Broad rivers, which form the Congaree and laid the foundation for [the city].

“The star references not only [being] the capital, but I think it also references, in a positive way, the resilience of this place after [the burning of the city] in 1865. In a way that’s positive, it hearkens back to our past.”

Council adopted the flag at the Feb. 4 meeting, and will ratify the decision at its next meeting.

The adoption of a new city flag was not a quick, or easy, process.

In 2017, City Council, with the help of the Columbia Design League, authorized an open competition for the design of the new flag. As a result, more than 540 designs were submitted. Out of those, 18 designs were selected as what officials referred to at the time as “finalists.” A group of vexillologists — experts in flag design — helped in identifying that group of 18. Subsequently, the public was invited to comment on that group of 18 flags, and more than 7,000 people participated.

But City Council didn’t take action after that initial process and, as noted in a September release from the Design League, eventually “determined that additional design criteria should be considered, with the hope of arriving at finalist designs that most accurately reflect Columbia’s history and spirit.”

Five designers — Samuel Choate, John Gehringer, Daniel Jones, Nick Julian, and The Half and Half — were then chosen to enter the final phase of the flag saga.

All five of those designers were among those who submitted designs in the initial process, and they were selected for the extended process based on public comment, input from flag experts and a jury review process. Each of the designers will get a $500 stipend from the city, and Half and Half will get $2,000 from the Columbia Design League and Columbia Flag & Sign Co.

The Design League and city advised the finalists that flag designs “should incorporate colors and/or symbols that represent contemporary Columbia and the diversity of people that live and work in the city.” The finalists also were asked to include “shapes or symbols that signify wings.”

The previous city flag was adopted in 1912. It is sky blue with the city’s seal in the center. On the right side is a spray of cotton, and on the left side is a stalk of corn with full ears and a tasseled top. (Corn and cotton were the leading crops of the area at the time of the banner’s adoption.) The old flag was designed by a local school teacher named Kate Manning Magoffin. She won $100 in a contest sponsored by the city and The State newspaper for her flag design efforts.

At-large Councilman Howard Duvall says, following the ratification of the new flag, he wants to formally retire the old one.

“I’d like to suggest that, when we get the new flag, that we have a flag replacement ceremony,” Duvall told Benjamin at the Feb. 4 Council meeting. “They do this in the military, where a battle flag is taken down and a new battle flag is put in place. So, let’s have some sort of short ceremony, where we remove the corn stalks and put in the newly vetted flag.”

Benjamin lauded the Columbia Design League and One Columbia for Arts and Culture’s Lee Snelgrove for their work on the flag process.

“I think it’s been about as inclusive a process as you could ever have,” the third term mayor said during the Feb. 4 meeting. “It also took into account a good amount of approval and dissent, all in the proper spirit that we’ve been trying to achieve here.”

2020 SuperBowl “Sights”.

So a few of us got together at a friend’s house for a Super Bowl diddy and I decided to take a pic. With this crowd, the halftime show was by far the most popular segment of Sunday’s experience.

The middle image above is just after J-Lo did something weird, good, bad, or awkward with her crotch’ular’ness area.

I know there were odds for and against a wardrobe malfunction, but in 2020, I’m not sure there’s a line between wardrobe, malfunction, and function.

That all said take look at the faces in the top picture and then the individual reactions and expressions in the second one. It’s funny and interesting to interpret. I still haven’t seen the raunch or art that Lopez provided the earth, but this was a fun venue to not see it.

In other news… Early at our little get-together, there were five sets of twins with my Finley being the only singleton. How ’bout that for an arbitrary twindom???

Back to J-Lo. Click the middle pic to blow it up. It’s pretty funny and telling.

Thank you!

Andy and Stacy Wise built and love this house and have lived in King’s Grant Neighborhood almost 20 years. As their kids have grown, it was time to pass this awesome baton to a new owner.

Family 4 Square Fun!

During “winter break” my girls and I took a good long walk around our neighborhood. We took a basketball with us and passed it around as we strolled along “the loop.” At one point we ended up in a square for a few hundred feet and it popped in my head, “Hey why don’t we make a foursquare court in the cul-de-sac?” They thought it was a great idea.

It was around 5ish, so it didn’t happen.

Fast forward to school starting back and it wasn’t until Saturday 1/11 that it popped in my head, and I said, “Girls, what about our foursquare?”

“OH YEAH, DADDY!!!!! OH YEEEEEAAHHHHHHHH!!!”

I googled the dimensions (16′ x 16′) and the girls went for the tape measure and chalk.

We headed for the street.

Imma tell you what right now Jennifer, Finley, Ivey, Nora, and I have had the best damn time playing foursquare on Saturday. I’d say we played around two hours with much of it being in the rain.

Since it rained Saturday afternoon, our court was washed away which sent us straight to Michael’s after church (& lunch out Groucho’s) to buy “spray can chalk.” We were back in the street for a great afternoon together.

If you can’t make it out from the pics, we played the “Royal” method. King, Queen, Joker, Trash, & the line.

I have to say, we all have our own styles of foursquare play w/in our fam. That said, my three darlings are also competitive little smack talkers to one another. Check out the body language and facial expressions in the 2nd pic above.

I don’t want to oversell it, but if you’d like a good idea/activity that doesn’t cost a ton and can be fun for all athletic levels of your family (notice Liz Black above haha.), 4 Square is a ticket. One of the reasons for this is because even the lowest level player can easily be King or Queen, even if just for a round or two.

I can’t tell you the amount of laughs we had this weekend, on two misty days.

Pro Tip: For the kids, constructing the foursquare court is almost as entertaining and fun as playing the game.  🙂

Pro Tip #2: It is a humbling and a little humiliating when a six-year-old puts you in the trash, a lot!

Thank you!
