Foot Point @ King’s Grant Neighborhood Hits Market!

Welcome to amazing!

31 Foot Point just hit the market in one of Columbia’s most popular neighborhoods – King’s Grant!

“Foot Point” has almost 4,500 square feet and is replete with everything. Of everything that 31 Foot Point offers, I’d say my favorite things are the kitchen, the “keeping room” on the opposite side of the stellar island, and those dang heart of pine floors!

Come visit all that “KG” has to offer including nature trails and stocked fishing ponds.

King’s Grant is minutes to everything Downtown and Forest Acres and is zoned for the popular Brennen, Crayton, Flora schools.

If you or anyone you know would like to know more about 31 Foot Point or what’s going on in King’s Grant Neighborhood, please call/text Franklin @ 803-447-8683 or email Franklin@TheNeighborhoodRE.com.

The Therapy Place gets a good spring cleaning

Families this week were impressed to see the facelift at The Therapy Place due to a full day of volunteering by Keller Williams Palmetto.  Over 30 realtors converged on the space for the company-wide’s annual RED DAY (Renew, Energize, & Donate).  The entire company across the U.S. and Canada participate with one project taking place at The Therapy Place, a local pediatric therapy center.  Realtor volunteers painted therapy rooms, hallways and the preschool that hadn’t been touched in the 10 years since opening the clinic.  Realtors also planted an herb garden and cleaned up the outside play equipment.  One hundred and twenty children attend therapies and the organizations therapeutic preschool each week.

“We experience a lot of wear and tear with so many using the space each week.  It’s amazing what a fresh coat of paint can do to a place.  We have gotten so many positive comments from our families, although not so much interest from the kids,” said Dawn Darby, Executive Director of The Therapy Place.  “We’re beyond grateful to be chosen and for the many hours donated as we could not have done this on our own.”

The Therapy Place is celebrating its 10-year anniversary this year with lots of improvements inside and out.   An open house in late summer will commemorate the milestone and open up the new and improved space to the community to say thank you and offer tours.

Changing Lives Through Real Estate.

Every 3rd Tuesday of the month our office has its monthly Agent Leadership Council meeting. After our meeting today one of our awesome REALTORS, Gena Banks, took me to the side and began to tell a story.

She proceeded to tell me that while her family was together they started talking and sharing stories.

She went on, saying, “I just wanted you to know that in one of our office ZOOMs, you said that you learned from another agent at a Keller Williams Mastermind to, ‘Be Where Your Feet Are,’ and how much sense that made to me. I shared that with my family in that moment and look at this picture and check out what he made from that.”

She held her phone up to my face with the photo above.

My head leaned forward and my eyebrows raised. I stood tall and gave her a few giant side squeezes and told her how awesome this was multiple times. Honestly, what I really wanted to do was fall on the damn floor.

For context, this is a successful REALTOR that moved her license to KW Palmetto, married to a successful husband, that just purchased an awesome lakehouse with a big water view that is showing me that I made some sliver of an impact on her day.

While most of you know I’m not a big reader, I know there’s a book called, “Be Where Your Feet Are.” That said, this credit goes to my friend and mentor, Jen Davis, from Springfield, Missouri. She’s the one that introduced me to the concept and, looking back, resonated perfectly with so many people and our personal/professional journey as we tried, many times not hard enough, to have a work/life balance.

Think of it. If our feet are with our families on a gorgeous sunny beach or at Disney World and our minds and hearts are in our iPhones, we kinda suck where our feet are. We’re failing badly with the people our bodies are beside. We’re fakes. We are missing it, and they are missing us. We are posers.

I understand that bills need to be paid and goals want to be met and I know the mantra, “Listen, babe, these sales are why we can be on this vacation in the first place!” I’ve been there and told my wife these things many times while in the same breath I’m on the phone with termite and HVAC inspectors in the hotel room, while my kids were running on the beach waiting on daddy to take them in the ocean. That said, if you’re doing this, you’re failing your family, the friends and families you are with, and you are failing you.

Thank you, Gena Banks, for sharing this story with me today! Thank you, too, Jen Davis, for having such a servant’s heart and sharing with our group so I could share to mine!

Thank You, Columbia, SC! The Neighborhood Co. – KW Palmetto.

I could go into many paragraphs of storytelling here but I’m just going to get on to how thankful my teammates and I are to our buyer and seller clients, raving fans, referral partners, appraisers, lender partners, closing attorneys, inspectors, and contractors for the opportunity to be included in the image above.

To pull back the curtain a little, it took roughly $10 million in real estate sales to be included in the Top 10 of the April 2021 list of the Keller Williams Carolina’s Region. That’s pretty much bringin’ the noise for one month of sales volume…

For some perspective, some of the awesome groups above have a few dozen team members. That said, it’s quite amazing what our company, KW, provides to let us serve our clients at the highest level and achieve endless opportunities!

BIG SHOUT OUT to Elizabeth Ross, Liz Black Fischer, Elizabeth Laffitte, Sarah Penn, Sara Green, Meghan Hesley, and Meredith Honeycutt, and perhaps more than all of us in sales, Amy Ackerman Cartin, for turning in a stellar month and providing Top-Shelf service to our amazing buyers and sellers.

Thank you so much and let’s do it again often!!
