I can't tell you how nice it was hearing from you again. To find cj, just go to the top of your page, open up "members" and in the search box put in cj. When it opens click on cj from Ft. Lauderdale, FL. You can write to her from her site.
Yes, you are very correct about the Florida real estate market. The best we could get for our house these days is almost half of what it would have brought in 2 years ago. That's also where we are with our investments. On paper we are down about half too.
Thanks for the Thanksgiving wishes. Of course the same back to you and your husband (I apologize that I have forgotten his name).
We don't expect to be back in NC until middle of next year but hope we can get together with you guys along with our friends
sheila and Peter.
Hi Robin, I just wanted to say hello. It has been a long time since we have spoke or written and I don't want to lose contact with you.
I recently recommended you to a member of this group but I have no way of knowing if she ever contacted you. She goes by the name of "cj". She seemed to have some interest in property in WNC and I suggested that she contact you.
With the terrible shape of he economy (including the financial world) Marilyn and I are at a standstill with our building plans. I did find a builder that gave us a good price to build the house from the ground up but as I said all is on hold at this time. One of the things we are considering is is selling the property we bought and buying an existing house but two things stand in our way; one, we love the house we designed and don't think we would be able to find anything close to it and, two, all this thinking stuff is academic since we still need to sell our current house before we can do anything... especially now since we lost half of our life savings (at least for the short term) in the market.
Enough of my whining, hope you guys are well and are not too affected by what is going on in the world. Let us know what has been going on with you guys. In case you have forgotten, my email address is, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hey Robin, great to have you as a member of this elite group.
Being that you are a realtor you can tell us all about the great properties and homes in Western NC ... especially the log homes. Perhaps you can feature some things on a regular basis. Not all the members are planning to build, some are looking for existing properties.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
