Well, there is no reason for this post other than wanting to have a dated blog entry on the day we closed on our first home together! After tiring weekends, and many drives between Illinois and North Carolina, we finally found a winner (with a lucky bright red door!) The house hunt was an overall exciting process and the weeks leading up to our closing were smooth and painless. You just never know what to expect we feel very fortunate to have had such a positive experience all around.
Our little Illinois rental home will always hold a special place in my heart- It's where we spent our first year plus of married life and I wouldn't have traded that time for anything in the world. Memories were made and our life together began. We knew that our Illinois adventure was not long term so on the flip side of the mushy gushy "I heart Illinois" stuff, it's wonderful to be back in Charlotte where we have roots and where we know we want to be for the long haul.
And...a quick yet GIANT shout out to the best realtor on this side of the universe. Nick Baker did a fantastic job and helped us find the perfect spot to call home. He spend countless hours and literally drove us to one end of Charlotte and back, several times, in order to make sure we were happy. Nick is a dear friend and I cannot sing his praises loud enough. If you are local to the Charlotte area and need an excellent realtor, please call this guy! I promise he will take care of you and you won't be disappointed. Nick is part of the Keller WIlliams Stephen Cooley Team.
If you call him, say "Hello, Saint Nick!". He'll know that I sent you.
