fishing and buying clients at Lakewood!!

Hope everyone had a great memorial day week-end. After having people over for lunch on Sunday, I met a new client and looked at some houses. After talking further with them, they too are wanting lakefront in Lakewood. They plan to move here from Illinois in next 2-3 months.

I also got another client today (online) who also wants lakefront. That makes 3 clients in last 5 days that want to live at lakewood. There has never been a better time to sell your home in lakewood.

My family and I also returned to "our fishing hole" at lakewood late Sunday afternoon. We caught about 30 of the biggest bluegill I have ever seen. We threw them back because it appears that the bream are spawning.

Thanks to all our veterans!!

I just wanted to thank all our veterans for serving our country. I too am a veteran and understand the sacrifices made by the fine men and women that served or are serving our country. I ran into a guy last night at a homeschools promotion ceremony who is here for a few days to visit his wife and kids(who live near Dyersburg,Tennessee). He is in the navy and getting ready to redeploy with a ship. I told him how much we as a nation appreciate the job he and others are doing to give us our freedom.

As we are fishing on the lake or lakes(Lakewood included) or cooking out with a barbecue, lets remember that we enjoy these privilages because of those who bought us this freedom.

Still another lakefront client!!!

Just wanted to update our readers about clients wanting in lakewood. This past week-end I drove my southern Alabama couple around to look at properties. I never was able to find them any houses(on the water at lakewood) to view. I guess all the residents in Lakewood are content to stay put as I would be also. We did however, find them a beaufiful home that they have made an offer for. This client is no longer in the market.

Also, just had a customer call (today) about one of the houses I just sold on the water. He asked me to offer that new owner $20,000 profit with a quick closing. This customer is serious about buying a nice home on the water at Lakewood. If you live in Lakewood and are considering selling, there may never be a better time to sell your property.

The current demand for lakefront properties in Lakewood reminds me of the first 3-4 years Lakewood was in existence. The prices were going up month by month and the lot sales were sizzling. Now, there is hardly any nice lots left to purchase and only 1 or 2 homes listed for sale.

Lakefront listing needed immediately and great fishing at Lakewood!

I have my lakefront clients coming in on the 20th of this month and we need waterfront homes to view for possible purchase. If you live on the water or know someone that lives on the water who is thinking about selling their home, please call me immediately to set up a showing. It is true that I am looking for listings on the water but right now I am looking for lakefront homes to show my clients this weekend. If you would consider a 1 day listing in order for me to show your home this weekend, please call me at the office 285-2277 or on my cell 589-7841.

I also wanted to share with my readers about fishing at Lakewood this past Saturday afternoon. We have some very good friends James and Donna that I sold a home in lakewood to about 2 years ago. They live on Elm Lane on one of the smaller lakes. They just built a brand new fishing pier and have been asking us(my wife, myself and my two daughters) to come over and fish off the new dock. We picked up some worms and got over there about 4:30. I got the girls rigged up for crappie and bream and I then rigged up for bass.

As I fished with the plastic frog for bass, they started catching big bream. All three girls were catching them and I did not have time to fish as I was taking them off the hook. All these fish were coming out of the same 10' diameter area. I finally changed to fishing for bream also and got in on the fun. We had a great time and took home 21 really big bream(threw back several smaller ones).I cannot wait to go back and catch some more.

Lakefront house wanted!!!

Today I had the opportunity to show a new client homes in and around Dyersburg. He originally is from Nashville and his wife from Crossville,Tennessee but they now reside and work in southern Alabama. We looked at several homes in "The Farms" and some out in the country. My client kept telling me he likes lakefront and his wife likes hills and mountains. The bells went off and we drove to Lakewood.

We drove around and looked at all the lakes and talked about what has sold recently.
After driving around several minutes in Lakewood, my client asked me to find he and his wife a lakefront home either at "The Farms" or in Lakewood. Currently, there is very little inventory of listed properties in either area. The Oak Ridge home that just sold would have been perfect for them. They are looking for living area of between 2500-3000' and they also want a basement. The other requirement is for a large kitchen and she would like double ovens.

My clients will return here in 30 days or less to look at additional homes I have found.If you live in Lakewood or at "The Farms" and your property is lakefront and you have been thinking of selling your home, this may well be your opportunity.
