Our Saturday Solution to Saturday’s Snafu

Hi, I’m Blake. As Nina Klemm’s marketing director, I’m taking this opportunity to post and explain a bit of what happened yesterday, and why we didn’t post our #FF on Twitter.

My day started out as it does every day: checking in on our marketing strategies, making appropriate adjustments and following up with potential opportunities. At about 12:45 pm I received a phone call from Nina indicating that she had literally run over her computer – while driving her SUV. To spare you the mind-boggling details, I spent the rest of my day searching for a new computer to replace the one she had crushed. #FF on Twitter, as important as it is, had to take a back seat.

Handing it off to Nina now…

Thanks, Blake. Thanks also for coming to the rescue yesterday. Since yesterday did not unfold according to plan, I would now like to take a few moments to recognize some of my  favorite followers:

@sdiraexpert – Kevin Kaczmarek – Met with him this week at a great Triple S networking event.

Again, thanks for following and for your loyal readership. Hope you understand about Friday’s mega-snafu.

Have a safe, wonderful weekend!

Nina & Blake

The Woodlands Subdivision Profile (Carmel)

This week, I’d like to profile a lovely, timeless Carmel neighborhood called The
Woodlands.  A well established subdivisionlocated in southeastern Carmel, just off 106th St. & Keystone Ave., The Woodlands is a family-friendly community, conveniently located to shops, restaurants, schools, daycare, churches, the post office, and many other vital destinations.

Important Current Numbers to Consider when Evaluating

The Woodlands:

-18 active listings

-8 SOLD in the past 6 months

-Avg. # of Days on Market: 42

-Avg. price/sq.ft.: $110.00

-Max. price/sq.ft.: $240.00

-Avg. sale price/home: $226,750

-Max. sale price of a home was $287,500

People talk about how bleak the real estate market is, but with a 96.03% list to sales
price value within The Woodlands, I believe positive, profitable outcomes are realistic and proven. Houses are not only moving, but their values are being respected and preserved.

This charming expansive neighborhood features bountiful, mature landscaping, as well as the lovely Lake Woodland. Lakeshore Drive, one of the most scenic residential routes in Carmel, winds through the center of the subdivision and even leads to and through the neighboring Woodland Springs subdivision.

The nearby public elementary school, Forest Dale, boasts a fantastic faculty, cheerful
atmosphere, and excellent academic standards for student success. My sons, Jalen and Nikko, are thoroughly enjoying this fine school. I highly recommend Forest Dale’s Extended Stay Enrichment Program, an after-school elective offering, run by Ms. Valeska Simmons, Site Supervisor.

When we’re all on hiatus from school during the summer, The Woodlands provides
outstanding, well-maintained recreational facilities including their impressive swimming pool, tennis courts, and accompanying clubhouse. There is a rich, almost legendary tradition of active swim team participation among kids and families in this neighborhood.

Please give me a call if you’re interested in touring any of the homes currently on the
market in The Woodlands. If you are currently a homeowner in the area wishing to set up a listing consultation, I would also be happy to assist!
