Welcoming 2010

2009 Was So YesterdayDon’t worry, we still exist! 🙂

December was a refresh and recharge (and work) month for us, so we decided to leave the blog alone for a bit, as we figured most of you had other things to be doing too.

We were doing real estate during the month though, of varying degrees of importance.

I received several calls from people that are thinking about selling their homes this spring, so I’ve started meeting with them to determine what, if anything, they need to do to make their homes sale ready.

Kyle and I showed lots of properties, helping one buyer find a new home and getting others ready to make the big decision once the right home shows up for them in the spring.

We spent a lot of time in the kitchen preparing for various parties and family celebrations. It made me realize just how dysfunctional the current space is; the sink is in the wrong place, there is too much unusable countertop space, the stove doesn’t fit baking sheets in a portrait position. So, it gave us some more things to consider regarding the layout of our future remodeled kitchen.

I found an organization that will be taking away our current kitchen. More on them in a late January post.

We found a new blog about living and working in Downtown Hartford.

I got Kyle a super book that’s an Encyclopedia of Domestic Architectural Detail. Further strengthening our position as house dorks.

We reviewed our business accomplishments for 2009, set our goals for 2010, and spent a substantial amount of time working on a new quarterly publication that will be focused on analyzing real estate market data for Hartford County. More on that mid-January.

Wishing you and yours a happy, healthy and prosperous 2010!
