ERA Wilder Realty agent, David Batten from the Lexington office, received a letter of praise from one of his clients recently. "We are so grateful for the excellent service from ERA Wilder Realty in our search for a house leading to a contract for our new home in Columbia.  We wanted to express our deep gratitude to you and our appreciation for David Batten. He is the most outstanding real estate agent we have ever worked with in purchasing a home. He was always available, always ready, and always willing to go the extra mile to help us.  As you are aware, buying and selling a home is stressful and sometimes confusing. David was always ready with the answers and support we needed. David kept us informed of available homes every week since we first made contact. He searched for homes that seemed appropriate for us and was always willing to help us with homes we found from other sources. David was clearly our advocate as we dealt with the builder's agent and every other contact needed. We felt very secure because of his expertise and attitude.  He gave us sound advice on making the offer and in guiding us through the contract process.  In every imaginable way, David modeled the kind of excellence I am sure ERA Wilder Realty desires from all agents. He deserves to be commended for his truly outstanding work in support of our home purchase.  Again, thank you for assigning such an excellent agent to help with our transition."   Thanks for your outstanding customer service David!

Yummy Recipe for your Spring Brunch!


Fresh Fruit & Mint Salad Source:

Ingredients z

1 papaya or mango


1 cup strawberries


2 kiwis


1 banana


2 navel oranges


3 tablespoons honey


1 tablespoon Grand Marnier, optional


3 to 5 sprigs fresh mint


1 cup raspberries or blueberries

Directions Peel and dice the mango or papaya, and put in a medium bowl. Trim the strawberries' stems and half or quarter, if large. Add to the bowl of fruit. Peel and dice the kiwi, add to bowl. Peel and slice the bananas, add to bowl. Cut the top and bottom off the oranges just deep enough to expose the inner fruit. Following the curve of the fruit cut the skin and pith off the orange in panels. Holding the orange over the bowl cut between the membranes to free the citrus segments. Let them fall into the bowl as they are cut free. By hand, squeeze all the juice from the remaining membrane over the fruit, then discard. Repeat with the other orange. Lightly stir the honey and Grand Marnier, if using, into the fruit. Strip the mint leaves off the stem, tear, or chop into smaller pieces, and stir into the fruit salad. Add the berries 4/7/2010
