Professionally Speaking

FRIDAY, JUNE 10, 2011


Dear Community,

When you need to know... talk to Mickey DeBernard

Finding the right agent for you

or contract negotiation? Rest assured, there’s an agent for you. A difference that matters It’s important for you to know that not every real estate broker or salesperson in North Carolina can call him or herself a REALTOR®. Only those agents who are members in the National Association of REALTORS®, and the Pinehurst-Southern Pines Area Association of REALTORS® may use the term “REALTOR®” on business cards and in marketing material. Choosing to work with a REALTOR® means you are relying on someone who is committed to continuing education, professionalism and integrity. In addition, Realtors are sworn to uphold a strict code of ethics and to treat all parties fairly. It’s a difference that matters. Specializations and professionalism Many REALTORS® hold one or more certifications or designations, each one indicated by an acronym behind the agent’s name. These letters signify that the holder has not only undergone advanced or specialized training in real estate, but is also committed to his own professional development. Some of us specialize in residential listings, buyer representation or investment property. Others concentrate on international or commercial real estate. Find your match There are all kinds of real estate agents out there, and there’s one for you, no matter what your situation or what level of service you seek. There are lots of ways to find agents these days – the Internet, print advertising and good old fashioned referrals, to name a few. Regardless of how you find your agent, though, if you’re looking for a higher level of professionalism, I strongly recommend that you make sure whoever you hire is a REALTOR®. To learn more about real estate and to find a REALTOR®, please visit:

Real estate transactions can be stressful and are full of nuances, subtleties and loads of paperwork. Aside from that, every transaction is different because every single one involves the ultimate variable – people. This may come as a surprise to you, but real estate agents are people, too. All I mean is that every agent is unique. Each has had different experiences and possesses various specializations and interests. Looking for an agent can be tricky and confusing, too. Do not let that stop you. Your needs are important and you should take time to assess your situation and find the right representation for you. Who are you? Are you a first-time homebuyer who needs a little extra attention? Many agents enjoy thorough involvement in the transaction and enthusiastically educate their clients about each step of the home buying process. Has it been a while since you bought or sold real estate? If you have some experience but are unsettled about real estate in today’s world, I can hardly blame you. There is so much information out there that it is easy to get overloaded. There’s an agent for you. Are you technologically adept and expecting to heavily rely on the Internet, Web-based tools and instant communications? You likely want someone who is equally adept and willing to communicate with you quickly, correct? When you’re interviewing your agent, make sure he or she knows these considerations are of high importance to you. Do you live out of town and need a local representative to completely handle the transaction? Some agents work mostly with people who relocate from out of town. Maybe you’re looking for the perfect commercial space to build your family business. You can hire someone who deals exclusively with commercial real estate. There are even sub-specialties within commercial real estate. Perhaps a vacation home is in your plans. Guess what? There are agents who make this their niche. What if you prefer to handle most of the legwork yourself, but need an agent to help with the marketing

Crown Moulding - Adding A Touch Of Glamour To Your Home Décor

Crown moulding is a great way to beautify an ordinary looking home into one that exudes class and style. Crown mouldings are typically decorative

strips made up of wood, plastic, or fiberboard.The crown moulding is similar to a wall decoration which adds a touch of elegance to a room, making it ap-

pear more grand and unique. Crown moulding ideas can be retraced to the Roman and Grecian culture where it became vastly popular. Wooden crown moulding gained popularity later when craftsmen mastered the art of cutting, sanding, and carving wooden blocks to create masterpieces. Crown moulding is affordable and can be implemented in almost any type of room. You can buy the raw materials yourself and get it made professionally by customizing it.

What materials you choose for crown moulding will largely determine how durable and beautiful it is going to be. Superior quality materials for home furnishing are likely to be far more expensive but are less likely to be damaged. Home furnishing experts choose crown molding these days because it helps heighten a property's real estate standing. When a property appears visually stun-

ning, chances are buyers will be willing to pay more for it. Simply demolishing walls to give your rooms a spacious look is not enough; instead, this is more expensive and impractical. An easier and economical alternative is using decorative columns and ceiling medallions for your home décor. These home décor ideas are easy to implement and will not cost you dearly. Crown moulding

can come in various designs like the traditionally classic designs which help add elegance and class to your home décor. Crown moulding in the kitchen is similar to ceiling and wall decorations, but the installation process is different. Although challenging, using crown moulding is a sure way of giving your rooms that much-needed makeover. It helps give every room a distinct flavor, an aesthetic appeal, a unique personality, and a sophisticated touch.

ways been a name that has been trusted for professionalism and quality service. Education and training has been an important ingredient and given them the structure to weather the storms of the economy for the last few years. "Real estate is an investment. It is the only investment that shelters its investor.

Rollie Sampson and daughters Libby & Hallie

Stocks, bonds, gold and silver are also investments. However, they won't provide the environment of a home. Homeownership is still the American Dream" added Ms. Pinnock. Real Estate is at its most affordable according to

the National Affordability Index. These statistics have been accumulated since the 1970's. This index shows that now is truly a great time to buy real estate. "Now is the time to buy a home for yourself or someone else. In-

vesting in rental property is truly buying a home for someone else." "Thank you to all who have been a part of our real estate success for the last 17 years! We are looking forward to at least 17 more years!"

ing and improve growth and moisture control by mixing in a layer of rich compost from Miracle-Gro Moisture Control Garden Soil. This increases the water holding ability and water absorption of your soil. For container gardening, use Miracle-Gro Moisture Control Potting Mix to help hold water longer. Also, using a large pot helps keep plants from becoming root-bound quickly and thirsting for water. The more room plants have to grow, the less watering needed. * Mulch is a must - A two or three inch layer of mulch on the garden will break down over time and add to the nutritional makeup of soil. Layering a hardwood mulch in flowerbeds or container gardens will accomplish three goals: helping to prevent weeds from getting established; giving beds and containers a finished look and holding moisture in the soil. Additionally, the Water Smart technology used in this product has a water

channeling property. This prevents over-watering in flower and produce beds by channeling water directly to the roots, reducing the amount of water needed by up to 30 percent compared to ordinary mulches. * Water wisely - Gardens and containers do require watering to thrive when rainfall is insufficient or infrequent, but a few watering tips can conserve time, water and help make the most of the rainfall that Mother Nature does provide. To maximize the effectiveness of watering, take care to water deeply by wetting soil thoroughly. Use a moisture meter to ensure that roots have received enough moisture. Make watering a regular routine, aiming at the base of the plant. To water effectively, do it: * After planting * Before leaves wilt * In the morning * Feed and protect With help from Miracle-Gro, your plants can grow bigger and more beautiful, without weeds to compete for space, nutrients

and water. Combine feeding with weed prevention by using Miracle-Gro Shake 'n Feed All Purpose Plant Food Plus Weed Preventer. One application feeds plants and prevents weeds from appearing for up to three months. It's an easy way to keep those pesky weeds from popping up. * Spot treatment Don't get carried away with weeds - it is not easy to catch every weed before it pops up. For only a handful of weeds, simply use a spot treatment or dig the culprit out. Roundup Weed & Grass Killer Sure Shot Foam is ideal for tough-to-reach weeds found in flower beds

and vegetable gardens. It's also great to use as an edger along driveways, walkways or fences or to spot treat weeds in patios, gravel or mulch, around trees and shrubs and other hard-to-reach areas. Few gardeners enjoy pulling weeds or constant watering, so taking the measures to prevent weeds and make the most of watering early in the summer growing season is a great way to avoid backbreaking work later on. Soon your dreams will become reality as you enjoy fresh cut flowers on your kitchen table and corn on the cob dripping with butter on your dinner plate.

(ARA) - Part of the joy in planting beautiful flower beds and produce gardens each summer is in daydreaming about the outcome. Summer garden daydreams involve the anticipation of the blooming daisies, the splash of color added by waves of petunias, biting into juicy tomatoes and cooking up crisp green peppers or yellow squash. Gardening dreams and plans, however, don't generally include hours of watering, wilted plants or those pesky weeds. These

unwanted guests aren't just unattractive, but can also rob flowers and vegetables of water, nutrients and sunlight, therefore restricting the growth of prized plants. Watering and controlling weeds in your containers and gardens need not be time-consuming or difficult. Practicing smart weed control and wise watering measures should be a simple part of garden care and can be easily incorporated into routines. * Soil to build on Amend before plant-
