Congratulations On Your New Arrival!

Gotcha! Nope, not me having a baby...but our team does have some exciting announcements to make regarding some very special additions!

First, Brooke Cashion and Associates welcomes TWO new members to the team! Jennifer Sammons has just joined me as a new agent on the team, specializing in buyer's agency, new construction and the Surry and Stokes county areas. Funny how things work, but Jennifer was a former client of mine who lived in Kernersville and I sold them a beautiful home on 7 acres that backs up to Pilot mountain. Needless to say, I was thrilled when she told me she was looking to change careers and get into real estate. Jennifer previously worked several years with a national new home builder as an interior designer and most recently she worked with a local plumbing fixture company. Needless to say, she knows homes and has been around remodeling and new construction for well over the past ten years! Not to mention, she is super active in the Winston-Salem Home Builders Association and sits on their board of directors. I cannot even begin to describe what a pleasure it is to have Jennifer and her positive attitude, witty sense of humor, excitement and her fashion-sense in our office! She is available full-time to serve all of your real estate needs and can be reached at 226-399-5218.

Our next addition is Dawna Compton, our new right-hand gal, who filled in when our beloved Beth left to spend more time with her boys. Though we miss Beth dearly, Dawna fell right into the groove. Dawna will be specializing in systems, organization and marketing implementation so that our day to day processes go smoothly in order to allow Jennifer and I to be out in the field and physically with our clients more often. Dawna also brings a ton of resources with her, especially her knowledge and enthusiasm for technology, her "can-do" attitude and her strong work ethic--each of which are seasoned with a dose of quirky humor! If you are a current client and need anything regarding fliers, books, website management, etc. Dawna is your gal--but of course, you can still call me anytime!

We do have another arrival to announce and that is Allen Tate Winston-Salem's arrival to our new location in downtown Winston! We have FINALLY settled into our new building located at 147 S. Cherry St. and it is beautiful! Please find the time to drop in and say hello or wave as you pass by on Business 40!

With these additions, I look forward to all of the good that is certainly to come from it and I am excited about implementing new resources to better serve you and your referrals!

Keep 'em coming!

That's What I Call a Great Deal!

What a wonderful and relaxing weekend, after the madness of tax credit deadlines, soccer tournaments and end of school activities, it seems as if life has gotten back to normal...well at least until tomorrow!

Several interesting bits of information to be relayed to you that have recently occurred...great home on Fielding Drive in the Post Oak subdivision is back on the market after only have recently exchanged hands in the past month or so. One of my close friends asked me to confirm if the first sell actually went through and it did, but for any of you looking for a great one level brick ranch in an established and super convenient Kernersville location, contact me for the specs...listed at just $205k--not much more than what it sold for only a few weeks ago!

Several of my listings have recently been reduced...placing them in a category that I call "What a Great Deal!" That means if I had millions of dollars, I would grab these homes up and hold on to them for a few years and well, you know the rest of the story. One of these is my mother-in-law's home in Salisbury Crossing at 605 Charles Conner. She just authorized another reduction of 5k, making this a steal at 195k!! Check it out www.allentate.com/brookecashion/564429

Another one of these "deals" is a new listing located in Tredegar at 1719 Tredegar Road. Things have been pretty slow for this subdivision for some reason, but this home is priced to sell at just 250k...4 bedrooms, all-brick and a huge, level fenced backyard. www.allentate.com/brookecashion/581968

Also, if you know of anyone looking for something below 150k that is move-in ready check these HOT PROPERTIES out!! Perfect for an investor wanting to hold and flip, great for rental property or for someone just needing some great space for the money! Check out the lot sizes, condition and location for the price.
908 Huntington Run in Kernersville www.allentate.com/brookecashion/573015
1140 Ziglar Road in Northern Winston-Salem www.allentate.com/brookecashion/572220

Anything else that you hear of or have questions on please don't hesitate to call me, text, email, Tweet, FB or post to the blog...we'll pick it up and get back to you!

Stay tuned for days on market updates, inventory and new listings!
