If you know us, you know that we rely on others’ expertise to do things right. Sometimes, those experts come to us first. Almost like divine intervention. This happened on two occasions recently, and we must say Thank You!
When our dear friend and realtor learned about Magnolia Properties, she began actively searching for those beautiful homes that needed some TLC. Every time she found a potential property, she’d call and ask if we’d like to jump in the car to see it. Ultimately we landed on the Colclough House.
Not only did she negotiate the contract on our behalf, she navigated several unusual issues with city zoning, an oil tank, and a driveway easement. Check out her web site. Thank you Cristine!
Our second Thank You goes out to Brooks Adams with Minerva Design and Renovation. During one of our numerous visits to the Colclough House before closing, we ran into Brooks who was restoring the home that borders our backyard. We immediately bonded with Brooks. He gave us a tour of his project and explained his background in home restoration. He started out like us…renovating one house at a time.
What we love most about Brooks (other than his dog) is his eagerness to help and share his expertise. We learned so much about the Historic Rehabilitation Standards and the obstacles we’ll overcome in restoring an old house. Check out Brooks’ story on the Minerva web site. Thank you Brooks!
