Killing Birds- with an OPEN HOUSE!

In my market (Killeen / Fort Hood – Texas) open houses don’t work very well- but that doesn’t stop 100 Realtors a week from having them. Our open houses are generally for Realtors- around lunch time- and isn’t it weird that the same 8 people always show up?? LOL! I was at an open house last week for a friend (because she called and personally invited me) I felt so bad for her… she is a Coldwell Banker United agent- officing with a TON of other agents- and NOT ONE of them- including the manager bothered to show up! Her attendees were ME and one other agent from another brokerage. Shame on her office! I love you Kelly G. and I will always come to your open houses girl! (Especially if you keep serving that key lime pie!)

I know that sellers expect an open house- I KNOW I KNOW. This is the result of too much “real estate TV” – if you ask me. “Have an OPEN HOUSE and sell your house in 2 minutes!!!” Those shows have just made our jobs harder- but on a lighter note- they also have given us something to laugh at! (I know I do!)

Every once in a while- I like to do an open house and kill 2 birds with 1 stone. 1st Bird: Make the seller of a great house happy! 2nd Bird: Catch up with my Realtor friends over some wine and good munchies! SOMETIMES…there’s even a THIRD BIRD! 3rd Bird: We sell the house!

Monday we are hosting an open house “Happy Hour Style!” at one of our new construction homes by TBR Builders in Killeen Texas. TBR builds a great custom-style home with unique features that you likely won’t see elsewhere in our area. Lots of great stone work -inside and out, amazing kitchens, spa-like master bathrooms… everything it takes to build a great home that any Realtor would be proud to show off!!

If you can join us in person…please do at 4411 Canine in Killeen Texas (Onion Creek Estates) between 4PM & 6:30PM on Monday, May 3rd. If you can’t join us in person- just join us in spirit- check out the flyer below while sipping on a good glass of wine and a couple of pretzel sticks! (I will post a new flyer before Monday with updated pics now that the house is finished!!)

If you or someone you know are in need of real estate assistance in the Killeenm Harker Heights, Fort Hood, Copperas Cove, Nolanville, Central Texas areas… please call me at (254) 291-6826 or visit me on the web at
