Questions with May

 

IMG_2318

 

How did you get into Real Estate?……………….Interiors and Architecture have always interested me, the transition from college to building my first home in Purchase Estates was very organic and fun. I loved building from scratch and flipping homes that needed some TLC. I even lured April into becoming a realtor and then years later joined Houlihan Lawrence. Understanding the building process has allowed me to better educate my clients and their expectations about renovations, budgets, timing and building permits.

Did you know May is Left Handed……

What is your favorite thing about living in Harrison? ……………….My neighborhood in Sunnyridge and the people who live there. I have lived there for 14 years.

Do you prefer working with buyers or sellers?.…………..Buyers, it’s a big challenge which excites me…..

Whats the biggest misconception about realtors?………………..That we spend our days looking at beautiful houses and nothing else….

So what does Spring Cleaning entail?

  1. Set up your annual spring lawn maintenance, check sprinklers, cut back overgrown vegetation
  2. Power wash your siding or exterior, makes a huge difference. An if your husband likes to rent things that make him feel powerful this is an easy task! May does this every year and wow does her house sparkle
  3. Good time to service your AC and change the filters
  4. Check the Exterior caulking: especially around Window sills, door sills, and thresholds. I already found some leaking near  a window so that is top of my list this year!
