patricia feager: Distinctly Flower Mound - Armadillo - 10/14/17 06:06 PM
by Patricia Feager, 10/14/2017
 
Something distinctly different in Flower Mound that many people don't get in other cities are armadillos. Unfortunately, most people don't see them, until it's road kill. Although, I have seen them crawling around early, early morning and late at night, I never saw one during day time. They are very unusual creatures and harmless too. They look prehistoric and odd.
 
 
 
My daughter has a great sense of humor. She decided to bake an Armadillo Cake and she sent me the photograph. Long distance is always a problem but we make light of it and do our best to entertain each other, … (17 comments)

patricia feager: Distinctly Flower Mound - Farmer's Market - 10/14/17 10:10 AM
by Patricia Feager, 10/2017
 
Growing together as a community to promote good health is one of the many distinct reasons why Buyer's choose Flower Mound, Texas. What sets the Flower Mound Farmer's Market located in Parker's Square apart from other Farmer's Markets in North Dallas is that it's not just about the people choosing plants, vegetables, and fruit. This morning I got to see this beautiful dog sniffing out the barbecue sauces. As soon as he was done, he mozzied on over to another friendly dog for communication.
 
 
Flower Mound is known for being a family community where students are included in gathering places. Here … (9 comments)

by Patricia Feager, 10/13/2017
 
Flower Mound, TX has many pre-schools. One of my favorites is Primrose School of Northeast Flower Mound, providing quality educational childcare for infants through Kindergarten, after school, and summer camp. The kids are getting reading for Trunk or Treat on October 27th. 
 
 
 
Whenever I drive by the Primrose Pre-School in Flower Mound, I'm reminded of those little darlings who are just starting to learn. Teachers have to get very creative to keep their attention, stay focused, and make education fun. Kids say and do the silliest things. Discovering who is going to lead and who will follow is always … (8 comments)

patricia feager: Distinctly Flower Mound - New Construction - 10/11/17 06:33 AM
by Patricia Feager, 2017
 
 
NEW CONSTRUCTION
As the trend of low inventory and choice selections of older homes continues in Flower Mound, buyers may want to consider new construction. Buying new is a completely different process than buying pre-existing homes. There are advantages and disadvantages. Some things to consider include:
 
TIME FOR COMPLETION
It takes time to build. Builders need lots, permits, planning and zoning, contractors, e.g., engineers, electricians, roofers, glass and window, plumber, and foundation people, just to name a few. They also need materials, and Buyers. The erection of a building takes time and money. Weather and unexpected delays is a factor.

DRAGONFLY
I captured the beauty of a blue dragonfly in Dallas on Sunday afternoon, 10/8/2017. His head looks like a marble, don't you think? They say a dragonfly has the eyes of a predator with 30,000 lenses. A dragonfly can see in every direction simultaneously. They are focused on watching prey as it flies in their scope of vision. Even more incredible, it eats food equal to its own body weight in about a half hour. It's prey rarely, if ever escapes. Once trapped, it is eaten.

Peace begins with a smile --- Mother Teresa
 
Fall flowers are a favorite of mine. When I get up in the moring and see the sun shining it makes me smile. If you look deeply into the center of a flower you can almost feel a spiritual connection, I know I do. Have you ever pulled the petals off a flower and said, "He loves me, he loves me not?" Why do people do that? To rip apart the petals off a flower breaks harmony with nature. 
 
There's something about the way the petals move that moves me. It's impossible … (15 comments)

A HAPPY HALLOWEEN BEGINS AT THE
FLOWER MOUND PUMPKIN PATCH
 
 
I had fun at the Pumpkin Patch taking photos and meandering through the field of dreamy pumpkins. Families can hop on board the wagon for a nice hayride through the patch too! For kids with lots of energy, they can bounce around in the bounce houses too. 
 
Now is a great time to think about holiday treats. Whether you make apple pie, pumpkin pie, or something sweet like Baked Alaska, have fun in the kitchen and involve family members to share in the celebrations. It's a great time to check your … (14 comments)

We have an inner window through which we can see
the world, and though it gets cloudy in life, it's our job
to wipe it clean and see things as they really are.
--- Sabastian Koch
 
My initial reaction to Glacier National Park was, oh shucks, why does there have to be wildfires here while I'm visiting and why doesn't the sun come out?  I no sooner started coughing when a man arrived out of nowhere and said, isn't it beautiful? 
 
"Beautiful?" I'm surprised my voice didn't scare him away. I've got smoke in my throat and is it going to be cloudy all day?
 
He took a deep breath … (18 comments)

2018 Business Plan
Call me early but I won't be late. Taking a fall vacation is something I fall back on to reminisce the things I have accomplished, and set expectations for making plans for my future. For the third year in a row, I went to Glacier National Park. Wildfires couldn't keep me away. It was cloudy and smoky. The Sun Road was closed. I followed many detours driving and climbing on unfamiliar roads up to the Canadian Border. My first stop was Apgar. The azure-blue color was serene and quiet but smoke was in the air.

My personal and business time is always under construction. In sum, here are some key points I incorporate into my life's activities.
 
BELIEF IN THE ABILITY TO SUCCEED
My quest to succeed starts with being the leader; not the follower of what someone else believes is best for me. I am mindful that the number of hours on every one's clock is not equal. Every day, I have a slice of humble pie. To be clear, I am not a leader in … (23 comments)

"The significant challenges we face cannot be
resolved at the same level of thinking we were
at when we created them."  --- Albert Einstein
 
Digital communication has changed the way we do business and Artificial Intelligence is the future; however, some things never change.
 
Communication Skills
To provide timely information and high quality services, one must know what they are talking about and not merely a script reader. Actively listen to understand, ask intelligent questions, speak clearly, express yourself well, enunciate your words, speak in a pleasant tone, and provide timely answers that are accurate and true.

by Patricia Feager, 9/6/17
 
I don't know if these bees and the moth and/or butterfly flew in as a result of Hurricane Harvey, but I've never seen anything like it before, have you? They showed up in my Flower Mound, TX garden this afternoon uninvited! There was enough Lantana growing to keep them satisfied so I wasn't at all worried about getting stung. They appeared very, very hungry, too! 
 


The 2017 butterfly festival isn't scheduled until the first weekend in November when the butterfly migration peaks. This little guy flew in the same time the orange and black winged bees arrived and was … (19 comments)

Once upon a time, I was a First Time Home Buyer, but unfortunately, I didn't get far and I wasn't successful. It was the decade of the 70's. What did I know? I wasn't even 21 years old when I started working with a Real Estate Agent. Was it even legal? At the time, I didn't even think to ask, nor did the agent. My savings account was in a Christmas Club Savings Account from my local bank which wasn't very much. If there was such a thing as a credit score, I never knew, but I did … (34 comments)

by Patricia Feager, 9/3/2017
 
Thinking about selling your home in Denton, Dallas, Tarrant, or Collin Counties in Texas? While many agents offer "full services," my goal is to provide Premium Services customized for the benefit of the seller's motivation, needs, and wants. My value proposition includes the following:
 
EDUCATION
Reviewing listing and contract forms before going live in MLS sets the stage for what comes next. Setting up expectations, staying committed, knowing with confidence what needs to be signed and why prepares the sellers to sell and produce positive results.
 
FINANCING
Pricing strategies, including a comprehensive Comparative Marketing Analysis, and an estimated Seller's Net puts the seller … (12 comments)

by Patricia Feager, 9/1/2017
 
The days between 8/21 through 8/25 (Solar Eclipse, Hurricane Harvey), and the days that followed have been quite extraordinary and anything but ordinary. In addition to the National news I have spent quite a bit of time at doctor appointments and taking care of business. Like current events and business, there's always something to learn. Ordinary and extraordinary circumstances makes all the difference.
 
Doctor #1 - An ordinary doctor, operates in routine fashion. #1 is the Doctor; I am the impatient patient. Nothing personal, doctor is simply ordinary.
 
Doctor #2 - Extraordinary; anything but ordinary. Here are examples of what … (7 comments)

Dragonflies are fascinating creatures. They may start their day out slowly basking in the sun but once they get going, they can put on quite a show. Without a cup of coffee, could it be these aquatic flying insects are getting energized by the sun before spending the rest of their day flying in mid air, hovering over the surface of a body of water, zipping from one place to another to collect food? I snapped this photograph in Dallas, Texas near White Rock Lake on Thursday, August 31, 2017.

DESPITE ALL THE DARKNESS

What I like best about this flower is it's color, texture and movement. Color is a means of expression. The texture feels welcoming, taking on the appearance of a beautiful sunset, associated with ocean beachfront. The color yellow reminds me of the sun and how it changes color during the setting of the sun, a reminder that rest is important and necessary. Like little children, we don't want to be told to go to sleep. Let there be light!!!
 
Color affects us. Creating colors aesthetically … (20 comments)

SELLING
This is the story of the man whose wife ran away with another man and left her belongings behind. The man kept hoping, she'd come back, but she never did. He lived in a home, all alone surrounded by STUFF. Out of all the homes on the market, this is the one my buyers wanted to buy. When asked if the Seller would be able to get out and close on time, the Agent said, "Yes," he has a moving crew who will have everything out before we close.

The day before closing, nothing was moved; again, listing agent … (47 comments)
