The Turkeys are coming---The Turkeys are coming!

No, these wild turkeys are not destined for a Thanksgiving dinner.  They are permanent residents of Brookstone Vistas, a gorgeous development in Patton Valley and a designated wildlife sanctuary area.  Behind the Gobblers is the entrance to the neighborhood; Notice the picturesque old barn in the background. This could be a Franklin postcard!  Yes, we are blessed with so much beauty and peace.....I pinch myself often to make sure it's real. 

So much to be thankful for, may I never take my surroundings for granted. Happy Thanksgiving to each and every one of you.  Your continued friendship and support is so greatly appreciated. 

Happy Thanksgiving from Kathy Clifton

Franklin and Otto Market Update

Summer and Fall home sales in our area continue to climb as 254 homes were sold by Realtors from June 1, 2013 through today.  2012 home sales for the same time frame were 198, equating to a 28.3% increase in the number of homes sold in 2013.   With interest rates still low and hovering around 4.25% for a 30-year fixed rate mortage, our prediction is that 2014 will be a banner year.   Home prices are leveling out and we are seeing multiple offers on some of the better priced homes----this has not happened in years!
