Summer time and the living is....

July in Bar Harbor what a crazy place but I love it.  The weather has been fabulous and so has the real estate market!!  Finally I feel like things are really taking off!  I couldn't be happier in my personal and professional life.....what a difference a couple of years makes.  Here are a few things I've been up to....

Fishing on Memorial Day Weekend
As June rolls around things are expectedly crazy in Bar Harbor and in my life!  Real estate has been a crazy roller coaster these past few months and I am happy to say I have 5 things pending to sell.  My own personal duplex in Trenton will be selling later this month which I am thrilled about - my first little investment property purchased in 2007 is on to another smart buyer.  I am also the new owner of a great in-town condo (that I've lived in the past 2 years), and I'm considering rolling some of my proceeds from the duplex into another condo purchase.  Even though most things in life do not go as planned I am happy that my real estate investing is going as planned.  Turning 30 this year has created a new outlook on life - one where I am focusing on quality not quantity.  I'm working harder in real estate than ever and that seems to be paying off.  My bar tending gig at my best friend's restaurant are tapered back a bit, but I am excited to be working/playing/entertaining there behind the bar one night a week.  Another thing I am grateful for are my nieces who live here in Bar Harbor, Olivia & Willa.  They fascinate me every time I spend time with them, which luckily is a priority for me and quite convenient since they live in the same town as me.  I always thought I would have to move away to find happiness and success - I am glad I was wrong there - I can't imagine not living/working/playing on Mount Desert Island far away from my friends and family.  My sister is expecting another babe in the Fall and I'm crazy excited for that too!  So much can happen in a few years it is hard to believe.

Last week in my 20s!!!

I vividly remember turning 10 - I was amazed to say I had lived a "decade"; it was a cold, brisk, sunny February (duh). Several friends and I went sledding at Indian Trail was amazing for so many reasons, but mainly because it was my birthday. I've always loved this day of mine. I don't understand when people don't want to celebrate or recognize their day of birth!? You came into the world that day!? I vividly remember turning 20 as well. I was at Bond University on the Gold Coast of Australia. It was hot and sunny and I was surrounded by amazing, dear friends. And cake!
My twenties were a crazy, silly, frustrating, educational decade for sure. I had some amazing times and I had some devastating times. I am thankful for all those times though because today I am so happy about life and I know my past experiences have taught me so many things. I am slower to jump to conclusions about myself and other people so fast. I am content to let people live their lives the way they want to. I am aware that what makes me happy is not what makes everyone else happy. I don't care so much (ha, maybe when I'm turning 40 I can say "I don't care at all") what other people are thinking about me. I am happy in my own skin. I know I will be alright. Crazy talk. I love it. I am happy right now in my life and I never thought I would be able to say that again and truly mean it. Letting love happen was tricky...I didn't think I could trust that again. With one step at a time I can happily say, scream, I am in love...with life, myself, and even a boy! Cheers to were a good time, but I'm happy to say goodbye!

Back to work!

After yet another getaway (this time to a friends wedding in Mexico) I am ready to get back to work. From what the analysts are projecting, 2012 is going to be a good real estate year. So far numbers are already up from last year at this time, except for home sale prices, which are down and that is a good thing. Finally I am able to say I'm putting my money where my mouth is and I am purchasing a condo in the heart of Bar Harbor. It happens to be the place I've been living for the past two years so I know it will be a good fit. Hopefully I'll be showing by example what a great time it is to purchase real estate!
