All That Sparkles Is Not Gold

Realtor Bob Timm

 

When I looked out the window at my office I was really surprised to see all the sparkle out there... not Gold but snow sparkling like diamonds. This picture is not photo-shopped in any way.

When you are shopping for a that "diamond" of a home don't be fooled by the cubic zirconiums out there being presented as diamonds. Research a builders reputation, check on the quality of materials, contact the City Inspections office and see if they have had issues with anything tied to the builder, home, or development. All of us have been taken in at times by appearances... don't let it happen to you with such an important purchase as your families home.

I, Bob Timm, am proud of the reputation I've built, I'm proud of the Builders I represent and the Developments they have built. If you would like to learn more about quality building then stop by the model home at Highlands at North Hill (2424 Landmark Drive, Minot ND) and we will talk.

Bob "RealMan" Timm Nicely done! Excellent tie-in to an amazing photo. The image actually looks like sand with quartz sprinkled throughout it to me.

I wish it was a sandy beach Lauren Williams, CPO , I'm really tired of winter. Thank you for the compliment on the photo.

Currently we are about 8 degrees warmer than predicted @William (40 above) so we are seeing some melting as well.

Good evening Bob "RealMan" Timm ,

A wonderful post. Buyers can be blinded by the sparkle and be disappointed later. Good analogy with the amazing photo!

HI Bob "RealMan" Timm - Great post!  I took a video of those sparkles one morning after a snow. Your post ties so well with that picture. KUDOS!

Thanks Sheri Sperry - MCNE® , if it looks the same tomorrow morning I'm going to steal your idea and make a video.

Great tie-in Bob "RealMan" Timm when the skies give you snow, turn a beautiful snow photo into a marketing blog.  Well done!

Thank you Lisa Von Domek . I hope it won't be to long until I can give an analogy about spring flowers or something warm weather related.

We here in sunny and bright Tucson have to be careful when WE look out a window. First rule...find the sunglasses!

Morning Bob.

It's cool here now, warmer weather and winds coming from the south we know things will heat up soon.  Snow this time of the year is one thing we don't see, thankfully

Posted by James Dray, Exceptional Agents, Outstanding Results (Fathom Realty AR LLC) 3 months ago

That's a great point Jon Quist ! Snow on a sunny day can be very blinding. In your case I'm sure it's the intensity of the sun, not the reflection of it.

James Dray when I was a kid I loved visiting my uncle in Berryville AR over Easter as everything was green and in bloom.

Watch out for genuine imitation. Got it Bob "RealMan" Timm ! Don't take any wooden nickels either.

I wonder if anyone under 30 even knows what that means any more Andrew Mooers | 207.532.6573 ? I think I still have a few saloon related ones around.

Love the glittering post!  And the reminder to look past the glitter when searching for a builder.

Posted by Alesha A. Wilson, M.Ed., MRP, Buy and Sell with Confidence (Buy and Sell Oklahoma LLC) 3 months ago

Thank you Alesha A. Wilson, M.Ed., MRP . It's really hard to get 1st time home buyers to look past the glitter.
