October is here! The 6 of us spent some time carving pumpkins. We had the perfect weather and some good Halloween music. Which one is your favorite? Make sure to head over to our Facebook Page and VOTE for your favorite pumpkin. Who doesn't love a good contest?

Part of striving to be the absolute best resource for our clients’ and friends’ needs is having a go-to professional partner for everything real estate related.
We’ve got a GREAT group of contractors that are part of the Team Morrell family already, but as we continue to grow, we need MORE and BETTER...and that’s where YOU come in!
When choosing a vendor, OUR mission & vision MUST align with the mission & vision of our vendors. We are ABSOLUTELY COMMITTED to providing an EXCEPTIONAL CUSTOMER SERVICE EXPERIENCE to YOU & we want our partners to feel the same!
Here’s where we could use your help!
We are looking for your suggestions for the BEST of the BEST local professionals that you have personally used and been THRILLED with!
...Electricians, Plumbers, General Contractors, Deck Specialists, Landscapers, Painters, Roofers, Surveyors, Interior Designers, Flooring Specialist, Handymen, and everything in between!
We highly value your suggestions and are SO THANKFUL for your help! Once we’ve compiled our list, interviewed the referrals, & whittled it down to the BEST OF THE BEST, we’d love to share!
In my previous Facebook post, I mentioned briefly how Keller Williams Baxter Village and Team Morrell have adopted Brooklyn Springs Elementary School in Lancaster, SC as one of our local outreach programs. Brooklyn Springs is a Title 1 school, with 98% free or reduced lunch located right in our back yard.
With the donations of friends, vendor partners, and Keller Williams’ agents, we brought the gift of giving to 524 children this Christmas! Because of everyone's generosity, we were also able to raise $8,500 to send the entire 5th grade to Camp Thunderbird!
In order to attend camp, every camper needed a sleeping bag and very few of them had one. We were a bit hesitant to come back to you with another request for help so soon, but our Fort Mill community came through in a big way once again!
We are SO thankful for your kind and generous spirit; you’re providing an experience that these kids will never forget!
Make sure to consider that the size of the rooms in your home will fit you and your lifestyle. Imagine furniture placement, even bring measurements to ensure everything will fit where you want it to!
The interior floor plan can have an ENORMOUS effect on your daily life. Walk through each room, imagining every step in your day to day routine- does the natural traffic pattern go between Dad’s seat and the television? Are there enough ways in and out of the kitchen? Or is there a natural flow that will allow for a comfortable lifestyle?
External factors such as adjacent buildings and trees & the direction your home faces can affect how much sun reaches a house & into particular rooms. It’s so important to look at window/ skylight placement, size, and amount. Filtering sunlight throughout the house can make your home feel BIGGER, BRIGHTER, and most importantly, prevent you from feeling like a caveman!
Assuming you’re buying in the Carolina's, where nothing can be finer….but it tends to get a bit balmy in the summer. Be sure to consider the following: are there shady areas with trees around your home & neighborhood? If there’s a detached garage, is there a covered walkway to keep you dry while bringing groceries into the house?
It’s smart to consider the quality of school districts when in the home buying market whether or not you have kids. Living in a good school district not only brings BETTER teachers and HIGHER test scores, but it can also preserve home values and ensure faster resale rates in the future.
Why does location matter? You can’t easily move your home! When you purchase a home in a GREAT location, it’s usually makes for a solid long-term investment.
It’s best to buy the worst house on the best block. Why?? Because fixing up a home that needs a little TLC in a great neighborhood will give you the best return on your investment.
It may be fine for your children to share a bathroom when they’re small, but as I learned as the father of four girls – a peaceful morning is a rare occurrence if teenagers don’t have their own space when getting ready for school.
It’s important to consider how many people you’ll be living with& your daily routines (is everyone going to be getting ready at the same time each morning?). Is there a possibility of an elderly parent moving in with you in the future? Making sure you have the right amount of bathrooms in your home is ESSENTIAL.
BEAUTIFUL HOME, GORGEOUS NEIGHBORHOOD, and BAM! Your neighbors. Before purchasing, take a walk around the neighborhood and get to know your neighbors. Do they have similar interests, do they have similar aged children, and are they rowdy or more low-key? These are all key things to consider and can have a HUGE IMPACT on your overall happiness in your home.
What does your neighborhood have to offer? Have you taken a look at the amenities…pools, gym, club house? Is there nearby public transportation? Does the neighborhood border a busy highway- does this disrupt your daily routine? Drive your morning commute before purchasing to make sure that you’re fully aware of what rush hour traffic may look like.
It’s so important to take the time to choose the right real estate agent. After all, your agent should be your advocate to ensure you get THE HIGHEST PRICE for your real estate, sell in the QUICKEST AMOUNT OF TIME, and with the LEAST HASSLE POSSIBLE.
