Hurricane Season 2014 – Are You Ready?

June 21, 2014

The 2014 Hurricane Season began June 1 and will run through November 30. While Meteorologists have declared 2014 a light season for the Southeast, that is by no means an excuse to be unprepared. With 6 counties bordering the Atlantic Ocean, South Carolina is one of nation’s most vulnerable to hurricanes and tropical storms.

Knowing how to prepare for a hurricane saves lives. If an evacuation order is issued, please heed the warning. No home, boat, or hurricane party is worth your life, or the life of your loved ones. Pay close attention to warnings; listen to the radio and watch your local TV stations for weather alerts. Have a plan and follow it.

If you do have to evacuate, make sure to alert at least one member of your family, or a close friend of your travel plans. If possible, stay with family or friends living closer inland, instead of going to a shelter. Fill your gas tank prior to the evacuation order, take important papers, as well as cash (in the event ATMs are down due to power outage), a gallon or two of water, and some nonperishable food with you in the event of lenthy evacuation times due to heavy traffic.

Above all, please be safe.

Memorial Day: Acknowledging the Ultimate Sacrifice

May 26, 2014

Memorial Day – the day America humbly gives thanks to those men and women who lost their lives while serving in our country’s military. You and I can freely enjoy countless privileges envied by many other countries. Our Constitution grants our rights as citizens of the United States; however, let us never forget how these rights were earned by those who fought and died, so we may live the lives we choose today.

The traditional moment of honor is 3:00 PM on Memorial Day. At that time, please stop and give thanks. Pray for the gift of life given, for the families who lost their loved ones, for the safety of those serving now, for their families, and for our citizen rights and freedoms earned by those who sacrifice so much every day.

While we’re at it, let‘s do our best to not wait until after a service man or woman is lost to give our sincere thanks. Whenever we see a man or woman in uniform, whether military, public safety, fire or emergency, let’s strive to let them and their families know that we and our families truly and deeply appreciate their daily sacrifice.

Alien Clouds Over Columbia, SC?

April 19, 2014

 

Have you seen them? You know – those alien-looking yellow clouds blowing across the Midlands these past couple of weeks? Winter is (hopefully) finally over and here come the beautiful flowers and blooming trees, along with their means of procreation. Yes, plant love (aka pollen) is everywhere. Can you hear the sneezing? Why, I think I even have pollen in my shoes!

Ah, ’tis the season – of sneezing, watery eyes, and yellow, yellow, everywhere! Well, I’m off to find some local honey to help build my immunity to those pesky alien clouds …or so I’ve been told.  

Happy Spring, everyone!!

Take the Next Step in Your Home Search

February 23, 2014

 

Viewing homes online saves time and money and allows you to find ones that might best suit your needs. So, browse away; but don’t let that be your only source of information about the homes. Online viewing is a great tool to help you find homes in one or more cites (such as Columbia or Lexington, South Carolina), subdivision, or even certain lifestyle communities (like Lake Murray or golf course communities). Online searches also allow you to narrow your search by specific criteria, including the number of bedrooms and/or baths, or home construction style; however, it cannot provide all the information you need to make your decision. And buying a new home is a very big decision. Once you’ve viewed several homes and find a few favorites, it’s then time for the next step – taking a personal look.

Only by visiting the homes can you truly see what the homes have to offer. Walking from room to room gives the full grasp of the home’s space and flow. You can plan the best angle for the sofa, see how much sun shines through the bedroom windows, or determine the best spot for Aunt Bessie’s antique writing desk.

Yes, technology provides a great time-saving tool to help search homes that could fit your needs. But, when you find your favorites, it’s then time to call your REALTOR® and take an up-close-and-personal look. Don’t have a REALTOR® yet? Call Team Bouleris at 803-210-9595. We’ll work with you to schedule your personal tours so you can select the best home for you. We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Be a Surprise Valentine

February 11, 2014

Ah, Valentine’s Day. The day we let our special ones know just how much we love them. With luxurious candy, fragrant flowers, and beautifully embossed cards that put our deepest feelings into words we cannot. Love is a gift; a wonderful gift that we cannot hoard or hide away or keep in a shoebox on the highest shelf in a dark closet. No, love is a gift that we can only truly enjoy when we give it away to others.

Let’s all give love away this Valentine’s Day. But let’s be daring about it. Let’s be “Surprise Valentines.” I wonder what would happen if we all gave a little love to complete strangers. Imagine the smile on your server’s face when you surprise him with your lunch tip folded inside a cookie-shaped Valentine’s Day card. Imagine a single mom standing just a little stronger when you surprise her with a Super Woman card. Imagine the lift you would get, when the cashier at the supermarket hands you a valentine, simply saying you are appreciated.

Giving love is simple. Surprising someone with love is exhilarating. Will you be someone’s surprise valentine this Valentine’s Day?
