The Greatest Experience Gilberta Had

I found out on the Internet about them [Sharon and Dwight], and it was really great. The experience that other people had with them helped a lot to get an idea about them. And sure enough, we were very happy with the choice that we made. They were great, they helped us every step of the way, and we’re happy with everything. I would say that they helped us all the time throughout the whole process. But what stuck in my mind is that when we had the inspection done, we weren’t able to be there, so they volunteered. They said, ‘We’ll be there for you,’ and watched the inspection of the house and everything, and that was really great of them, we really appreciate that. I would tell them that this [was] the greatest experience that we had and they will get the job done, definitely. And they’re going to be there for you every time and whenever you need them, even after the closing and everything.

A Quick Stucco Tutorial


I’ve decided to give you an up close and personal look at a new construction build to answer some questions you may have about stucco.

Our attention to detail is second to none, so today I’m outside at a new construction build we’re assisting with to answer some questions you might have about stucco. Follow along with me in the video above to see what I mean.

The front of this home features both stucco siding and lap siding. Aside from a paint job maybe once every 10 years, lap siding is virtually maintenance-free. Stucco siding, on the other hand, can have some maintenance issues from time to time because it’s basically concrete.



Stucco requires some maintenance from time to time because it’s basically concrete.


Most builders use two to three coats of stucco, depending on the kind of finish they’re looking for. For this house, we did three coats: a scratch coat, a smooth coat, and a finish coat. This three-coat process makes for a very sturdy siding.

Stucco also needs to be painted every once and awhile, and because concrete expands and contracts, every now and again you might find a hairline crack in stucco siding.
To fix this, you only need to apply a little bit of caulk over it and paint over that. As you can see, this home has a very smooth stucco finish that’s not very pronounced. More pronounced stucco finishes tend to chip more often.

If you have any more questions about stucco siding or any other real estate topic, don’t hesitate to reach out to me anytime. I’d be happy to help you.

Working With For Buyers Only Is Like a Breeze

Working with them is like a breeze. We got the perfect results that [we] were actually expecting. Working with them is like somebody’s holding your hand every step of the way because we’re first-time homebuyers and we’re very overwhelmed with the entire process. So they made sure that they [were] there for us and we feel that they’re looking after us at every step of the way from [the] documents to the weekly videos that Dwight is [sic] doing for us and also for a lot of the negotiations with the builders. When we were really close at the closing of the house, we wanted to put it off, but we really needed to talk to them so we just texted them. And what happened was Sharon and Dwight I think was [sic] attending a class at that point, but Sharon stepped out of that classroom and then made sure that all our questions about the documents for the closing are [sic] all answered before going back to the class. She could have just probably give [sic] us a call later, but she felt that it’s [sic] important that she answer that time. So whenever we text, call, or anything they just respond so fast to us. For us, [we were] very new to the home buying process. We were really, really thankful that they’re there at every step of the way.
