The use of essential oil's for medicine has been around for centuries.
Today I will share with you how oregano oil and Melissa oil removed a wart.
After being diagnosed and receiving a prescription for traditional medicine I decided to go to my essential oil cabinet instead.
The results were quick and non-toxic !
If you're interested in hearing more about essential oil's or my personal journey I would love to share.
I preferred to use doTERRA and I would be happy to tell you why.

Today's episode is a very short conversation about myth busting Real estate perception. There so many people that earn a real estate license or dream to get a real estate license and think that business is just going to come by osmosis. Trust me when I say it's going to take a minimum of 3 to 5 years for things to just flow your way. Work the hours or spend the money is the best advice I can give you. I was lucky enough to start on a strong team with an amazing mentor. My suggestion is take every class you can, treat this as a career not a job, and be willing to commit to the hours.

I know this is going to sound very simple to some I have to tell you I cannot count the number of homes I have gone in and people do not see the detail cleaning that could be done. Kitchen and baths will make or break a sale many times. If your competeing with an as is sale price in your neghborhood then why would you want your home to look like its going to be an as is sale as well. Take time to clean and detail the home. Declutter and get organized. Hire a stagger to help you. If need be get some contractors in there to make your house pop with style. Simple things like new pulls and hinges in the kitchen do help. Its sometimes all the little things that make a buyer say yes.

Vince Murray with Tidewater Mortgage services
Is refinancing your home a good idea even if you’ve been in the house for a short period of time?
Yes, the rates are in the 4’s now and it makes sense especially if you go with a 15 year loan. These rates are lower, sometime by a ½ % or more for a “par” rate comparison.
Par is the going rate without paying any discount points to achieve that rate- meaning”0” points to buy down the rate. [You can pay up front to lower the interest rate.]
In some instances the switch to a 15 year rate does not increase the monthly payment that much, especially if the client has paid on the 30 year note for a few years. With the reduced loan amount and the new reduced mortgage rate sometimes it can actually be lower per month.
A recent loan I had done involved a single woman that had paid 8 years into a 30 year loan. I was able to knock off 7 years of the loan and reduced the payments by about $93 a month. She had financed less money for a shorter term and at a better rate. I believe that it was less than 2 % difference in the two loan rates.
This same woman referred a neighbor of hers to me. In this case, her neighbor refinanced the original 30 year loan amount for 15 years and kept the cash difference to apply to some remodeling work. Her payment went up $106 a month, but knocked 8 years off her loan, and she was able to pay for the cost of the remodeling job. These are probably two exceptions to the general rule, but a 15 year loan saves so much money that it is worth it in the long run if you can afford the difference, since the rates are so low now.
Whether it is a new purchase or a Refi, the time is now. When the government decides the value of the dollar is too low or you hear the word inflation in the news a few times during a weeks’ period, watch out- higher rates will follow the next week. I try to encourage people to act now and find out what can done for them because I don’t want them to say, “I wish I had refinanced when the rates were lower.” I know that has happened to me on more than a few occasions. The rates are at an all-time low now and it brings great satisfaction helping people get the most for their money. Especially afterwards when they say “that was easier than I thought.”
Since completing the new testing and licensing requirements, I am more excited about the mortgage business. The new changes have been very positive. I have been receiving more new referrals and I can say that I have made many great new acquaintances. It’s nice to be involved in a business where you can help people actually find “new” money by refinancing or by giving them a peace of mind that they are getting the best deal available on buying their house.

Clear the Clutter
BEKINS A-1 MOVERS
Certified Moving Consultant
OVERVIEW: Discounted storage program designed to help realtors and homeowners clear the "extra stuff" hanging around a house to sell it faster and for more money.
It's almost impossible to sell a house without renting a "POD" or self storage unit. Many home owners don't have the time and/or energy to pack, load and transport furniture and boxes to self storage units in a timely manner to get things out of the way before the house is listed. Communities are also cracking down on portable storage devices sitting in driveways for extended periods of time and may not allow them at all. Plus, even with it sitting in the front yard, many are getting broken in to.Bekins A-1, is offering a program where they bring out large storage crates that they pack and load and then bring back to their local storage facility, where they keep your belongings in a secure, regulated climate until your home is sold.The cost per crate is $250.00. This includes Bekins providing 10 boxes (packing them for the customer), loading boxes and furniture into the crate and storing for two months. After two months of storage, the cost is only $35.00 per crate, per month. Once the house is sold, Bekins A-1 can handle the "big move" whether it's locally, out of state, or international.Courtney can come out to the house to provide a free estimate, not just for the storage crates, but also price out the Big Move, so the homeowner can create a moving budget.Courtney also does presentations for Realty Offices in Hampton Roads for realtors wanting more information.
