Like most young ladies in my day, I had the standard dollhouse on the left to play with. Furniture, little plastic figurines. I added my own touches with odds & ends that I collected from gumball machines. My fav was the little hot dog...not exactly to scale but I didn't care.
In spite of my shoes, I'm not much taller today than I was back then. The daughter of one of my clients told her parents to send her picture to the 'little girl that looks like a big
I am hoping to list one in the next week or so. Every listing isn't eligible to be a dollhouse. Not even all MY listings are dollhouses. They are unique, hard to find properties that bring out the 'little girl' in this agent. Properties that I make me feel like staying. Every square foot is utilized to it's utmost potential! The furniture and dishes are eclectic, pillows you can't help but pick up and look at, a listing to linger in.
You schedule a showing and arrive earlier than your buyer so you can walk through and look around some more. You just LIKE being there.

Of course, some will ask...'Wasn't this listed with Mr. Discount Broker?' They will make noises about the price, try to disqualify it in some way. I know the deal.
Kiss my grits. I'm getting paid on this one, and we all know it!
