Wow, it’s hard to believe this blog has been on hold for six months! And frankly, limping along for the past year. As you may know, my life & business were pretty shaken up by the events in Ferguson, so I’ve been in recovery/rebuild mode ever since.
But I’m not here to dwell on that. I’m here to celebrate a fresh start!
First off, I want to announce that I have a real estate team now! Rather than work as a solo agent, I’m joined by my husband, Keith Howard, and our friend, Scott Saputo, and we’re the Howard Team specializing in vintage & unique houses: 1890s – 1980s.
I used to say “vintage” was 1960s or earlier, but now that I live in St. Charles and am surrounded by amazing properties from the 70s & 80s, I’m stretching my timeline a bit. I’ve also realized that this encompasses many homes with the same typical old house issues I deal with all the time, and I can share that knowledge with buyers & sellers.
As for STL Homes with Soul, I’m also switching gears. Unlike the previous blog that focused almost exclusively on actively listed properties, this new incarnation will be more varied, with a mix of houses for sale, articles on old house parts & systems, lifestyle pieces on DIY, decor & gardening, and fun field notes about real estate & other adventures.
For the first time ever, Keith will be blogging too! He’s currently working on an article about classic 1950s cabinet pulls, and I think you’ll find him very entertaining.
Our goal is to post at least twice a week, here and on Facebook, so I hope you’ll check in again soon and visit with us frequently. I also hope you’ll contact the Howard Team for all your real estate needs. Thank you very much!
