505 North and South Unit 3-B, University City SOLD CLOSED

This one took a while to close, though it finally did today!  My clients wrote on this Short Sale back in early May.  I was told a Short Sale could take 6 months…we did it in 4!  Definitely only do a Short Sale purchase if you are patient. Purchases of foreclosures from banks, Fannie Mae or the FDIC are a lot quicker….in fact the quicker and the more cash …the better.

I really like this condo….so close to Clayton.



Before & After

Crepes Etc

Breakfast out is such a treat. The other day I took one of my sons to Crepes Etc in the CWE on Maryland Plaza. The crepes are yummy, though don't miss the Cheese Pancakes made with ricotta cheese and topped with lemon curd.




Red Castor Beans

After being beaten down all summer by the heat and lack of rain, the annuals are perking up for a last hurrah! I was out at our farm in Pike County Missouri yesterday and admired my Red Castor Bean plant.  I love the bright red pods. Every year I harvest the seeds from these pods and use them again next year. I also gather the dried zinnia flowers and reuse their seeds.
