H & 8th tonight!

Author: Terra  //  Category: Real Estate

As you walk down the street, the smell of food dances in the air. Pausing for a brisk moment you begin to breath in the beautiful aroma. However, the scent is a mixture of foods coming from multiple sources. Your stomach jumps with delight at the realization of choice. The decision is hard considering there are so many options at the food truck festival. You bounce back and forth wondering what could be the best choice for dinner. While there may be some hard food choices, one thing is certain. The feel of community at H & 8th and live music create a special atmosphere for anyone to enjoy. Even pets are allowed at the event. H & 8th is a family friendly environment waiting to entertain all who choose to participate. Community is an important part of what makes Oklahoma such a wonderful place to live. The RED Team wants everyone to take full advantage of the opportunities that surround our homes. We encourage community involvement and hope that the experience is well worth it. We love Oklahoma and wouldn’t want to be anywhere else! Let us know which food trucks are the best! Feel free to call The RED Team with any Questions!

A couple weeks ago, I ventured out and took my twin, four year old boys to get Library cards. I was nervous about keeping them quiet, but excited because my boys love books! They had a blast picking out a couple books a piece to bring home! They also loved getting to play on the computers. There are lots options for children and adults, activity wise, at the Metropolitan Library. There are Storytimes, Family Place: 1,2,3 Play With Me, Baby Lapsits, Parachute Play, Child Guidance Parent Talk, Children Reading to Dogs, and Book Clubs. Check out the website for more information at www.metrolibrary.org and go to the Edmond Library if you have not been! The librarians are very nice and helpful!

Broadway and 33rd construction!

Author: Terra  //  Category: Real Estate

It’s always nice to get home after work. It has been a long day and all you want is to get back and relax with the family. The comfortable lazy boy is calling your name and asking for you to take a nap while watching some television. All you need to do is grab your keys, get in your car and drive home. However you may need to find  a better way to get home if you need to take Broadway or 33rd. On July 20th construction was started  at the intersection of Broadway and 33rd. The project is going to cost around 5.1 million. Broadway is going to be reduced to two lanes in each direction. 33rd is going to be reduced down to one lane. Ultimately the hassle of this construction project isto create more space and efficiency for future drivers. Drivers will still have access to all the businesses around but they should be careful when choosing the time of day. The Red Team just wants to make sure everyone knows about upcoming projects in Edmond! Hopefully this information was helpful! If you have any questions about housing feel free to call us!!

Manliness and Musk.

Author: Terra  //  Category: Real Estate

The smell of lazy boys and musk permeate the air with strength. The sleek looking television takes up most of the wall. It bestows a glorious high definition light on anyone who dares to bask in the manhood that makes up this beautiful cave. Each piece of furniture begs to comfort the highest quality of company. The home entertainment system booms with delight as it graces each ear with the crisp sound. The cave screams of manliness and graces each person with warm embrace. This is only one version of a man cave. However, The Red Team knows that each person desires a slightly different style of man cave. What kinds of things would you put in a man cave? We would love to hear opinions and even see pictures! If you’re looking for a new home with a potential man cave call The Red Team!!
