Live, Work and Play in Edmond!

Author: Terra  //  Category: Real Estate

Who do I call if I have questions regarding city park plans? Do I live in Edmond? Where can I find out info about zoning? Who are our Edmonds elected officials? What is going in at Covell and I-35? Those are just a few of the questions that we received the answers to during our lunch at the Edmond Chamber. Plug in to Edmond was one of the most informative lunch and learns I have ever attended. Toni Weinmeister from Edmond Economic Development Authority, EEDA, and Casey Moore with the Edmond Chamber of Commerce informed the group of many exciting new changes and additions for the city of Edmond.

Here are just a few of the fun facts we learned:

  • 33rd and Broadway is the busiest intersection in Edmond! The city of Edmond is starting a expansion of that intersection in the Spring. So BEWARE, I’m sure it will be crazy with the construction going on but will only help the traffic in the long run.
  • Mayor and City Council- Charles Lamb is our Mayor, if you didn’t know, and the City Councilmen are Darrell Davis, Elizabeth Waner, Nick Massey and Victoria Caldwell.
  • Population estimate of Edmond in 2013 was 84,524 and for Oklahoma City it was 1,303,109
  • We have more than 30 parks or outdoor venues in Edmond. That’s so cool!
  • Our sales tax is what funds Edmond. Go eat and shop in Edmond! The city is working on giving us more options to choose from so we can support our great city.
  • Want to find out what the open field behind your home is zoned? Go to EEDA.com and click map room.
  • The total annual income for Edmond’s city limits is estimated to be more than $3.2 billion.
  • More than 1000,00 college students are within a 45 minute drive of Edmond.
  • In 2013 4,149 existing homes were SOLD and 613 new home building permits were issued!

Go to EEDA.com for a ton more information or go to EdmondOK.com. You can find answers to all the questions above plus more, it is ALL on their websites! Below is map, with the boundaries of Edmond and all the projects in process.

The sellers of 4800 October Drive in Arbor Creek decided to go ahead and reduce the price of their home to $348,777.00 because they are quickly being relocated out of town for work. The sellers started the building process with McGregor Homes in late 2013 and moved into the home just six months ago. They are sad they have been relocated and have to move out of state from this new construction home that they love so much. As seen on NewsOK today, Inc. Magazine placed “McGregor Homes in the top 600 fastest-growing U.S. private companies”. Scott McGregor stated that “We like using architectural styles that are near and dear to people’s hearts”. That is so true and you can see it in his work on this home in particular. There is no detail spared in 4800 October Dr. This outstanding and move in ready home has 4 beds, 2 baths, 1 dining plus bar seating, and a screened in patio make up this perfect Del Mar floor plan shown below of 2278 sf mol.

Phases of Energy from BOLD

Author: Terra  //  Category: Just for Fun, Miscellaneous

Kiley, Kim and I have all gone through a real estate program to better ourselves in real estate. It has been great in so many different ways for each of us. As some of you know, I am in a referral group here in Edmond and this morning, I shared a little about the “Phases of Energy” from our past BOLD program. These energy phases can impact daily life or your business.  We have to remind ourselves daily to stay passionate, joyful, peaceful, compassionate, and responsible or we will come off the wrong way to our clients, co workers, family and friends!

Phases of Energy

  1. Victim – this is where you are one step away from WHY ME to woe is ME.
  2. Conflict/Anger – this one can be felt from blocks away even if they are not angry with you.
  3. Responsibility – don’t you wish everyone had this energy throughout the day.
  4. Compassion – people that show this energy allow people to feel love.
  5. Peace – this energy allows people to be who they choose to be without judgment
  6. Joy – just think about living a game called the perfect game. Where everything for an entire day is perfect and you are joyous about what is happening all day long
  7. Passion – this is the highest of all energies. Gratitude is a form of passion. When we are in gratitude we are vibrating at an energetic scales that people are attracted to.

Don’t you want to be #3-7 all the time. It really makes you think. You and I both need to remind ourselves about the phases of energy on a regular basis so we are not putting out a BAD vibe to our clients, family, friends and co workers! STAY POSITIVE and I PROMISE IT WILL BE BENEFICIAL to each one of you who take action!
