Liz Moore agent Ellen Knecht to be featured along with her clients on HGTV’s House Hunters

Posted by Lynnette Tully on Wed, Nov 10, 2021 @ 11:07 AM

HouseHunters_Knecth_Social-1Ellen Knecht, a REALTOR® with the Williamsburg office of Liz Moore & Associates, to be featured along with her clients on HGTV’s House Hunters

Ellen introduced her clients to each other and later she helped them find a home for their blended family!

Ellen’s clients, Laura Mullin and Michael Gasser, were excited to combine their families into a single household. Originally introduced to each other by Ellen Knecht, a REALTOR® with Liz Moore & Associates, Ellen was their first call when they decided to look for a house big enough for their blended family that includes four children.

According to Ellen, HGTV’s House Hunters gets about 200 applications per week, so Laura and Michael were excited when they learned that they were selected. HGTV filmed the couple for a total of 7 days in the Williamsburg area as they searched for their new home.

The crew also filmed at The Sipping Flea, a hometown coffee shop in Toano.

Air date: November 23rd – 10:00PM

Liz Local Magazine: Summer Edition

Posted by Lynnette Tully on Wed, Aug 25, 2021 @ 10:02 AM

LizLocal_Summer2021 coverThe past 15 months has been a roller coaster in our real estate world. It’s hard to imagine that in spite of being in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic, we also experienced the hottest real estate market in US history. The perfect storm of low listing inventory and historic low interest rates converged to cause buyer demand to spike to all-time highs.

Clearly, it’s a great time to be a seller. But… what about the other side of that equation? Sellers are asking themselves, “I may get peak pricing for my home right now, but then I’ll have to turn around and pay peak pricing on the other end. Does that make sense for me?” Every situation is different, and the answer really depends on a lot of different factors. One thing that definitely makes sense, though, is that now is a great time for an in-depth look at values with your favorite REALTOR. If you’re not currently living in your dream home, now just may be the perfect time to explore alternatives.

Other drivers that are causing people to re-think their current space are the possibilities created by new opportunities to work remotely. Many people have realized that they can hang up their commute, and work from home…and that home can be anywhere they want. That freedom extends beyond location – it also means new and different features are important in a home: home offices and outdoor spaces have become all the buzz in recent months.

We’ve devoted this month’s edition of Liz Local to exploring a few of those features.

Choosing a Vet for Your Pet

Posted by Lynnette Tully on Wed, Oct 09, 2019 @ 02:22 PM

Capture-22Your pets are beloved members of your family and you want to make sure they receive the very best medical care. But how do you choose the right vet for your pet? We've outlined some important considerations below when selecting a veterinary practice for your fur baby.

Communication is Key
Ask your friends, family, and neighbors who they recommend. People with first-hand experience are great sources of information and someone who has had a great experience is eager to sing the praises of their veterinarian.

Responsive
Call potential veterinary practices: Do they answer the phone, or if not, do they return your call promptly? Is someone available to answer your questions? Can you easily get an appointment? Are you able to call and check on your pet frequently if they are having a procedure? You want to choose an office that communicates well with their clients.

Philosophies
Ask the veterinarian about their philosophies on pet health care. A few topics to discuss are euthanasia, cancer care, chronic disease planning, and spaying and neutering. Do they mesh with your own? Having a care giver with like­minded philosophies will help when faced with difficult decisions. Observe how they react and respond to your specific questions. Does this seem like someone with whom you'll be able to communicate and trust?

Take a Tour
A good office or hospital is proud of their facility and should be willing to give prospective clients a tour of their facility. Check the cleanliness of exam rooms, check out their medical equipment, do they have access to x-ray, ultrasound, dentistry, labs, and the like? Also, be sure to inquire about health care specific to your pet and any special care they might require. 

Interaction
Introduce your pet to your potential veterinarian and their staff long before your first appointment. Observe how everyone interacts with you and your pet. Are they welcoming, calm, and attentive to you both? Observe how your pet responds to them as well. Choosing a warm and caring practice can soothe a stressful situation for your pet.

Location and Hours
This isn't as important as good, solid care, but convenience is a factor to consider. Choose a vet you can access in a reasonable amount of time, and with hours chat work with your schedule. Choosing a wonderful practice that you can never get to won't do anyone any good.

Busier Can Mean Better
Don't be put off by a busy waiting area. A crowded, fast paced waiting area can be signs of a great, well-liked, hardworking practice.

Money Matters
Vet bills can add up quickly. Be sure to ask about costs of routine care like office visits and vaccines and ask about emergency services like x-ray.
