Welcome to my Real Estate Blog!

What is happening in the world of real estate is really important.  Real estate drives the economy all the time.  It is something that never goes away because even when a person is homeless they need somewhere to live.  

We have seen some very challenging times in the market, we have seen some very lucrative times in the market as well.  I hope you find my posts uplifiting and encouraging.  We get enough bad news right?  

If there is a particular topic related to real estate you would like to see me blog about let me know.  I always encourage feedback to Lynne@LynneRuffin.com.

Here Comes the Neighborhood

Posted by: Lynne Ruffin

There are a couple of new businesses in Norfolk, Virginia.  They have a Wal-Mart and a WaWa on Princess Anne Road now.  It is great seeing so many new businesses coming our way.

I have lived in the Ballentine Neighborhood for over 20 years and I am very happy to see this welcome change.  It is great having somewhere to shop where the prices are very reasonable.  Even so much so I can buy some regular items at prices less than the other grocers I was shopping at.

The price of butter per pound is a baker’s paradise.  My mother is always sending me to buy butter for her baking and the other baking products are very reasonably priced as well.  

It is very convenient having the stores real close to home.  They are within walking distance to my house and hopefully my home will be sold by the time the weather gets really warm, however it is withing a good walking distance from my mother’s house as well.  Most definitely foresee getting my exercise on by walking to these locations when the weather gets warmer.

I really am thankful both companies decided to set up shop in our neighborhood.

New Real Estate Website: HomesForSale.C21.com

Posted by: Lynne Ruffin

Dear Prospective Client(s):

Today I am spending the day setting up my new real estate website which is very similiar now to the branding of our parent Century 21 Real Estate system website.  One of the things I love about being a real estate agent with Century 21 is that the branding they have for the agents and our inventory (real estate listings) I have always felt is second to none.  

Anyone who knows me knows I love tech stuff.  When I received the email in regards to a new look for my C21 website it gave me a renewed purpose for today.  My passion has always been the online marketing we are blessed with to market our listings, other listings avaialable via the multiple listing service, and ourselves.  All are important in trying to gain new customers, clients, and business transactions.

If you are looking to partner with a real estate agent who is all about presenting your home in a most professional manner always let me know.  You can reach me direct at (757) 932-0053 any time.

Very respectfully,
