Sleuthing the Perfect Navy Blue Paint with the Color Snap App

I have been really drawn to the color blue this season, so I am swooning over this recent front door makeover I stumbled upon this AM...

The red berry wreath and the fresh coat of crisp white to the frame and molding they are adding?  Icing on the cake!
I used the nifty Color Snap app-  an incredible free color visualizer that will match anything to the closest Sherwin Williams color- the matches are "In The Navy" and "Anchors Aweigh". 💙

The Late-Summer Scene at the Missouri Botanical Garden...



Paul Cezanne said "Art is a harmony parallel to nature." One of my favorite aspects of the Missouri Botanical Garden is the beautiful relationship and play between the landscape and art installations in every nook and cranny of this city gem.  

While every season in the garden is lovely and special in its own way, the full maturity of late-summer provides a magnificent backdrop for the sculptures with lush volume and spectacular color.  

Steve and I snuck away for a long-overdue morning stroll this week.  A peek...

UNDER CONTRACT: #3028 Cherokee Lane in Saint Charles

It was a terrific weekend for my Sellers...

My fabulous new listing on Cherokee sold in the very 1st weekend on market and closes escrow quickly, in a couple of weeks!  I just knew that it would!  Pair an amazingly swift St. Louis Seller's Market with a beautiful family home that has been loved for over 30 years and Buyers were excited!  This wonderful family worked hand-in-hand with me through preparation and careful timing/marketing strategy and it paid off big time!  

2017 has been an UNBELIEVABLE year for Sellers in St. Louis.  My clients who have taken advantage of the current inventory demand have truly benefited.  As an agent, there is nothing more gratifying than delivering a clean and profitable well-written cash contract to my clients.  This weekend was no exception!  

Congratulations, fabulous S family!  I realize that this transaction is slightly bittersweet and I am humbled by and so appreciative of your trust.  I can't wait to to celebrate with you in a few short weeks at the closing table.  Yippee!
